He worked as a junior resident in the departments of General Surgery, Obstetrics, and Orthopedic Surgery in Bethesda mission hospital, Ambur for 2 years and 3 months. It was here where his love for Orthopedic surgery grew and so did his love for movement.
He completed his post-graduate training in Orthopedic and trauma surgery in the famous Southern Railways Head Quarters Hospital, Chennai. He was selected to train in Celle, Germany under Prof Hans Jorg Oestern where he completed his fellowship in joint replacements and then went on to Srilanka to enroll and complete his P.hD in sports medicine.

His practice primarily involves Hybrid Joint Replacements, Arthroscopic surgeries of knee and shoulder, minimal access procedures of spine and neck, ultrasound-guided sports injury interventions, varicose vein laser treatment, and musculoskeletal stem cell and PRP procedures.
He also heads the post covid19 functional rehab clinic and is a part of the senior intensive care team. He was instrumental in conducting plasma trials during covid19 at his hospital of work.
As his interest in Regenerative Medicine and stem cells grew and as his practice involved a lot of platelet-rich plasma and sports injuries he pursued his board certification in Regenerative medicine at the prestigious American Board Of Regenerative medicine.
He currently is the academic director of the American Board of Regenerative Medicine, India Chapter. His role is to further the cause, education, and research in the field of Regenerative medicine.
