I qualified and underwent General Surgical Training in the Madras Medical College and Hospital. I continued his cardiothoracic training in the UK on the British Council Fellowship (Manchester, Glasgow & Coventry) and obtained the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2000.

I underwent my higher surgical training in Cardiothoracics with a focus on thoracic surgery in the West Midlands Cardiothoracic Training programme (FRCSEd (CTh) 2006) in Birmingham, then underwent a period of research studying the Proteomics in Lung Cancer at the University of Birmingham.
I was appointed as a Consultant Thoracic Surgeon in Leicester in 2009. I became an Honorary Senior Lecturer in the University of Leicester in 2017.

My practice includes all aspects of thoracic surgery with a special interest in parenchyma preserving oncological lung resections, chest wall surgery and surgery for emphysema including endobronchial valves and coils.
