Brief Profile  

Dr Kanwaljeet Garg is an AIIMS alumnus. He joined AIIMS, New Delhi, the most prestigious and competitive medical school in India in 2001. He joined M.Ch. Neurosurgery residency (6 years) in 2008 at AIIMS, New Delhi itself. He had an excellent academic and surgical record throughout his residency training with many publications in both national and international journals in residency. He has also presented his work at various scientific meetings in India and abroad, which has resulted in best paper awards. He was awarded the ISPN travelling fellowship to present his research. He has also won the first prize for “microsuturing and microneural anastamosis” and “high speed drilling” at the 13th Neurosurgery skills training workshop held at AIIMS. After completing his neurosurgical residency in 2014, he joined a one year long clincial fellowship “Combined Spine Surgery” at the Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, Calgary (Canada), under the mentorship of world renowned spine surgeons like Prof John Hurlbert and Prof Jacques Bouchard. He refined his skills in spine surgery during this fellowship and also learned the art of minimal invasive spine surgery at a high volume centre. He was about to start another fellowship in spine surgery with Prof Richard Fessler and Prof Vincent Traynelis at Rush University, Chicago (USA) but he got selected and joined as an Assistant Professor, Department of Neurosurgery at AIIMS in July 2015. He is well versed in all aspects of neurosurgery with special interest in Spine surgery, surgery for Movement disorders and Stereotactic Radiosurgery (Gamma Knife). He has keen research interest and has been working on many projects.
