The surgeon also stated,”My vision started 27 years ago when I was working in Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi in 1996 and it struck me that how can I carry this technology present in the advanced medical infrastructures of Delhi to the people of Jammu and kashmir who cannot travel all the way to Delhi or other Metropolitan cities for this procedure and deliver it at their door steps via various local hospitals. So we started to conduct various laparoscopic camps all over the state and now after more than 3 decades this procedure is easily affordable and approachable in all the districts by the citizens of Jammu and Kashmir.”
Dr Attri look forward to introduce fat reduction surgery procedure for obesity (Bariatric surgery) which he has already conducted in tertiary health care hospitals like GMC Srinagar so that the marginalised sections of our society can take benefit of this.”
