Dr.Sharadkumar Dicksheet
"An alumni of Nizam College is the fastest Plastic surgeon in the world"

An Alumni of Nizam College who discontinued his B.Sc., to study medicine has now the distinction of conducting over 45,000 plastic surgeries in a career spanning more than four decades.

His body was paralyzed in a car crash in Fairbanks, Alaska and later he was diagnosed to be suffering from cancer of the larynx. But Dicksheet overcame all these problems ,quit his lucrative job as plastic surgeon in New York and devoted himself to the India programme he began in the late 60's.

He is so fast that doctors record his surgeries and play them back in slow motion to study them. He has been repeatedly nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for devoting his life to fixing the deformed faces of Indian poor. He has also been nominated to the Gandhi peace prize, the Rawl Wallenberg Prize, Concord Hilton Foundation Award & the Kellogg's Hamnah world of Children Award.

Dr.Dicksheet is now based in New York .Every year he spends a few months in India running free surgical camps for those with clef lips, squints, burns, scars and deformed noses.

He is now in Hyderabad on a mission to do something to the city which gave him education. He is organising  a free plastic surgery camp in Hyderabad from 2nd -6th January. Organised by the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad Alumni Association Hyderabad chapter (IIM-AAA-HC) in coordination with CDR Hospitals. The 72-year -old Dicksheet conducts about 80 operations a day.He has been conducting such free camps for the last 19 years in the country and its the fourth consecutive year that the camp is being organised in the state.

appreciates the gratitude of this Hyderabadi to his city and we hope that more and more such Hyderabadis do come back on such humanitarian missions.
