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)

about 80 operations a day.He has been conducting such free camps for
