The Neurosurgery department at the Goa Medical College completes forty glorious years. Dr V.N Jindal must be credited with giving birth to the Neurosurgery department and remarkably over the years taking it to immense heights from scratch. What started with four beds and no equipment, the Goa Medical College is today one amongst only twelve hospitals in the country having Super Specialty training in Neurosurgery.
On the 31st July 2014, Dr Jindal retired as the Dean of Goa Medical College after his long and magnificent association with one of Asia’s oldest medical colleges. He needs to be commended for the wonderful combination of both professional and personal attention that he has been rendering with passion and empathy to every patient. He has been a God sent invaluable gift to Goa.
The very distinguished Dr Jindal’s mission of saving lives through neurosurgery now continues under Dr Ponraj Sundaram who currently heads the Neurosurgery department at the Goa Medical College.
May this pioneering legacy of Dr Jindal which has withstood the test of time and continued to flourish and benefit and enhance the lives of many.
