Ahmedabad : Dr. Ganesh Gorthi, a leader in the fields of robotic bariatric, gastrointestinal, and minimally invasive surgery, was honoured with The Pride of India Award on Saturday at an event in Ahmedabad.
Dr. Gorthi has pushed the limits of robotic surgery to new heights with his extensive expertise in the United States, the United Kingdom, the Middle East, and India.

In addition, he received education and experience with surgical robotic systems from the United States, the United Kingdom, and India at facilities in the United States, the United Kingdom, the Middle East, and India.

Dr. Gorthi, the current Head of the Department of Robotic Surgery in Hyderabad, is widely regarded as one of the best robotic surgeons in the world. He has more than 20 years of clinical experience doing robotic surgery in India and abroad.
To recognise those whose outstanding efforts are advancing India, the Pride of India Award was created. Dr. Ganesh Gorthi deserves this recognition because he is an inspiration in the fields of medicine and public service. “His accomplishments are a source of inspiration for everyone, and we are so grateful that he agreed to be honoured by The Pride of India,” said Maharshi Desai, the organization’s founding president.
“Being honoured with the Pride of India Award is both humbling and rewarding. This honour is a testament to the tireless work of the medical community to better the lives of millions of people all over the world, not only the thousands of people whose care I have personally improved thanks to this award. Dr. Gorthi said he was humbled to accept the honour in the innovative and industrious state of Gujarat.
