“There is no such thing as a ‘self-made man’. We are made up of Thousands of Others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us or spoken one word of encouragement, has entered into the make-up of our character, thoughts and our success.” quotes Dr Abhishek Sachdev.
An Orthopaedic Surgeon whose passion about his work can be seen in the zealous way he deals with his patients. A resident of Raipur, he completed his schooling from St Xavier’s School, Raipur. He went on for his MBBS Degree from LMCH, Nagpur & later did his Masters in Orthopaedic Surgery from DY Patil, Pune. He has attended numerous workshops and CMEs in India , which have helped him acquire the latest surgical skills and knowledge. His special interest rests in Joint Replacement and Arthroscopy. Last year he has finished his observership in Shoulder and Knee Arthroscopy from the esteemed Kasturba Hospital, Manipal. As of now he is in the process of going to Bremen, Germany for another advanced learning in his field of surgery.
Talking about how Dr Sachdev is different from every other doctor next door, is the fact that he is a part of family of 8 doctors and feels his parents, Dr Gurumukh Sachdev & Dr Kalpana Sachdev, are his biggest inspiration and support. He is fond of music, movies , pets, cycling, reading books, photography having plethora never ending traits which include his travelling fervor. He considers travelling as the best form of self discovery.
He is deeply spiritual & recalls the book– ‘The teachings of Bhagvad Geeta’ by Swami Dayananda Saraswati as his greatest source of wisdom and inspiration. Occasionally he muses on his life’s journey and scribbles them in the form of poetry. His favourite poem is by Robert Frost ‘The Road not Taken’. If this isn’t enough to put Dr Sachdev in a different league of doctors then it is to be mentioned that he has been trying his hands on Guitar and will definitely master it in the days to come.
Dr Abhishek Sachdev is currently working as an Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon in his own Hospital- Sachdev Nursing Home & Diagnostic Centre.
Being philanthropic he has been a part of Art of Living community since 2010, and is working with JCI Raipur Medico City Raipur for various camps and social activities.
