Dr. Anand Somaya


37 Year(s) experience


Dr. Anand Somaya finished schooling at Lawrence School, Lovedale and completed his undergraduate and post graduate medical studies at the prestigious Armed Forces Medical College in Pune. He then joined the army and spent two years in Ladakh treating multiple casualties of 1971 Indo Pak War. His operation theatre was at 17000 ft and was considered the highest in the world. The theatre was underground and extremely well equipped and all kinds of severe trauma cases from the battlefield were operated there before being sent down to the larger hospitals in Srinagar and Delhi. After serving for 8 years in the Army as a General Surgeon and attaining a rank of Major, he left the armed forces and joined the Bombay Hospital in 1978 in the department of cardio vascular surgery under the then doyen of cardiac surgery in India, Dr. Nemish A. Shah. He then did a fellowship in Houston, Texas with Dr. Denton Cooley who was one of the best known cardiac surgeons in the world at that time. This was followed by another fellowship at the Brompton Heart Hospital and the Harley Street Clinic in London. He then returned to Mumbai and rejoined the Bombay Hospital as an Associate Consultant in cardio vascular surgery in the early 1980s. He has been working in the Bombay Hospital since then and after the retirement of Dr. Shah was made senior consultant in the same hospital. In the late 80s he did a fellowship in organ transplantation in the University Hospital, Pittsburg, USA under Dr. Starzal. Dr. Starzal was the Director of the largest transplant facility in the world at that time. Most of the great transplant surgeons of the world were trained at this institute. After returning to India he found that vascular surgery had been inadequately treated in India and many patients were losing limbs due to the lack of well trained vascular surgeons. He was the founder member of the Vascular Society of India and the President of the Society from 1997 to 1999. It has now grown to a very large society training vascular surgeons from all over the Country. He has published several papers in cardio vascular surgery which have been published in various journals all over the world. He has started the first vein clinic in Mumbai for the management and treatment of all types of venous disease. Dr. Somaya is now attached, in addition to the Bombay Hospital, Wockhardt Hospital-Mumbai Central, Bhatia Hospital, Cumballa Hill Hospital, Breach Candy Hospital, Masina Hospital and the B.D. Petit Parsee General Hospital
