Dr. Kishan graduated from medical school at Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER) at Madras University in India. His orthopedic residency was completed first in India at one of the premier programs there, and then at New Jersey Medical School, followed by a Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery and Scoliosis Fellowship at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, CA.

Dr. Kishan is board certified in Orthopedic Surgery in both in the US and in India, and specializes in the management of Pediatric Orthopedic conditions such as trauma, infections, tumors, limb deformities both congenital and acquired as well as spine deformities such as Scoliosis, Kyphosis and Spondylolysis/listhesis. He has set up regional centers for the management of pediatric spinal deformities most recently at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis from where he comes to us.

Dr. Kishan has received many academic honors and awards, including being nominated by medical student body for the Golden Apple Award for best teaching resident at New Jersey Medical School and nominated as one of the AOA-OREF-Zimmer Orthopaedic Resident Leaders, at the AOA Annual Meeting, 2003. He was awarded the Best Teacher Award in 2017 by his residents at Indiana University for his efforts in resident education. He has mentored several students and residents in his academic career. He has had international surgeons as well who have visited him for short fellowships.

More about Dr. Kishan…..

Dr. Kishan has published in several peer reviewed journals and presented his work at National and International meetings. His papers have been nominated for best paper awards as well. He has a strong clinical and research interest in Early Onset Scoliosis and its effects on lung development, and has pioneered non-operative techniques in its management. Guided growth for correction of deformities both of the extremities and the spine is another interest of his.

Dr. Kishan is a member of several societies, including the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America, Scoliosis Research Society, American Orthopaedic Association, and Growing Spine Study Group. He also been a Castle Connolly City and Regional Best Doctor award since 2012.
