I’m Dr. Kalyan Bommakanti, graduated from Osmania Medical College, the premier Medical College for the state of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. I got through EAMCET with a top rank in order to enroll at Osmania which is by far the most competitive and highly reputed Medical College in the state of Telangana that strives for clinical excellence each year. I was chosen as the best outgoing student in Microbiology and was also very active at organizing events such as College day, Sports day and Youth fests which furthered my faith in a team effort. Osmania general Hospital is the largest hospital in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana that caters to the poor. I developed a keen sense of responsibility and compassion while treating the poor at Osmania.
Neurosurgery is an advanced and highly competitive field of study and offers limited seats. It is usually a 3 year course upon completion of a 3 year course of general surgery. Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences and a few others like the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and NIMHANS (National Institute of Mental Health and Neurological Sciences) offers a 5 or 6 year Neurosurgery program. NIMS has only 2 seats in the 5 year/6 year program available each year for the entire state of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
I have post graduated and super specialized at Nizam’s after being the top rank holder in the entire state in order to secure a seat.
Endoscopic Neurosurgery is a specialized branch of Neurosurgery with as few as 4-5 surgeons being trained in both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. As opposed to open surgery, endoscopic neurosurgery is minimally invasive and provides better results when applied to the correct patient. High definition imaging allows better visualization of deeper operative cavities and allows surgeons to pinpoint tumor locations. At NIMS I have developed this field. . Endoscopic neurosurgery can be applied to various brain pathologies, spine pathologies and particularly skull base pathologies. Endoscopic neurosurgery has a steep learning curve and requires a lot of dedication and many years of training.
Endoscopic anterior skull base surgeries are one of the difficult surgeries to master. They require a close cooperation and team work between a neurosurgeon and ENT surgeon ( who is specially trained at endoscopic skull base). Our team includes an ENT surgeon with special training in advanced rhinology and endoscopic skull base. Since the last three years we have been working together and have operated extensively for various skull base lesions like pituitary adenomas, clival chordomas, craniopharyngiomas, extensive skull base fungal lesions, sino-nasal carcinomas with intracranial extension, CSF rhinorrhea, cavernous sinus thrombosis. We are looking forward to further develop this
The most important skill required for Endoscopic Neurosurgery is hand-eye coordination. In order to sharpen my skills required for this, I have attended a number of cadaveric workshops and performed a number of cadaveric dissections. The workshops were mostly conducted by surgeons of International repute belonging to many different countries and these surgeons are pioneers in developing Endoscopic Neurosurgery.
With my extensive experience and also having authored quite a few articles in journals of National and International repute; when it comes to treating my patients, I strongly adhere to the great principles of love, care and compassion. I believe in taking forward all my colleagues together as a team to achieve the best results in Neurosurgery. Every patient is dealt with utmost love and compassion and with an obligation to cure, nourish and alleviate suffering.

Cadaveric Experience and Training
I stongly believe in sound anatomical knowledge and the usefullness of cadaveric dissections. Apart from various cadaveric workshops, which I have attended at various conferences, i have been regularly performing various cadaveric dissections for endoscopic endonasal and endoscopic spine procedures for the past 10 years at government medical colleges in hyderabad and Punjab. I have performed approximately 40-45 cadaveric dissections until now and 16 temporal bone dissections.
ENDOSCOPIC SPINE SURGERY EXPERIENCE
I have been introduced to endoscopic sine procedures by Dr. Satish Chandra Gore, when he has demonstrated live transforaminal approaches at Nizam’s institute of Medical sciences, in late 2014. Since then I have attended various workshops and conferences focussing on transforaminal approaches. Thrice, I have also practised the same approaches on cadavers at Osmania General hospital, Hyderabad. I have introduced the same approach at Nizams Institute of Medical Sciences and have been regularly performing the procedure since than. Until now i have approximately performed more than 500 minimally invasive and endoscopic spine surgeries.
