Dr Kirpal Singh has been training his peers in robotic assisted surgeries in US.

Surgeons from all parts of the US are being trained by an Indian-American surgeon Kirpal Singh in robotics-assisted surgery as a part of their programme.
Kirpal Singh is a surgeon at St Vincent Indianapolis Hospital in Illinois. He has performed around 450 operations using the $2 million Da Vinci robot. 
He is the driving force and the source of motivation behind the Surgery 101 programme of the Indianapolis Hospital, which is one of about 25 epicentres of training in robotics-assisted surgery in the US.

“Dr Singh is quite the expert in this field”, said Anand Patel, a surgeon with Union Associated Physicians Clinic, Indiana.
The benefits of robotics-assisted surgery includes smaller incisions that lower the chance of wound infections and even shorter post-surgical hospital stays.

Kirpal Singh started using robot for surgeries three years ago. “The robot is a tool to do the same thing you do”, Singh said.
