About Us

The Department of Plastic, Hand and Reconstructive Microsurgery of Ganga Hospital, Coimbatore runs under the Chairmanship of Dr. S. Raja Sabapathy since 1991. Over this period of time the Department developed to gain international reputation for practicing the ‘High Quality – High Volume – Affordable Cost’ model of health care.

In the process, department helped to provide, accessible, affordable tertiary level healthcare to the masses. In doing so, this institution has become a model unit for most part of the developing world and resource centre for the developed world. Over the period of last 3 decades, 2054 surgeons from 69 countries have visited this department to personally see the quality of work, the techniques practiced and the logistics involved in the healthcare delivery. Numerous training fellowships and scholarships have been set up.

Dr. S. Raja Sabapathy and his team members have recognized the need to form a Trust with the idea of providing teaching and training to the interested Plastic Surgeons and Young Trainees. To fulfil this goal, they wanted to create a special Trust “Ganga Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Education and Research Trust” (GPRSER TRUST). It will be the arm through which the educational and patient centred charitable activities for the unit would be continued.

This Deed of Trust was created and executed at Coimbatore on 26.04.2018.
