A legacy of putting patient-first always, beginning with Dr. V. G. Vaidya and later carried forward by his son, Dr. Narendra Vaidya, went on to form the core of Lokmanya Hospital whose foundation was laid in 1972 at Chinchwad in Pune district of Maharashtra.
Today, Lokmanya is a reputed and much-trusted hospital brand with in-patient hospitals in Pune, Kolhapur, and Mumbai cities and OPDs across the State in India as well as overseas patients spread in different parts of the world.
While helming this growing chain of hospitals, Dr. Narendra Vaidya, a globally acclaimed Top Joint Replacement and Orthopedic surgeon, is credited for performing many critical surgeries, developing medical innovations, as well as introducing modern medical procedures in the country. He has to his name, the first successful Robotic Assisted Unicompartmental Knee Replacement surgery in India, first Robotic Assisted Total Knee Replacement in the world outside the USA, and surgeries of all four major joints of the human body.
