Written in Dr Mohan’s sagacious and affable voice, and peppered with examples of his bold and unusual ideas such as planning a diabetes expo or conducting a country-wide diabetes study, this book is a behind-the-scenes account of a person honoured internationally for delivering path-breaking care to hundreds of thousands of people with diabetes. Dr V. Mohan’s name is synonymous with diabetes and diabetology in India.
Dr Mohan established one of the largest chains of diabetes centres in the world, with over forty-eight branches spread across thirty-two cities and eight states of India and which have treated nearly 500,000 diabetes patients. A prolific writer and researcher right from his undergraduate-medical-student days, Dr Mohan has a prodigious number publications to his name, with over 1350 articles, research papers and chapters in textbooks. He is one of the few medical doctors with an h-index of 135 and over 134,000 citations-considered a stupendous achievement even for a full-time academic researcher. He also contributes extensively to charity and effortlessly combines spirituality with science.
Says Dr Devi Shetty, cardiac surgeon and founder of Narayana Health, “Dr Mohan and his passionate team were instrumental in elevating the standards of diabetes care in India. Thank you for creating a monumental document which will be a guiding force for the future generations of medical doctors”.
