J. Gross (Germany) and Doctor David Albala (USA), as well as by renowned Indian Urologists such as Doctor S.K. Sharma (Ex-Director, PGI Chandigarh), Doctor N. P.

In the year 2006, he demonstrated (Video Presentation) his Experience on Flexible Ureterorenoscopy in the 39th Annual Conference of the Urological Society of India held at Institute of Medical Sciences, BHU, Varanasi on Invitation.

National dailies in the country have been chronicling his professional prodigies for more than a decade now. Some of his more memorable accomplishments include the extraction of cotton like ball of fungus from the kidney of a 42-year-old woman by Ureteroscopy without open surgery in the year 2000. This technique, which had hitherto been employed very rarely anywhere in the world, was adopted by him probably for the first time in the world.
Dr Pawan Kumar Gupta has worked his way up to his present international standing in the highly complex field of Urology through an optimum mix of determination and diligence, fostering his natural genius. He attained his Masters in Surgery (MS) from Christian Medical College, Ludhiana, and thereafter, his Diploma in Urology from the Institute of Urology, London.
Having started his career as a lecturer in Surgery in a Urological Unit at the Christian Medical College, Ludhiana, Dr, Gupta has come a long way indeed. After his professional stint, which lasted till 1987, he turned to private practice in order to give scope to his talent and flair in his chosen field. Since then, he has been establishing milestone upon milestone of professional success and path-breaking achievements, thus successfully putting Haryana on the World map in the field of Urology. His efforts towards making Urological Procedures and Surgeries more and more risk-free as well as financially accessible to the masses are legends, as are his amazing feats in the operation theatre.
At present a leading authority in Flexible Ureteroscopy for removal of Kidney stones in India, Dr Pawan Kumar Gupta remains as firmly committed as ever to the cause of spreading awareness about Kidney Stone disease, their causes and preventions, as well as their safe and minimum-cost treatment for the common man.
