Interview with Dr. Guruva Reddy 1 of 2
For a surgeon who conducts close to 300 orthopedic surgeries in a month and over 1,600 joint replacement surgeries in year, there is hardly any real time left to explore the creative aspects of life. Habits like reading, writing, listening to music, watching movies and hanging out with buddies takes a backseat. It is quite understandable to give in to that kind of pressure. Making patients, who are destined to wheelchair walk again, is a huge task. And in such circumstances, its usually tough to stay in touch with ones creative side, dabble in writing or pursue other creative activities. Even with this tight schedule, Dr. Gurvareddy made this Interview possible. Listener will enjoy this podcast thoroughly. A few excerpt from the Interview.
“I read for at least 45 minutes before going to bed. It has been a lifelong habit. Reading helps me unwind and prepare for the rigours of the next day”
“I dont work in weekends because that ill when I pursue my other passions. I have read almost all the works of Yandamuri Veerendranath, Mullupudi Venkat Ramana and Bapu, During my formative years, I was a big fan of James Handley Chase. At Guntur Medical College, I used to contribute a lot to the college magazine”
“I share a special relationship with my patients. Thanks to my profession. I regularly get to meet writers like Bapu and Mullapudi Venkat Ramana, actors, music directors and other celebrities, I am planning to organize regular interaction sessions between them and normal patients. This will spread joy among patients admitted to the hospitals“
