Dr. Sharad Mishra is one of the most respected plastic surgeons in India. His medical career started when he attended the Armed Forces Medical College at the University of Pune Health Science Centre in Maharashtra, where he received his first gold medal for academic excellence. Driven to further his knowledge and be recognized as one of the best in his field, he went on to train at major Delhi hospitals, such as the All India Institute of Medical Sciences and the New Delhi and Safdarjung Hospital, under internship and residency programmes, during which he performed a complicated surgery repairing exstrophy of the bladder, a rare genetic condition that affects children. He also specialized in general surgery at the equally esteemed King George Medical College in Lucknow, and received board certification from the Medical Council of India shortly after.
Eventually, he developed a special interest in plastic, aesthetic, and maxillofacial surgery, prompting him to complete a specialty training in the field from the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, a premier plastic surgery centre in Chandigarh, India. Part of his training was to research on the surgical techniques involved in treating hand injuries, cleft palates, and skin cancer, among other subjects. This honed his skills in research, leading to several of his papers published in various national and international journals of plastic surgery. His contributions to the industry have been recognized even by India’s health minister, and he was board-certified in plastic surgery in his very first year of practice.
Not long after, he gave special attention to hair transplant procedures, even undergoing a special training programme that took him to Singapore and the USA. Dr. Mishra came back to New Delhi and began a career specializing in hair transplants, at the same time teaching plastic surgery courses at the University of Delhi, Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, and the PGIMER Delhi. It was around this point that he developed a new technique for stitch-less hair transplants, which led to his textbook on hair transplant surgery, making him the first Indian author on the subject.
Provelus Hair Transplant Clinic was established in 1980, pioneering hair transplantation surgery in India. Boasting impressive success rates, the clinic attracts not just hundreds of local patients but also clients from various parts of the world such as United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Germany, United Kingdom, and the United States.
