UP Plastic Surgeon Performs 37,000 Free Surgeries, Makes Kids Smile

Dr Subodh Singh was a studious student who while studying sold goggles and washed soaps to support his family in Varanasi in 1979. Now, he is a famous plastic surgeon who is known for performing free corrective surgeries on kids who are born with cleft lip/palate.

He has returned smiles to 25,000 families through 37,000 free cleft-palate surgeries, as per The New India Express.

Cleft palate is a common birth condition. Dr Singh is widely recognised for his service to the poor. He was a guest at the 2009 Academy Awards and the central court for the 2013 Wimbledon Men Singles Final.

Subodh lost his father in 1979.

“In every cleft child who has come to me, I have visualised that little Subodh, who lost his father when he was only 13. My father Gyan Singh and mother Giriraj Kumari (she died last year) taught me to serve the poor and live ethically. I feel God made me a plastic surgeon and not a businessman to serve a divine cause,” he said
