About Vattikuti Foundation

Vattikuti Foundation is a US-based non-profit promoting robotic surgeries across the world, including India.


Vattikuti Foundation is working on a comprehensive strategy to grow the pool of trained Robotic Surgeons in India from the current 275 to 500 by 2020. This will be achieved through Vattikuti Scholar and Vattikuti Fellowship programs.

Vattikuti Foundation offered one-year Vattikuti Fellowships to 9 young surgeons in 2016. They embark on a journey of training as Robotic Surgeons, where they are awarded 1-year paid fellowships to work as an understudy to a Robotic Surgeon. After completing the fellowship, they are expected to become accomplished Robotic Surgeons capable of handling procedure independently.

Vattikuti Foundation also hosts a bi-annual Robotic Surgeons Council meet as part of its commitment to train highly competent surgeons and to motivate young surgeons.


The Foundation runs a medical student engagement program where identified Vattikuti Scholars (with a post-graduate degree in surgery and a super specialization) are exposed to webinars and participation in Robotic Surgeons Council meets.
