Dr Binoy has been instrumental in building and shaping the hand and reconstructive microsurgery department into a very busy clinical unit with strong academic and research components. He has over 7 years of experience in the field of Hand and Microsurgery. Dr Binoy  passed MS (Ortho) from the prestigious  Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore in 2009. Kasturba Medical college, Mangalore is one of the very few medical colleges in India where hand and microsurgery is established as a subspeciality. Dr Binoy realised his interests in hand and microsurgery when he was an MS (Ortho) post graduate. His passion for hand and microsurgery were encouraged by Prof B Jagannath Kamath who is a great surgeon, academician and an excellent teacher. Dr Binoy is part of 4 international publications on the field of hand and microsurgery under the guidance of Prof B J Kamath, during his post graduate training. Soon after passing MS (Ortho), Dr Binoy joined as Assistant Professor in Orthopaedics under Prof B Jagannath Kamath. He presented a novel topic at the National conference of Indian Society for Surgery of Hand, 2009 New delhi. The topic was titled “Should neurotropin incorporated nerve sutures be considered in future?” which received much appreciation.

His passion for hand and microsurgery brought him to Ganga Hospital, Coimbatore for an extensive training on 2010. He joined for FNB (Hand and Microsurgery) which at that point of time, was the only recognised and extensive training program in India, conducted by National Board of Examinations, Newdelhi. He was one of the two candidates selected for the training by an all india level entrance examination. During his tenure as fellowship registrar, he did two podium presentation at national conference of Indian Society for Surgery of Hand in subsequent years ; 2011 and 2012. The presentation at 2012 was among the best paper category. He finished the course on 2012.

At that point, Christian Medical College, Vellore started the first Medical University recognised Post Doctoral Fellowship  in Hand and Microsurgery. Even now as on 2016, Christian Medical College, Vellore remains the only medical college in India to provide university recognised fellowship training in the field of Hand and Reconstructive microsurgery.He was one among the two students selected for the training. Successfully completion of two extensive post doctoral fellowships from premier institutions made him one of the most qualified and extensively trained Hand and Microsurgeons in India.

Dr Binoy joined as a consultant in Hand and Reconstructive Microsurgery in the Department of Orthopaedics , St James hospital, chalakudy on August 2013.  Due to the patient compassion, dedication, round the clock availability, great support from peers, team work, evidence based and ethical practise and successful outcomes of non surgical and surgical management ; hand and microsurgery  gradually evolved from a single surgeon consultant to a separate unit with two full time consultants and a dedicated hand therapy unit. Dr Binoy presently heads the unit.  He received his advanced training in wrist arthroscopy and endoscopic carpal tunnel release from Institut De La Main, Paris in 2016. He is among the very few surgeons in India and the first in Kerala to receive wrist artroscopy and endoscopic carpal tunnel release training. Dr Binoy strongly feels that one of the most important part of successful treatment is team work, willingness to discuss the treatment options with patients and follow Dr William J Mayo’s words ““The best interest of the patient is the only interest to be considered”.
