Meet the Surgeons

Two is always better than one when it comes to getting the job done, and especially when it comes to doing it really good. Dr.Sameer & Dr. Bijoy met, & hit it off as a team from day 1 of their respective practices. They both share the same vision & passion for Plastic Surgery. The one principle that guides them & which they both firmly believe in, is that, “The patient always comes first.” They have been a team for over 9 years and that is the one reason that makes CCRS one of the preferred centers for extensive Body makeovers.
