Sivasankara Pillai Radhakrishnan graduated in 1973 from Trivandrum Medical College in India.

He came to the UK in January 1976. He has worked in various District General Hospitals in the UK, and completed his MRCP at the London center.

After training for a further five years in general medicine and gastroenterology in the UK, Dr Radhakrishnan joined the Amiri Hospital in Kuwait.

Dr Radhakrishnan worked as consultant gastroenterologist and clinical lecturer at the Kuwait University until 1990. During this period, he has contributed to a number of publications in the international journals on inflammatory bowel disease and tropical aspects of gastroenterology.

Currently, he is employed as senior consultant physician in gastroenterology and senior lecturer in a major teaching hospital in Oman.

His present position gives him the opportunity to be involved in advanced endoscopic techniques, as well as patient care.

Dr Radhakrishnan is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh and the American College of Gastroenterology. He is also actively involved in the teaching and examinations of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK.

His main areas of interest continue to be the study of the local pattern of inflammatory bowel disease, treatment of chronic viral hepatitis, and tropical gastroenterology.

What made you decide to become a gastroenterologist?
I realized that gastrointestinal diseases were very common in India, and yet there were very few gastroenterologists here. However, now the equation has changed, and hence I am in the Middle East!
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
Professor Basil Nakib, MD. He is Professor of Medicine and Chief of Gastroenterology at the University of Kuwait. He is a sharp minded and searching personality, who gave me all the encouragement needed for clinical research and publishing.
Which research paper influenced you the most?
Warren JR, Marshall BJ. Unidentified curved bacilli on gastric epithelium in active chronic gastritis. Lancet 1983; 1: 1273-5.
What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
The fact that inflammatory bowel disease is common among the Middle Eastern population, and yet the diagnosis is often overlooked [Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Kuwait. Am J Gastroenterol 1984; 79: 191-4.]
What is the biggest mistake that you have made?
I don’t think that I have done yet. Perhaps I am due for one soon.
What is your unfulfilled ambition?
To set up a "state of the art" gastroenterology center in India, which everyone can afford.
What is your greatest regret?
Not being able to fly a fighter jet. Anyway, I am too short to be in the air force.
How do you relax?
By watching the Animal Planet on the TV.
What are your favorite sports?
Cricket and soccer.
What is your best place in the world?
Kerala in India, known as "God’s Own Country".
What is your favorite film?
"The Party" with Peter Sellers. Warning! Make sure you are really invited.
What car do you drive?
Toyota Camry at present, saving up for a better one.
What is your best electronic 'toy'?
My new Pentium IV desktop computer.
What book are you reading at the moment?
"India: A Million Mutinies Now", by V.S. Naipaul (1992 ed.), published by Penguin, USA.
Why did you get in involved in GastroHep.com?
I found out about it from Professor Roy Pounder. He kindly asked me to sign up.
