Part 1 – ‘Know Your Heart’ is the national calling of this Award-winning Heart Transplant Surgeon Dr AGK Gokhale. The quest to bring this expertise of heart transplant surgery from Australia to India was the singular call of this cardiac surgeon’s own heart.

Dr Gokhale is known for having performed more than 10,000 open-heart surgeries and 25 heart transplants (and still counting) in both adults and paediatrics.
