Honour for surgeon

London, Jan. 7 (PTI): Indian-origin orthopaedic surgeon Ashok Pathak has been made a Member of the British Empire in the Queen's New Year Honours List for his outstanding contribution to medicine in Yorkshire and India.

Pathak (58), originally from Bihar, said he was delighted and humbled by the British Queen's honour for his charity work. He has worked for over 30 years in UK.

Pathak, an associate specialist for the Hull and East Yorkshire National Health Service Trust, helps run his family's Jagjiwan Tuberculosis Hospital in Bihar, which he visits twice a year with teams of health professionals to train local health workers in basic surgical techniques.
