Dr. Pugalanthi Pandian S M.B.B.S; D.ORTHO; MNAMS (ORTHO); MCH (NEURO);

Pandian Bio-Medical Research Centre (PBRC) is the research wing of Pandian Advanced Medical Centre Pvt Ltd (PAMC). PBRC was started in 2011 as the research lab of PAMC. The managing director of PAMC Dr. Pugalanthipandian.S is a consultant ortho-neuro surgeon.

In his own words,

As a surgeon practising orthopaedics for thirty years, I have used fluorine in treating osteoporosis patients still the Indian government banned its availability. Also I am witnessing the sufferings of chronic fluorosis patients with cervical compressive myelopathy, who come to me for laminoplasty surgery. This extreme of utility and hazard have kindled my interest in taking up this work of optimising fluorine concentration in phosphate based bioglass so that its bone anabolic property can be utilised to create an ideal bone graft substitute.
