Bhandari is currently visiting professor and senior bio-scientist at the (VUI) in Detroit, Michigan. He is also the Symposium coordinator of the International Robotic Urology Symposium. Beginning his academic career as a lecturer at the Sawai Manitoba Singh Medical College and Hospital in Jaipur, Bhandari would eventually rise to become the Head of the Department of Urology and Kidney Transplantation at the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS) in Lucknow, India. He was the Vice Chancellor of King George"s Medical University, Lucknow.
Here, Bhandari mentored leading robotic surgeon, Doctor Ashutosh Tewari, until Tewari"s graduation in 1991.
Bhandari"s eclectic interests include kidney transplantation, stone disease, and urethroplasty. Bhandari’s research would substantially improve the management of urethral strictures, the narrowing of the urethra, caused by either injury or infection.
Bhandari also establish the Indian Journal of Urology in 1984, an open-access and widely read source of literature. In April 2008, Bhandari completed a graduate bio-statistic course at the Faculty of Arts and Science at Harvard University alongside two of his most promising associates.
Doctor Bhandari received his Masters in Business at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor on April 30, 2010.
Upon promotion to Dean and lead administrator of the SGPGIMS in Lucknow, Bhandari began a long, productive, and colorful administrative career. Despite severe resistance from entrenched interests and the general bureaucratic nature of government of India, Bhandari played a key role in advancing India’s medical training as the country entered the 21st century. Bhandari’s interest in renal transplantation sparked an active role in creating regulations for safe donor practices while addressing gender and economic inequality in access to care.
Bhadari made his move to Detroit, Michigan to join Doctor Mani Menon and his team of robotic surgeons at the (VUI) in 2005, to aid them in advancing methods to treat prostate cancer and other urology procedures robotically.
At the VUI, Bhandari has focused on developing the clinical research program and improving the use of biostatistics in medical research. He is also actively promoting the development of robotic surgery in Indian urology.
