Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Mar 28 (UNI) In a blow to the prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), four top doctors, including head of neurosurgery V S Mehta, have resigned.

Prof of medicine Anoop Misra, head of surgery S N Mehta, Dr Sandeep Vaishya, assistant professor of neurosurgery, and Dr Mehta have put in their papers to join private hospitals.

''I am joining Paras Hospital as director of neurosurgery from April 1,'' Dr V S Mehta told UNI.

He said he had put in papers on January 2 and was finishing his notice period now.

Asked why he had resigned, Dr V S Mehta said,''there are several reasons. Since I am still at AIIMS I would not like to comment on the issue now,'' he added.

While Dr Misra is joining Fortis as director of diabetes and metabolism, Dr S N Mehta will join Apollo Hospital as senior consultant and kidney specialist. Dr Vaishya will join Max Healthcare.

AIIMS sources said the better pay packets from private hospitals as well as ''dissatisfaction'' with the management was the reason.
