Thanks to Dr. Kaul's 2005 invention, patients benefit from same-day surgery, minimal blood loss, and low incidences of infection.
YONKERS, NY, October 13, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Richard Arjun Kaul, MD, has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
A native of London, Dr. Kaul attended the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine at the University College London from 1983 to 1988, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery. Following the receipt of a dual bachelor's degree, he served as a surgical house officer at The Lister Hospital, part of ACA Healthcare U.K., and a medical house officer in the Academic Department of Medicine at his alma mater. After completing two six-month internships, first in internal medicine and then in surgery, Dr. Kaul pursued his residency in surgery and anesthesiology in the United States at Montefiore Medical Center in New York.
Following the completion of his residency program in 1995, Dr. Kaul returned to his home country for fellowship in interventional pain management at the Bristol Royal Infirmary and worked as a general physician for six years before going into private practice, focusing on minimally invasive spine surgery. Since settling in the U.S. in 2001, he opened his own practice in 2005, New Jersey Spine and Rehabilitation. As the owner, president, and lead physician and surgeon, he consulted with patients, performed procedures, and applied his now 35 years of expertise in spine rehabilitation and background and training in general surgery, anesthesiology, and interventional pain management.
Since practicing in the field of spine surgery, Dr. Kaul's most remarkable contribution has been the invention of the revolutionary percutaneous lumbar fusion procedure—a procedure that eliminates the need for aggressive surgical interventions that are associated with a high incidence of infection, nerve damage and poor patient outcomes. Now, thanks to Dr. Kaul's 2005 invention, patients who undergo this procedure benefit from same-day surgery, minimal blood loss, and low incidences of infection, which allows them to return to their daily routines quicker. As a recognized pioneer within the field of minimally invasive spine surgery Dr. Kaul taught his technique to many other minimally invasive spine surgeons.
Along with his degrees and career experience, Dr. Kaul maintained membership in multiple minimally invasive spine surgery societies and is also the founder and president of The Spine Africa Project. Since its inception in 2008, the principal purpose of The Spine Africa Project has been to provide minimally invasive spine surgery to the peoples of Africa through the establishing of surgical centers across the African continent, and in conjunction with this part of the project is 'The Invictus Initiative', a program which seeks to help men imprisoned in American jails by showing them that in changing their perspective on their life challenges, they can change the course of their life for the better.
Dr. Kaul lives by the motto "Never give up and never lose hope", and it is this philosophy that guides his life's work. Besides his medical career, he is a public speaker, whose public speaking engagement, "Adversity into Advantage", embodies his motto.
Throughout his life, Dr. Kaul was fortunate enough to encounter those who motivated him to pursue his dreams and reach his greatest potential. Along with the inspiration he drew from the courage and steadfastness of Nelson Mandela, he gained wisdom from those like Fr. Bryan Hanrahan, his history professor and one of the priests at his high school, St. Mary's, who imbued his students with a belief in the realization of their potential for greatness. Moreover, his parents, particularly his father, instilled in him the value of education and its significance in life. Through this inspiration, Dr. Kaul was motivated to pursue his dream and education to become a physician and lead a life helping others find their purpose and realize their potential.
Dr. Kaul attributes his achievements, accomplishments, and ability to face and overcome life's obstacles to his unwavering self-belief and unrelenting determination, qualities instilled in him by his mother and father.
Guided by his faith, Dr. Kaul has always felt supported to carry on, even through life's tragedies and profound loss. Despite the immense challenges he has confronted, he chose to view adversity as an opportunity for growth and learning. Through his unwavering resilience and determination, Dr. Kaul was able to transform his struggles into gifts, pave the way for a successful and fulfilling life, and inspire others to have the same outlook in order to achieve their own success.
