Wing Commander Gokul Nath (15156) Med commissioned in Oct 77, obtained his MD (Gen Med) from AFMC Pune in 1982. Recognised early for his professional competence, he was selected for further specialisation in Nephrology at a time when service hospitals were setting up Dialysis Units all over the country. On his acquiring DM degree in Nephorology from renowned CMC, Vellore, he was posted to Air Force Command Hospital Bangalore in 1984. Since then he has devoted himself to develop a Nephrology Centre of excellence at CHAFB. The Haemodialysis Unit started by him has gradually built up adequate functional capacity to treat all referrals from Service hospitals far and wide.
His increasing clientele of end stage renal diseases, his concern for suffering patients and his desire to provide a more lasting cure prompted him to take up a case for transplant centre at CHAFB. Having overcome the initial reluctance from his superiors, with single minded determination, persuasion, attention to every detail of infrastructure requirements, he succeeded in getting the license for renal transplantation in a record time in Jun 98. The number of transplants performed have since steadily increased and now CHAFB has become one of the most favoured centres for Dialysis as well as renal transplant in service.
For this singular achievement of far reaching benefit to Defence personnel and for distinguished service of high order, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Wing Commander Gokul Nath.
