Details :

Wing Commander Deepak Rautray (16194) Med was commissioned in the Medical Branch in Aug 1980. He is presently posted to Air Force Command Hospital, Bangalore with effect from 20 Dec 1996, as the Oncosurgeon.

In these five years, he has successfully established the Malignant Diseases Treatment Centre at this Hospital. He has raised the Centre to its present state of excellence single handedly, without the services of any medical or Radiation Oncologist, wherein it is rendering quality multimode Cancer care to hundreds of patients every year. All the cancer patients reporting to his centre are managed here itself, with commendable results and excellent clientele satisfaction. In recognition of his professional standing, he has been nominated to the executive council of the Bangalore Surgical Society and the Bangalore Oncology Group.

In Dec 2001, like a devoted soldier he responded to the needs of his country and the Armed Forces, by offering his services to the Govt of India, as a member of the Indian medical mission to Afghanistan (Mazar-e-Sharif) during the war (Op Enduring Freedom) in that country. There, as a Team leader of the only Indian presence at the strategically important Mazar, he was required to function under most trying and adverse circumstances not only at a professional level but also at a diplomatic and social level, to fulfill the aims of the Govt of India. With total disregard to the threat to his own life and limbs, he led his pioneering team with tremendously admirable professional skill, diplomatic maturity and social propriety, to do his country and the Armed Forces proud. This awesome task mandated the highest degree of dedication, devotion and professional excellence. His work has been greatly appreciated by the Governor of Balkh Provinces.

For distinguished service of high order, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Wing Commander Deepak Rautray.
