Dr Pritesh Junagade heads the department of stem cell transplantation at Lotus Institute. He has performed over 300 allogeneic and autologous bone marrow (stem cell) transplant. He was trained in London at King's College hospital, Royal free hospital , St George's and Royal Marsden hospital, all premier institutes of global reputation, where bone marrow (stem cell) transplants are being done. Dr Junagade's dream of affordable bone marrow transplantation was realized in Nashik, India in August 2010 when he performed the first bone marrow transplant at half the price of what is charged in Mumbai, India or rest of the country.
