Dr Neelima Pawade

Dr. Neelima Pawade, a coveted member of our organization met an untimely death on 5th November 2006. Dr. NeelimaPawde did her MBBS & MS in Ophthalmology from GMC Nagpur. She then quenched her thirst for learning by doing her FRCS (Edinburgh) from UK in the first attempt. On coming back to India she joined Lata Mangeshkar Hospital and NKPSIMS Medical College. She was instrumental in starting the eye department there. In short time due to her talent and dedication, she developed the eye department to such heights that it was considered as a referral center for complex eye problems by colleagues. She was a gifted surgeon, an excellent academician and teacher par excellence. She is blessed with two sons are now pursuing their careers in animation and computer engineering. With generous donation from her husband Dr. Milind Pawade, a radiologist of repute, VOS has started “Late Dr. Neelima Pawade Lifetime Achievement Award” in 2008.
