  • About DGCT

    Dr. Siddhartha Ghosh

    Dr Ghosh Charitable Trust (DGCT)

    DGCT was started by Dr. Siddhartha Ghosh in January 2001, after witnessing one too many cases of a poor patient being denied the opportunity for life-saving healthcare due to the lack of funds. Dr. Ghosh was driven by the belief that every human being ought to have access to medical treatment that could potentially save their lives – and socioeconomic background should NOT be a barrier to this.

    It is with this vision that the Trust undertakes a host of activities. While performing free or low-cost neurosurgery is the Trust’s main thrust, it also provides the following services for the financially weak sections of our society.

    Dr Siddhartha Ghosh

    Dr. Siddhartha Ghosh is one of India’s foremost neurosurgeons. He has performed over 20,000 successful neurosurgeries of the brain and spine with a specialty in complicated tumor removal. His dedication and passion to work is unparalleled, a fact that is attested by his 95% success rate and the devotion he has earned among the patient community.

    Two Multi-specialty Clinics in Kolkata

    Affordable but quality medical treatment is practically a myth for the common man in India. It is to bridge this gap between affordability and quality that the Trust has set up 2 fully functional clinics in Ultadanga and Muchi Bazaar in Kolkata, where patients pay a nominal fee of Rs. 30 for a range of health services, such as Gynecology, Pediatrics, Cardiology, Neurology, Opthalmology, Dentistry and Orthopaedics. An average of 20,000 patients avail these services every year.


    Apart from low-cost consultations, the Trust also offers free medication for up to 3 days after consultation. We are aided in this endeavor by several pharmaceutical organizations and individual donors. Apart from this, many neurological patients get their monthly medicine freely provided by the Trust.
