We have expanded greatly across products and geographies in recent years, with major launches like Practo Prime, Health Plans, and Practo Care Surgeries, all spearheaded by Siddhartha. In his 12+ years at Practo, he rose through the ranks strengthening product, engineering, growth, and expansion. Together, Siddhartha, Abhinav, and I cannot be more excited to lead Practo into the next phase, where healthcare is more inclusive, integrated, and safe while living our shared values of trust, transparency, and healthcare for all.” says, Shashank ND, CEO & Co-founder, Practo

Commenting on the appointment Abhinav Lal, Co-founder, Practo said, “Siddhartha’s passion for engineering and coding helped us create breakthrough products.

With him as a fellow co-founder, we aim to chart new growth for Practo as we advance towards complete digitization of the Indian healthcare sector.”
