After a brilliant academic career in school, Dr Vikram secured admission to Byramjee Jeejeebhoy Medical College [B J Medical College] in Ahmedabad. The college was originally founded as Ahmedabad Medical School in 1871.
After gaining his masters in orthopaedic surgery in 1989 he decided to take advanced training in joint replacement surgery. He worked and trained from 1990 to 1992 with Mr A G Hayes and Mr T U Menon at Ormskirk & Wrightington Hospital, in the United Kingdom. Later he took extensive training in Switzerland and Germany as well.
Later from 1992 to 1993 he did a fellowship with Dr Brice Brockin at Shelby Medical Centre, Birmingham, Alabama, USA. That stint with Shelby was to have a major influence on him. A few years later when he founded his first hospital, he named it Shalby Orthopaedic Hospital and Research Centre, Ahmedabad.
