Professor Cheyyur Ramaswamy Sundararajan

Professor Cheyyur Ramaswamy Sundararajan, popularly known to his students, colleagues, his friends in and outside the speciality of plastic surgery, and many of his fraternal associates as CRS, an acronym, which he quietly accepted (considering his disapproval of medical acronyms), was the "ultimate" guru. A scion of the Cheyyur Ramaswamy family and considered the "baby" of the family (the only way he was addressed by his mother till her death) was induced by traditional family values of paternal guidance and advice. He was very keen on joining the army, having been an under officer during his intermediate days, but his father insisted on him taking up medicine. So much the better for medicine and for plastic surgery too! But after his intermediate, he went on to complete his B.Sc. at Presidency College and then returned to renew his application for entry into the medical college which he did with renewed vigour. An alumnus of Madras Medical College, he realised his leaning towards surgery even during his student days "I always felt I wanted to become as surgeon". Completing his Masters in General Surgery at Madras Medical College where he trained under Dr. U. Mohan Rao, he went on to serve the then Presidency of Madras and later the state of Madras, doing time and assistantship under late Dr. U. Mohan Rao, late Prof. Atmaram Rao and late Prof. H. Harirajan.
