HRDC - History

Home / About us /



The history of HRDC starts with the vision of Dr. Ashok Banskota. Orignally from Kathamndu, Dr. Banksota went to St. Xavier High School and left Nepal to continue his education first in India and later in the USA. He completed his Orthopedic surgery residency at Maimonides Medical Centre in Brooklyn, New York, where he held the position of Chief Resident. In addition to this, he completed combined residency training in Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery at the Albert Einstein Medical College and affiliated Hospitals in the Bronx, New York.

From this small dream has come life changing service delivery to literally thousands! Read more...
