Dr. Chandrashekar Murugesh Yavagal, also known as Shekar, was born to an extremely humble middle-class couple Murugesh and Lata Yavagal, in a little town called Hubballi in Karnataka, India.
He is a brilliant student and has been a Gold Medalist throughout his academic career. Dr.Shekar went to beat the famous motto that brilliant students are not doing well in REAL life. Further, in his career, he successfully established the clinic ‘LaserVEDA.’ It has been at the forefront of alleviating pain and suffering across healthcare professions, such as Dentistry, oncology, neurology, and physiotherapy.
Coming from a lower-middle-class background, he had a typical ‘Chawl’ upbringing; hence Dr. Shekar never had it easy. From taking tuitions for junior students to selling his Topper’s Notes to pay his college fees and from making dental impressions in dirty washrooms to falsifying homemade artificial dentures for terminally ill patients, he has seen it all, been a part of it all as well.
“Poverty Is Not A Handicap. But A Poor Mindset Definitely Is” – Chandrashekar Murugesh Yavagal
He first started his journey as a Laser expert way back in 2006; he had to use a rented laser unit at the rate of 350 rs per day! Those days have taught him many things, and he felt that laser technology has to become more reasonable only then an ordinary Indian dentist or doctor can use it.
Hence, this is the only way Indian patients can reap the benefits of this incredible science. That’s when the plants of a completely indigenous, Atmanirbhar ‘Made in India’ Laser unit was invented.
Therefore, the intensely passionate and efficient Shekar Yavagal went on to become the man behind India’s Laser upheaval and has now redefined the theory of Leveraging Technology for Healing in Modern Healthcare. His work not just reflects the dreams and aspirations of a regular small-town Indian dentist but exemplifies the challenges that the country’s millennial generation of healthcare providers face today.
Dr. Shekar has an intuitive feel for his patient’s distress and misery and always strives to find creative ways to end their suffering. His brainchild ‘NovoLASE’ Compact Pain therapy laser was the announcement to this fact. His stunning yet minimalist layouts have garnered a Global fan following and have survived to break the stereotype of ‘User-Unfriendly’ cable bundling laser units accessible in today’s generic market.
NovoLase is currently all set to shape healthcare’s future by evolving to be a catalyst in the paradigm shift from a pharmaceutical dominated era to a ‘Photo Ceutical’ era of Modern Healthcare in India.
As much as his battles, Shekar’s search for constantly rediscovering and imagining a nicer future for every Indian Dentist while creating a difference to the lives of thousands of sufferers is heartwarming that we all agree.
