Dr Goel started his laparoscopy surgical practice at Mumbai in 1993 & within a year he was appointed as Honorary Assistant Professor of Surgery at Grant Medical College & JJ Group of Hospitals at Mumbai by the State Government.
He is the first surgeon in Mumbai to start Bariatric surgery in 2000. He was invited to start the bariatric surgery department at the largest private hospital, Bombay Hospital in 2002. Subsequently, he joined other hospitals planning to start bariatric surgeries. He is a faculty in all annual meetings of Obesity Surgery Society of India since its inception in 2002-03.
To avoid potential complications associated with bariatric procedures, in 2009, he modified his technique of sleeve gastrectomy to include over-sewing, omentopexy & in selected patients also use fibrin sealant & re-enforcement material. This helped reduce the major complication rate & offer a reassuring smooth post-op recovery.
