GKSF was established in year 2006 with a mission to be a leader and provide Premier Lithotripsy care in mobile van to the patient under pain at his doorstep in the state of Gujarat. GKSF was a brain child of Urologist Dr Ketan Shukla based at Ahmedabad [Gujarat, INDIA]

We intend to give the best of facilities and urology services which are provided in renowned hospitals today to patients living in areas where they don’t have access to the same.
