Dr. Siva Murugappan


Dr. Siva Murugappan is a general surgeon and husband to Dr. Prema Samy, an ear, nose and throat surgeon. Dr. Murugappan is a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada, College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the Ontario Medical Association. Frontiers: The Journey of Two Surgeons Through Stroke: is their first book. With so few stroke memoirs available, they were inspired to share their story in the hopes of helping others. Their perspectives as practicing doctors, with Dr. Murugappan’s unwavering desire to return to work, will inspire stroke survivors to transcend their own frontiers. When he is not in the hospital working, Dr. Murugappan enjoys reading and golfing. They live in Chatham, Ontario with their golden retriever.
