SurgeryPlanet was founded by Capt. Augustine Joseph ATPL. CHPL. MBA, an ex- Air Force Pilot , US commercial pilot, Founder and CEO of an aviation company in the US. He has successfully developed and managed several businesses in the Health Care Industry, Technology and Aviation Industry in the US and Asia. He is also an avid philanthropist and founded the Non-Profit Organization "Angel of Hope Foundation" to provide care and education for thousands of Children in under developed nations.

Augustine, often known as Captain or Gus among his friends and peers, has a Masters Degree in Aviation Science and a Double Masters Degree in Business Administration. He has lived and worked in Asia, Europe, South America, Pacific Islands and in US. In November 2000, after being injured in a helicopter crash in Hawaii, caused by a complete engine failure, Capt. Augustine was wheel chair bound with spine, neck and head injuries and subjected to perils of the failing health care system in US for 2 years. Augustine then researched the best and cost effective medical care that was available in hospitals overseas and traveled to India to seek medical care, becoming a medical tourist himself.

The excellent treatments, medical choices and results that he experienced from these international hospitals, motivated him to create a socially responsible and ethical organization, with a vision to bring excellent, high quality, affordable medical choices, to all globally. His vast experience living in several continents and knowledge of the medical system and cultures is brought to effective use, to the company's and its clients advantage. Augustine is often seen in his office at midnight and early morning hours, talking to customers or hospitals overseas in different time zones, to ensure that all the customers are given the best care. During his leisure time, he is seen at his children's Football tournaments, Karate or Music Classes. On the weekends you can find him at the local airport flying or checking his Airplanes or at the local Golf course. He also mentors MBA students and other business owners in the community.
