Government of India honors personalities across various fields like sports, entertainment and public service by conferring Padma Awards every year. Padma Awards (Padma Bhushan, Padma Vibhushan, and Padma Shri) are the highest civilian award of the Republic of India. In the year 2016, Dr A. G. K. Gokhale (also known as Dr Alla Gopala Krishna Gokhale), happens to become one of recipients for Padma Shri Award for his dedicated services in health care. He is the Indian Cardiac Surgeon at Apollo Hospitals, Jubilee hills who has successfully performed 16 Heart Transplant Surgeries and 3 Lung Transplant Surgeries in the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. He is known for being the first to perform a successful human-to-human heart transplant and first successful lung transplant in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India. He earlier rendered his medical services through Yashoda Hospitals and Global Hospitals. He has bagged many historic achievements such as the first Heart Transplant, and Minimal access cardiac surgeries.

With an intention to serve the human kind by providing medical aid, Dr Gokhale has formed a charitable trust called "Sahrudaya Health, Medical and Educational Trust". He is Chairman of Sahrudaya Trust, which helps the poor patients with both monetary and moral support for their health care. The trust also spread knowledge and awareness about the prevention of heart diseases.

Till may 2016, Dr Gokhale and his team has performed 180 successful Free Open Heart Surgeries at Guntur Government Hospital under Sahrudaya Trust. Sahrudaya Trust has given a great relief to the poor patients with their free open heart surgeries under the PPP (Public Private Partnership) Model with the Government of Andhra Pradesh.

Dr Gokhale says: "We are performing these free open heart surgeries only to get the corporate level of health care access to the poor patients in Guntur and also all the white ration card holders in the states of both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. It gives immense pleasure and more satisfaction for me to perform surgeries @ GGH than 15000 plus surgeries I have performed earlier at corporates."
