He is the first Indian to start penile duplex doppler evaluation, Rigiscan monitoring and phalloarteriography for impotence. He has performed the first microsurgical varicocelectomy and the first microsurgical revascularization (bypass) operation for impotence. Many of his operative series for impotence and infertility are India's largest.

He was awarded this at the 6th World Impotence Meeting, Singapore, 1994, for having described a new penile dermal flap operation for Peyronie's disease - a disease which can cause impotence. Dr Krishnamurti is also the only Indian thrice appointed on the panel of WHO and ISSM-supported international sexual medicine and erectile dysfunction consultations.
