I had history of acid-reflux and heartburn from last two years. I have gone through many treatment but nothing worked. In march 2021 I had my first endoscopy and I was diagnosed with small hiatal hernia. My doctor said symptoms can be cured by medication with lifestyle changes and surgery is immediately required. For one whole year I tried medication with lifestyle changes but the situation got worse for me. I had following symptoms:1) Acid- reflux2) Random chest pain (on both sides)3) it felt like something is stuck in my throat and I was always trying to cough it out.4) Heartburn, generally when I am hungry5) Shortness of breath.6) whenever I was eating something, I felt like vomiting.In march 2022, I went to Bangalore for the treatment and I had my second endoscopy. Now that small hernia is converted into a large hiatal hernia with fundal erosions.The doctor who did endoscopy has suggested me to go for 24 PH hour manometry before surgery. Instead I went to surgeon Gowda and told him everything. He talked for almost 10 minutes'and suggested me to go for fundoplication. He was kind enough to answer my doubts through WhatsApp, he made me sure that the symptoms will disappear and will not persist after the surgery. I will be able to Live a normal Life again So I went for surgery with him on 8th April 2022.Now after 2 months of surgery I am having following symptoms:1) unexplained left shoulder pain which is very severe sometimes even painkillers won't work. ******* ***** *** ** **** ***** *** **** ** ********** Whenever I ask him what's wrong he says it will settle down.2) sometimes I face problem in swollowing food 3) it feels like something is stucj in my throat and I am trying to cough it out.4) severe heartburn when I am hungry5) I lost around 5 kgs of wait6) shortness of breath7) my diet is cut by 50% because i feel full too early nowI would suggest to choose your surgeon carefully before going for surgery and do not avoid pH manometry. **** **** ******* ** *** *** ******** ** **** ******* *** **** ** ****** * **** ********* ****

Happy with: Doctor friendliness
The slot available is only 10 minutes. It is highly inadequate for patients who have a chronic problem, to explain their issues to doctor, and for doctor to understand the issue and write a prescription. It is particularly required for patients who don’t stay in metro cities, and hence don’t have access to good healthcare in places of stay.
I suggest Practo should give option of longer time slot (e.g. 20 minutes ), and if required, more fees can be charged for the same.
We discussed a chronic problem and an immediate problem (related to chronic) with doctor. We felt 10 minutes was very inadequate for the same. Even doctor was in a hurry and we also didn’t insist, since we knew our time slot is only 10 minutes.

My father had Laparoscopic colon/Rectal cancer surgery. He had given impartial advice to have chemo and radiotherapy prior to surgery. Waited for 6 weeks after completing radiotherapy. Even at his age he was discharged walking independently 3 days after surgery. He had counselled regarding temporary stoma and we are very happy he did not need it. It's been 3 months and PET CT has shown no recurrence.
One thing stands out is his calm approach and re assurance he gives to patients and family.
He clearly outlines whole process beforehand and educates the patients

My sister had digestion problems right from her childhood days due to a medicine reaction when she was at school. This lead into complications recently - we went to Dr Maruthesh and were super worried - but after talking to him we had so much confidence that this problem for my sister will be fixed - he recommended a surgery which was a success and my sister is back to being normal. We are so thankful with the way he handled this complication, explained everything in detail for us and helped us out of it. Thanks Doctor!
