Happy with: Doctor friendlinessExplanation of the health issueTreatment satisfactionValue for moneyWait time
My mother aged about 56 years has been constantly hospitalized for last 3 years for reasons unknown. She had high sugar, bp, hypertension, diabetic and overweight. After visiting 3 specialist neuro surgeon, with no result we finally met Dr Anirudh on recommendation from a different person. Doctor was able to diagnose that she was suffering from Cushing syndrome.
Cushing’s disease make it very hard for an observer to truly understand how complex the disease really is.
With Cushing’s disease, the adenoma causes the pituitary gland to release too much ACTH. ACTH stimulates production and release of cortisol, a stress hormone. Too much ACTH causes the adrenal glands to make too much cortisol, causing all of the terrible symptoms.
The doctor helped us understand why the other doctors were not able to diagnose this and he took time out to help us what is the way forward and made us patiently understand the severity and rareness of this syndrome. We decided to go ahead with the surgery which is removal of pituitary gland in Dec 2019 and after one year post surgery, my mother is back to normal, she is able to walk on her own, no bp, insulin dosage has drastically reduced, cortisol levels are normal.
All thanks to Dr Anirudh and the team of other doctors who conducted this surgery. We are extremely grateful to him. After years of pain and agony my mother is able to get a new walk of life
