His training was at the prestigious NIMHANS for a period of 6 long years. He is specialised in headache management, fits (epilepsy) and other neurological illnesses. He also treats neck pain and back pain. His emphasis is on accurate diagnosis and non-surgical line of therapy in these cases (as far as possible). He is specialized in skull base surgery(pituitary tumors) where the adenoma is removed through the nose. He also operates on spine with a small incision (minimally invasive spine surgery) for slip disc and spondylolysis where the recovery period is short and the incisions are shorter. He also operates regularly on brain tumors, both in adults and children, trigeminal neuralgia with facial pain, cerebral aneurysms and brachial plexus injuries. He also is an expert in endoscopic procedures for hydrocephalus in children (ETV). He further gained knowledge in skull base and endoscopic surgery at Ghent Belgium. He is keen to know more and updates his knowledge regularly. He has been a visiting fellow at Ohio University and aurora neurosciences (USA), where he had special training in robotic neurosurgery.
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
I was suffering with pain on right side of my face for few months. Due to this, I was not able to speak and not able to eat properly. I consulted many doctors, but ended with nothing. Then, one of the Dental Doctor Mr. Majunath GS referred Dr. Anirudh Jagannadh for the pain which I am facing. At my initial appointment consultation, I met Dr Aniruddh, Doctor listened attentively, addresses and answered all my questions and concerns thoroughly. I knew I had met with the surgeon that would provide with not all only the best options for my particular situation.
He did Micro Vascular Decompression Surgery/Operation in Nov’20 and Surgery went on well. He was very helpful and took good care of me when I was at the Hospital. Now, month out, I am doing better. “I am very, very happy to be MEEEEEE! Thank you, thank you for your excellent care.I am not facing any such problems which I was facing earlier. He treated me very well from the day one. I have no words to stay many thanks to Dr. Anirudh for the treatment. Dr. Anirudh was very professional, a good listener and provided me with excellent service for my medical condition. The Care, Service and results are very good. Clinic staff is very Polite and helpful, they respond very well whenever we call them for appointments.
My experience was amazing and I highly recommend “Agastya Speciality Clinic”
I consulted Dr Anirudh for my colloid cyst surgery. He is one of the best neurologist and very co-operative. He supported our family and explained things very clearly when my family was in a state of shock. He is very supportive and friendly
I consulted Dr Anirudh upon the reference of Dr.Rajesh, an eye specialist, when I was diagnosed with pituitary adenoma in the brain. That was the time when the entire family was in shock and despair. Dr. Anirudh suggested multiple tests to confirm the type of tumour before finalising the treatment option. Test results ruled out the possibility of treatment with medicines. Surgery was the only option. Dr.Anirudh asked me to read about the surgical procedure and get back to him with questions. During the next visit he happily explained and answered all the queries that I had.
My tumour was quite big, and the preferred surgical method was endoscopic endonasal approach. This meant that the success of the surgery depended completely on the surgical skills of the neurosurgeon!! The surgery was a little risky one as the tumour was non-homogenous and had occupied the areas of the brain where nerves responsible for the movement of eye ball and the major blood vessels to the brain were also residing. Dr Anirudh lead the surgery along with Dr. Harisha and a group of neurosurgeons at Vikram hospital, Bangalore.
Surgery was successful and I regained my partially lost eye sight. I was back home after the surgery in a week’s time and was back to my normal routine in a month. I can vouch for the skills of Dr. Anirudh now. ** ** *** ** *** ****** ************* *** *** **** ** ********** He is also one of the experts in performing endoscopic brain surgeries. My experience with this case is an example for that.
We met doctor Dr. Aniruddh through one of the references from our relative, my mother initially diagnosed in Mysore and later we consulted Dr. Aniruddh for a second opinion. The way he explained the problems and possible challenges with the surgery we gauged his experience in my mother's pituitary surgery.
Always reachable, and heads-up information during surgery time helped us to handle the situation very normally. At every step, he was with us and we used to get updates, I appreciate his patience, and my mother was very happy and her self-confidence was at peak when she was taken into OT, that's the confidence Dr. Aniruddh brings in his patients.
I highly recommend Dr. Aniruddh a very knowledgeable, qualified, humble, and down to earth person to all patients.
Thank you Sir!

We are ever grateful to Dr.Anirudh who treated my 83 year old mother in law for her Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) . Doctor is so concerned and positive. He analyzed the sickness appropriately and played out the medical procedure effectively with most extreme certainty.
We discovered that Dr. Anirudh is truly reasonable and understanding. He is very clear in his methodology, which fulfills a patient’s nervousness. We have all gratefulness for him for getting my mother in law back to her health and giving her a second life.
If you are looking for a doctor whose medical knowledge is encyclopedic, and takes the time to be caring even post surgery with all the queries and support, then Dr. Anirudh is someone you should consider visiting.
