Feedback and experience as provided by my father Sri Subrahmanyam Surampudi.
"I, Subrahmanyam Surampudi, aged 70 years, native of Visakhapatnam (A.P) is a patient of type II diabetes and HTN for the last 25 years. I underwent open heart surgery over 9 years ago and also having LS problem. The problem of osteoarthritis started nearly 18 years ago which has become very severe during the last 3 years. There was pain and deformity in both knees, difficultly in walking and climbing stairs. Doctors at Visakhapatnam advised TKR.
As my children are staying in Bangalore I came here for consultation and treatment. Through internet and other sources, we came to know about the orthopedic surgeon Dr. Chandrashekar P. of SAKRA World Hospital.
We called on him for the first time on 12th April 2017. After seeing my X-rays and reports and other physical examination Dr. Chandrashekar advised for TKR. He was kind enough to spare about 45 minutes for us. He explained in detail step by step surgical procedures, pain management, post-operative care, physiotherapy, cost of package etc. He cleared all my doubts with regards to my existing diseases. He created hundred percent confidence in me for undergoing surgery without any fear. On my request, he also agreed to perform surgery as per our choice of auspicious date and time.
He informed us that the surgery will be done first for one leg and after 5 days basing on the advice of cardiologist surgery will be done for the second leg, otherwise it will be done after a gap of one or two months.
The positivity, professionalism and encouraging words of Dr. Chandrashekar inspired me very much and made me to decide then and there only to handover my case to him. I have not gone for even for a second medical opinion.
I joined SARKA hospital on 11th May 2017 and the surgery was scheduled for 12th May 2017. On the morning of 12th May, the cardiologist checked up me and 2D echogram was done. Before the surgery Dr. Chandrashekar informed me that according to cardiologist my heart is in very good working condition and as such the surgery can be done for both the knees (bilateral) at a time. He explained about the advantages of a bilateral surgery. He also spoke to my family members and asked for consent. ** * **** ****** **** ************* **** ** *** **** ***** *** * ******** we agreed for bilateral surgery. Accordingly, bilateral surgery was done and I was discharged on 21st May 2017.
During my stay in hospital the personal care and affection shown by Dr. Chandrashekar is highly commendable. He is so simple and humble and while talking with my family members we felt that as if he is our own family member. The doctor patient relationship is wonderful. At the time of discharge the doctor told my son to give SMS for any problem without any hesitation and will reply soon. Accordingly, he gave immediate responses to our 2/3 SMS’s which boosted up our confidence levels. On our request, he suggested a physiotherapist who has done a wonderful job and made me fit well in advance to the scheduled target.
I express my gratitude to Dr. Chandrashekar and his team of doctors, physiotherapists, nursing staff and others.
I am a chronic patient having a couple of good doctor friends who are my spiritual colleagues. I have acquaintance with many doctors of various hospitals but I have never come across such a humble and patient caring doctor like Chandrashekar, maybe it is his nature by grace of God.
The surgery was successful, by the end of 4th week I was able to walk without assistance and also climbing stairs for which I shall be ever grateful to Dr. Chandrashekar.
I feel that the existence of eminent doctors like Chandrashekar in SAKRA, the image of SAKRA hospital will increase to a great extent.
I humbly pray my sadguru, Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi to bestow his gracious blessings on Dr. Chandrashekar and his family for a long life, health, wealth and prosperity.
