Feedback and experience as provided by my father Sri Subrahmanyam Surampudi.
I Prema M Nair have been suffering from acute pain in my right leg for many years, progressively worsening the situation until I was incapacitated to walk straight without assistance. I have been under ayurvedic treatment for last 1 year in various ayurvedic hospitals. We (the family members) met Dr Chandrashekar in December 2019 and the doctor had recommended for surgery, but we were not ready at that time. Subsequently, we had enquired about the surgery with other patients who had undergone surgery and also on the internet and decided to have the surgery. Unfortunately, due to COVID19 pandemic, we postponed our decision. As the situation worsened further we met Dr Chandrashekar at his clinic on the first week of October for consultation. After examining my condition, he suggested going for immediate surgery. Accordingly, I got admitted at Sakra World Hospital on the 9th of October after a COVID test. MRI and X-Ray investigation revealed more problems with my right hip and doctor suggested to go ahead with hip replacement surgery rather than knee replacement surgery. We were convinced by doctors explanation and gave consent for hip replacement surgery. On 10th October 2020, the surgery was successfully done. After the surgery, I was kept in post-operative ward for a while and thereafter shifted to ICU where I was well attended by doctors and the support staff. On 11th I was shifted to the room for follow up and treatment. After the surgery, I stayed in the hospital for 7 days, where I received good care and attention.
I had an opportunity to have been treated by Dr. Chandrashekhar twice, once in 2015 and second time it was in 2018 on both occasions I was completely comfortable with my interaction with Dr. Chandrashekhar who make feel more as a family rather than treat me as a patient, that gave me a lot of confidence to go ahead and have go to surgeries done,one was my shoulder which was done through keyhole surgery and 2nd one was totally left knee replacement post-operative care and response to all the questions and doubts that I have was very excellent and I couldn't have asked for better orthopedic surgeon for my condition. I am a rheumatoid arthritis patient, the doctor took care of me very well. The doctor examined me and referred me to rheumatologist in Sakra Hospital with whom I consulted and after seeing all the reports including the MRI on both occasions because of extreme discomforts that I was having prior to the surgery, he took his decision which was very consultative course actually he allowed me to alive at the conclusion rather than the doctor himself imposing decisions with me, the precious when I went to him to show for my shoulder it was a second consultation because the previous surgeon has told for replacement whereas Dr. Chandrashekhar examined me and said to avoid shoulder replacement he said I can give a try and he managed to do that and avoided shoulder replacement that gave me confidence doctor done through diagnosis and does not resort to replacement which very patient is worried about he just does that what good for the patients.
The doctor is a busy surgeon and I had to wait for more than 2 hours to meet him. My problem was a ***** knee pain and his assistants suggested to take X-ray. ******* * ****** **** **** *********** **** Everything is super expensive and you get to spend barely 10 mins with the doctor after all that wait. I was charged 750 as consulting fee as opposed to 650 that's mentioned on practo. I was promised a maximum of 1 hour wait time. My appointment was at 11.45 am and I got to meet the doctor at 2pm. I was recommended just ice packs and an ointment. ***** *** ******* ** **** **** ** **** ****** ****** ***** ** ** ********* ** * ****** **** ******* ***** ******** * ******** I wouldn't recommend this doctor *** ***** **** ********
