My mom fell and broke her hand bone. I went to Apollo clinic and met doctor shashidhar. He is so patient and friendly. Explained the procedure well and followed up untill surgery. Great doctor. Thanks for helping my mom and getting her hand back to normal.
I went to consult for my father’s knee arthritis. Dr Shashidhar explained the situation and treatment options in detail. Very happy with him. I highly recommend Dr Shashidhar for any orthopedic related issues.
Dr.shashidhar us highly recommended, he explained me what was the issue with my bone dislocation and how it will be treated. He and his team operated me with utmost care and treated me very well. A very well experienced in this field and most patient doctor who listens to your problem and patiently answers them and make sures he clears it. I came out of the consultation room happily and thinking that if shashidhar is treating it then you will be fine and nothing to worry.
Thanks for treating me so well and following up with me post surgery as well.
We have had great experience with Dr Shashidhar and I wish all the doctors work the same way as Dr Shashidhar.
My mother underwent knee replacement surgery and I must say Dr has been so supportive and caring for our family. He gives a lot of time to his patients and takes effort to explain the possibilities and outcome of each of the procedure. He makes sure that the patient and the family are happy and connects with them on a regular basis. I was not next to my mother when she underwent the surgery, but I did not have to worry because I knew my mother was taken care by the doctor and was in the best hands!
I wish all the doctors work like him and give enough time and concern to each and every patient. I am not making any offensive statement here, but I have seen most of the doctors are here to make only MONEY! but Dr Shashidhar is definitely not one of those. He makes sure that the decision that is taken is only for the benefit of the patient without any personal motive.
I can't thank him enough for all the good he has done to our family. We all owe him lot of respect and love!
We had a confirmed appointment at Apollo Clinic Electronic city bangalore. When we visited the clinic we noticed that the frontdesk folks were not organized and to my bad when we reached out to them with appointment details, they simply said the doctor is unavailable and no other orthopedic was available in clinic. Had taken my aged in law and had a bad experience and loose of our time, effort and pain the aged person had taken to reach the clinic. Not sure how they can be such care less when the appointment was confirmed a day before. Whole incident was just reassuring that the clinic was not focused on treating their patients.
I had to undergo an ACL reconstruction surgery which was done by Dr. Shashidar. Below is my experience.
Right from day one, I was explained about the problem in simple, understandable layman terms.
I was given a local anaesthesia and Doctor was communicating with me even during the surgery. This helped keep up my spirits and stay calm during the surgery.
I was given crystal clear instructions on do's and don'ts post surgery and also on physiotherapy.
Doctor was personally following up with me on my progress and was answering all the questions I had.
Overall, the surgery was successful and my leg is strong and stable today and I profusely thank Dr. Shashidhar for the same.
Post my surgery, I have referred some friends when they had orthopaedic issues and all of them have come back with the same opinion.
My relatives have also undergone knee replacement surgeries through Dr. Shashidhar and are doing great today.
Calm, professional, friendly and approachable - these are what define him!
I am truly blessed to have met Dr.Shashidhar.V. I was unable to lift my left hand and do any activity from past one year and it was associated with small joints pain and numbness. I had visited 4 orthopedicians and neurologists and I was always misguided that it was my cervical issue but he was the one to find out that I had rheumatoid arthritis and it had already affected my shoulder joint. Even the knee and hip joint were associated but with his treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, my knee and hip joint recovered. For shoulder joint he performed a successful arthoscopy, without which I would have lost my left hand mobility completely. The level of patience and time he gives for case study is commendable. His friendliness and smile makes the patient feel that there is nothing major and boosts the self confidence. I thank him from the bottom of my heart.
*** ** *** **** *********** * **** **** It was first time in my life of 44 years, I met 3-4 Orthopaedics after falling from bike. As earlier doctors were not able to diagnose it properly, I was lucky to meet Dr. Shashidhar V. He was quick enough by looking at my hand to get MRI scan done. Report indicated that there is a GT fracture. The way doctor spoke to me and explained it, it was amazing and gave me extreme confidence as I had no fracture in my life before. He is very polite, honest and down to earth. He answers every questions and easily approachable. He responds to queries finding time in his busy schedule too. It is amazing.
Thank you doctor for treating my GT fracture. Now I am back to normal with regular strengthening exercises as you suggested. Thanks a lot.
My father had a recurrent shoulder dislocation problem. He had a shoulder dislocation at around 10 PM and all the clinics were closed. When we called up the clinic the doctor waited for us and helped us. Then the doctor suggested a surgery as the dislocation had occurred multiple times. The doctor explained the details of the problem, the surgery process to me and my parents. The doctor has a lot of patience and answered all the questions. The surgery went well and my dad is recovering fast. Thanks to the able guidance of the doctor.
Dr. Shashidhar is excellent interms of providing accurate time for appointments (We never waited during our 15 visits so far).
His approach to my father's knee problem really helped us in getting rid of the problem. He replaced both my father's knees during last year. He professionally handled the surgeries to our complete satisfaction. His handling of post surgery really gave confidence to our family. Now, my father walks like 50 year old though his actual age is 86 years.
His down to earth attitude helped us in getting the lab tests done and results known very early.
Post this surgery, I recommended him for many within our family and they are also completely satisfied with his professional treatment.
A big thanks to you Shashidhar for your help in knee replacement for my father. You deserve a very big applause for your professional handling of the situation.
I very strongly recommend Dr. Shashidhar for any consultation and surgery.
