Dr Umesh Shrikanta and his whole team is a team of genius doctors. Mine was the case of extrusion / herniation causing severe lower back pain and right leg function failure. I underwent "minimal invasive microdiscectomy" surgery which is performed with latest equipments and the most advanced spinal surgery. The same day of surgery they made me stand and walk 5 steps with support. The next day I was walking normally and walked for an hour :) yes you read it right I walked for an hour :-). I am thankful to the medical researchers and implementers who made it possible to have just an inch of cut at my back with no stitch and fetched out the problem causing nucleus that came out of my l4 l5 disc causing anular tear and also caused 85% nerve compression. I am a 33 years old lady having 2 kids and my younger one is 3 years old. In such a situation I got a spinal attack on 21st June 2020 morning 5:30 am. I was unable to move any body part except my hands and the pain was so severe that it made me almost unconscious. I did bed rest for 4 days washroom activities also on bed and then realised its not possible in my case with 2 kids and such severe case of herniation which does not guarantee normal life after 3 months of bed rest too and hence we decided to go for surgery. I came to know about Dr Umesh senior neurosurgeon and head of spinal surgery in Aster cmi from my jijaji Dr Himanshu a senior knee replacement surgeon in Shelvi hospital Ahmedabad. They met in national conferences. Great and intelligent minds :). Dr Umesh and his team explained me my anatomy and problem thoroughly clearing all my doubts. The physiotherapy team, team of dietician and nursing staff was a brownie point. Today is 29th June 2020. I am walking and going home with smile and confidence. It was a miracle I will always remember in my life.

Got my father operated by Dr. Umesh Srikanth for cervical compression. The doctor was very friendly and explained the issue and the suggested treatment in great detail. Though it was a high risk surgery given other complications, the surgery went off well and the doctor guided us through the post operative treatment & recovery stages. Would definitely recommend Dr. Umesh Srikantha.
