Dr. Vidhyadara helped me get back to my normal lifestyle after a Microdiscectomy surgery on my L4-L5 level. I consulted doctor after my posture had tilted by about 30 degrees and I had chronic sciatica which was constant. This limited me to even sleep in any position. Even though the doctor has recommended surgery, I was trying alternate medicine to avoid surgery which made my ailment aggravate to an extent that I had to be hospitalized at 2:00 am in the night.
I am 65 year old lady and had visited Dr. Vidyadhara S at Manipal Spine Care Center @ Manipal Hospital, Old airport road. I went there as one of my friends who comes for a walk with me used to praise this doctor for a very long time.
Super excellent amazing doctor who has very expertise in Spine he cured me in a just one injection where the most other doctors suggested me to go for a surgery.
I went to visit this Doctor for my mom's lower back pain issue. While explaining him the problem I found that he is not interested in listening to what I say and was focusing on only spine surgery. May be it is the only solution to my mom's problem but he should have enough patience to at least hear my problems. Anyway, I overlooked this and thought of going ahead with spine surgery since he was very sure that the problem will be resolved.
