Visited For Spinal Surgery

I had disc bulge and disc degeneration (L5-S1) for over a decade with multiple episodes of severe back pain. I had developed leg pain over the past six months that became so excruciating that I was unable to stand or walk for more than a few minutes. I am a 31-year-old working woman, and this completely disrupted my personal and professional life. While I consulted several doctors, tried medication and physiotherapy, it was all in vain, until I consulted Dr. Kartik Revanappa and realized the severity of my condition. Dr. Kartik explained that the disc was severely compressing my nerves at the L5-S1 level, and advised for a lumbar decompression surgery to relieve the pressure. He patiently explained the entire procedure to me with all details and stages of recovery. He was available to answer my queries at all hours, both before and after the surgery.
I was admitted to Apollo Hospital Bannerghatta Road, Bangalore, the day before the surgery; the staff at Apollo were polite and caring. I was able to walk within a few hours after the surgery, and it felt almost surreal to not have any leg pain after spending months in agony. Like many people, I was apprehensive about spine surgery, but having the surgery has completely changed my life for the better. I am glad to have had Dr. Kartik as my doctor; his friendly demeanor, patience, care, and vast experience in his field gave me a lot of confidence. It’s been three weeks since the surgery, and my life is almost back to normal. I cannot thank Dr. Kartik enough for everything he has done to give me my life back.
