Consulted Dr. Shashidhar for my mom. She is 64yrs old and was suffering a lot with shock like pain in her left leg (radiating from hip to the side of the leg) whenever she walked or stood for long time. Dr. Shashidhar is very amiable and is indeed a specialist when it comes to spine related problems. He does a thorough diagnosis and doesn't rush to conclusions. He explained the problem in a very detailed manner and clarified each and every doubt/questions we had. He suggested for epidural injection prior to surgery which gave her relief for couple of months (we were informed that it isn't a permanent solution). Since the pain reoccured, we went for surgery -TLIF L5S1. We were given both options - Open and Minimally Invasive TLIF L5S1. We went for MI. My mom was initially scared to undergo surgery but the Doctor explained to her in layman's terms and told her it is nothing to fear about and made her feel confident, not every doctor does this. The surgery was successful and she was able to feel the difference after a couple of weeks itself. Currently which is 6 months later, my mom is able to walk and stand without the pain and is back to her normal routine.
My mother is 60 years old and had been suffering from lumbar canal stenosis for the last 6 years, but six month back her pain increased and was unbearable. This was radiating from the back to the right leg .
Very approachable and friendly doctor. Had very good experience and satisfaction with the explanation for my spine related issues
