My Name is Waseem Khan. I had visited Dr Shashidhar for my dad.
My dad was not able to walk for many months, we didn't rectify the problem initially. His health was getting worse every day and finally admitted him to a local hospital. After we did MRI scan, those doctors advised that we take him to another as the nerves that carry blood to both legs were completely blocked.
One of my friend referred to visit Dr Shashidhar (vascular surgeon). We took the appointment the very next day.
Dr Shashidhar examined my dad's condition and suggested that a major bypass surgery needs to be performed. Though we were scared of what could be the consequences, but we really had to trust Dr Shashidhar as there are very few vascular surgeons here in Bangalore.
The operation was performed successfully and my dad is recovering now. Time will heal those stitches and its the time my dad quits smoking!
I would really want to thank Dr Shashidhar for paying so much attention to the needs of the patients *** ********* *** *** ***** ********** I'm glad that I visited him.
We consulted Dr Shashidhar for treatment of varicose vein for my dad for both the legs & non- healing ulcer from many years.
Doctor explained the reason for my Dads leg problem & treatment steps very clearly & in detail.
Doctor did Laser treatment for both the legs.
My dad is able to walk much better & also ulcer healed fast. He took very good care of my dad from the day we admitted till discharge & also during followup checkups.
Dr Shashidhar is very approachable & has patience to listen to our concerns.
I am very much thankful to the doctor.
I strongly suggest Dr Shashidhar KP for the patients with varicose veins.
I had been diagnosed as having varicose veins in both legs, which I had not got treated for a long time. Dr Shashidhar recommended laser ablation treatment with foam sclerotherapy. This technique is minimally invasive (no overnight stay at hospital required). About two and a half months ago I went for this surgery. The whole procedure went off very well (spinal anaesthesia meant that I was conscious the whole time) and Dr Shashidhar took very good care right from the beginning till discharge from hospital and also the follow-up visit. I was able to walk unaided a few hours after surgery and resume normal work and move about from the next day itself. Within a couple of weeks I was back to 100% normal state. Dr Shashidhar's manner inspired confidence in his abilities and I recommend him and this technique for treatment of varicose veins for those who can afford it (it costs slightly more as compared to open surgery).
I am so far happy about the experience I had regarding the doctor and his treatment. He did not rush to prescribe something and patiently explained us the root cause of the problem and also suggested minimal tests.
However, I would suggest patients not to rely on practo's appointment timing as Apollo Hospitals do not even consider that appointment. You better call them and take the appointment directly with them. Due to this reason, we were kind of harrased a little as we had to wait for 2 hours.
I am Jitendra Jain.I had consulted Dr Shashidhar for my wife Veena Jain's varicose vein problem.Doctor examined her and suggested EVLT procedure.Since we were covered under insurance I asked the Doctor to include all consumables.Doctor agreed and EVLT was done successfully.post operation because of anesthesia it took longer to gain bladder sensation but it was promptly attended by the doctor.overall experience was good and doctor also called up to enquire patient health post discharge.
I would recommend Dr Shashidhar.

I am 40yr old female. I had extensive deep vein thrombosis in my left leg. Whole leg had swollen&painful.dr. Shashidhar advised latest treatment to dissolve the clot, since I was young. He also told that if the colts are dissolved by tablets,, it may take long time to dissolve& the swollen leg may remain lifelong. So I was advised to undergo thrombolysis by placing catheter in the clots. I was kept in ICU & clot dissolving medicines was given by catheter placed in the clots. Medicines were given for 2 days. The whole swelling dissapeared & pain was redused significantly within one week. I was almost normal & I am on tablets, so that the colts will not form again. Thanks to dr. Shashidhar for advising me the latest treatment. I would recommend him for latest treatment.
Dr Shashidhar KP is very good Endovascular surgeon.. we consulted him at Bangalore hospital after my father AV fistula surgery for Dialysis failed in Bellary.The Bellary Doctor tried to do AV fistula surgery for about 4 hours but surgery failed ...He said weak artery is reason for failed surgery. We heard great things about Dr Shashidhar through few Dailysis patients. What they said about him are are very true. Dr Shashidhar completed AV fistula surgery in less than 20 minutes.. with small cut in hand and less pain. We are very thankful to DR Shashidhar KP..
I am Mr. Anand Murthy, i had an wound in my leg which was non healing from 2 years. i also has mild varicose veins. Every doctor i met suggested crepe bandage or stockings. but ulcer did not heal. Dr. Shashidhar suggested laser for my varicose veins along with 4 layer dressings. Since the procedure is very simple and without complications i accepted for the procedure. The ulcer healed in 3 weeks following the laser. Now after 2 years my leg does not have an ulcer. Thanks to Dr. Shashidhar and i recommend him for varicose veins treatment.
We visted Dr.Shashidar as my father had varicose veins from long time. He explained it in detail and suggested for Evlt lazer treatment. Operation went well with less cut and pain. My father was able to walk on the same day. I strongly recommend Dr.Shashidar for varicose veins.Me and my family are very grateful to Dr.Shashidar for his kindness towards patients.
Dr Shashidhar K P was very accommodative in performing laser for varicose vein to my uncle at a very affordable price. My uncle faced little discomfort and recovered quickly. The ulcer which was there for 6 months healed quickly two weeks following the laser operation. I would recommend him for varicose vein procedures.
