Explained nicely, good listener,exammination good clinic clean, refffeerd by
My rice first visit, undergoing further investigations for treatment thank you
The way the doctor explained the problem was easily understandable. Also the communication was very good. Was very friendly and honest in his recommendations and feedback
Doctor Sushal gave a detailed explanation of the issue and put in enough time to help me understand what I should do to get back full range of movement in my shoulder. We were satisfied with the counseling and treatment suggested.
I extend regards for the speedy recovery ,noticing relevant knee issue and explaining the issue with ease.
Prescribing relevant anti- inflammatory tablets..
I am writing this 6 weeks after my surgery (arthroscopic bankart repair) and the recovery has been progressing well and even better than my expectations!
I visited Dr. Sushal after 3 years of recurrent subluxation due to shoulder instability. He took the time to understand the history, the present condition and explained it very well. He patiently explained all the questions in detail and helped my family and me understand both the surgical procedure and the underlying condition anatomically through drawings and videos. Just after the first visit, all my apprehensions were gone and I was mentally prepared for the surgery and I believe that is very important for any procedure.
Post-surgery, he gave me confidence at each stage of the recovery and that helped just as much as the exercises :D
Overall, I felt that he is a wonderful person and I really appreciate the support he has provided till now. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sushal to anyone with a shoulder or an orthopedic injury.
Dr.Sushal sir is so friendly,kind hearted and so patience in listening to all our health issues.Though i had my MRI scan already done for my shoulder,he believed in his examination which a good Doctor's quality is.Doctor is so brilliant and confident in explaining the exact cause of my shoulder pain can be both from labral tear with capsulitis but also neurological pain with his thorough clinical examination of my shoulder.As he decided not to directly go with surgery,Treatment started with physical exercises,intraarticular steroid injection to treat capsulitis and finally i realised there was mild subluxation of my shoulder which i didnot notice till then.Finally,got operated arthroscopic bankarts repair for my left shoulder 8weeks back in Manipal hospital.His reassurance and post operative care was too good, now able to do all my work.Now,finally ruled out neurological cause of my pain.14 years of my cry,depression was finally ruled out. His suggestions made me mentally strong and motivated.
His clinic was maintained with good hygiene, staff was so friendly.* *** ****** ** *** ** *** **** ******* * **** **** **** ****** I strongly recommend him for all ortho related issues especially shoulder.Thank u so much sir.
Back in 2018 I met with a road accident where I suffered shoulder(left) dislocation leading to bankart's lesion. The injury was so severe that the shoulder dislocated repeatedly while doing day to day activities like wearing a shirt, strapping my backback etc. This is when I met Dr. Sushal and told him about my condition. With the MRI reports clearly stating the labrum tear and with a few shoulder mobility tests, Dr. Sushal advised me to undergo a surgery. Dr. Sushal helped me understand the entire procedure which somewhat helped me relax and take confident decision to proceed with the surgery. He also helped me chalk out a plan on how the recovery should happen post surgery. The day of the surgery I was much more relaxed and with the highly trained and expert team the entire procedure was done in about an hour. In less than 48 hours, I was discharged as well. With my monthly scheduled appointments, there was tremendous progress just after 2.5 weeks. Fast forwarding to 120th day and I was already driving car, doing push ups and yes returning to football.I would like to thank Dr. Sushal for helping me get around this so quickly and feeling much more confident about my shoulder.Thank you doc, *** *** *** *****

Dr. Sushal performed Keyhole surgery at my left shoulder in 2014.
I feel excellent after that.
Thanks Dr. Sushal.
I strongly recommend this doctor.
