Consulted Dr. Deshpande V Rajakumar (Neurosurgeon) for Spine Surgery
I recommend the doctor
I had been experiencing chronic back pain and nerve pain in my left leg for the last 5 years. I had tried physio, acupressure, acupuncture, chiropractic work, steroid injections, dry needling, cupping etc. Nothing helped me relieve my back pain. I visited several doctors in several cities, and I couldn’t find an answer or solution to my issue. Thankfully, I got to know about Dr. Rajkumar through an acquaintance. ** ** *** **** ** ***** **** ** ************ From the first visit, he instilled so much confidence and positivity in me. He had a look at my MRI reports and suggested a lumbar spinal fusion. I had so much faith in him from the first day itself. He is so patient, considerate, empathetic towards the patient, that half your pain will disappear post an OPD consult itself. Today, I’m 5 weeks post op with ZERO back pain. The nerve pain is still there (slight) as the nerve that was compressed is still healing. I can’t rave enough about Dr. Rajkumar. He is THE BEST. Additionally, I’d like to thank his team – Dr. Murali & Dr. Karuna who were fabulous as well.
A huge thank you to FORTIS HOSPITAL, Bannerghata. The 3 days that I spent there post op - I fell in love with that hospital. During the COVID times, they have taken such good precautions from social distancing to hygiene and sanitisation practices. From the food, to the housekeeping – EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING. Tbh, I didn’t want to go back home. Thank you to my nurses in the ICU – Sister Kala, Sister Manju and Sister Anthoniammal and the others. Spine surgery can be pretty painful, but the care that Fortis gave me, it made me feel safe and cared for. From the bottom of my heart – THANK YOU team.
