It's true that God cannot be everywhere, so he has sent his Angels as DOCTORS with Excellence and Selflessness to us.
I found this entirely true with Dr. Sai Prasad who had been our best hope in those toughest of times.
In Oct 2022 My 6-year-old daughter was detected with a Choledochal cyst and had been having unbearable pains in her abdominal area. The standard solution was Surgery however being such a small child we wanted to avoid this and visited almost all major hospitals in Bangalore, but in all prescriptions & views, we got a similar answer that it can only be cured through a surgical procedure. Finally, when the pain didn't end we tried to search for the best doctor a pediatric surgeon having experience in choledochal cyst type procedures, post many Google searches my wife suggested meeting Dr. Sai Prasad based on the positive reviews on various websites.
The Doctor is a totally down-to-earth personality whose primary purpose is to cure the disease and not to trouble the patient/family with unnecessary tests and procedures. He informed us in great detail the problem and the various kind of Surgical options available with pros & cons of each. This really helped us in understanding the procedure and also the risks involved. He also informed us of the Team which would be involved in the Surgery including Dr. Rajeev Lochan (who is the main Surgeon in the procedure) having a lot of experience in Gastro-Surgery.
However, as a pediatric Surgeon and during & post Surgery care Dr. Sai Prasad's role was most critical.
His confidence in seeing the vision of the child post surgery journey was so clear that it gave us confidence. Since over the last 2 months, we had already got the MRCP done from another Hospital he never once asked to get the tests done again through his own hospital and even suggested some blood tests pre-surgery can be done through any NABL-approved Laboratory near to your place at our convenience. Finally, we decided to get the surgery done through him from Manipal Yashwanthpur Hospital on 12th May 23. The Procedure went on from morning 7 am to Afternoon 2 pm for almost 7 Hours.
Finally, once the surgery finished the Doctors called us & explained the whole procedure went as per plan and the surgery was successful. They informed the child was doing well and is not even on a ventilator as is generally the case, infact she is already awake and is coming out of Anaesthesia effects.
Finally, then my daughter came out of the OT on the Stretcher, to our great delight, she was already able to recognise me & my wife and even spoke to us and was a bit restless, but this was completely unbelievable. They took her to the ICU and said you can be with her. This was a major surgery, I thanked the Almighty and the Doctors for their great work spending almost 7~8 hours continuously in the OT without any breakfast or lunch. You may say it's their job, but I am not sure how many times we do that in our jobs.
The most elating experience was that during our 5-day stay post-surgery there was not a single day when Dr Sai Prasad did not visit even during a Sunday he was there on time. I have not seen may doctors having that level of dedication. Also during the surgery he connected a central line system through which they gave her all the drips & medicines in a painless way without pricking her even a single time for any fluid intake or drip intake that was amazing.
Finally we got discharged on the 5th day as planned and are currently on a path of recovery and am glad to say my Daughter started her school normally as planned from 5th June and is now slowly getting back to her normal self.
We thank God and Dr. Sai Prasad and Dr. Rajeev Lochan for their great support.
Sending my gratefulness to the **** doctors I’ve ever seen, may you be proud of the work you do, the person you are, and the difference you make.
Please get in touch with me if you need any further feedback ** ** **** ************************* will be happy to speak with anyone if I can be of any help.
