Dr.S.Ayyappan has always had a passion for sports as well as medicine. He became the sports secretary and later was elected the general secretary of Madras Medical College. Dr.S.Ayyappan soon settled down to practicing Surgical Oncology as the requirement in that field was enormous. He completed his specialist surgical degree from the reputed Adyar Cancer Institute in 1996. He has rendered service to the Institute for more than a decade. In 2007 he started MADRAS CANCER CARE FOUNDATION to deliver comprehensive quality care to cancer afflicted. His devotion and commitment to his profession earned him the best doctoral award in the field of cancer from TN Medical university in 2013. He also heads the Chennai Chapter of Oncologists and the DNB Surgical oncology education program at APOLLO HOSPITALS. He is a visiting and honorary consultant in many leading institutes of Chennai and Trivandrum. He is regularly seen as faculty representing Chennai or India in most national and international cancer conferences.
I had not known any Oncologist by name in Chennai until April 2020, when a chance ultrasound revealed a mass or growth and further tests suggested presence of malignancy. I was referred to Dr S Ayyappan at Apollo Speciality Hospital. After due investigation and diagnosis, Dr Ayyappan performed laparotomy - surgery to remove the malignant tumour and fixed the pre-existing hernia.
Throughout, I had the best experience of medical treatment for the following reasons:
Dr Ayyappan has expertise and experience which is evident and made us feel comfortable even in the first meeting that I am in good hands.
Doctor establishes rapport very quickly, communicates at every step meticulously, encourages the patient to speak, raise questions etc. He is very caring and that sets the tone for a happy journey.
The surgery and post surgery experience was as patient friendly as it can be.
I recovered very well after the surgery and feel healthy and peaceful. Its certainly thanks to his expertise in the procedure. I had to undergo a few cycles of chemotherapy which again was done with utmost care and medication to soften the side effects.
Whenever I think of it, I wish that everybody in similar health situation in our country should get access to such a doctor and treatment.
** ** *** ** *** **** ** * **** **** **** I still remember the day i first met him for my mom's issue. We were very worried and felt almost towards the end of the world before we met him. The moment we saw him, his words in the first consultation gave us life.
My mom who is actually not very bold and worried about her issue was confident and relaxed after meeting him. He is very caring towards his patients , very professional *** ******** He is very frank and also explains well about the issue and treatment and at the same time gives 100% confidence , love and care to his patients. And i can swear he is the best in his field.
I also admire the way he occupies his patient in two rooms and run between rooms to consult them and cut down those few minutes also and spend it with his patients. I couldn't imagine that any other Dr would do this. He is one the person i would thank throughout my life time. He also has very good memory and care so that he address patient's attender and always asks me to reduce my weight if i put on my weight in next visit. I feel proud that i have recommend him to my relatives and friends and one of them who had severe problem got treated by him and they thank me for recommending Sir. I wish him 100 years for the service he is doing for his patients. Thank you sir and you have a special place in our heart. Long live!!!
I was diagnosed with plantar fibromatosis in the left foot in 2011. I had a surgery done at a local hospital near my home. I was assured that this disease would not recur, but to our shock, it recurred next year. I had then consulted with some doctors with some reputed hospitals, who told me that I had to get some of my toes removed. At that time, I did not have the courage to take up the surgery, and tried some alternative medicines, but they were all in vain. The tumour kept growing.
Finally, I came across Dr. Ayappan from MCCF. It was just a matter of luck that I met him at Kumaran Hospitals. He explained me , the nature of the disease and what had to be done to get rid of it. Initially we were devastated and very scared about if I could lead an active life after the surgery, but thanks to the doctor, he convinced us that if I delayed the surgery, it would be a big risk as the tumour could turn malignant.
Finally with the support and guidance given by the doctor and my family, I took up the treatment and surgery. Initially , it took some time for me to get adapted to my new life, but I was able to cope up very fast and in a matter of 3 months I was back to my office , though on crutches. In 5 months of time I was able to walk on my own without any crutches or help from anybody.
It is 5 years now , since the surgery. I now visit him yearly for my check up. I have to fully agree that Dr. Ayappan had taken the best decision for me at that time.
I have been to Germany thrice for my work. I even stayed there alone for ~1.5 years, which I never thought was possible because of the disease. Thanks to the doctor, he not only helped me through my surgery, but also helped me through the rehabilitation process, as a result of which I was able to return back to an active life as earlier than what I had during the disease.
My entire family was afraid of the issues that my mom had. When we visited him , he terribly made us to relax from the pressure we had and handled it professionally and personally. He is too polite and really treated us like a family mate who is having issues and definitely not like a patient at all.
One thing i just want to say , if any one having issues related to treat with oncologist , ** ** *** ***** * ******* * ***** * ******* * *** **** * ******* ****** * ****** ** *** ********
He first cure us with his caring nature and later part by his experience.
No words to express about his approach. Once you visit this great Dr. Ayyappan you will feel the same.
Don't ever worry people , only good things will happen for us.
DEAR all i must thank god for giving me such an opportunity to write about such godly sent man. Education and knowledge makes a complete man But for DR Ayyappan his gentle polite softness have cured many patients with out surgery He never looks for status age or money
AS you u enter his cabin he gives moon light smile and gives a magical touch
For every one he tells the surgery will be very simple and it is like cake walk
my life is enlightened because of DR Ayyappan and Dr RamananNow the word oncology which was threatening me is simplified and got a clear picture it is very easy to treat if you meet medical oncologists and surgical oncologists like DR Ayyappan and DR RAmanan
i wish and pray to Dhanvatri the GOD of medicine to be with them and bless their career
Long Live your family members
My first contact with Dr. Ayyappan was when he performed my mastectomy in 2011. At that time itself, he was patient enough to explain the details without getting irritated with our silly questions. After that I have been meeting him yearly for followup and his attitude towards me has not changed one bit. He is still the cheerful old doctor that I first encountered. May his tribe grow.
He is not just a good doctor but a great doctor. He cured my oesophagus cancer completely. He is a very patient listener and explains the treatment very well. He gave a new life for me. I 100% recommend him.
Dr.Ayyappan is very friendly and approachable. He explains things in simple terms and does not hesitate to repeat and make patient feel comfortable. ** ** **** ************ ** *** ******** I will strongly recommend to consult Dr. Ayyappan.
He is a man who is came from God. Well experienced. Very much satisfied after consultation.
I will refer him to all I know
