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.
** ** *** ** *** **** ** * **** **** **** 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.
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.
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.
