I am Ganesan A V. I got difficulty passing urine for a while and Igot the chance to visit Dr.Shanmugasundaram, the best urologist in Chennai. From the moment I met the doctor, I were certain God had led me to the best hands.
From the day one, the expertise and the experience of the doctor increased my level of confidence.
I have undergone some Lab and other tests as per doctor's advice and concluded to go for a procedure. At one point I need to use self catheterization where doctor himself came forward to train me. During the whole procedure I experienced zero pain. Doctor's magical hands have relieved me of my pains.
Words cannot describe how grateful I am. You have a special gift as a surgeon and as a person. Thank you for taking such great care of me and giving me my life back. ** ** *** **** **** ****** * **** ****

A Doctor indeed is another phase of God who cures our health and guides us during the tough times . Dr. Shanmugasundaram is one such person . I have known him from the past 10 yrs and he is still the same simple person and most importantly a very nice human . I visited him to treat my dad ( currently 73 ) for his urine problem as he was suffering and till date he is perfectly fine under his supervision . He takes care of him so well and remembers his history and advice's him accordingly . Very down to earth . Easily reachable through phone even after consultation , pre/ post surgery .
I would definitely recommend him to everybody. We have a great respect for him and very thankful as well . God Bless !!!
Very down to earth and transparent . Being friendly . Explains the issue well and very open to educate whether the treatment is necessary or not . Wanna get things cleared out . Just visit him once and you will get an idea
I know Dr. Shanmugasundaram for more than 10 years now. He has treated two of us in our family. One was a very complicated case involving bladder removal (mother-in-law) and for me it was kidney stone removal by PCNL (21 mm stone in right kidney). He is highly professional and at the same time very patient friendly. He explains the condition of the problem to the patient and to patient’s family with all details giving them confidence. He is approachable any time and I get a prompt reply either by return call or message whenever I send him a message or try to call him. Very hardworking person. I have great respect for him and recommend him very highly.
I visited the doctor in July 2020 for Urethroplasty. The surgery was done in Aug 2020. The doctor is very humble, listens carefully and passionate about his profession. He explained all the procedures and treatment regime in simple language. Despite the huge risks of Covid-19, the entire surgery & subsequent treatment was the best. Another great thing is that the doctor is readily available on mobile to answer any query/doubts. May his tribe increase. May God bless him more.
THANKS A LOT DOCTOR.
I had known about the doctor in the past. He had treated my wife for dilation. Unfortunately during the current pandemic I wasn't able to meet him directly.
I'm also aware that in his private clinic he supports to his community in all medical situation and not merely his super-speciality.
I would certainly recommend him to everybody.
Once I was a medical journalist by profession i met many doctors in carrier but i never seen such a humanitarian like him. He never discriminate any of his patients i wonder how he explained the situation so clearly and helped me to recover from my problem so quickly...he was very calm and composed and also patient's friendly and i will never forget his service throughout my life.. I wish him a happy and successful life ahead....May god bless him with prosperity...

He is available over phone call , WhatsApp to clarify any doubts even after consultation , surgery is over . Highly appreciate and recommend Dr Shanmugasundaram.
