Hi.. I have visited the doctor twice once for me and other for my sister. We both have same problem which is disc bulge. For me after thoroughly checking MRI film and reports doctor have suggested the bulge is mild and surgery not required. This can be treated with medicine and physio therapy.
I have had back pain on and off for 3 months but got worse last month .Initially I consulted Dr S. S. Kumar who suggested MRI scan which revealed a large herniated disc pinching my right leg nerve root. He diagnosed it as sciatica and asked me to take rest and put me on pain killers. Althogh I initially responded, However as the pain got worse, he gave me the surgical option called microdiscectomy. His explaination was crystal clear and he sounded very confident and positive and left the option to me to make a decision . As the pain was intolerable and I ran out of all non surgical options, I underwent surgery last week. I could walk immediately after surgery *** ** *** ****** Astra hospital didnt feel like a hospital to me, all the staff were extremely friendly, empathetic and compassionate.
I have visited This center for the treatment of joint broken in finger. After **** diagnosis Dr.Kumar advised me to undergone for surgery which went smooth and now i m completely alright now, (i was advised by few of my friends to ho with puttur mavu kattu.but they didnt give me assirance for the complete recover .so i decided to go with surgery) I am completely satisfied with the treatment and the way they treated each patient. Especially Dr. Kumar showed extreme care towards patiens recovery. Money is not their focus at any time, Pre and post surgery treatments were good. No delay in my all appointments, They didnt asked me to take unnecessary tests. I will definitely recommend Dr.Kumar for any artho problems treatments.
The quality of service rendered at this facility is exquisite. Welcoming front office staff and special note of thanks to the physiotherapist at this facility who helped me greatly to get over the pain with quality care. And about doctor S.S Kumar, he is a fantastic professional who listens to the patients problems and provides effective remedies. He helped me get over nagging disc problems and has always been my go to doctor for any spinal ailments. I would defenitely recommend this hospital to my friends & family.
