I recommend the doctor
Our Mother, Mrs. Gita Verma is 70 years old and she had a problem with spine that worsened due to ageing during the last 1-2 years.
We consulted few orthopaedic doctors in Chennai but somehow did not get any clarity & hence the conviction on the best possible treatment.
We finally landed at SS Spine & Ortho Clinic of Dr. Shanmuga Sundaram (Dr. SS) with a reference from our family physician - Dr. Srivatsan.
We will forever be indebted to him for referring us to Dr. SS.
During the very first meeting, we were amazed at his quick grasp & diagnosis. He explained in great detail the problem and suggested all possible remedies with their respective pros & cons. Haven’t seen many Doctors / Surgeons sharing such details and that lack of info eventually leads to ‘Google Search’ by the patient / attendant and there starts more confusion.
His simplicity & patience while dealing with a senior citizen who has never been operated upon was very thoughtful & touching. At no point did we ever feel being pushed for any decision nor being rushed to wrap-up the conversation during an appointment, in spite of many patients waiting to meet him. A very common sight & practice in most of the clinics these days. These are very important humane aspects of medical treatment.
After the second meeting itself, we as a family decided to go ahead & follow his line of treatment, including the Spine surgery.
It has been 3 months since the surgery happened and the patient is recovering very well, exactly as per the Dr. SS projection. She is able to get back to her normal lifestyle & activity within 3 months of Spine surgery. Although every patient reacts & recovers differently post-surgery, we were pleasantly surprised with the detailed milestones Dr. SS had explained for the recovery period and everything went exactly as we were told.
A thorough professional, practicing with very high ethical values and transparency, Dr. Shanmuga Sundaram is a ‘complete-surgeon/doctor’ as apart from being highly qualified and experienced, he is also a very good human being with warmth & humility.
