Dr. Niraj Yanamandra is a Senior Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist and Endoscopic /Laparoscopic surgeon in Rainbow hospitals, Hyderabad.
We had visited Dr Niraj for conducting a hysterectomy on my wife in April 2019. The surgery resulted in a massive complication, and within 72 hours of surgery, my wife had to be readmitted because of a subsidiary injury that had resulted to an adjoining organ during the course of the surgical procedure.
Despite this I recommend the doctor -he has a humane approach, he is professional and is a good man. Here are the details:
The doctor came well recommended and everyone we spoke to had praises for him. When we met him for the first time, we found him extremely warm and he spent a lot of time explaining what the problem was and what the available options were. His manner was so reassuring that my wife who had been dead set against surgical intervention (she had been putting off surgery for over 2 years) was inspired to opt for it straightaway. Just because he explained the alternatives so well and in detail. Although we had the option to get the procedure done at Military Hospital, we opted to go to Dr Niraj , firstly because of the reputation he carried and our experience during the 20 min interaction we had with him, and secondly because the laparoscopic option was not available to us in the Military Hospital.
The surgery was completed and she was discharged the next day.30 hours after discharge she started suffering severe abdominal pain. Her condition was such that we could not travel back to the same hospital where the surgery had taken place (it was 40 km away and the internal wounds were still very raw - roads being what they are, there was no way she could have traveled that distance). But we spoke to Dr Niraj and we went to a nearby branch of the same hospital. She was there from morning to evening, given painkillers and we returned.
Next morning, her situation was even worse - more pain, inability to ingest either food or water. Dr Niraj told us phone that we needed to visit a GI surgeon and suggested one at a hospital in Lakdi ka Pul. In retrospect, he probably realized what had happened, but did not tell us.
To cut short a long story - we finally got her admitted to another hospital (not the one recommended by Dr Niraj). There it was discovered that during the process of hysterectomy , the urinary bladder had been perforated. As a result, urine was filling the abdominal cavity and the entire digestive system had gone into paralysis. Not having eaten for 2 days, and already being anemic, a blood transfusion needed to be done, and then the perforation had to be set right.
A supposedly common surgical procedure requiring a 1 day hospital stay metamorphosed into a 7 day hospital stay for us. Obviously, costs also multiplied, and I was paying out of my pocket - having opted out of the Military Hospital that I was covered by.
Despite this experience, my wife and I hold no grudge against Dr Niraj. I still say he is a fantastic man, and he is professional in his dealing. He was in touch with us throughout our ordeal, even when we opted to go to a hospital other than the one he recommended when the complications set in. He was always available to us on phone and never once did I get the feeling that he avoided speaking to us after the incident - that's saying something, because I know that he is a very busy man. He even came to visit us at the 2nd hospital.
We were advised to examine legal options under the Consumer Protection Act, but opted not to do so. Surgery is a difficult art, and every outcome cannot be perfect. The complications that we experienced were sad for us, *** **** **** *** **** **** **** *** **** **** ** ** ********** ** ** * **** **** ******* We need to give space to the man practicing his profession.
I was also advised to ask him to take on the bills for the 2nd hospitalization - after all it happened because there was a mistake in the first. Besides, I was paying out of my pocket both times, as I had opted out of the treatment we were entitled to the Military Hospital We opted not to - for the same reasons, we need to give a doctor his space and accept that mistakes happen sometimes. Besides, its not in good taste.
We also learnt that this was not the first time such an incident had happened with him. I'm not sure how accurate that input is but if true, that's the only thing I feel bad about - by symptoms alone,the probable cause should have been identified on the very first day after discharge, particularly if you have past experience to draw upon.
I have held myself back from posting this experience over the past 10 months because I did not want anger and pain to cloud my judgement or influence what I wrote. So this review is a dispassionate one - even if I say so myself.
We often ask ourselves what we would do if we were to face the same situation again, and also had the benefit of hindsight. Would we go to him again? Its a difficult question to answer - but we would not blindly rule him out. We would seriously consider him. At the end of the day , he has a good reputation and despite our experience, we still carry a good opinion of him.
As a final piece of advice, remember that the best of doctors make mistakes. There could be any number of ways in which a simple procedure could go wrong, sometimes with devastating consequences. That does not necessarily make the doctor a bad one.
We had our firstborn, a baby girl, at Rainbow Birthright, Hyder Nagar on 3 Jan, 2017. The entire experience of pregnancy and delivery was an excellent one, thanks to the care of everyone at Rainbow - doctors, nurses, in-patient managers and even the housekeeping ladies. Our OB was Dr.Niraj Yanamandra. We have no words to describe how great an experience we had with him. The best thing about him is his ability to stay cool in any circumstance. Even while explaining things which might turn out to be a concern, he is extremely calm and that in itself helps us stay calm too. He does not impose any unnecessary restrictions or prescribe unnecessary medicines. He supported me throughout my pregnancy to deal with it in a very healthy way by doing whatever work I could and not treat myself as a patient. As we were keen on going for a normal delivery as much as possible, he did his best to get it done that way. However, after almost 24 hours of labour since my dilatation was extremely low, we had to get it done as a C-section. I was absolutely okay with it by then since I had seen how much he tried from his part to induce a normal delivery. Even after delivery, I still feel very comfortable going back to him with any questions I have. We recommend him strongly to any expectant mother. In addition to Dr.Niraj, another person who has made the entire journey a memorable one is Saritha Kumari Allam, the in-patient manager at Rainbow, Hyder Nagar. Her dedication to her role and her ability to make every patient feel special is beyond words. From the very first appointment till every post delivery appointment, we never had to go through any hassle, thanks to her. She is always one call away at any hour. Whenever we have our next, we don't have to think twice about where we would go. Thanks a lot
Hi all, my wife has the history of 2 prematures in 2011 & 2014 at their native place nellore, at the time we were searched for a doctor in hyderbad for better treatment and someone has suggested fernandez. we went there and we were not satisfied with their treatment and after that we heard about Dr. Niraj Krishnamurthy through one of my relatives that he is working with Rainbow. One day we met him and explained total history of ours. He has gone through the entire medical records of my wife, and he told why those premature were happend and he advised and recommended to undergone for a cervical cerclage to prevent the premature next time. He has done that operation at Rainbow, Banjarahills.
After 1 year my wife was conceived and in the 5th month doctor has noticed that she has GDM.(Diabetic during pregnancy) and he advised to see Dr. Kavitha for treatment. Dr. Kavitha has done a great job because my wife has took total 80 units per day (as advised by Dr. Kavitha) Her care about my wife was really great. So many times we had so many doubts and we called her over phone. Always she was in a position to attend our call.
My wife finally given birth to Baby Boy on 21st of Jan 2017 at Rainbow, Hydernagar Branch.
There are no words to describe about the qualities of Dr. Niraj and team. They spoke with us very friendly manner and motivate us in a positive way.
Recently I referred Dr. Niraj garu to one of my Cousins who is awaiting for pregnancy, and also I refer Dr. Niraj to anyone who are in search for a good doctor in Hyderabad.
We are verymuch thankful to Dr. Niraj Krishnamurhty to his guidance, counseling while we were in hospital.
Thank you Dr. Niraj Krishnamurthy Garu, thank you so much.

******** *** ** * ********* ******* he makes us comfortable with his suggestions and guidance. Luckily we came to know about him through Dr. Laxmi kiran madam.
My wife had weak cervics, which can not be supported by conventional stitches.
He did lap cercilage ,which many of the gynics in big hospitals are not aware.
Like apollo /fernandez etc.
This technique is highly recommended for weak cervics history patients.
With out him we may not get parenthood.
May god bless him and his family, and hope that large people will get benifited through his srvices

We reached Niraj by looking at reviews about treatment of many complicated cases. Because of first time pregnancy we want to be much serious and we selected Niraj. I am writing this because we had a baby girl recently. The best part in him is his attitude which is very positive. He will never suggest to take bedrest. At some points, reading from google and all, we used to get panic for few issues. When we raise in front of him, he used to say it's all normal. Nothing to worry. These words really made me and wife mentally strong. We totally depended on him and his words which made my wife delivered in normal fashion without epidural also. He guessed my wife will get pains by this week which happened exactly. Thanks to rainbow as well for the complete service given when we are in hospital. Hope he will do best in future endeavors
We are happy with the treatment provided by the doctor during my pregnancy and delivery.
During pregnancy, you need a doctor who can give us comfort and confidence that the doctor can help manage any pregnancy related issues. Dr. Niraj, with his expertise in managing simple and high risk pregnancies, aptly fits in that description.
During consultation, he doesn't rush through and gives adequate time to each patient.
When we met him for discussing options related to delivery, he listed out our options and guided us very well. He is willing to make that extra effort and help try for VBAC ( normal delivery post an earlier c section).
I delivered my second child on July 23, 2018. We had to opt for a LSCS as I couldn't go into labour post due date. Dr. Niraj performed my surgery and it was a seamless experience from the surgery till discharge. His post operative management helped me recover fast and come back to normalcy early.
We are very thankful to Dr. Niraj for building confidence in us and supporting us throughout pregnancy. I had my ankle injured during pregnancy and got recommended to Dr. Niraj, all round the clock it was a great experience with him and hats off to his patience over our queries, he is truly an expert and we would love to recommend him. We had our firstborn baby boy, delivered at rainbow, on 6th of Aug 2017, smooth and safe. We are happy and thankful to our doctor as well to the team of rainbow for the extreme care and support.
Thank you so much for the stand out experience Dr. Niraj garu.
My mother was diagnosed with bulky uterus having multiple fibroids and we took consultation from Dr Niraj Krishnamurthy Yanamandra . Dr. Niraj during our multiple visits assured that laparoscopic Hysterectomy is way forward and safest measure.
My mother was then opertaed for Total laparoscopic Hysterectomy + Bilateral Salpingectomy and everything turned out to be smooth. During process of surgery , I was kept updated around progress and as soon as it got over, Dr. Niraj took time, showed us Fibroma / cyst and explained subsequent process.
He addressed all our queries / scepticism (before , during and after surgery) and I thank him for all the support* **** ** ****** *** ** *** **** *
We had our baby delivered at Rainbow in the month of July and the entire experience was awesome, specially with Dr. Niraj Yanamandra. ** ** *** **** ************ ** ***** His ability for paying attention to detail is outstanding. We are very happy and satisfied. The best thing about him is his ability to stay cool in any circumstances. His decision making is very precise and he always has the situation under control. He knows his job and takes special attention to the detail. He is responsive to all the queries you may have and is always reachable which is the best thing. He takes care of his patient's personally. Even after delivery, We still feel very comfortable going back to him with any questions we have. We recommend him strongly to any expectant mother. May God Shower his choicest Blessing on him !
We were researching for a high risk pregnancy expert for my daughter as she had two miss carriages previously. We approached Dr Neeraj when she conceived third time. Though she stays in Chennai we prefered to take treatment with Dr Neeraj. So she stayed with us in Hyderabad and took treatment in Rainbow hospital Hydernagar branch. As soon as we met Dr Neeraj we were assured.. He is very kind, confident and understanding person. All our worries vanished after approaching him. Finally my daughter delivered a cute little girl on 13 th March. It was a normal delivery though there were two layers of umbilical cord around baby's neck. It was only because of Dr Neeraj my daughter and her baby are safe and happy.
Thanks a lot doctor garu
