Dr. Prabhat Reddy Lakireddy is not only a great doctor a great human being as well. In a time when our world is so fast paced, we needed someone who will listen to our problem and respond appropriately. My father-in-law was suffering from knee pain form long time and consulted few doctors but his pain persisted. So when he visited Hyderabad we discussed with Dr B.G Ratnam and he suggested Prabhat sir's name. After the consultation with the doctor we were satisfied and for the first time my father-in-law thought that his treatment was going in right direction. Prabhat sir will take enough time to explain you the root cause and what you have to do next. My father-in-law went through knee replacement surgery on 5th May 2019 . And he was able to walk with support after 2 days. I am very happy to say that my father-in-law now recovered fully and able to do all the activities as before. We really recommend you to consult Dr. Prabhat Reddy Lakireddy if you have any pain or discomfort in musculoskeletal system (the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles). We are sure that you will get correct consultation and remedy from him. We are really thankful to Dr.Prabhat Reddy Lakireddy and his subordinates.
I had a knee injury then I went to Dr. Prabhat Reddy Lakkireddi garu in Apollo Hospital, after checking the reports doctor suggested for surgery which is 100% success and now I am very happy that I can do all my regular activities normally.

I had been operated by Dr. Prabhat Lakkireddi on Aug 16 2018 for an Arthroscopic Bankart repair surgery on my right shoulder, which is a minimally invasive surgery to repair instability and restore function of a dislocated shoulder. I live in the United States and the injury first occurred while playing volleyball and later dislocated on several occasions while swimming, basketball, cricket etc. totaling to about 6 painful dislocations. This is common in Athletes wherein a few tend to put the shoulder back into position without pain, but for me, I am well built at 6ft/ 85kgs and when the shoulder dislocates the whole body is like locked and the only position of the body is to kneel and lay my arm on the ground. The body in an uncomfortable position and the pain is immense.
On my visit to India, I've searched the web and found Dr. Lakkireddi on Practo. He was my first choice but was hesitant to visit him because of where he practiced. (Don't ask me why). I had seen a couple of Doctors before I visited Dr Lakkireddi but finally opted purely based off the reviews on Practo and this time followed my gut and gave it a shot. I was very impressed on the first visit for the reason, he speaks to you as someone you've know for a while and him just being more than a Doctor. Most Doctors explain the issue and the treatment needed which to me is common, but its the confidence that Doctor creates in the patient who needs to get treated moreover a surgery. I've been in pain for more than 2yrs and did not want to go under the knife for the wrong reasons.
I had planned for a surgery earlier at another hospital, had my MRI reports/ blood work done but backed off due to bad experience just 1 hour before the surgery. Dr. Lakkireddi used the same reports and blood work to diagnose and I decided to go for the surgery without a second thought. It all happened in 10-15min and that's the confidence he created in me as a Doctor that you don't see anymore or rarely.
I am proud that I made my decision and thanks to Dr. Lakkireddi and his office assistant Venkat, Dr Shekar Reddy (Anesthesia) and his other team members (Sorry I don't recall the names) for helping me out. The surgery was a bit complex than expected as I might have damaged due to multiple dislocations. Its been 4 months that I had the surgery and I am recovering well. I had done a lot of research online on the Bankart Repair before the surgery and being sports person and its easy for me to do a rehab and adopt to physiotherapy. I've visited Dr Lakkireddi a couple of times after the surgery but never got a chance to interact on the Physiotherapy as I had to leave back to the U.S. I am working on my own and have a full movement but will go for muscle strengthening over the next few months and I shall see Dr. Lakkireddi on my next visit to India.
I was operated for ATFL Reconstruction(Ankle) with internal Brace in June 2018 done byDr.Prabhath sir and I am immensely happy with surgery and my recovery. I would like explain in detail about what happened and how Dr..Prabhath sir was helpful, sorry for the detailed feedback and hope this helps patients with similar problem.
Background: I was frequently twisting my ankle from last three years, I visited some orthopedic doctors in Chennai (I was staying in Chennai at that time and later moved to Hyderabad) and I didn't find them helpful and neither they understood my problem. I visited Dr.Prabhath in February when I again badly injured my ankle while playing Cricket and on my first visit Dr told me there is some problem with one of my Ligament called ATFL and suggested to take rest and after a month of taking some tablets suggested a CT Scan. In the scan it is confirmed that my ATFL ligament got tored and it requires surgery to reconstruct.I took other doctors opinion in Hyderabad and they also said the same about surgery.
Process: I got my ATFL ligament reconstructed with internal Brace in June 2018 with Dr Prabhath and it's been close to 6months and I started jogging with no pain and as of now my ankle looks stable.I would say recovery is very good with very less medication and I appreciate how all this process went through with Dr.Prabhat sir.
For the following reasons I would suggest Dr.Prabhath Lakireddy.
1. Detailed explanation of the problem. Dr.Prabhath explained me what happened to mmy ankle and what should be done and what happens if we don't go for it's repair.
2. Time he spends with patients and having lot of patience in answering our doubts and questions.
3. Before the surgery he told me the procedure name and even told me to check in Google for some details and at the same time asked me not to go for too much details which might confuse.
4. Surgery went very well and I was discharged next day with an advise of rest for 2 months and a total rest for 6 months. I was suggested Calcium supplements for 3 months and pain killers for two weeks. Very less medication or no unnecessary medications.
5. No physiotherapy suggested. He told few excersices to do everyday and it helped a lot.
6. Avoids unnecessary lab tests and he asks every time if we can afford scan or not which is very rare.
I am very happy with Dr.Prabhat Lakireddy *** ** ** *** ** *** **** ******* ** ****** A big thank you sir !!!!!
Pavan Kumar Ambati,
** ** ***** **** *** **** ****** * **** **** **** I had visited various doctors for my knee issues but inspite of me doing everything the other doctors had recommended my knee never recovered. I had heard about Prabhat sir from a colleague of mine and visited. The doc had recommended to get a couple of tests done part which he had recommended me to get a meniscus surgery done for a permanent fix. The doc never hurried and tried to give me more time, explained the crux of the issue and even sent me a few videos for me to understand and mentally prepare myself. He was extremely professional during surgery right from his patience in explaining the issue in detail both to family and me before surgery n after surgery to his care for his patients makes him stand out. While it was supposed to be a meniscus surgery once he started the scopy and realized that my ACL was damaged as well, explained the issue to my family showed photos and took their consent to fix that as well since it was the root cause of the meniscus injury n a better permanent fix. I really liked his honesty here as he could have simple gone ahead with meniscus repair as planned but his genuine intent of fixing the knee for good and suggesting whats the right thing to do for patients is appreciable. The time he gives to patients even during appointments is noteworthy. If you are looking for an ortho look no further. He has a really good support team as well Venkat who manages appointments n paperwork, Krishna one of the physio under him are very professional and good at what they do. Thanks Prabhat sir n team for a successful surgery I was able to walk with a walker the next day after surgery n without walker in a few days with a ROM support.
I visited Doctor for ACL reconstruction and meniscus surgery.
I had torn ACL and visited few Doctors for ACL reconstruction surgery. Did online research and with reference from distant friends, met Dr. Prabhat. After carefully listening to the problem and the surgical procedure, finally decided to go with Dr. Prabhat. He explained everything for all my questions (some very silly questions as well), and got confidence after meeting and talking to him. My observations are - he is very patient, friendly and care for patients.
After all the pre-tests and formalities and insurance approvals, I got my surgery done on 22nd Apr 2019. I was able to walk with the support of walker immediately the next day and discharged on the same day. Met the doctor again on 10 May 2019 for stitches removal. I went to meet Dr for consultation by walking with knee brace support from hospital entrance.
I started walking without walker and brace immediately after few days from then. For Physiotherapy I used the 3rd party services initaially. When I met next time after a month for consultation, he is not happy with the progress and suggested me to take help from the Physio who works for him and gave his improvement suggestions to Physio.
Next time when i met after 2 months, The doctor was very happy upon seeing my progress. Its almost 9 months since surgrey done and didnt face any issues.
Venkat who is support staff, was very helpful for all the appointments and scheduling my surgery. Rohit, Phsio, did my physiotherapy and helped me to recover fast!
I strongly suggest Dr. Prabhat for all ACL surgeries and consultation!
Thank you Dr!
i have visited quite a few doctors before I visited Sir.He has been a great person ,down to earth guy who believes in helping evryone**** **** *********** ****** * **** **** *******
