I was suffering from severe back pain radiating to my legs, I'm a dentist by profession and was unable to sit and do the procedures on my patients. I met Dr. Sukumar Sura, who diagnosed me with prolapsed lumbar disc and advised me to undergo endoscopic surgery. Procedure was done and immediately my pain subsided and I was able to walk pain free. Now I am able to perform all procedures now. I am deeply grateful to Dr. Sukumar Sura and I would recommend this surgery to all who are suffering from disc problems
You ask me times and times but wouldn't be able to find another answer. I run short of words to describe how good and patient friendly doctor he was as he has answered me innumerable times on a distant phone call. Detail explanation of problem(though I wasn't clear with medical terminology) and step wise approach to cure it was explained in a way which made me confident rather than to panic. An immediate backup was also planned as I stay long distant to the city where he currently is. Treatment was quite effective with no ease of pain nor side effects
V had visited Dr. Sukumar fr my uncle n my sibling's spine treatment...No words to say...frm day 1 he has been very closely monitoring them * ********** ** ***** ********* * *** ** ************also very patient at listening to both of dem wich normally doctors doesn't hv such trait. I wud prefer recommending him to any of frnds n relatives
