Dr. Sreenivas Mukkamala replied
Dear Mr Janakiram,
I thank you for your kind and positive feedback. Thank you again for trusting me to operate on your wife's prolapsed disc, especially at such an young age, her being mom to an active junior.
Many times in a busy practice, Neurosurgeons come across as being curt and short in their replies to the point of being perceived as rude and uncommunicative. You should understand that even at such times almost all highly specialized doctors have the best interest of their patient in mind.
I was fortunate that I could spend enough time with you, your wife and your family members to allay your fears completely.
I again thank you for going in for time tested, gold standard open lumbar microdiscectomy even after being explained the availability of conventional endoscopic or totally endoscopic alternatives.
A small fraction of patients are unsatisfied with lumbar disc surgery due to unrealistic expectations of time frame of recovery and the continuing low backache due to the weak back, which caused the disc prolapse in the first place.
An honest discussion, honest expectations and honest gradual postoperative exercise regimen will go a long way in early recovery and possibly prevent recurrence of disc disease.
I am happy that your better half has made excellent recovery from disabling sciatica. I am sure that she will stick to the weight reduction advice and exercises to become healthier and stronger than she is now, to prevent worsening of the other degenerated disc.
With best wishes!
Dr Sreenivas Mukkamala
