I was suffering from extreme lower back pain shooting down to the left leg. The pain worsened by the day and turned into numbness followed by slight loss of movement in the left foot and a tight bowel movement. We were advised to see Dr Pranav by a friend who is also a sports trainer. We had an MRI done and saw Dr.Pranav at Anaya clinic, Indore immediately. Dr.Pranav was really patient in understanding the problem and spent a good amount of time in reviewing the case history. He did a thorough examination of the foot and the reports. He clearly explained to us that the L5-S1 disc is protruding out to a large extent and is compressing the spinal nerves which is causing these symptoms. He further advised for immediate surgery(endoscopic discectomy) to decompress the nerves the very next morning. He was really patient while my wife made some calls from his cabin to inform our family on the immediate plan for surgery. We contacted Dr.Khushbu (Dr.Pranav's assistant) at CHL hospital for our admission timing and arrangements. She was very prompt and helpful. We got admitted the next day and the surgery was performed after initial diagnostic tests as per the prescribed procedure. Dr. Pranav and team conducted a successful operation and a large chunk of the protruding disc was removed. I was conscious in half and hour post operation and was able to stand the very next day. The nursing and support staff at CHL were very helpful and jovial which removed any post operative strain. During the two days post operative stay at the hospital Dr Pranav, Dr Khushbu and other doctors were constantly monitoring my condition. I was able to walk with support the day after and I was discharged the very next day. My back pain is gone and I am currently undergoing physiotherapy to have my strength back in the left foot under the guidance of Dr.Pranav. Dr.Khushbu was really prompt in answering our post operative queries even after discharge and reaching home. It would not be an exaggeration to say that Dr.Pranav is the best spine and neurosurgeon in Indore and I feel lucky to have been operated by him. I am rest assured that under his guidance i will not only recover but will immerge stronger than before. A big thanks to Dr.Pranav and his team.
