Testimonials

Decompression Surgery, Spine Surgery; Dr. D. V. Rajakumar; Fortis Bangalore, India

Mr. Suryanarayanappa (72 years) would regularly go for 5 km morning walks. One day during his walk he felt sudden pain in his legs and collapsed. There was no sensation in his legs for 5 minutes. He was rushed to the nearest hospital and was given medication. Slowly the pain came back. He consulted local doctors but got no relief. His son brought him to Dr. Deshpande V Rajakumar, a Consultant Neurosurgeon at Fortis Hospitals. After initial investigation Dr. D V Rajakumar explained his spinal problem and suggested surgery. He underwent Microlumbar Decompression and was mobilized 4 hours after surgery and shifted to the ward. His post surgery recovery was fast and he was soon relieved of the post operative pain.
