Testimonial for Dr. R. Ramnarayan:
My mother had been suffering from leg and back pain for many years. She tried various alternate therapies and treatments (such as Neuro-therapy, Chiropractic, etc.) to no effect. During one of such kind of this alternate therapy treatment she acquired a condition where she couldn't move her right foot and couldn't feel the fingers in her right leg. The general physician and specialists that she visited earlier also did not provide timely or correct diagnosis.
Then after some research I asked my mother to consult Dr. R. Ramnarayan, a leading Neurosurgeon in Chennai. Upon consultation Dr. Ramnarayan, immediately diagnosed my mother's condition as Foot-Drop. The nerves in my mother's legs had been severely damaged due bad discs L4, L5 and S1 in her spine.
Dr. Ramnarayan diagnosed the problem accurately and advised immediate lumbar spine surgery on the affected discs. Dr. Ramnarayan was very straight forward in setting our expectations and gave very specific advice on what to expect out of surgery. I live in USA and the doctor understood my concerns for the right Healthcare to be given to my mother. He was very cooperative and flexible to answer all my questions and concerns.
The surgery itself was 6 hours in duration and very complex. Dr. Ramnarayan during the beginning of the surgery observed that my mother's spine shape and condition was poor and had been severely affected. Also the MRI scan and actual (observation) were different. With his expertise in Neurosurgery, Dr. Ramnarayan made the decision to change the surgery procedure on the table to cater to the actual condition of the spine. Dr. Ramnarayan and his team expertise and experience helped the surgery to be a success. The care in Apollo Specialty Hospital in Chennai before, during and after the surgery was very good.
My mother is now slowly recovering and rehabilitating thro Physical therapy sessions. Even though her foot-drop condition remains (which the doctor was very clear in setting the expectation) the chance of other neuro-ailments due to bad spine condition is avoided.
We are grateful to Dr. Ramnarayan and deeply thank him for the great job and exceptional care he provided in making my mother lead a better life. I recommend Dr. Ramnarayan for all patients affected by the foot-drop condition as well as other functional neuro ailments such as chronic back pain, spasticity, movement disorders (Parkinson's disease, dystonia, tremor, epilepsy etc).
