1Dear Sir,
This mail is just to express our gratitude for the excellent job Dr.Chandrashekhar and his team did for us. I underwent a “Total Hip Replacement Surgery” on 2nd Sept. 2014 and my wife “Knee Replacement Surgery” about four months back at your Hospital. Myself – excellent. I am walking on the road without a stck – almost after three years. I walk about a 4 kms a day in two instalments. People in the street look to me in awe – as they have been used to see me with a walking stick – that too limping.
Now they come and shake my hands. I always mention Dr.Chandrashekhar’s name and Sakra and tell them what a great Hospital Sakra is. I have seen very many hospitals in India and abroad. When once somebody gets into your premises, they would certainly feel that they are in an American Hospital!! It is no doubt a fact.
Our thanks are due to Dr.Chandrashekhar and to your Hospital.Thank you very much. It’s because of the treatment we had at your hospital, we are like this.
May God Bless you all.

Regards,
G.K. Raman(husband and wife total knee and total hip replacement)
2Dear Doctor,Things were not at all easy for me…..When I dived into the condition in 1992, the year in which I was caught in the cruel hands of a severe disease known as osteoarthritis I was not in a position to do any physical work cursing myself as well as to my family, which consisted of my husband and two little children. The disease initially confined to shoulder ache and arm ache, but gradually it extended to the whole body joints creating deformity in knees, fingers etc.
At outset, I consulted senior physician and started proscribed tablets and tonics etc. for quite some years. But could not find any concrete result and the condition get deteriorated day by day, creating side effect, I tried all the systems of medicines. some relief felt for some time and again the disease took its horrible size and length. Not only that I could walk, but it was becoming impossible to even move, stand up and down from the chair as well ad bed. For each and every matter I have to depend upon somebody in my family, because I was suffering from severe arthritis/osteoartherities and osteoporosis. I was totally bed rest for 15 months starting and so in a depression condition for no lifeline of recovery left for me to come out of it.

Suddenly I came to Bangalore where my son is working. We consulted Dr.Chandrashekhar P. (A famous orthopaedic surgeon at sakra world) where doc examined me thoroughly and advice me not to be panic. Though underweight I was mentally strong sand hopeful for better and healthy life in future. Dr and his team were very motivating and positive.

Dr. Chandrashekhar P. operated/replaced both deformed knees on the same day- the golden i.e. 16th may 2014 proved to be life changing for my life luckily. After 10 day I was discharged from the hospital but under strict observation and very well treatment by Sakra Hospital. After doing physiotherapy for stipulated time, now I absolutely alright, easily doing all my routine work and can walk at a stretch for 1-2 kms. I travelled long also after the surgery without any difficulty and help. Everyone saw me before and after the surgery shocked and surprise.

So Dr Chandrashekhar P and sakra World Hospital gave me ” A new Life ” and I am very much inspired by the service rendered to me. so 1000 salute to Dr Chandrashekhar and Sakra Hopsipal for advising, guiding and motivating me.

Thanks to all

3I was suffering from knee (leg) pain for the past one and half years, cannot say in words how the pain was ? I was not able to lay down, turning in bed from side to side and not able to stand for more than 5 minutes (am not joking).
Today after the operation am able to do stand for more than hour.
We came to know about this Dr chandrashekar.P and as he promised we agreed to this operation in the month of April, today I came for check up I am able to do everything and am greatly satisfied with the great service of dr Chandrashekar.P. To me He is God. Things which were impossible to me are possible. It looks like a miracle and am extremely satisfied with Dr Chandrashekar.P for this improvement and quality of life now.

4Dear Doctor,I offer my heartfelt thanks for the treatment and care my father [ Mr Ramanaiah ] received under your careful supervision. He had a speedy recovery, the complete credit for which goes to you. I am pleased to inform you that my father is doing well. My family and I are grateful to you.The day we hospitalized my father is unforgettable as he was almost on bed where he couldn’t sit, stand and was totally unable even to lay down. We were so worried what could be his situation, but with your arrival and kind words gave more strength and confident to my father. We never expected that he has to undergo knee replacement surgery which scared us lot but you explained us in detail about the situation and the treatment process. He was 72 years old which made us to worry more about 2 knee replacement surgery at a time and on other hand side family members were suggesting that it is risky decision but you assured that all would go well which ultimately made my father today to be on his own and restart his normal life back without any hurdles.The more special about you is that you put yourself into patient shoes and measure their problem which makes you to analyse exact issue and understand the pain there are suffering. My Father had pleasant experience at your care. He was very impressed the way you had treated my father with most respect. You gave all assurance, careful monitoring and treatment that we found relief. We are truly fortunate that you were Dad’s Doctor. You gave him excellent and compassionate care and treated him with dignity and addressed each of his or our concerns.You were really nice & helpful and always you took time and made us feel comfortable. You will forever be remembered.

Respectfully,

5Good morning, I am Saraswathi shivashankar , I am pleased to brief my experience of my knee replacement at Sakra hospital Bangalore done by Dr Chandrashekar on 8th march 2014.I was operated for both my legs on the same day , many people suggested that I shoul get only one leg at a time and after few days the other but I took the advise of my doctor Chandrashekar and went for both at a time. It was painful for some time and I have trobled the doctor but he had all the patience to hear me and treat me and convince me
I am so happy to day that nobody believes that I have undergone knee replacement for both legs.
I do not know how express my thanks to the whole team of doctors and staff at Sakra hospital
It has given me anew life.
I have the greatest appreciation and regards for the wonderful experience with miracle man Dr Chandrashekar and if what I am to day it is only because of him .
I also thank my spiritual Guruji and Mathaji who also helped during that period.

6Dear Dr. Chandrasekar,

I would like to convey my thanks and deep sense of appreciation for the fantastic work that you and your team did when my mom underwent hip joint replacement, recently. I made a right decision of getting my mom all the way from Himachal Pradesh to Sakra Hospital and getting the surgery done from you. The entire ortho team including Dr. Banarji, Dr, Adarsh, Dr. Nataraj and other folks whose names I don’t know but were working behind the scenes to make our experience worth remembering, do deserve a special mention and big thanks.
I wish you and your team all the very best. Please keep on doing the good work.

Best regards,
Bhuvnesh(Total Hip Replacement)

8I have had the best experience at Sakra World Hospital. I had bilateral Total Knee Replacement 15 days ago and I must say it truly lived up to its World class name. The doctor P Chandrashekar was a magician, the nurses caring and the infrastructure excellent. Post operative physio sessions, which are very important in such surgeries was also superb. I had done extensive research, comparing hospital costs and implant costs and Sakra’s rates were reasonable. I would recommend the Hospital, and the surgeon to anyone looking for TKR.

9Dear Doctor,I have never been able to express my gratitude for the treatment I received at your hands in 2013. You had literally made me to stand on my own. I know it is too late to Thank You, but expressing our feelings while experiencing the fruitful out of all difficult times would be more joyous. I will never forget what you mean to me and what you did for me. My family and I were at a loss and was searching for the lost, I did not know how much more pain I would be able to take and who would be able to reconstruct me. All I wanted to do is feel “normal”. In fact I was in search of surgeon who can help me but unfortunately I didn’t get anyone in India and finally my family and I had planned our journey to U.S. The great twist had taken place when my father had suddenly put down due to severe knee pain.
I remember the first visit. We met as strangers in the Fortis Hospital during my Father hospitalization. You were highly recommended and I thought to myself, how a doctor with high recommendations could take on such a nightmare! I entered your office doors for my father treatment discussion but I got the way for my long awaiting treatment. For that first time in a long time, I saw HOPE and it was in your eyes. At that time I realized that I was 27 and my life wasn’t over and I can still fight again for the lost one.
Throughout 8 months of treatment, you made me see the light at the light at the end of the tunnel. I wanted to say thank you for being so patient with me and my husband during my stay in hospital, with all my questions! Post Surgery I look back and feel silly for being so nervous. I sincerely thank you for making me feel at home, when I felt uncomfortable in the hospital environment. I don’t have words to express my appreciation for your services.
I got exactly what I wanted out of this and would recommend you to anyone. There are no words to describe how grateful I am for you. You are not just an amazing surgeon, but an amazing person as well.
Finally, Thank you so much for making me look great and, feel great to start off 2015!!!

Respectfully Yours,
Lakshmikantha R.
