Patient Reviews

My son (21) was suffering from frequent shoulder dislocations to the extent that it was seriously impairing his normal life. While we were convinced that surgery was the only option, we were not sure of the procedure to adopt as the shoulder damage was fairly severe and normal procedures like Bankart repair would not have worked. After consulting several specialist doctors in various top hospitals in Bangalore we chose Dr.Ayyappan because he was very thorough in his diagnosis and convincingly finalised the procedure – Laterjet Shoulder Arthroscopy. He connected very well with my son and explained the procedure in detail making the patient completely confident and at ease. Dr. Ayyappan meticulously performed the surgery as we all expected. Today my son is completely back to his normal life including some heavy weight lifting; the latter would not have been possible had we adopted any other procedure. We would remain grateful to Dr. Ayyappan for ever. Thank you Doctor.

Oh! What shall I say about Dr. IyappanNayar. Such a unique man with a heart of compassion and love. I took my Mom aged 80+ to him and He listened to her politely in spite of my mom’s slow and unclear speech. He then treated her so gently and gave proper medicines which cured her in a short span of time. Never ever I think second to go to him for my consultation. He is the first one who comes to my mind always for any problems related to Shoulder. Can’t thank enough to Manipal Hospital for having such good doctors. The reputation grows higher for such hospitals by these kind of doctors who is almost like a God at times when you go through pain. Thank you so much Doctor. _ Writing on my mom’s behalf.
