    Mr Munipalle did an excellent job in treating my hiatus hernia - a large part of my stomach was pulled up into my chest, causing severe heartburn and short of breath. He arranged various tests and anaesthetic opinion, and did a successful operation. Now I am totally symptom free and enjoying my life again. Many thanks
