Mr Kalyan was genuinely interested in understanding what problems I had been experiencing and was very consultative with myself as the patient to agree what the very best course of action would be. Mr Kalyan listened well and made me feel very relaxed and confident throughout during my operation.
Mr Kalyan words can not express how much he has helped me on the road to recovery he never gives up on you.
Mr Kalyan is a very caring gentleman who only wanted the best outcome for me. He explained completely what he was hoping to do prior to the surgery and explained the risks and post-op precautions. I was not keen for surgery and Mr Kalyan left the decision completely up to me. However, I have never looked back and I am so glad I chose the surgical option and Mr Kalyan. I was painfree for the first time in 6 months the night of the surgery and have remained this way since. I had not slept for 6 months prior to the surgery and was on a lot of heavy medications. 8 weeks down the line I am back at work, doing gentle exercise, sleeping like a baby and not taking any pain killers whatsoever.
Mr Kalyan explained my problem and the proposed solution in great detail and answered all my questions satisfactorily. I would highly recommend him to anyone suffering from spinal conditions.
Very happy with my treatment , all explained perfectly
