11 years is a long time to experience pain in both the legs caused by a very agonizing and limiting disease – Bilateral Avascular Necrosis. It was as if by luck or fate, I met an acquaintance of mine who had undergone a successful surgery at MIOT. Subsequently, I went to MIOT and met Dr. Prithvi Mohandas in December, 2011. In spite of his obvious busy schedule, he spent a considerable amount of time to explain the various options available to me and assured that after the THR (Total Hip Replacement), I would be able to lead a normal and painless life, which at that time seemed like a dream to me.
May I also mention that the total cost of the operation/replacement was much less than what other hospitals were charging in Kerala. I was operated on my left leg in January, 2012. It has to be pointed out that the stay at MIOT was very comfortable and the staff ensured that I was given a lot of care and support. The mere presence of Dr. Prithvi Mohandas when he came for rounds was very assuring and inspired confidence. We were pleasantly surprised that, as assured in the beginning, I was discharged in a week and was confident enough to walk unaided within mere five weeks of discharge. My second leg was operated in a 7 months gap in August,2012. This time round I was much more relaxed and knew what to expect. Now, a year after the hip joint replacements, I am almost a different person physically and mentally as my legs are totally free of pain.
I and my family are extremely thankful to Dr. Prithvi Mohandas and the MIOT hospital for helping me get back to leading a normal life as Dr. Prithvi Mohandas had assured in 2011.Wishing Dr. Prithvi Mohandas and MIOT hospitals all success.
As MIOT says, they do always put their patients first!
