IN PRAISE OF DR. BALASUBRAMANIAN (COIMBATORE, INDIA)
In January, I had my left hip resurfaced by Dr. Bose in Chennai. Although both hips were almost equally bad (bone on bone), Dr. Bose was very reluctant to operate on both, so I had the left hip operated on, returned home to Chicago and hoped for the best.
Unfortunately, my right hip began getting worse, and after about 5 weeks, it became apparent that I’d have to have it resurfaced too. I was extremely depressed for a couple of days, and then I decided to stop crying about it and just get it done as soon as possible. I read Gregg Dean’s e-mail on the surfacehippy website about a Dr. Balasubramanian who charged only $5000. Dr. Bose is great, one of the best, and I highly recommend him – but at this point, I was already in so much debt, I decided to go to Dr. Balasubramanian.
I flew back to India in mid-April. Dr. Bala was wonderful! He came by every day and answered questions and just sat and chatted with me. He’s very warm and friendly. The nurses were all wonderful as well. The operation was successful and my recovery pretty normal.
Initially, I couldn’t do leg lifts with my right leg, and it seemed longer than my left, but after 8 weeks, I was able to do leg lifts and somewhere along the line, my legs evened out. Now I can run up the stairs, walk normally, and dance, and I’m free of that constant horrible pain.
Thank you, Dr. Bala! For anyone who wants more information, you can go to his website at www.hipresurfacingcenter.com Patti Adachi, Chicago IL LBHR Dr. Bose 1/06 RBHR Dr. Bala 4/06
