I am a patient who had a prostrate cancer identified through a MRI scan & biopsy test in a leading hospital in Colombo Sri Lanka, was lucky enough to consult Dr. K. Ramesh at Appolo Hospital.
When my daughter was diagnosed of ureterocele and she needed a surgery, I was confused. Then I came in contact with you. You took your time to explain the procedure to me, you answered all my questions and cleared my doubts.
My daughter stayed in ICCU for 2 days, and went to normal ward for 3 days more. Total care only about 5 days, and all running well, and until today she doesn’t need to use drugs or steroids at all.
