Dr. Hambly performed L5 microdiscectomy on me after living for years with chronic sciatic pain to the point I could hardly walk. The pain relief "was instant"! A week later my sciatic pain is virtually gone! My only regret is I didn't visit Dr. Hambly years ago. "Well done" Doctor and "thank you"!

Excellent results from 2 surgeries performed for me by Dr. Hambly: Spinal stenosis and lumbar microdiscectomy over a two year period. Each with uneventful recoveries and pain free results. Now on with my life thanks to this amazing surgeon. Katherine Marks

I love the results of my back surgery, and it is due to the excellent surgery that Dr. Ramachandran did. If you are looking for a highly qualified Surgeon to do your back surgery you will not find a better one. He easily deserves 5 stars.
