Painless Hemorrhoid Surgery!
I've had horrible hemorrhoids for over 20 years. Every time I have a bowel movement, I have a flare up, so I'm in constant pain. I was so scared of getting hemorrhoid surgery since I read so many horror stories about it, but the pain was so bad, I started to research a more painless solution to the old school way of just cutting them out. I found a technique called HAL-RAR, and Dr. Achanta was the only surgeon in the area that performed it. However, after meeting with Dr. Achanta, we decided to do the Staple Hemorrhoid surgery. He knew I had a very low tolerance for pain, and took care of my anxiety both pre and post op. The healing time was painless! It was actually less painful that my daily hemorrhoid flare ups. It's been 3 weeks since my surgery and up doing everything I was before, and have had no flare ups! Highly recommend Dr. Achanta!

Dr. Achanta is the absolute best. He is a phenomenal surgeon and human! He and his PA are warm and caring. They are smart, thorough and dedicated to helping you. Dr. Achanta was there for me day and night no matter what during my surgeries and still to this day, he provides continued support. I truly feel like he was meant to be a doctor in this life to help ease people’s fears and show them there is faith to be had in our medical practices and restore faith in good will and good people. I trust Dr. Achanta with my life and after poor experiences with others - I urge you to choose Achanta and he won’t let you down. He will do whatever is physically possible to do to resolve your ailment. He doesn’t give up. I am grateful for him and his team forever!

Dr. Achanta offers LINX ®, a new laparoscopic procedure to treat GERD. This procedure involves a string of metal beads that are drawn together by a magnet. When this string is placed around the lower esophagus, the magnet pulls the beads together and closes off the esophagus from the stomach.

Dr. Achanta was a God sent for my 86 year old mother-in-law. She had to have her gallbladder removed and Dr. Achanta was very courteous and personally came and explained the procedure to her and assured her that he and his team will take good care of her. He came and visited her two more times after her surgery to make sure she is ok. God’s blessings on him for his kindness. Excellent communicator. ~Mercy Kodur

I met Dr. Achanta in 1994 at Baystate Medical in Springfield MA.. My daughter, a medical school student, had been hit by a car when she was crossing the street on December 23. Dr Achanta made himself available to me at all hours and guided and supported me through the worst period our lives (mine and my husband). He was my Angel and Wiseman. I still think of him often and thank the Lord for this amazing professional and caring person who left a lasting imprint on our lives. God Bless him.

I found Dr. Achanta to be an excellent surgeon. He took time to explain procedures thoroughly and was kind and courteous. I have to have follow-up surgery in 6 months and he told us two of the best hospitals to go to for the procedure I will be having. Both my husband and I are extremely confident in Dr. Achanta's abilities, so I will be returning to him instead of going elsewhere. I would highly recommend him to others.
