This is the greatest doctor in the world in my humble opinion. He did my surgery in the least invasive way possible. No other facilities would even consider his method which worked exceptionally well and had me on my feet a whole week earlier than expected and completely rehabilitated 6 weeks ahead of schedule. Also, with his method my scarring was minimal compared to what anyone forecasted. Thank you Doc!

Dr Murthy did a very difficult surgery for me, surgery that my local surgeons didn’t want to provide, and without which I was unlikely to survive. Thanks to Dr. Murthy’s extraordinary skill, my surgery was quite successful and now I can lead a normal life. Can’t recommend him highly enough.
