It is not often that I complement a Specific Individual, his Associate and the operating support staff in the medical profession as I am about to do for the Kingwood offices of ORTHOPAEDIC ASSOCIATES,L.L.P. For a time (two years) it was necessary for the writer to endure a growing pain generating from my back and down the left leg, during this period, visits to several Pain Specialist (all of whom were qualified doctors in their chosen profession) was done. Their recommendation of medication and/or spinal injection gained temporary relief, however, the pain became stronger and more inhibiting with time. The final recommendation of the pain doctor was that I have a enclosed MRI and a Circulation Flow Test performed. The doctor performing the flow test through my circulation system was more than sure that a pinch nerve were the cause of discomfort. Knowing that I do not travel to downtown Houston under any circumstances, he recommended Dr. Navin Subramanian as the professional to resolve my predicament.
With a CD copy of the MRI, the written report pertaining to the finding. a appointment was scheduled to see DR. Navin Subramanian. What follows is the writers complimentary opinion of a well organized, highly reliable and efficiently run operation. Meeting with the Drs. Associate 1st to provide details of the problem and any
specific details required went easily and smoothly, required x-rays were taken and then Dr. Subramanian met with me to provide my choices for correction.
Dr. Subramanian provided all the alternatives with the final decision as mine. His confidence level and specifics of my problem, provided me with the assurance to have the Operation. In my 80 years of life and having had operations from a broken appendix, ruptures and water seals I have never seen a procedure move so smoothly and efficiently from the office of ORTHOPAEDIC ASSOCIATES, L.L.P. to the Hospital and then to Home with Home care Nursing. To coin an old phrase, all the i’s were dotted and t’s crossed.
My personal thanks and gratitude goes to Dr. Subramanian, The pain with my left side and leg has completely dissipated, I am able to sleep in my own bed and turn from the left side to right side without waking or groaning from pain. While an anticipated healing time of 6-12 months was required, it appears that the surgery was so well performed that I have been released as fully repaired in 4 months.
