My Name is Gautam Kantilal Shah. In April, 2004 I had severe leg pain and it got worse in 24 hours time so we went for x-ray. Then we came to Dr. Subir and came to know about Lumbar disc problem. He performed an emergency spinal surgery on 17th or 18th April. Surgery was successful. Now, it is almost 3 years and I do not have any problem. I walk daily 4-5 kms. My left foot had got quite weak and was brought here in an ambulance but now it has enough strength for me to go for morninszg walk every day. I pray to god for Dr. Subir’s best of growth.
I am Kamleshbhai Muljibhai Patel. My village is Dholka and I am working in Gujarat Electricity Board. Before one year I had a problem of disc prolapse with compression of my nerves contolling bladder function (Cauda Equina Syndrome). I was unable to walk and also facing problems in passing urine and stool. I was asked to get advice from Dr. Subir Jhaveri , so I came here. I was advised by him for the operation. I was operated on 5th December, 2008 by Dr. Subir Jhaveri. Today, I am working very normally and I can climb the 30 feet electricity pole very easily after the operation. Now I am feeling quite normal and living an easy life. I was feeling well from the fifth day of the operation and after six months I had resumed my duties very efficiently climbing the electric poles. Now, I have no problems like before. God bless the doctor.
I was having a problem of difficulty in walking, standing for last 10-12 years. I was advised surgery by many doctors, but Dr. Subir Jhaveri assurred me that I will not have any problem from surgery. Doctor advised me to get operated which I did and it has been 7 years since the operation and I do not have any problems. I can do my daily jobs on my own very gracefully and walk 2 kms. Before surgery, I was unable to walk or stand or cook for even 5 minutes. Now,I have no problem. My advice to people with similar problems like me, is to meet Dr. Jhaveri as he is an expert and can cure your problems promptly.
