Six years back, I had colon cancer. The shock of hearing that was depressing. After being admitted to hospital for 2 days, I was recommended many doctors, but just did not trust anyone of them ( they wouldn't even explain anything properly, how would I trust them). Luckily for me, Dr. Ramakrishna, an orthopedic doctor in Mesa, recommended me to see Dr. Paravasthu Ramanujam. When I consulted Dr. Ramanujam, I instantly knew he was the right Doctor. He had clarity, was friendly, had deep knowledge, and explained the process well to me, my wife, and daughter. My colon cancer was in stage llb. The growth was big. Dr. Ramanujam performed perfect surgery and saved my life. No exaggeration. He really performed a miracle. It was a perfect surgery and I recovered fully in 8-10 days and was actually back in office. The 6 month chemo was difficult, painful, but I came through that as well triumphant. Dr. Ramanujam also conducted two follow up colonoscopies. Again did a great job. After 6 years now, I can say I am a survivor and the biggest contributing factor after my faith is Dr. Ramanujam. I am ever grateful to this pure soul and very best colon cancer surgeon.
Dr Ramanujam was referred to me by an RN who worked in the GI department of a local hospital. YOU CAN GET NO BETTER RECOMMENDATION THAN FROM A NURSE. I also am a retired nurse and am very picky about who my physician is. I found Dr R to be extremely compassionate yet also educated me in my disease (in fact has written medical journals on GI disorders). Other Colorectal MD's (with high profile educations from prestigious institutions) had suggested radiation and chemo which after I researched my diagnosis and had a second opinion at MD Anderson I found I did NOT NEED radiation or chemo. (Do you know the side effects of having irradiated rectums?). Dr R. also agreed with MD Anderson's diagnosis independently. I trust his judgement totally and he treats you with respect I don't think you could be in better hands. When I got a clean cancer diagnosis after outpatient surgery and a six month followup under Dr R. I burst into tears in his office and he took the time to reassure me about my diagnosis and prognosis. You don't find many surgeons with a heart.
