We visited Dr Ashwin last year as my father had severe back pain after lifting weights. We were advised surgery 2 years back, but after meeting the doctor he thoroughly explained us the problem of spondylolisthesis and told that this condition is common in the population. He also told us that all the patients do not require surgery and advised simple back exercises and modification in his activities. He prevented an unnecessary surgery for my father. Doctor patiently listens to the problems an explains thoroughly. We recommend Dr Ashwin to any patient seeking spine care.
I had severe neck pain and arm pain since quite a some time but ignored it. I am a Senior software developer with administrative responsibilities and long work hours. But this time the pain was very severe and I was unable to work. I visited DR and he advised an MRI after examination. The MRI had prolapsed disc at the C56 level. I got tensed as I thought it meant surgery as for several colleagues in my field who had similar issue. I was surprised as the doctor recommended a neck support brace and medications and asked me to be calm as there wasn’t any weakness in the hand. He told me that 80-90 percent discs resolve naturally within 4-6 weeks and asked me to be patient. I trusted him and after 3-4 weeks I was completely pain free and back to work as usual. The pain happens once in a while but is completely avoidable if I take the necessary precautions as told by dr. I am very happy as dr Khandge helped me avoid a spine surgery.
