Dear Dr. Naveen,

As you remember, I had a plastic surgery: reduction rhinoplasty and chin augmentation in the Appollo Hospital on April 8th this year. I would like to thank you for your guidance and support before and after the surgery. But most importantly, I am so grateful to you for the surgery itself. I am very happy with the results, the surgery has completely changed my life. Also I would like to add that I am very satisfied with the service provided by the Appollo Hospital. Thank you so much.

Best regards,

I ****** from Lagos Nigeria had severe burns to my face and my two hands.I was treated in my country's best hospitals namely- National hospital Abuja,Uch Ibadan etc but my injury was badly managed. I developed contracture on the left side of my face which was gradually deforming my face and my neck was bending to the left and all the Doctors I visited said my neck muscles were the cause. My husband through the internet,friends got to know about Apollo hospital Bangalore and about you Dr Navin Rao.I travelled to Bangalore- India in June 2010 and you performed a 7hrs 30mins surgery to release the contracture on the left side of my face and you said nothing is wrong with my neck muscles that it is the contracture of the skin.I travelled back to Bangalore-India in february 2011 and you notice another contracture on my neck and you performed another surgery to release it and you also performed tummy tuck and liposuction on me. As of today all I can say to you Dr. Navin Rao is thank-you for saving my life and God Bless you for all you have done to me as my health is improving every day.

I saw Dr. Naveen Rao to inquire about abdominoplasty as well as a breast lift and implants. Dr. Rao was my third doctor I received a consultation regarding these procedures. I found Dr. Rao to be very open and honest about all aspects of the surgery. He had the qualifications and experience that I was looking for in a plastic surgeon. I would highly recommend Dr. Naveen Rao to anyone looking to improve the way they look. I am very satisfied with the results because he took extra care to make sure everything was done properly and that the results would be perfect. I really couldn't ask for a better doctor in Bangalore.

Thank you Dr. Naveen.

Dear Dr Rao,

Thank you for your e-mail requesting feedback on the procedure I had. I am more than happy to give my view of treatment I received. My Partner had liposuction to his abdomen in June 2009. I had liposuction to my abdomen and thighs in February 2010. I was thrilled with the results. I am a senior nurse, and have worked in the NHS (British government health service) for the last twenty eight years. I currently work at a prestigious London hospital, and I ensured that I did my research thoroughly prior to considering cosmetic surgery abroad.

I had a completely positive experience, which i have no hesitation in recommending. The results exceeded my expectations, and Dr Rao was professional, informative, caring throughout as were all the staff from the anaesthetist who had worked for a number of years in Britain, to the Nursing team, and periphery staff. I was totally confident in the treatment and care I recieved. I was also present at the hospital during my partners procedure, and spent time with him in recovery room following his operation, i observed the working of the theatre etc, and was impressed by all that I observed.

From my knowledge of working within the NHS and interface with other private organisations I am aware that some facilities do not observe regulations or recommendations which we would consider to be fundamental in The NHS. It is evident that Dr Rao's insists that his work falls strictly within these parameters and maintains his professionalism at all levels, patient safety and well being are paramount. Dr Rao fully explained the procedures, and follow-up care, and Standards or hygiene, catering, and private room were excellent.

Of note to others who are considering attending:-

- In India the norm is the facility that a patient can have an 'attendee', normally a Friend or family member to stay with them throughout their hospital stay, and a small but perfectly adequate bed is available to the attendee for the duration of the hospital stay. This is not a format that we are familiar with in Britain, but I thought was an excellent idea, I had booked a hotel room whilst my partner was undergoing his procedure, but would have stayed with him were I aware of this facility. For my procedure I went to India alone and was very well cared for by the nursing staff. During both attendances The catering manager visited to offer western, Indian or Chinese food, fresh fruit juices etc. For a minimal cost the 'attendee is included in the catering which was delicious and excellent.

- There is a coffee shop with outdoor seating which is a good facility, particularly for 'attendees' to visit whilst patient is undergoing procedure.

- There is a cash point machine at the gates into the hospital. I hope the above might be of help with the web site. I am more than happy to answer any further questions that would assist with process as I have nothing but praise for the whole process and for my results.

Kind regards

Hi Dr. Rao,

Type of Surgery: Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with liposuction I am extremely happy with the results of my tummy tuck performed by Dr. Rao in October 2010. I had received a botched tummy tuck in April 2010 by another Dr. at another facility here in Bangalore. As a result, I suffered months worth of complications afterward and was subsequently deformed by the original procedure. Dr. Rao met with the very distraught me a few months after my original procedure and discussed with me what my options for a corrective procedure were -- as expected, he would have to totally revise the original procedure in order to achieve desired results. Dr. Rao performed an extended tummy tuck with liposuction and completely corrected the disfigurement from my original procedure and gave me the results that I originally had hoped for. I'm beyond delighted with the results and am happy to say that I suffered zero complications after the revised procedure. Dr. Rao is a skilled surgeon who thoroughly and realistically discusses your desired procedure with you -- not to mention that he also possess a great bedside manner. He also provides the necessary care and followup post surgery ensuring that the healing process runs smoothly. I am 100% happy with my results and would return to Dr. Rao without hesitation for any further cosmetic procedures. Cheers,

Dear Dr. Naveen Rao,

I underwent liposuction at your hospital. From the very first consultation right through to my discharge the care I received was second to none. The expertise of everyone with whom I had interaction was excellent. Whenever I speak to people about my experiences at your hospital I, inevitably, refer to the hospital as the, "Apollo Hotel!"

The levels of cleanliness, medical and nursing care ( not to mention the catering) makes this slip of the tongue an easy one to make. I have no hesitation in recommending your hospital and I when I consider further surgery the Apollo will be at the top of my list.
