He then joined the Indian Army Medical Corps, in 1981. While serving in the Indian Army, he completed his Masters in General Surgery from ‘Armed Forces Medical College’, Pune in May 1990. Here, he had immense experience in trauma surgery and various emergency surgeries. In August 1997, he resigned from the Armed Forces as a Lieutenant colonel. He then worked for a few years in a couple of major hospitals in Kerala, in the departments of general surgery and gasterosurgery, carrying out all types of elective and emergency surgeries, including surgeries for gastro-intestinal malignancies and laparoscopic gastro-intestinal surgeries. In May 2004 he joined the ‘Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences and research centre’, Kochi, Kerala, a 1400 bed, tertiary referral hospital, as the chief of the Unit of diabetic lower-limb and Podiatric Surgery. He has been the organizing secretary of the International ‘Amrita Endocrinology and Diabetic Foot Conference’, held once in two years, in the institute campus. On 1st June 2015 he joined the Aster Medcity Hospital, a quartinary care institute, Kochi, Kerala, as Senior Consultant of the Department of Podiatric Surgery. This is the largest of its kind in India, and concentrates mainly on limb salvage. Cases managed include extensive necrotizing fasciitis, plantar-space infections, diabetic gangrene of the lower limb and osteomylites, and severely destroyed foot and ankle Charcot. This is the only center in India where foot and ankle reconstructive surgeries are being performed routinely in large numbers, in high-risk Diabetic patients. He has devised a novel technique of foot and ankle stabilization, ‘The Amrita Sling Technique.’ He has also devised techniques of using Polymethyl methacrylate, to replace severely destroyed Charcot foot bones. These manuscripts have been published in international medical journals, and the surgical videos have been uploaded in the You Tube.

He is the principal investigator in a number of major research programmes. Most notable among these is the new invention of an entire foot bones replacement prosthesis. This again has been provisionally patented. By comprehensive management, the center has been able to maintain a limb salvage rate of 91.5%, in diabetic foot and lower-limb problems, comparable to the best centers in the world. He has over 200 research papers published in national and international journals.

He was invited to speak on two topics, one on ‘Salvage procedures in Diabetic Foot infections’, and a ‘Video presentation of the ‘novel foot and ankle reconstruction techniques’, which he has devised. I have devised, For the First time in the world, a novel technique of foot and ankle stabilization, ‘The Amrita Sling Technique.’ This is lieu of an external fixator, after internal fixation. I have also devised techniques of using Polymethyl methacrylate, to replace severely destroyed Charcot foot bones. These surgeries have been uploaded in the You-Tube: The links are: 1.

If you do not have any severe symptoms, then waiting for two months for the GB surgery is fine. You can reduce intake of fatty foods to prevent any pain and abdominal symptoms.

It means that if you have symptoms related to GB stones, then this finding is significant, and would require treatment, which is usually GB removal. If you have no symptoms regarding GB, then it is an incidental finding and need not be worried about it.

In all probability you have bacterial infection of the 1st toe of your Rt foot. Please limit your ambulation to the minimum. Please keep the right foot elevated on a chair while being seated to reduce swelling. You may need to take antibiotics, and hence please consult a general surgeon, who can examine you and prescribe the appropriate antibiotic if required.

It depends on the cause of Elephantiasis. If it is due to Filariasis, then she can have recurrent lymphangitis and associated fever and leg pain. This can be prevented by taking a medicine called Banocide, once every 6 months. Please consult a general physician who can assess the condition and prescribe the correct dosage and duration of the medication.

Since you have undergone surgery 20 days back, avoid fatty foods for about 3 months or so. Otherwise you can take normal diet and physical activity.

If it is confirmed that the abdominal pain you are having is due to Gall Stones, and you really are very symptomatic, it is best to get the GB removed by minimal access surgery.
