Our Success Stories

Our Patient Testimonials

I felt a lump on my left groin and suddenly suffered severe pain not able to even attend to simple daily ordeal. Physically it was very difficult to sit or even stand and walk. After attending to get the pain subsided for a while, I consulted Dr.M.Ramesh at A.V.Hospital in Basavanagudi.

I was glad to have a very cordial reception. The doctor Sri.M.Ramesh diagonised it as a case of inguinal hernia and suggested for a surgery to overcome the difficulty.

Around 15years back, Doctor Sri M.Ramesh had attended on me a similar problem of less intensity on my right groin, where I have no problem so far. The surgery was done in the latest technique without causing pain related to it. Now, on being advised normal, usual clinical tests to access my fitness considering I had a cardiac case earlier, I was given a date for surgery.

On the day fixed Dr. M.Ramesh operating on me for Hernia, with latest laparoscopic method, I felt relaxed overcoming the pain. Dr.Ganesh who assisted the main surgeon Dr.M. Ramesh and Sri Dr. RamaMurthy cardiologist also enabled a smooth surgery without any problem in the whole process.

Entire team of Nursing and office staff are found most cordial extending their utmost hospitality. I thank Dr.M. Ramesh and his team and all his staff.


Respectable, Honourable & Truthful Dr.M.Ramesh

I am G.M. Saleem, the guardian of Rahmat Ulla Khan. He was suffering from fever and high blood sugar from last 15days. So we admitted in our surrounding nursing home. After all the necessary tests were done, they informed us that there were small stones in the Kidney and that it was not a problem. Since the doctor said that, we took it lightly and after 3 days, there was swelling in the right leg and a lot of pain too. We went from one doctor to another upon recommendation, where another CT scan was asked to be performed. We got the report after 2 days. During this time the right leg swelling and pain persisted. We immediately took the report and came to A.V.Hospital at night 9:00 pm on October 5th. Dr. Ramesh was immediately there to see us. Dr. Ganesh gave an injection. Dr. Ramesh saw the reports and told that the right kidney was almost dead. They wanted to see if the kidney was performing tby an Autopsy scan. Even if 20% of the kidney is working, surgery might not be needed he said. After the report, surgery was advised. On 7th Oct morning 7:00 AM surgery started and went on till noon 12:45. All the doctors did excellent work and the surgery was successful.

Thank you very much all the Doctors and Nurses. Mainly we are thankful for Dr.M.Ramesh and his team. A.V.Hospital is very good and respectable. All the doctors are good and helpful. All the nurses and warden all are very good and excellent. The credit goes to Dr.Ramesh. We heartily thankful to Dr.Ramesh

Rahmat Ulla Khan

I had multiple Inguinal Hernia for the past 2 years. Although I was very active it bothered me at the possible complications in case it gets strangulated.

During this period, based on an advice from a friend of mine, who also underwent Hernia correction Surgery at AV Hospital under the care of Dr. Ramesh Makam and Dr. Ganesh Shenoy, gave me the courage to undergo Laparoscopic Surgery. My first joint consultation with both Dr.Ramesh & Dr.Ganesh gave me the confidence to go ahead. Primarily the manner by which they explained how minimally invasive the whole procedure is and the time to recovery is fast and pain is almost manageable without any pain killer.

The constant attention and care provided by the surgeon and his support staff per & post operation is commendable. My heartfelt and sincere gratitude to all at AV Hospital and wish them success in healing many more.

I am 61years old and basically a home maker, but worked for 6 years before marriage. I have 2 daughters one is a gastroenterologist and the other a Phd in stem cells. The first one is in NewYork and the second one is in London, both working. I have travelled around the world, lived in US for 3 years, about 12years in Japan and visited many other parts as well. I am one of those who go regularly for medical checkups. I lead an active life, a good social circle and keenly interested in yoga, science and general affairs. I have taught children maths in US in a coaching school. This is my second stay here.

I had a biopsy done in late January 2018 and now a Hysterectomy Surgery by Dr.Saraswathi Ramesh. I have nothing but best words for the wonderful treatment by Dr.Sarasathi and the excellent team that she has. The support staff nurses, attendants and others have been extremely courteous, helpful and professional, all responsible for my quick recovery.

I am not professionally competent to talk about Dr.Saraswathi, but suffice it to say that the surgery was done very quickly and minimal loss of blood which enabled a fast recovery. I am grateful to her.

I, Visvendra aged 42 yrs would like to share my experience on the treatment received for Hernia Aurgery at A.V. Hospital on 30/5/2018

It all started when I experienced lower abdomen pain during my early morning jogging at neighborhood park. This continued for 2 months. It was then based on inputs by friend Balaji, I took an appointment with Dr.Ramesh at A.V. Hospital. The doctor explained in detail about Hernia in my case and suggested for a minor surgery. We decided on the dates and the doctor was kind enough to reschedule the dates based on my request.

Then followed surgery on 30/5/2018 where I was successfully operated. The entire team at A.V. Hospital including medical team, support staff were approachable and provided timely guidance and medications.


We were refered to AV Hospital from our Family doctor. So, from the time we came, got admitted, and treated, it was really a heartwarming experience. Specially the doctors, the nurses, the staff everything was so good and it was like a big family. Thanks for all the support and medical attention. All the best, keep doing the best. Thanks again

I was here for “Laparoscopic Oesophagal Diverticulatomy Surgery”. We understood that this is a very critical surgery due to proximity to lungs. Dr. Srinivas Murthy referred us to consult Dr.Ramesh. Thankfully we approached the best doctors Dr.Ramesh & Dr.Ganesh. They took very personal care before, during & after surgery. We are happy and fully satisfied with Doctors, Nurses, & Staff of “A.V.Hospital”. ICU Staff were kind and helpful. We will definitely recommend this hospital/ Doctors to our family & friends.

I personally should say thanks for extra care taken by Dr.Ganesh & Dr.Ramesh. M. I can say A.V.Hospital is very good and extraordinary care will be taken here. Thank you very much

My family was deeply impressed by the highest quality of care my mother received from check-in to check-out. Althrough everyone from admissions to the specialty care unit on the third floor to the surgeon and staff to all the volunteers were outstanding.

I also wanted to spotlight a few specific individuals “Dr.Ramesh sir” and “Dr. Ganesh sir” would like to praise and thank them for their patience, extremely helpful and re-assuring pre-op consult with my mother and family. Finally I was very pleased with the doctor’s care. Thankyou !!

Written on behalf of my mother Ayesha Begaum.

Dr.Ramesh & his team of A.V.Hospital. We are very satisfied with Dr.Ramesh, because my mom was suffering from tumor & she has been operated by Dr.Ramesh and his team. My mother was anemia patient and we had no hope because she had already gone through the first surgery of intestinal gangrene in the hands of Dr.Ramesh and he was very successful in the first surgery. We had full hope with Dr.Ramesh, we went for the operation for the second time and there was a tumor of 2 kgs. We are very grateful to him. In the future we will recommend my friends and colleagues to have counsel with Dr.Ramesh of A.V.Hospital.

My name is Jagdish and I am 25 years old. From past 6 months, I had pain in my stomach. I came to AV Hospital on July 25th. I was diagnosed with hernia. Dr.M.Ramesh & his team conducted the operation. They were courteous and the treatment received was also very good.

Thankyou AV Hospital and Dr.Ramesh sir. This is a good hospital and the sisters were also good.


I come from a remote village in Karnataka. I was fully healthy and after my second pregnancy in 2013, I started having extreme pain and excess bleeding during my periods. I visited many doctors in almost all major hospitals, but still they could not rectify my problem. I still believed in god. This is the law of nature. I finally trusted god and came to A.V.Hospital. I have received excellent treatment here at A.V. Hospital .I underwent Hysteroscopic evaluation of Uterine cavity and the doctors here guided me in the right path. I perceive Dr.Saraswathi as god. Let all be well.


I am Basavaraj from Shivanalli. I use to suffer from severe abdominal pain since 4 months. As per advice of Shivanalli Swamiji, I came and met Dr.Ramesh. Dr.Ramesh spoke to us very nicely. He examined and told that I have Inguinal hernia on my right side. He advised surgery. I underwent Laparoscopic surgery for my Inguinal hernia. Dr.Ramesh and Dr.Ganesh are very nice doctors. They took care of me and did the surgery very nicely. .Now im alright with no pain. All the nurses and staffs took very good care of me. A.V.Hospital is a very good hospital.


I, Pandurang Desai, had to undergo Hernia operation at two sides. I had seen many hernia patients suffering from severe pain for 3-4 days after operation. So I was a bit under tension. But fortunately I underwent the operation by laparoscopy at A.V. Hospital on 4th October 2017, which was performed by Dr.M.Ramesh,, who has a good reputation and expertise in this field along with his team. It is a great surprise that neither I felt any pain after post operation on 1st day, leave alone on the second day. I was discharged on the second day itself. I would like to place on record my happiness and appreciation for the wonderful operation performed by Dr.M.Ramesh.

I, here by Mrs. Badamidevi, was suffering from pain abdomen since 1 month. I consulted Dr. Ramesh at A.V. Hospital on 21/10/17. He suggested CT abdomen & pelvis.

I am feeling better after the surgery. All the service provided at the hospital was really good. I am Thankful to Dr.Ramesh .M, Dr.Ganesh, Dr. Shivakumar & Nursing Staffs.


I have been suffering from heavy periods flow. So I consulted with Dr.Saraswathi & got checkup & tested about it. The result was formation of Fundal Fibroids & Bulky Uterus.

I was advised to undergo diagnostic Hysteroscopy & laparoscopy and puncturing water bubbles inside the ovaries. I got admitted to A.V.Hospital to undergo treatment.

On 1986 october, first operation was conducted at SVRR Hospital Tirupathy for (GJ) Ulcer. After this operation also some problem continues. Again in 1989, at Chennai (Abhiram Hospital) professor Dr. SivaRaman did same (GJ). But still after operation the problem did not resolve(continuously 3 time vomits during day).

For this issue, we have visited so many hospitals like (SVIMS hospital Tirupathi, Appolo Hospital Chennai, CMC Vellowr, BGS Bangalore & also Hyderabad). But here after we consulted Dr.M.Ramesh, and Shri Ganesh and others, have successfully conducted Laparoscopy Surgery and cleared all issue and problems of Ulcer.

After 28 years, this problem got rectified and it is cleared now. Thanks for Dr.Ramesh & Ganesh also the staff of A.V.Hospital

Dr. Srinivas

Starting from the day Dr.Saraswathi(Maam) gave me the good news till the day may baby was born and we got discharged from the hospital, I have had a very pleasant and peaceful journey.

I appreciate and I am thankful to all the doctors and the nursing staff who have been with me during and post delivery. Although the room service was timely, it will be better if the staff are more active.

Thank You A.V.Hospital for this wonderful Experience!

Hearty Thanks to Saraswathi Maam for being with me during the most important phase of my life!

I have come to AV Hospital for the delivery of my second child. My first son was born in New Zealand with some complications during the childbirth. Hence I wanted to be in a place where I can be confident, that I would get the right care and I am happy to inform that I am impressed. I was recommended a C-Section delivery.

C-Section :> Dr.Saraswathi Ramesh, Dr.Rekha and the team of doctors were very reassuring and calmed me before the surgery. The surgery completed as per plan and on schedule under their able care and watch.

The post operative care has been the highlight of my experience at AV Hospital. All the staff have given their best care towards us, exceeding expectation. The daily visit and consultation with specialist doctors gave me peace of mind and comfort in managing the after surgery pain, lactation, health of baby etc. The video consultation by Dr.Rekha helped me in the art behind feeding an infant. Sister Padmavathi’s training and assistance made it so easy to practice feeding. Her dedication to work and willingness to help us learn some traits to caring for the newborn is much appreciated. Overall, all the staff have been very friendly and quick to respond to any questions/ queries at any time of the day. I am very happy with my experience and will highly recommend the services, facility and care rendered to one and all.

Sindhu Sadashiva

My name is Smt. A. Nagarathana, age 65yrs, resident of Hadigal, Thirthahalli. I am a retired Health Assistant of 38 years service rendered in Karnataka State Department of Health & Family Welfare Services.

I was suffering from Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding since 1 year and upon consulting a local gyanecologist, was advised total hysterectomy, and was said it was complicated due to my weight, BMI above 40 & previous laparotomy for ruptured ectopic pregnancy. I was very anxious and skeptical about the advice.

I then contacted Dr.Devendrappa from our previous association. He advised us to come to Bangalore and meet Dr.M.Ramesh & Dr.Saraswathi Ramesh in A.V.Hospital. I came to Bangalore on 15/11/2017

I met Dr.Ramesh, Dr.Saraswathi, and other specialists in AV Hospital and they advised me Laparoscopic Hystrectomy after explaining to me all the advantages and disadvantages of the surgery. On 27/11/2017, I underwent surgery and was kept in the ICU, later shifted to the ward shortly.

Dr.M.Ramesh, Dr.Saraswathi, Dr.Devendrappa, Dr.Harinath, Dr.Ganesh & all other doctors took care of me very well. After surgery I was well taken care by the staff too. I am getting discharged without any problems or tension, feeling happy & healthy. We know that AV Hospital is a well known centre for Laparoscopic surgery in Bangalore. We wish God grace AV Hospital to continue as the top Hospital in Bangalore.
