Hi. My name is Muthu Alagappan. I tore my ACL and Meniscus a year back playing basketball and had come to SRCSS to undergo an arthroscopic surgery. At the outset, I was very reassured by the diagnosis, methodology of the treatment and post-operative rehab explained by Dr. Arumugam and his team. I was introduced to the entire team – Dr. Arumugam, Assistant Doctors and Sports Physios - before the surgery itself so that I was comfortable with them from Day 1. It makes a big difference to a patient if he or she knows beforehand as to who would be taking care of them during this period.
For an ACL injury the rehab and post-operative follow up is as important as the surgery itself. This is where the entire SRCSS team and their state of the art rehab centre made a big difference to me. They were very precise and systematic regarding the whole process. Consistent reviews and follow ups by their doctors and physiotherapist along with the world class equipment to monitor my progress made my recovery that much easier. Another important area was the physiological aspect that they worked on. It is always difficult to come back after an injury and there are a lot of demons that play around in your mind. However the entire team gave me the reassurance that I could get back to where I was and kept motivating me towards that goal.
Today I am proud to say that I am back to the basketball court after 6 months with a lot of confidence and self-belief. My game has never been better before. I have only the wonderful team of SRCSS to thank for and express my sincere gratitude to them. Thank you once again SRCSS!!!
