After procedures within last 12 years I was referred to Dr K as one out of top five in Shire.
Not only was he prompt in booking me in for a consultation he was efficient and fast in performing my surgical procedure. He also made me feel well-informed before and after my procedure.

The BEST !!

  • Question about Colonoscopy

    lazy bowel resulting in chronic constipation for 60 odd years what can i do about it?

    I agree that a colonoscopy is necessary for your assessment. It would be also important to make sure that there is not a secondary cause for your chronic constipation. Common causes to exclude would include drug interactions, thyroid disease and electrolyte dysfunction.

    Dr. Sanjay Kariappa

  • Question about Hernia repair

    Can a hernia be fully removed?

    I agree. Although there is often a lump that is easily felt with a hernia, there is nothing to be removed. Repairing the hole through which something has 'herniated through' is what is necessary. And this is done either with stiches, or more commonly with the use of a prosthetic material (mesh)
