Location: Private practice Consultation for herniated dis

The specialist took his time explaining my condition and treatment options. Left the practice feeling confident and reassured. Worth the 8 hour round trip to see him. I have recovered 100%. Best specialist consultation I have had so far.

  • Question about Gamma knife

    My mom was suffering from brain tumour and went through gamma knife treatment but now she's facing effects like inhability to speak properly, swelling in legs, numbness in left side of the body - can u suggest something to me plz

    While radiosurgery is considered noninvasive (as you dont have any surgical scar), as stated above, the effects of radiation can be just as bad. Radiation is not a benign treatment option. The fact that her speach is affected suggests that the location of the tumour is in the speech area making surgery also a risk prone option. . A lot depends on the type of tumor it is.Hope she improves with time

    Dr. Santosh Poonnoose

  • I have , l 4/5 spinal stenosis . I can barely walk and frequently collapse due to spasm from back to knees . I seem to be getting weaker on standing . Cortisone injections have helped a little . So far , i have been adviced nothing more can be done safely . I would appreciate more positive help . Meanwhile i am trying to remain active .

    Kind regards Mr Art Vink mitchell pk sa

    Dear Mr Vink
    Dr Poonnoose sees public and private patients at FMC.
    You will need a referral letter from your GP to be able to see him. If you have private health insurance you can see him in his private rooms.
    If you are a public patient, you can see him in FMC clinics.
    Dr Poonnoose is overseas and will not be back until 14th Jan. I suggest you get a referral in the meantime and we can go from there. I hope this helps.
    Regards
    Kerryn
