    I was admitted in chettinad hospital for severe abdomen pain and underwent a laproscopy surgery for ovary torsion led by Dr.Binu and her team. I appreciate the timely and quick  decision to go for laproscopy surgery which is painless and within seven days I am able to go for a normal routine life. Also Dr.Binu is very transparent of what she is going do. Also during post surgery period, she is very kind and caring and answered all my queries patiently and through phone call as well. Above all I glorify my lord Jesus christ for his grace and mercy for a successful surgery.
