Hi I am Mareena and I am very happy and satisfied patient of Dr Padmakumar as he have helped me to change myself the exact way I really wanted. I was weighing 105 kg when I did my surgery,and now I am 79kg. I was suffering from diabetic, hypertension, back pain, pcod etc…Now l am free from all these things and not taking medicines for anything .only some iron ,calcium ,and vitamins that’s it.Morethan that I used to suffer from very bad migraines since childhood.Now I am 99 percent free from that.I have undergone 4 surgeries before for someother health issues . But my friends let me say you this was the most comfortable and relaxed surgery I had till now and soon recovery and not much rest needed at all.Now you don’t know how much energetic I am in my life .More than that I have become more young than before as I was at the time of my marriage.Now I am 40yrs.Being like this I feel more confident. Thanks to DrPadmakumar and his entire team👏👏👏👏👍.Another best quality about this doctor is that the very good friendly relationship between the doctor and patient.we feel very comfortable with him when we share our problems.The exact way how a child is comfortable with his or her father .He is very down to earth person. IF we are in need of any emergency we can call him at anytime,he picks him phone and answer us patiently even if he is busy other than the surgery time. I suggest to my friends who are very obese like me before and suffering from diabetic etc can do gastric sleeve without hesitating .people may force you not doing.It is you are the one who have to decide and no one else.At the beginning my husband and family members was not happy to do the surgery.But I decided doing it .Now seeing my change all are happy .Sorry I have written a lot to read.This was because I really wanted to share my happiness and relief to others

All the years after my first delivery, I had been struggling to attain weight loss. I infact tried all diets out there but nothing gave me long term results. I was diagnosed with High Blood Pressure , hypothyroidism metabolic syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome , acid reflux, heartburn, pre-diabetes, , migraines, sinuses, foot and knee pain.

At one point my weight had reached 115 kg and this was the time I decided that enough was enough and that I have to find a one time solution for weight loss.

I heard about Dr.R.Padmakumar from his online programs and decided to meet the doctor for a consultation. On the first meeting itself I could feel the positive vibe of Dr. Padmakumar and his passion for helping people change there life’s for the better. He is truly caring and explained everything in a way which clears any doubt that we might have. The whole team of keyhole clinic is friendly , knowledgble and supportive. They really made me feel comfortable and welcome.

After surgery my life has turned great and the only regret is not having done the surgery earlier. After one year of surgery I lost 40kg and feel healthier and younger and have gained so much more confidence. I feel the best looking at myself in the mirror again.

I am truly thankful and grateful to Dr.Padmakumar and the entire team at keyhole clinic for bringing back the biggest smile on my face.

It’s not easy to get a second chance in life , but I am blessed to have one .I was obese all my life and was getting into depression. I tried all the fat diets, actual diets and exercises together but never got a positive change. Other than psychological disturbances I gained nothing. That’s when I read about Doctor Padmakumar and went for a consultation. He made me understand the complete procedure of bariatric surgery. I fear the name Hospital, but Doctors logic his positivity and the knowledge he imparted about my health made me feel to take a decision to move forward with the surgery well here I am with a new beginning Dr. Padmakumar gave me a new life!! Thank You Dr.!!
