My wife was so disappointed and very sad due to her tummy because of Ventral Hernia. She got a hope after we met Dr. Padmakumar at Keyhole clinic. Now she is so excited to go to work with out wearing the abdomen binder. We are thankful to Dr. Padmakumar and his efficient team (Dr. Pai and Dr. Kevin) for their tremendous skill in performing her surgery. Their talent and caring manner is a credit to the medical profession. No words are enough to appreciate their service. We want to thank you from the bottom of our heart for the warmth with which you treated her to good health.

Padmakumar sir is one of the best surgeon doctor I have met. I had an inguinal hernia laparoscopic surgery by doctor.. amazingly done with almost very less pain after the operation.. a doctor with God gifted magical hands.. a highly qualified world record holder.. done more than 8000 plus surgeries and counting..

I would recommend keyhole laparoscopic clinic for anyone who needs a surgery.. humble and caring doctor.. and about the staff really good care about patients .. Sandya, Viji, Deepa and a manager. Also pharmacist.. all superb.. they follow up even after the surgery equally..

May God bless and strengthen Doctor and staff for all the needy..

Thank you Doctor and Team again..

Dr. Padmakumar is an excellent surgeon, very skilled, very positive and extremely down to earth . He installs confidence in patient, explains in words any normal person can understand and support the patient throughout from the psychological starting of a patients surgery life cycle till the recovery phase. He takes call at whatever time and help the patient\attendant with required information/advice with patience .It was so comfortable to interact with him for my wife’s Umbilical Hernia surgery which was complex and was a complete open surgery. We are greatly indebted to him for his wonderful support/expertise during/before/after the surgery.

Being a resident of Palakkad our accessible point for hernia treatment is Coimbatore. But at the advice of my two daughters staying abroad insisted to meet Dr R Padmakumar keyhole clinic. On visiting him I realized how humble and efficient doctor he is. He with his team of doctors did my hernia laproscopic surgery at Lakeshore hospital to the best of our expectations. We are thankful to him and his team for all the care and support given. Our special thanks to all the staff of keyhole clinic to their support and care given from beginning till end.

My Search for best hernia treatment at Kochi, ended up with Dr. R. Padmakumar, Keyhole clinic, on a reference from one of my relatives. I was beyond impressed with my experience there! Everything from my very first appointment ran on time which was a rare experience to me. Dr. Padmakumar is great, really understanding, has a team of expert doctors and excellent support staffs. All the communication, instructions, follow up before and after the surgery were excellent. My wholehearted thanks to the entire team and I highly recommend this clinic for those who seek excellent medical care for their related health issues.

I am Mrs. Ajithakumari, w/o Ajayakumar, 62 years from Kurla West, Mumbai. It was a wonderful experience when I came into Dr. R. Padmakumar’s care for my very old critical hernia problem which none of other doctors entertained in confidence. I do not find words to thank him and his team for giving me a new birth by performing the surgery so confidently. I did not feel I was under his knife in the Operation theater or thereafter. Dr. Padmakumar is indeed the most treasured of the doctors I have been previleged to meet. He treated me as if I was a family member during all my meetings with him before and after surgery. The post operative results exceeded my best expectations. He is easily and directly accessible over phone or email which he promptly responds even after surgery. My experience with him was really amazing. His team of other doctors and staff of key hole clinic are great. I would highly recommend him to anyone who need a general and laparoscopic surgery. I would rather say, “Give him the patient and relax”.

Mrs. Ajithakumari,

I had a laproscopic hernia surgery a few years ago with Dr Padmakumar and it was a really good experience. I also recommended my mother to visit Dr Padmakumar for her laproscopic Thyroid surgery and she is doing excellent as well. He is a well experienced doctor and a skilled laproscopic surgeon.
