This is the story of a 40-year-old patient of a serious brain disorder called right mesial temporal (RMT) sclerosis. In his own words the patient, Saneerappa A B, who lives on the outskirts of Bangalore, describes how his difficult battle with this serious condition took a dramatic turn for the better after he met Dr N K Venkataramana, the Founder and Chief Neurosurgeon of Brains in December 2016. RMT Sclerosis, also known as Hippocampal sclerosis (HS),leads to serious loss of neuronal cells and causes seizures.
Greetings from me and my family to Dr. Venkataramana. I am a resident of Dasarahalli on Tumkur Road, Bangalore City. For eight long and traumatic years I suffered from a serious neurological condition that caused seizures. In this period I consulted several neurologists in and around Bangalore but to no avail. It seemed I had reached a dead-end with little hope of recovery.
In December 2016 the President of the Karnataka Rakshana Veedike, T A Naryan Gowda advised me to consult Dr Venkataramana. On my first visit the doctor examined me clinically and evaluated all my reports, following which he patiently explained the problem. “You have a problem on the right side of your brain,” he said. “But don’t worry, this can be treated with a surgery.” Initially, the thought of a brain surgery was unnerving, but the doctor gave me the confidence to go through it.
I was admitted to the Brains Hospital on January 25, 2017 and operated upon on January 27. During my stay at the hospital I was asked to follow certain instructions which I did religiously.
I am now seizure-free and feeling much better. I am very grateful to Dr. Venkataramana, he is equivalent to god for me.
