"8 months ago, I, Sujatha (50 years old), struggled with a frozen shoulder, rendering my right hand unusable for years. Despite visiting multiple hospitals without finding a cure, I discovered Dr. Ratnakar through a recommendation. After tests, he recommended a shoulder arthroscopy cuff repair. Post-surgery, I feel great and can now perform daily tasks independently. Thank you, Sir."
