In December of 2012, I left California for New Delhi to take care of my aunt who had just broken her hip bone from a fall. She was being treated by the Army hospital at the time, and the advise of the doctor was for her to lay in bed and allow time to heal the joint, strapped in a make shift prosthetic of some sort. She was in serious pain and the doctors had advised against any surgery. The day Dr. Ashish visited, she had a serious case of urinary infection and it is my honest opinion that another day in that condition would have been fatal. We then proceeded to move her under Dr. Ashish’s care, where his team prepared her for the eventual surgery. Within a week, the surgery was performed successfully and she was back home in two weeks. Dr. Ashish led the entire process, helped us manage the hospitalization, managed the stabilization, was in communication with us at all hours of the day and was a bedrock of support. Having resided in the United States for a number of years, I was familiar with the kind of care we get here. To find an equally professional level of care in India came as a pleasant surprise. It would not be an exaggeration to say that with the very timely help from Dr. Ashish, my aunt is still alive, and walking around with a walker, at a ripe old age of 96. She recently flew to Hyderabad to attend the wedding of one of her grand niece, a miracle we are all have come to believe in.
