I recently had major shoulder surgery to repair a rotator cuff injury. Dr Rathinam explained the local anaesthetic block and the general anaesthetic in easy to understand terms which completely relieved my anxiety about the procedure. The local anaesthetic block and the general anaesthetic were expertly done. I had no pain after the operation and I was home the following day. A perfect result and I can recommend him as an expert anaesthetist.

Anaesthetised me for a recent shoulder operation-I had a brachial plexus block which worked brilliantly. I had some finger sensation back by the evening and it had worn off by the next day but a very comfortable day and night following the surgery. Highly recommended!!
