My name is Kishan. I'm from Bangalore. I had to undergo an surgery for a Chondroblastoma, a rare tumor in my skull base and jugular foramen. Finding the right doctor who could remove this tumor was a challenging task for my parents, and yes, we got to meet Dr. Sampath Chandra Prasad Rao, who is an expert in operating tumors of the skull base. My parents handed me into his expert's hands and I was operated on 11th of January 2018. It was a 17 hr surgery! My doctor's efforts, patience, dedication and hard work is why I am here today. Just one month after my surgery, I had to take up my exams and I could do well only because of him. Dr. Sampath is my role model, inspired by him and his work today I've taken up medicine instead of engineering. All he told me was "All the bad is gone", I've recovered and have been doing well, there isn't a day that goes without taking his name. Thank you so much sir, I seek your blessings always.

I had a small lump near jaw under earlobe which started growing faster in months.I had booked Dr.Sampath as he was available nearby.Firstly,he explained the health issue clearly.He told it is a parotid lesion and suggested for US Guided FNAC and Ultrasound scan.It was diagonsed as condition pleumorphic adenoma.The lump was from deep lobe of gland.I could not meet doctor in person but he recommended surgery (parotidectomy).Trust me ,I met the doctor after the surgery. We had lot of confidence on Dr.Sampath who is expertise in skull base surgeries.It was explained to us about preserving the facial nerves as part of parotidectomy.I would like to thank Dr.Sampath chandra prasad Rao for doing surgery successfully. I would also thank his assistant Dr.Sohini and his team members Kiran in making this journey peaceful. I would strongly suggest to go with Dr.Sampath chandra prasad Rao for ENT who is expertise in skull base surgeries.I also suggest patient and their family to have patience of waiting to meet the expertise doctors (they do have lot of commitments and will not make any one wait unnecessarily).
Thanks &Regards

The doctor is really very friendly and will make you feel very comfortable. Though I had to wait for 2 hours for the check up, but the wait actually paid off. He was so great in cleaning and extracting the ear waxes. I felt like I got new ears after the treatment. I will recommend the doctor to anyone who has ear issues.

I was recently diagnosed with a congenital defect in the skull base causing Cerebro Spinal Fluid(CSF) leak through my nose. This condition was persisting from 6 months and I was told that it could be treated through an endoscopic surgery.

We were looking for a skull base surgeon who had performed CFS leak repairs very frequently. We were told that ENT surgeons in India normally get to handle 3-4 such cases in a year and to look for a surgeon who has performed this procedure day in and day out. Our quest ended with DR. SAMPATH CHANDRA PRASAD RAO.

We came to know about him through my cousin who also happens to be an ENT surgeon. On our consultation, Dr.Sampath explained me and my family in simple terms about the condition and the findings of my CT scan. He also explained in detail the surgery procedure and the different techniques he might use to seal my defect. He patiently answered all our queries and also guided us on the post operative care and precautions required. He seemed very confident with the procedure and also mentioned that he has handled these cases multiple times before. We were totally convinced to get the surgery done through him on our first consultation itself. We are based out in Bangalore. Since the procedure needed a lot of post operative rest and follow ups, we were reluctant to travel out of state and was extremely relieved after meeting Dr.Sampath.

The surgery has gone well and the CSF leak has stopped now. I am on my path to recovery. We opted for Apollo Spectra Hospital. Dr.Sampath is still following up with my healing. In every follow up session, he has explained the healing process in detail with a video of my endoscopy and also answered all our questions with patience.

Would also like to mention Dr. Kavitha from Dr.Sampath's team who assisted and over looked the surgery. She constantly followed me up and was always available to guide on post operative do's and dont's. She has been very comforting and cleared all our doubts during pre as well as post surgery.

Hi This is Srikanth. Let me tell in one sentence.

Dr Sampath is living God in my life.

I had a Glomus tumour in my skull base and due to that I was not able to talk and eat properly. It had damaged the nerves. When we and my family were completely black out when we got to know this, we met Dr. Sampath through a referral. Trust me when me spoke to Sampath I regained the strength in my life and had a courage to overcome the disease. My operation went on for 18hrs, Sampath operated continuously and operation was successful. I am back to normal to my routine and completely recovered able to eat and speak more that before.

 

Sampath is an amazing doctor.

Not all doctors are aware that you need to treat the comfort level of a patient before you can successfully diagnose a condition and prescribe a treatment plan. Dr. Sampath is one such doctor. He is knowledgeable, compassionate, kind and a thorough professional. I have undergone two major ear surgeries and both the times he made me feel at ease. Providing the best diagnosis and treatment, he is a very fine doctor

I was recently diagnosed with Jugular Paraganglioma - a benign tumour in the ear in Nov 2019.

 

Our quest for a surgeon for skull based, middle ear surgeries ended with Dr. Sampath Chandra Prasad Rao. The morbidity associated with the disease was extremely high due to the location of the tumour and involved various nerves. On our very first meeting we spent nearly 2.5 hours with the Doctor. He explained to us all the procedures involved and the associated complications with pictures. It took us only 2 meetings in order to go ahead with the surgery.

 

Dr. Sampath took us through a detailed, step by step information after which we had no queries to seek further clarification. Our second meeting therefore was scheduled only to finalise the dates and the place of surgery. We were totally convinced that if I had to undergo a surgery, it had to be through him. His detailed explanation during consultation helped us prepare ourselves mentally in order to go through this complicated procedure. Dr. Sampath was so precise and meticulous in his diagnosis and the associated morbidity. It happened to be an 18 hour long surgery and we are extremely thankful for the Doctor and his team for the way they have handled such complicated surgery with utmost care. I was told that post surgery, (18 long hours) Dr. Sampath had the patience to explain the entire surgical procedure to my spouse.

 

Dr. Sampath ensured no nerve was compromised during the surgery which gives me so much hope to recover from the morbidity. We went through the surgery at Manipal Hospital and needless to say, we were extremely happy with the pre and post operative care extended by Manipal hospital under the able guidance of Dr. Sampath. All the Doctors, nurses and the support staff are extremely empathetic and took really good care. Would also like to mention Dr. Anupama for all the comforting before the surgery, Dr. Paritsoh Pandey & his team who did the Embolization. Dr. Rhea and Dr. Anoopa from Dr. Sampath’s team who took utmost care during my stay at the hospital. I am on my path to recovery and continue to visit Dr. Sampath.

 

In today’s commercially driven world, its people like Dr. Sampath who restore faith in mankind.

 

Thank you Dr. Sampath, we are ever grateful to you!

I am Sadia Bulbul from Bangladesh. I have gone through a surgery on 31 December 2016. My doctor recognized my disease as Petrous bone cholesteatoma in my left ear. My doctor Dr. Sampath Chandra Prasad Rao is an excellent doctor.  I am not facing any kind of complications after the surgery. I feel really blessed. The surgical team was awesome and Dr. Sampath was excellent in his work and efforts. He always inspired me at the time visiting him. He words during surgery that “you have to be strong in your mind” helped me in my full recovery. I am doing well in my recovery process.  I am now studying M.S.S in Sociology at Dhaka University. I am thankful to the team that cured me of the disease. I am also grateful to the doctors in Dhaka for giving the chance to meet Dr. Sampath. Please keep me in your prayers.
