TESTIMONIALS FROM PATIENTS- NO
It is possible that some surgeons may use old tension repairs like Bassini or Shouldice under the pretext of mesh free surgery. So always insist for mesh free repair by "DESARDA TECHNIQUE" only
1st World Hernia Conference at Milan, Italy 25-29 April 2015
It was a small time lecture, but you have showed your technique in an enthusiastic manner! You were the center of attraction to every single surgeon in the audience! It was a pleasure to me to see you, and to see the opportunity finally given to a surgeon that runs in an opposite direction to the "world".If I can, I will approach you and have a picture of us taken together. It will be an honor!

Speaking from my personal experience, besides the quick recovery and return to normal work, what is remarkable about the Desarda technique is that unlike mesh repair, there is no chance of hernia recurring as this is anatomically impossible. Dr Desarda's methodology is unique and brilliant, and a great gift to the field of surgery. I call it a "gift" because Dr Desarda has neither patented the technique nor charges a royalty from other practitioners and is teaching others.

As I am writing this it is exactly one year since my hernia repair at
your hospital in Pune, India on 2nd February
2016. Since that time I have been through a very difficult year taking care of
my wife who has been seriously ill, but who is now hopefully in the early
stages of recovery.
Throughout 2016 I have had not a single problem with my hernia repair,
carried out at your capable hands. I have undertaken every task with confidence
including gardening, carrying out maintenance on the roof of our home and other
such duties. I hesitate to think how different this situation might have been
had I not had your repair, or perhaps had one of the somewhat faulty and
unreliable mesh repairs I have heard about. I would never have been able to
manage, as at the time I came to you the hernia was increasing in size and my
ability to live and function normally deteriorating rapidly.
Indian expertise is first class!
Once again I extend my heartfelt thanks to you and your team and I wish
you all well for the future. Please feel free to use this letter as a
testimonial for your services. My kind regards,
Alan Mellor, Mandurah, Western Australia
Hope you are doing well. this is now 2 months since my operation and happy to inform
you that the things are getting normal day by day. the recovery so far is quite
normla and I am doing my all day to day work normally just after one week of
operation. I would like to thanks a lot to you for the great work.
Hope your expertiese will be use full to many people like us to get out of

I am now 60 years old and had right inguinal surgery done by Dr. Desarda more than 2 years ago. My recovery was quick. You will start moving around from Day 1. I had previously undergone a mesh repair by laparascopy abroad and it failed. Thank goodness I happened to read about Dr. Desarda's unique methodology and am a happy person today. My only advice is, do not delay and advise other friends and family members to go to Dr. Desarda.

Subject: Hernia repair follow up
Hello Dr. Desarda,
Most people won't understand what I am saying here but I wanted to tell you these things anyway.
It is now approaching 4 weeks since my surgery and it is clear to me that I have achieved my goal. I was afraid that hernia surgery might disrupt the harmonious energy flow in the inguinal area. I enjoy the practice of Shaolin 18 Lohan hands Qigong where the energy dances in my body and needs harmonious and balanced flow through all the meridians. I was quite concerned about mesh placement over several important energy channels. Your surgery not only avoided this but used the natural dynamics and physiology of the body to achieve the repair. I feel younger and my body feels more playful that I have in a long time.
I thank God that He brought me to you and that you do such good work.
Now that my incision has healed, it feels like I never had surgery except that the hernias are gone!
My Hernia Repair at Poona Hospital
Grateful Patient [firstname.lastname@example.org]
follows is a brief feed-back about my recovery after returning to Europe.
day after my operation (on December 18) I found noticeable improvements in pain
levels and was able to move about more and more with less pain. I was surprised
that on the 5th day of the operation I was already sitting comfortably in a
plane on my way home.
stitches were taken out on December 26 - no problems there. I would say that 2
weeks after the operation I was basically free of anything one could call pain.
However, coughing or certain movements would still occasionally cause a little
pinch. This also went away and by the beginning of the 2nd month after the
operation I noticed absolutely nothing - no matter what I would do.
am so glad that I made the extra effort to come to you. I am free of any
problems and since there are no artificial materials used, I know that there
never will be any complications later on.
alternative of a mesh repair - with this simple piece of cloth made of synthetic
material - was for me just not a satisfactory answer. With your repair I know
that there will never be one of those widely reported nasty surprises that mesh
repairs are believed to sometimes cause (like entrapped nerves, or material
failure or fatigue of some kind or the other).
- I have no idea if this is always the case - but my scar is now mostly
invisible. The lower half is still a little pink and slightly raised - but the
upper half has completely disappeared. I still can't believe how well it all
healed. With so little scaring I don't understand why some patients think
complicated operations with endoscope are even worth considering.
have noticed that worldwide, the list of surgeons using your technique is
increasing rapidly. For myself, however, should I ever need a repair on my other
side - I will certainly be happy to see you in Pune again.
like to thank you and your staff again and wish you all the best.
a most grateful patient

Dear Dr Desarda,
you for the Holiday greetings! Sorry it took so long to respond. Finally getting
a moment to write you back. Slowly getting back into the swing of things since
my return...and the holidays were busy. How is everything? I am doing well.
Everything seems to be healing good, little by little. Although the right
testicle doesn't quite hang as low as the left. This must be from the operation
on the hydroceole. Is this the normal result? This was a bit disturbing at
first. Although it feels ok, and is getting better over time. Overall though,
all seems to be well, and I think you did a great job. Thank you for fixing my
hernia and everything else.

for the delay in replying, I was on holiday with my family in the
USA. I hope to have a first cut of my
web site ( www.herniahints.org ) on-line very
very happy with the result of my hernia so far. Coughing is no longer painful.
and I feel that I can swim even better than before. The only question I have is
about playing my saxophone. You assistant said to wait 1 month. It's one month
now - so I tried playing 2 days this week. It was really great to be able to
play again. But afterwards the hernia repair felt a bit sore. It seems to me (to
my surprise) that blowing the saxophone puts more pressure on the repair than
even coughing! So for the moment I have decided to limit my saxophone playing
for a while? What do you think? How long?
in advance. David FRANCE

stayed at the Poona Hospital for a week following my proceedure so
therefore had no need to stay in any hotels while in India. All the

I do then you'll love the hospital food. Talk with you soon Brian.

(second opinion please)
I have had the sutures removed today at my local
GP. He feels that the incision area should not look this red after 16 days (see
attached pics) and he thinks that the wound may be infected, either at the
surface or deeper inside. He has given me a 10 day course of
antibiotics ...Keflex/cephalexin 4 X 500mg per day for 10 days, and put the six
adhesive strips across it, and asked me to see him again in 5 days to have
another look at it. I have attached some pics taken close up about ten minutes
ago ...pic number 8513 is the most natural skin color, it's taken without flash,
...all the others are taken with flash on. In pic 8513, you may see what looks
like some pink/red inflammation extending out slightly from the lower part of
the incision...it is slightly sore to touch in this area but not painful. It is
weeping/leaking slightly, visible in pic 8513 on the third piece of white strip
(third from the top) I still have the stabbing burning pain when rolling over in
bed (left or right) during the night but the good news is that I believe it is
gradually decreasing. I will send you an update (and more pics) when I have had
5 days of Cephalexin

arrived safely and without incident. I've been handling 50 kilo loads without
any adverse events and have been able to do my job fully as a ranch hand here in
Santa Barbara. I
don't recall removing stitches before but the procedure was quick and easy and
there were no problems. incision site seems to be healing rapidly - much faster
than I expected. still enough scar tissue beneath the surface that the incision
site on the right (where you operated)
protrudes out more than the left side
where you didn't operate I do feel this scar tissue sometimes when I move or
walk or make contact with that area & the scar tissue is hard enough that it
resists deflection when I push it with my finger there does not seem to be any
sign of inflammation so your decision not to administer oral antibiotics seems
to be right on track I'm glad it worked out that way in the USA, I didn't
realize that you were also going to Japan
I'm glad that I made the extra
effort to travel half way around the world and I'm grateful that you performed
this procedure sincerely

"Dear Prof. Dr. Desarda,
I want thank you from bottom
of my heart for sharing your knowledge and wonderful technique with the rest of
I live in California and was faced
with surgery for inguinal hernia. Being concerned with the complications
associated with the use of mesh, I was looking for a mesh-free operation. After
much research and prayer I came across your tension-free. mesh-free,
recurrence-free technique and learned about the great results your patients
experienced with the Desarda repair. I decided this was the best option for me.
However, due to the pain and discomfort associated with my hernia, I was not
able to travel to India.
Since you have so generously
shared your knowledge in many articles and videos, it was possible for a very
caring and competent surgeon in Fresno, California, to repair my hernia with your
technique. Like most of your patients, I experienced very little post-operative
pain, in fact, I required no pain medications at all, and began walking shortly
after surgery, followed by quick recovery. The complete account of my experience
can be read at www.rapidrecovery.net.
Again, thank you for your
generosity and compassion, and may God bless you and your family for all the
good work that you do.”
