    • I run a textile business where my presence is crucial. When I was diagnosed for uterine fibroids, I thought the treatment would put me to bed for a few weeks. Thanks to Dr. Mathew and the Interventional Radiology techniques, I was back on my feet on the third day, to my business as usual.

    • I had an unbearable headache and was taken to the hospital. Further investigations revealed a blood clot in the brain secondary to a ruptured AVM. My family was dependent on me, getting back to work was crucial. At KMCH Dr. Cherian and his team blocked the abnormal blood vessel without opening my brain. I was soon back to normal. The meter in my auto is running again, quicker than I thought.

    • One day strangely I felt a kind of heaviness in my bowels. I had blood pouring when I went to the toilet. Over the next few hours, I started losing huge amounts of blood every time I emptied my bowels. I was nearing death. A timely procedure done by Dr. Mathew saved my life. I imagine an open surgery would have kept me for weeks in bed not to mention the other discomforts. I was back attending my patients on the third day.
