This is the largest of its kind in India, and concentrates mainly on limb salvage. Cases managed include extensive necrotizing fasciitis, plantar-space infections, diabetic gangrene of the lower limb and osteomylites, and severely destroyed foot and ankle Charcot. This is the only center in India where foot and ankle reconstructive surgeries are being performed routinely in large numbers, in high-risk Diabetic patients. He has devised a novel technique of foot and ankle stabilization, ‘The Amrita Sling Technique.’ He has also devised techniques of using Polymethyl methacrylate, to replace severely destroyed Charcot foot bones. These manuscripts have been published in international medical journals, and the surgical videos have been uploaded in the You Tube. He has also developed a new polymer based footwear for diabetic patients, which has been ‘patented’. In January 2010, he was conferred with the prestigious Dr.S.C.Misra medical oration award. He is the principal investigator in a number of major research programmes. Most notable among these is the new invention of an entire foot bones replacement prosthesis. This again has been provisionally patented. By comprehensive management, the center has been able to maintain a limb salvage rate of 91.5%, in diabetic foot and lower-limb problems, comparable to the best centers in the world. He has over 200 research papers published in national and international journals. He has hands on experience of working in eminent diabetic foot centers in the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

Global Peace and Harmony Can be a Reality
Our goal should be to love and serve the world unconditionally, because that is the highest path. When there is pure love in our heart, there is no separateness. We are all searching for this love, and the most wonderful thing is that it is within each and every one of us, no exception, just waiting for it to manifest. We just have to permit it. This is the ultimate fulfillment. It is not very difficult; if we truly want this to happen. When the catalyst of love fills our heart, it overflows in the form of compassion. Instead of focusing on receiving, we should strive to give love and compassion to others whenever we can. Thus we become evolved human beings. Each and every one of us; again no exceptions; have this love and compassion within us. For most of us, we keep it locked within. We just have to change our attitude and allow this love and compassion to manifest. Each and every one of us; once again–no exception–is not like a candle that needs to be lit, but are like the self-luminous sun, bright and glorious. We must have deep faith in this absolute fact. This is the way to Global peace and harmony. This surely will happen if each and every one of the approximately seven billion human beings inhabiting this beautiful planet, our Mother Earth, truly wants this to happen. Each one of us can live in the world in which ever capacity or profession he or she is in. The education should start in schools. Children can easily comprehend this ideal and live it. Constant meditation on this truth will change us for the better, and we will evolve each and every one of us. Global peace and harmony then definitely would become a reality.
CURING HIGHLY CHALLENGING AILMENTS
There is a natural healing force within all of us. It is a powerful weapon against disease. Our body is a miracle of nature and has an extraordinary talent to heal itself.
Nearly all physical and mental conditions can be predominantly treated by “Mind-Energy’ but may not be suitable for everyone. Some people are more receptive than others to this treatment, due to a number of factors. As such the results of healing can vary. If the patient has faith in the technique and the care-giver, this will of course help immensely. Mind is energy, a very powerful tool, when used correctly, can be focused with great intensity on the diseased organ or area, like a wound in the leg or foot, and help cure the organ ailment and heal the wound.
‘Visualization’ is a powerful mechanism with which, when properly trained, one can focus the mind-energy to the site of the ailment and heal oneself. These things must be dealt with by the person being healed. Care givers can help in imparting this training to the person in need and guiding the patient till complete healing has occurred. Our body has an energy field. Sometimes due to trauma, we experience negative energy, which creates blockages and stops the natural healing ability.
Stress and worry will eventually affect the body. The reason one is sick today is probably due to a build-up of negative emotions. The effects of worry and stress may not show up today, but at some point, they may arrive as an illness.Stress lowers the immune system of the body. Thus the body is not protected against a disease. Once the stressful situation is over, it takes time for the body to switch back on its immune system fully.
Meditation works largely by influencing stress response pathways. People who meditate regularly have lower cortisol levels, and studies have shown that they have changes in their amygdala, a brain area involved in fear and the response to threat.
Physical exercise is very important for the body and mind. Many studies have given a sound insight into the positive effects of physical activity on the physical and mental health of individuals.Studies highlight the importance of patients’ beliefs and emotional responses to their illness as being important in influencing their satisfaction with the consultation, reassurance following conclusive medical testing and health-care management. Recent research shows that the patient’s perceptions to his or her illness will have marked associations with the outcome, especially in chronic illness and will also affect the individual’s behavior in society and quality of life. This is an area which must be addresses with importance, so that in patients’ who have a low feeling of a positive outcome, this mental attitude must be changed so as to heal the disease condition.
Since past many years I and my team, have been deeply involved in this method of management, and helping large number of patients heal the ailments of their body and mind. Of-course, many a time, opinion and management by the specific allopathic consultant doctor, is very much required. This may involve required investigations and medical or surgical management as is deemed necessary. We have thus been able to help heal patients with acute and chronic problems, some of them declared to be incurable. The time taken for treatment would vary from a few days to weeks or months, depending on the disease and many other factors.
It is of-course very important that the patient have an extreme urge to cure his or her disease.
Patients’ should have the willingness and mental ability to understand and be compliant with the management plan so as to affect a faster and complete cure.
We must understand that it is the patient who will cure his or her disease. Inner acceptance of the ailment and the situation, by the patient is very important. Different modalities are involved in the management depending on the disease and other factors. This includes the patient intensely focusing his or her mind-energy on the diseased organ or area and visualization methods to heal the ailment.
Care givers will in detail, explain the specific process to the patient and relatives, and we will guide the patient along the path to a complete recovery.
You may please initially contact me through this website: Of-course, for proper treatment, one to one consultation with the patient and relatives is necessary.
You may also consult me in my department of Podiatric Surgery, AsterMedcity Institute, Kochi, Kerala, India. In such case, it would be good if one of the close relatives could initially consult me with the case documents, and then we can proceed with patient management.
“Love is the basis of the World, the essence of life”.
