"The word Cancer is something that sends a chill down your spine. You hear about it everywhere, but when it actually happens to your loved one, your world turns upside down. So did ours when it happened to my father. The GI surgery team led by Dr. Deepak Varma always helped mitigate that feeling with their professionalism and warmth. They successfully carried out a radical gastrectomy on my then 75 year old father, who was diagnosed with stage three Adenocarcinoma of the stomach. At his age this would be something extremely risky and probably not attempted by all doctors. He made sure that we understand every step of the treatment and even briefed us with evidence immediately after the 9 hour long surgery on its success. Dr. Varma's brilliant surgical skills are marvelled by many international doctors as well who have seen the summaries and reports. His way of dealing with a patient and the family is truly exceptional. Even if it's the worst of news, Dr. Varma comes with a smile on his face and tells you not to worry as he will handle it and he certainly does. My father remained calm and positive in this debacle only due to this and we are eternally grateful to Dr. Varma and his team for what he has done for us"
