Smt.Rajani, a 40 year old homemaker in the town of Raichur in North Karnataka, had severe pain in the back for many months. Her pain was shooting from her lower back down to her legs. Luckily, she had a doctor in the family. Her brother-in-law, Dr.Vijay Bhaskar Chilukuri, being a leading physiotherapist, suggested physiotherapy exercises which she could do under his supervision. Yet, her pain did not subside.

After 6 months, Dr.Bhaskar recommended Smt.Rajani to do an MRI of the spine to understand the problem. The MRI revealed a clear slip disc at the L5-S1 region. Being a healthcare professional himself, he knew doctors and surgeons in the big cities. Yet, when his brother’s wife Smt.Rajani had a slipped disc (herniated disc), he was looking for help with finding quality medical providers for her treatment.

While exploring options for her surgery, he contacted my-healthconnect and shared her latest MRI scans. We connected the family to spine specialist Dr.Satyanarayana Murthy. Dr Murthy practices in hospitals in the city of Hyderabad, which is 220 km away from Raichur.
Using the my-healthconnect patient platform, the doctor and patient could interact and Rajani received a treatment plan from her doctor sitting at home in Raichur. She did not need to travel until she got a confirmation on the treatment plan, costs and length of stay required at the hospital. With the stay and expenses planned, they decided to travel from Raichur to Hyderabad for the surgery.
