I underwent Breast Conservation Surgery for my breast cancer. Dr. Amit Parasnis is my treating doctor and I am happy to report that I am disease-free for 3 years now. The cosmetic effect of the surgery is so good that people do not realise that I am a cancer patient unless I tell them. Thank you Dr Parasnis!
My husband underwent surgery for rectal cancer. He had a temporary colostomy which was closed with a second surgery later. Dr. Amit Parasnis was very co-operative and managed my husband's case very well. My husband was able to complete the treatment successfully, even though his age is 75 years.
