Honest, Empathetic and KnowledgeableMy mother was advised to undergo a knee replacement surgery and Dr. Narayan Hulse, a highly respected Orthopedic Surgeon in Bangalore, was recommended by a close family friend.She was skeptical to undergo a surgery initially, but after consulting Dr. Hulse, she was convinced that she'd get the surgery done only by Dr. Hulse, which was a big step to cross.Dr. Hulse understands the patient's pain points well and is very focused and professional in his approach.The knee replacement surgery was successful, all thanks to Dr. Hulse and the post-op care by Dr. Hulse and his team was fab.The entire Ortho department did a wonderful job to ensure she was at ease and timely actions were taken to ensure the recovery was smooth. Dr. Hulse has a heart of gold and is extremely calm, confident and composed.Thank you Dr. Narayan Hulse and the team, Kanchana and Harshita for taking extra care during the entire process and guiding us all through. Thanks again.

For my mother, it felt like a dream come true. As I was typing this review, she was already walking. She had been suffering from knee pain in her left leg for over 11 years, and it had become severely bent. She was afraid and put off the operation until the pain became unbearable.When I was searching for a knee surgeon in Bangalore, 7 out of the 10 people I asked recommended Dr. Narayan. Intrigued, I decided to meet him in person. I quickly understood why so many people spoke so highly of him. He is polite, understands multiple languages, and communicates clearly with his patients. He avoids medical jargon, patiently explaining the procedure and recovery time in simple terms.I would vouch for him any day. After the surgery, he explained what was done and provided thorough instructions on the precautions my mother should take during her recovery. We are forever grateful to him.As for the hospital, Fortis handled everything professionally. The attendants were helpful and responsive, and the insurance personnel even stayed late to resolve our issues. Both Fortis and Dr. Narayan were the best things that could have happened to us.

My mom had knee replacement surgery done by Dr.Narayan Hulse, at Fortis Hospital, Bannerghatta Road.Dr Narayan Hulse is one of the best in the country, I can say his dealing with patient is great as it builds the trust factor between the patient and doctor. We had to go for one knee at a time as my mom is a kidney patient.The doctor & his whole team were just awesome. The support staff including the counsellors, nursing staff, physiotherapist all were so wonderful.It’s so heartening to see mom walking on her own after long long years.All because of great experience @ Fortis Bannerghatta and the trust mom had in Dr.Narayan Hulse she went for the left knee replacement surgery just after 2 months.And this time is also the experience is as great as the first one.

Dr. Narayan Hulse (Robotic Knee Replacement & Hip Replacement Surgeon Bangalore, Orthopedic Joint Replacement Surgeon) -Such a wonderful, caring doctor who is best at what he does! My mother had severe osteoarthritis in both knees and the pain had gotten unbearable. So much so that she couldn’t walk or get up without pain. We opted for knee replacement surgery and surprisingly the recovery was super fast. Dr Hulse sir and his entire team were so caring and looked after my mother very well while at the hospital.. she is recovering well.. Totally recommend the doctor to everyone. 🙏🏻
