Patient Testimonials for Dr. Ashwin Kurian
Twenty four years ago I was treated with radiation therapy for advanced throat cancer. While the treatment saved my life, there are many continuing side effects. One of those side effects was GERD with a hiatal hernia. I have suffered with GERD for over seventeen years and it was getting progressively worse. Dr. Kurian surgically solved the problem. The hernia was repaired and other work was done to prevent the acid reflux. I am following the recommended diet. For the first time in years I do not need acid blocking medication, I am able to sleep normally, and the damaged tissues are starting to heal. I highly recommend Dr. Kurian to anyone that is suffering from severe GERD.

"I can't believe I waited so long to do this surgery (Nissen Fundoplication). I noticed an instant improvement in all my symptoms and I am very happy to be off all the antacids. Before surgery I would have reflux into the back of my throat if I bent forward or down. I rarely cough and my voice doesn't get hoarse and I haven't had even one episode of laryngospasm. I don't have any surgical pain at all. I can't believe I put up with all those symptoms before surgery and now they are completely gone. I am a super happy patient!"
"I suffered from Achalasia for many years. I had the POEM procedure by Dr. Kurian and he has changed my life."-G. Carlsen
"When I was diagnosed with Achalasia in 2014 I thought I was going to have to live off protein shakes and liquidized soups for the rest of my life - as that was all I could swallow. Dr. Kurian performed the Per Oral Endoscopic Myotemy (POEM) procedure for me on November 21 2014. 2 weeks later I could eat again! If you have Achalasia I can certainly recommend Dr. Kurian and his team - everyone was so friendly and sympathetic to me and did all that they could to get my procedure scheduled quickly. I hope that, if you do have the POEM procedure, that you will have the same miraculous result that I did and that you will be able to enjoy eating again."
