I went to Ramakrishna Hospital when I started experiencing symptoms of being unable to urinate. The doctors were able to identify the bladder cancer early after I started experiencing some worrisome symptoms after a couple of weeks after the first consultation here. The cancer did not spread and with the partial removal of the affected tissue and bladder through surgery, I have no worries about a complete recovery in the near future. This hospital's doctors and staff are highly experienced and very caring, a big thanks to them!
