Looking for the best orthopaedic care in Trinidad?
While on vacation in Trinidad & Tobago I was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident that resulted in a fractured spine and nose. After sitting untreated in a different (unnamed) medical institution for 9 days I was transferred to Southern Medical Clinic. The difference in treatment literally brought tears to my eyes. At Southern Medical Clinic; the receptionist are educated and supportive, The porters knew proper techniques when transferring me, the nursing staff are properly trained and professional, the management and doctors always sought feedback, the hospital is clean and comparable to that of a Canadian Institution.
The Doctors are truly amazing and worked so well as a team. They used a multifaceted approach when dealing with my injuries and were effective in their treatment methods. I cannot praise Dr. Indar Jr. enough, he and his team literally saved my life. When I woke up after my spine surgery and he rubbed something on the bottom of my feet I bawled tears of joy; I could feel everything! The days following surgery were difficult and painful, but the staff supported me emotionally and physically to gain my independence back, which resulted in a smooth recovery. The physiotherapist was such an amazing positive soul and he taught me so much and helped me to gain my strength back. My scarring is minimal and my nose looks the same as before the accident.
It really is difficult to put into words how grateful I am to have chosen this institution and this amazing team. Thank you Southern Medical Clinic, you taught me the immeasurable value of medical professionals, nurses and doctors. Dr. Indar Jr., your staff truly embody respect and love. The deepest part of my soul thanks you, I appreciate you all more than I will ever be able to articulate.S.P.
“I came into the Orthopaedic and Spine Institute in July 2016 after suffering with immense pain caused by a herniated disc. Every doctor I’ve been to over the years recommended surgery as the only solution to my problem but I was never comfortable with the idea, however with Dr. Indar he took time to explain what exactly my problems were and why the surgery was necessary, this, along with the professionalism of the administrative staff and the excellent facilities made me feel alot more comfortable with having the microdiscectomy done by this Institute. It has been three months and every medical professional that has seen my back since has commented on how good of a job Dr. Indar did. The recovery process has been seamless thus far and I am extremely satisfied with the service I received.”J. Bobb
Minimal scarring at 2 months post procedure
“I was experiencing severe pains along my left hamstring and lower back for almost a week and was advised to visit Dr. Indar at Southern Medical Clinic. An MRI was subsequently done which revealed a severe slipped disc in my lower spinal column causing said pain. A surgery was suggested as the recommended solution.Having been informed of the need to do the procedure I was both sceptical and worried of the outcome, but Dr.Indar quickly assured me of the minimal risk involved as well as his experience and results with the procedure.
Notwithstanding the first few days the recovery from the operation was relatively simple. The staff of Southern Medical Clinic were also excellent post procedure and I would recommend it if need be.”
