"Very useful course with a large number of lap hernias posted over 4 days, giving the participants ample opportunity to appreciate all fine details of different types of lap hernia ( TAPP & TBP) operations.

Being able to scrub up and assist Dr.Padmakumar gave a unique opportunity to be able to perform steps of the operation thereby giving a feel of during the procedure.

Dr.Padmakumar’s constant explanation while doing the procedure reinforces the steps in our minds. I felt no hesitation to able him questions at any point and he never made we feel that any questions was too simple or silly.

The entire team had planned the 4 days very well and co-ordinated between the two hospitals smoothly. Ms.Premna Subin managed the correspondence accommodation arrangements and logistics very cheerfully and efficiently. Overall this course has given me the confidence to be able to attempt lap hernia surgery on my own.

I shall be grateful to the entire team at Sunrise and in particular to Dr.Padmakumar , Dr.Pai & Dr.Farish for their efforts."


"It was a very pleasant experience to see a wide range of TEPP & TAPP procedures over a span of 4 days. I’m really grateful to Dr.Padmakumar & team for practically holding my hands & do. It will be a very useful program for youngsters in particular wanting to learn lap hernia procedure."


"It was a very enlightening experience as i was appreciating the love for laparoscopic surgical procedures. Before i was some restriction in my mind about the advanced laparoscopic procedures but these days out here at sunrise hospital made me overcome these restriction and yes come to a decision that laparoscopic procedures are more better than open procedures.

For this I will thank Dr. Padmakumar and his team for specially Dr. M. Pai and Dr. Farish for nicely looking after the trainees well and overcoming their difficulties.

I would again thank Dr. Padmakumar for doing a great job in terms of training the surgeons and energing their confidence.


"I need to thank Dr.Padmakumar sir for organizing a wonderful Hernia training which no other hospital offer on a large scale basis.

Every step in surgery is taught with perfection and a valuable guidance is given during hands on surgery.

What I would have taken to achieve in 1-2 years was achieved in 4 days time with Complete satisfaction.

I wish Dr.Padmakumar & team for all the support and motivation given. And I would surely come back again for further training programme


Dear Dr. Padmakumar, Dr. Madhukara Pai, Dr. Mabel,

I learned about this hands-on training workshop from my colleague. I had a very good learning experience for 4 days with one-on, hands on experience with Dr. Padmakumar. Having attended many hernia workshops in the past, I never understood the technical aspects of surgery so well. I am confident about starting TAPP/TEP independently.

Thank you so much for the training. I would definitely recommend this course to my colleagues and juniors in my institution if they can afford to pay this kind of fees. I personally felt it was worth the money.

Thanks a lot

- Dr. Devikumar

I would like to thank you both from the bottom of my heart.

Starting from day 1 to day 4, we never felt we were away from family. Time flied. I learned so much that we could carry on in our carrier. We will try to follow your surgical techniques to achieve great heights.

Thanks for giving me this opportunity to write a feedback on the laparoscopic surgery training.

First of all, I would like to congratulate Dr. Padmakumar and his team that have put up such an unparalleled hands-on clinical training in laparoscopic surgery. With no doubt in my mind, this is definitely the apex centre for surgeons who want to have a truly hands-on training in laparoscopic surgery. During my tenure here, I was given ample hands-on training chances in OT under the expert supervision of Dr. Padmakumar who is an eminent bariatric surgeon and also one of the pioneers in laparoscopic hernia and endoscopic thyroidectomy in India. With his forever untiring efforts and patients, I was given plenty of opportunities in learning and acquiring advanced laparoscopic skils and techniques. I was exposed to the full spectrum of laparoscopic surgery during my stay here. The knowledge and skills which I have acquired here will surely help me tremendously in my future practice. I have not only managed to gain in term of technical skills but also found everlasting friendship here at Sunrise Hospital. I will definitely recommend this excellent quality training program in laparoscopic surgery to any surgeons who want to learn various aspects of laparoscopic surgery.

Congratulation and well done once again!
