Dr Malladi has taken great interest in developing laparoscopic surgery for hernia – which is a common problem. His work has helped many of his patients to return to work earlier, pain-free. Dr Malladi believes that this advantage offers patients to resume work earlier. Hence, his mantra about Laparoscopic Surgery - “Return to Life, Quickly”. is apt for present lifestyle especially in nuclear families.
