What patients say about Gunaratnam Shyamalan (Shyam)

I had carpal tunnel surgery and it was a fantastic experience from start to finish. The surgery was fast. Really friendly staff and surgeon. Healed very well. With minimal pain. A completely different experience to the right hand that I had done previously (different place)
