I was suffering with recurrent problem of ingrown toenail which was very painful and I was not able to walk.

First time when it had occurred, I went to a local surgeon who advised me to remove the complete toenail. But it  appeared again after a few months. Now, again I went to the same doctor and he advised to get it removed again.

Let me explain that first one was very painful and traumatic for me and the idea of getting it done again just created sense of terror in my mind. But, had to get it removed as that was the only option at that time or till I visited Dr. Kushal Nag.

It is through this website that I learned of him and quickly took his appointment.

When I explained to him about my problem, he patiently explained why earlier treatment did not solve my problem and also in detail he explained what would have been the correct way of the procedure. Then he made us understand what he would be doing so as to permanently cure the problem. It is called the Vandenbos procedure in which all the skin on the edges of the nail would be cut and removed so that the nail would not have enough skin in its direction of growth and simply it wouldn't in grow.

I  was very much frightened to go for the surgery, but Dr. Nag  made me decide to go ahead.

Dr. Nag was equally patient and informative during my hospital admittance and in the operating room.  He gladly addressed any and all concerns. During the operation I did not feel pain any more than just a needle prick and was mostly just talking to him throughout the procedure, and he kept on explaining each step as he was going by and it never felt like I'm getting a surgery done.

Dr. Nag kept a dedicated follow up post surgery and also asked me to send the pictures of the healing toe weelky. I was very grateful and happy that I had taken the best decision and Dr. Nag genuinely looked after me as one would take care of his own brother and family.

I have already recommended him to  few of my family members who have problems.

I want him to know that I'm very much thankful to him and will only trust his opinion if required in future.

I was traveling and having trouble—yet again—with an ingrown toenail. As I wasn’t due to New York City immediately and was tired of foot pain, I found Dr. Nag’s name by googling Podiatry and Orthopedics in Kolkata. Dr. Nag responded to my appointment query right away.  When I saw him in his office he was not only kind and considerate, but he patiently explained why earlier treatments by my podiatrist back home weren’t solving my problem; then he outlined, in understandable detail, the pros and cons of various treatments.  His solution—the Vandenbos procedure whereby all the skin at the edge of the nail be surgically removed—would be a relatively simple, outpatient procedure that would prevent recurrence.

I certainly never imagined having any sort of surgery in Kolkata, but Dr. Nag’s detailed description and evident concern made me decide to go ahead.

Dr. Nag was equally patient and informative during my hospital admittance and in the operating room.  He gladly addressed any and all concerns. As my stay in Kolkata was short, he kindly squeezed in a number of appointments so he could check my progress. I was never in real pain and was mostly just inconvenienced by an initially sizeable bandage and an abbreviated sightseeing itinerary.

I kept in touch with Dr. Nag once I returned home; I sent him weekly photos and descriptions on WhatsApp and he would immediately comment on my progress (who knew that the app would be good for cyberspace medicine).  He was more attentive long distance than some of my New York-based doctors. Eventually he told me to have the toe looked at by a local podiatrist. Which I did (a new one since I realized my previous doctor no longer warranted future visits). His verdict: the healed toe looked just fine and he could see no problems with it in the future.  I couldn’t have asked for a better diagnosis than that. So kudos and thank you Dr. Nag!

Dr. Muna Abdi Aden. Nairobi Kenya

I flew to Kolkata, India to meet Dr. Nag for the first time in January 2016. Dr. Nag was very warm, welcoming and helpful during my stay for both times I had gone to see him. Dr. Nag operated on both my feet which were severely affected by Juvenile Arthritis on two different occasions. He made sure to follow me up on a regular and almost constant basis. He also ensured I was comfortable during my entire stay in the hospital.


I am not only satisfied with the results of my surgeries but I am also extremely grateful he was my foot surgeon as he did a highly commendable job.


Thank you. Dr. Nag

I feel great to write a testimonial for Dr Kushal Nag. I had been suffering from right foot pain since April 2014. I was diagnosed to be suffering from lateral sesamoiditis.


I underwent several blood tests and multiple MRIs to reach to the diagnosis. Me being a doctor, had the opportunity to see couple of orthopedicians of repute. I had even consulted sports medicine specialists! They kept on prescribing pain killers and advised me to wear a soft pad in my shoe while walking. I tried the same for three months with no improvement. I was given a steroid injection without much help either. The doctors were in divided opinion whether to do a surgery or not. They chose to plaster my foot instead before taking me for surgery. That also didn't help. I was about to visit a senior specialist in Mumbai and that is when I met Dr Kushal.


He offered me a special custom made insole for the footwear and explained me the exact reason of my suffering. I was asked not to hyperextend my toe at any cost. This actually worked in a week to my surprise. Its been three months I have been using the insole and following the instruction of Dr Kushal and my pain has been reduced approximately 80%.


What I understand is foot and ankle are specialised areas to look at and Dr Kushal is well trained in it. More so, I am happy that he tries to give the patient a conservative solution than forcing them into unnecessary surgeries.


I wish him and his clinic a grand success. Thanks, Dr Kushal.

Hello... I had contacted Dr. Nag with problems of acute pain in my ankles and feet, extending right upto my knees. The pain was so extreme that it  was difficult for me to walk and this was causing immense problem as I am a practicing advocate in Calcutta high court and need to be constantly on my feet right throughout the day.


Dr Nag diagnosed the problem at the very onset as a severe case of tendinitis and assured me that although the symptoms are excruciatingly painful but it will slowly subside. His diagnosis proved to be absolutely correct and he was able to get me back on my feet  within a short time. I really appreciate his quick hassle free and efficient treatment and his approach towards curing with minimum and effective medication.


Moreover, his affable and friendly nature also help put patients at ease and goes a long way to his/her treatment.

I had a similar injury (lisfranc) a few months back. I faced problems like swelling in upper part of the foot, unable to stand on my toes and severe pain while walking.


Though it wasn't diagnosed at first through the X-Ray reports but on diagnosis my foot was immobilized. Now it has healed completely. It took me 5 months to run again and many many thanks to Dr. Kushal Nag .

I was 35 years old.  I have had an accident in 2014 in my ankle and it needed external fixation.  But due to some reason, the external fixation was not the complete solution for my severe ankle injury.  I developed ankle arthritis and had severe pain on walking.Then after seeing several doctors in Kolkata, I just got depressed.


Then fortunately, I have met with Dr. Kushal Nag in Apollo Gleneagles Hospital.  It is my fortune and my luck that I met with him and he gave me immense support in recovering from that trauma of not being able to walk usually as other people do. In the month of August, I got appointment with him and schedule my surgery for ankle fusion (i.e. ankle arthrodesis) done by him.  He is a very good person both as man and as doctor. He is very up-to-date with the current technology applied in overseas medical field and has a vast knowledge about them.  He is very supportive and helped me boost my confidence to do normal activity as I used to do before my ankle injury.


Now I am completely cured and have done my ADLs (activities of daily living) without any problem at all. Thanks to Dr. Kushal Nag for helping me out from that situation.

My ankle treatment has a long history. I had severe pain in my ankle area and I could not walk properly because of pain. I thought to show it to a local orthopaedic surgeon in Guwahati and after x-ray, the doctor told me that there was black spot in my ankle bone. Being a cancer patient previously and presently out of that dreaded disease, I was completely nervous. Then I went to Medanta, New Delhi to consult a famous orthopaedic surgeon. After thorough investigation, they gave me a verdict that my ankle bone had arthritis and there was no cure for that except future ankle bone fusion. I was completely disappointed and left New Delhi with a heavy heart.


One fine morning, when I was going through daily news paper “The Telegraph”, September 11, 2015, I saw one article “Innocent ankle sprain! Is it a case of fracture” written by Dr. Kushal Nag, Associate Orthopaedic Surgeon and Foot and Ankle Specialist, Apollo Gleneagles Hospital, Kolkata. I was extremely satisfied to read his article and immediately contacted him over phone for an appointment in Kolkata. It was a matter of utter surprise that Dr. Kushal Nag for the first time told us that it was not a case of ankle arthritis and the ankle was quite fine. It was the subtalar joint which was arthritic. He suggested me to go for subtalar joint fusion operation and assured me of complete cure. I followed his suggestion and went through an operation of my subtalar joint in Apollo Gleneagles Hospital, Kolkata. After two and a half months from my surgical operation, today I am completely a different human being who has no pain and can walk like a normal person.


I am a 62 year old lady and have gathered lot experience about medical treatment. From my experience with Dr. Kushal Nag, I wish to say that he is a young, handsome, confident Orthopaedic Surgeon; I have seen a few in my life. He is a man of word, very punctual and extremely dedicated to his profession. He is very non-commercial minded doctor, very rare as on date. I am very grateful to Dr. Kushal Nag for his unparallel medical service to me and my cure. I wish him every success in life.

Krishanu Deb

Krishanu-Deb-flatfoot-treatmentI, Shri Krishnendu Deb, a resident of Shillong, Meghalaya would take immense pleasure to pen down my experience with Apollo Gleneagles Hospital and Dr Kushal Nag, a veteran in the field of medical science. Experts in the field of medical science claimed that my son Krishanu Deb, aged 15 years was born with flat foot. To our unfortunate fate, he had his ankle twisted by the end of 2011 which caused him tremendous pain and swelling. The plight of his injury, however, with the course of time, worsened beyond comprehension. Experienced doctors in town and even beyond recommended a clinical correction. Being a parent, I naturally wanted the best treatment for my son and eventually, I learnt about Dr Kushal Nag, a very renowned and experienced Foot & Ankle Reconstruction surgeon. I would like to declare that in this immense rush of professionalism, it is indeed very difficult to find a doctor like Dr Kushal Nag, who is so devoted to his profession and his amiable disposition is what I appreciated the most and I can, of course, without any hesitation, pick on his name to be the most caring, attentive and co-operative doctor I have ever come in association with, till date. He has all along established a very healthy and friendly relationship with the patient along with his worried relatives. Also, I must acknowledge the fact that he has an impeccable hand at surgery as I can myself gauge the huge improvement in my son, who underwent a surgery by him, on the 16th of March 2016. Coming to the ambience of the hospital, I am convinced that Apollo Gleneagles is one of the finest hospitals of the nation with the latest medical technologies available. On a concluding note, I would again like to declare that I had a very satisfactory experience with Dr Nag and the hospital as a whole.
