 I graduated with MBBS (1999) from Kasturba Medical College, Manipal which is one of the premier institutes recognised both nationally and internationally. Upon completion of MBBS, I joined J.S.S Medical College, Mysore, to pursue my passion for orthopaedics and completed my post graduation in Orthopaedic surgery. During this period I developed a keen interest towards spine surgery and decided to complete my spine surgery training in the UK.

 After passing the required exams to practice in UK, I joined Spine surgery department at North Tees University Hospital, Stockton-on-Tees in 2003. I started from the grass root level of senior house officer in the spine department during which time I completed MRCS ( Member of Royal College of Surgeons ) from Edinburgh. After doing the required in hospital rotations in various orthopaedic subspecialties I passed my FRCS ( Trauma & Orthopaedics ) from RCSED ( Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh ). During all my training period, I was part of the Spine Surgery Unit which gave me adequate surgical and academical opportunities to train and learn from the best surgeons. Later on, I completed MCh Orthopedics from James Cook University Hospital at Middlesborough. My MCh thesis was published in Bone and Joint Journal -British edition.

 I was then selected for British Orthopedic Association Senior Spine Surgery fellowship for one year at University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff. This was comprehensive spine surgery fellowship programme in a tertiary Level 1 center. I had the opportunity to refine and learn deformity, degenerative, trauma and tumor management in spine surgery . During this time I was invited for a podium presentation of my work at IMAST meeting at Kuala Lumpur. Next was European Spine journal paper publication on  Sacro-iliac joint fusion for low back pain . I have authored a spine implants chapter in a book ‘Radiology of Orthopaedic Implants’ which was published by Springer.

 After my fellowship ,I was appointed as Consultant Spine Surgeon (L) at Salisbury Hospital, Wiltshire, England. Duke of Cornwall Unit in this hospital is one of the UK Spinal cord injuries refferal center. Then we decided to return to our motherland and I joined Yashoda Super Speciality Hospital ,Somajiguda, Hyderabad  as Consultant Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon in 2016.

 I am an active sports person and cricket is on top of the list. I have represented as captain of my medical college university cricket team during my undergraduate days and played for Durham City and Stokesley cricket clubs in England.

At the age of 25, having such a problem can bring you down. And to be honest I was feeling quite helpless. But the moment I visited Dr. Kiran who was kind enough to listen to my entire story, I immediately felt that this was the right place. Currently I am getting treated under him and so far I am feeling much more confident enough. Regards, Yankee

My brother was suffering from spinal nerve problem recently and legs became weak after that. He was unable to walk properly with the pain. We consulted few doctors in Hyderabad, they said my brother may be paralised soon so we were too much worried. After consulting Dr. Kiran Kumar lingutla he explained the exact problem to us and confidently told us that the patient should undergo a surgery and will be able to make his walk properly within a day time. We gained confidence and trusted the doctor, went for the surgery. My brother was able to walk properly in a day time after the surgery and his life was changed. I here by thank Dr. Karan for the treatment and Yashoda Hospitals management for the Co operation

I was very nervous after injury but Dr Kiran Kumar Lingutla Sir treated me like a brother and given moral support initially . He advised me to go for minimal invasive surgery on I I nov 2019, after surgery immediately next day I can walk easily without any support. Now I can do my work in Melbourne as before.

Abhilash Reddy

I was suffering from dizziness and neck problems for a few months. I have consulted numerous doctors, chiropractors, and Physiotherapists in the U.K. but none were sure about what was going on. I am glad I had an opportunity to meet Dr. Lingutla. His conversation started with reassurance, he patiently listened to my case and answered my questions. I was paranoid about the situation and mostly the experience of having to go for an MRI. He instantly realized I was claustrophobic and arranged for me to see a diagnostics center that has open MRI services in Hyderabad. What took me 3 months back in the UK was diagnosed in 1/2 day in India, and I have a lot to thank Dr. Lingutla for making this happen. He suggested a few lifestyles and dietary changes, which helped me get back to normal. I highly recommend Dr. Lingutla for anyone who is in need.

My mom had back problems. I took her to this clinic. Both the doctor and his assistant were very good. They were respectful and communicated well with both me and my mother. My mom is doing better. She was bent over and now she is standing straight. The doctor saw her to check on her every few days and kept a good eye on her. We were happy with their care.

After surgery, he was able to sit, stand and walk without pain. We are very much happy now. We thank Dr. Kiran lingutla sir.

Vamana Murthy

Lovely Doctor & lucky to meet him. I visited him for my mother's spinal arthritis associated with other complications as well. It's been long I was going everywhere , but haven't got the answer , that what exactly is happening regarding her back. As only repeated MRIs used to be taken and no any findings with respect to the patient's symptoms. Just with every passing day, she was only suffering irrespective of various medicines . It's here with Dr. Kiran Kumar lingutla sir, I got the answers. What & why it's happening & what shall be done, he explained. Feeling now, she is in the right hand and hoping she will recover gradually. Looking forward to meeting him again as suggested after medications. Thanks & Regards

Ritesh Singh

I'm working as a marine design engineer in Singapore. I got a chronic radiating leg pain since 17 Nov 2019. In this time I can't sleep, walk and sit. I saw some doctors in Singapore they suggest surgery they told me it's open surgery and bone cutting. I search in Google and I found Dr Kiran Kumar Lingutla profile and immediately we came to India to meet the doctor. I got admitted to Yashoda Hospital. I came to the hospital by wheelchair and the doctor suggested me minimally invasive spine surgery without any bone cutting and the next day I go for surgery. Surgery was done and I was able to walk normally without pain on the same day just 2 hours after the surgery. I was discharged the very next day of surgery. I'm sincerely thankful to Dr. Kiran Kumar Lingutla sir and team.
