Dr Chirag Thakkar has more than 15 years experience in treatment of GERD and Acid reflux. The centre is having a large experience in manomettry, pH with Impedance study and surgery for GERD and Hiatus hernia. We are happy and proud to have thousands of happy patients.
All the facilities for a thorough evaluation of GERD/Acid reflux and hiatus hernia problems are available at our clinic including endoscopy, esophageal manometry and 24 hr pH with Impedance study. All this is necessary to properly evaluate your problems and take accurate decisions regarding your treatment.
Diet and lifestyle changes are an integral part of the treatment of GERD and Acid reflux. This is true for patients who need medications or surgery. We put a lot of emphasis on this so that we can achieve excellent long term outcomes.
With a milder form of GERD problem treatment with medications along with diet and lifestyle changes would suffice. Decision to treat with medications or surgery is based on the needs of the individual patient.
GERD and acid reflux is very commonly associated with a component of anxiety and psychological disturbances. Especially in patient who are suffering for a long time. Thorough psychological evaluation and modulation with both counselling and medications is a routine part of our treatment.
For those having severe GERD or Acid reflux, those who are suffering for a long time, surgery is a superior option. We routinely do these surgeries with excellent short and long term outcomes.
This is a newer modality of treatment, suited to a well selected group of patients. We offer it to those who are likely to benefit. We do discuss with our patients that being a newer modality, long term outcomes are yet to be seen.
After I was discovered with hiatal hernia, I had consulted several surgeons. Not until I had shared my problem with Mrs. Aruna Chudasama in Mombasa, Kenya, who introduced me to Doctor Chirang Thakkar located in CIMS hospital in Ahmedabad, India. I consulted him about my problem which he had responded to quickly, we then arranged to travel to India on December for the surgery. I will admit, before I had conversed with him I was fearful of having an operation, after we had discussed he answered all of my concerns. He is very and kind and respectful, the surgery was a success, and my recover has been quick and smooth. I applaud your degree of professionalism and wish you a continued success as a doctor. Without hesitation I would recommend you to anyone in need of a surgeon.I would also point out that I am highly impressed with the competence of the staff and the way the carried out their services. They are indeed friendly and courteous. I am back in Kenya recovering well.Joycelene Leah Nyambra Tanzania
I am writing to you on behalf of my mother, who for the last almost 6 years had been suffering from gastro-intestinal issues and indeed Dr. Chirag Thakkar almost saved a lost hope.
While in Tanzania, we met with several doctors to get a solution to her problems, she also traveled to Mumbai one time and Ahmedabad one time (and met with another doctor) and these doctors would just give medicines to her to get her off pains for a few weeks/months and after which, the problem would start all over again.
We met with Dr. Thakkar on a Sunday 20th April, to start the treatment and she was inside the operation theatre on the 23rd April and discharged from the hospital on Saturday 26th April. This one week of her life made great changes to her, morally, physically and mentally. It is for the 1st time in over 2 years that she has continuously been walking through the day and eating well without a slight complain on the pains like she was experiencing before.
Dr. Thakkar is a true hero. He cured a problem that many doctors failed, he is a good listener. He found the cause on the first visit and treated it within a week. My mother is now able to do everything she could before she got sick. He treated her. Pain was her constant companion and she had many limitations to her life style. We will always be grateful to Dr. Thakkar for all that he has done. Thank you for your compassion and understanding. Kind Regards AtikaAtika Mohmed on behalf of her mother Tanzania
I got operated by Dr Chirag for hiatus hernia before 1 year. My half stomach was in my chest because of hiatus hernia. It started with heartburn few years back. I was on medicines since then. Gradually new problems like pain, difficulty in eating and cough started. There was no improvement with medicines. Dr Chirag told all is due to hiatus hernia and will improve with surgery. My surgery was difficult and was done by laparoscopy. Thanks to Dr Chirag for getting me out of this condition. It was really horrible before surgeryJignesh Chauhan Anand
I was suffering from heartburn and acid coming back to my throat since few years. I was taking antacid medicines for years altogether. Initially it worked but then problems remained even after increasing the dosage of medicines. Still most of the doctors advised to continue medicines, diet and some lifestyle modification. Even after doing everything I was having bad days due to heartburn. Finally Dr Chirag advised laparoscopic surgery and assured of good results and he was right. Its one and a half year now and I am doing absolutely fine with no medicines. I still follow diet and lifestyle changes as he has advised. I wish I had undergone the surgery a few years earlier. He is a great doctor, warm and smiling.Dineshbhai Shah Ahmedabad

I was suffering from acid reflux for a long time. I was not getting a genuine opinion and my life was affected very much. Then i searched Dr Chirag Thakkar on net and sent my reports to him. As I am from Bihar he talked to me on phone after seeing my reports and advised pH study. Some came to Ahmedabad and got pH study, after which he advises for laparoscopic acid reflux surgery. I also talked to other patients who got this surgery under Dr Chirag. That decreased my worry. Today I have come for follow up after surgery. Surgery was done 3 days back and now i will travel back home. Surgery was very smooth and i don’t have any problems. He is a great doctor and surgeon and really takes good care of his patients. Thank youBajarangi Kumar

Perfect hospital for digestive surgery. Moreover,doctor is best and has good experience of about 8 years. I have been treated and operated by him for laproscopic surgery for GERD. It was a nice experience with him as a family member more than a patient. I think this may be the best place if you are suffering from any digestive disorders.Patel Krunal
