Ramani with over 18 years of experience heading the Paediatric Orthopaedic division at BMH Kannur caring for children with a range of orthopedic needs. He is ably assisted by Dr. Jayesh Neerngat who has been trained in Orthopedics under Prof. NJ. Mani at Baby Memorial Hospital, Kozhikode.

With expertise and dedicated multiple fellowship training in India and abroad
in pediatric sports injuries, arthroscopy, pediatric limb deformity correction,
limb lengthening, and scoliosis surgery, Dr. Easwar T.R is committed to
ensuring the health and well-being of your child. He combines expertise and
compassion to provide the best possible state of the art care for young
patients for a variety of diseases.
