Patient testimonials

Here’s what our patients have to say about our services..

My partner and I visited the Regency City Clinic in Kanpur following several failed fertility treatments at an earlier fertility clinic for high oestrogen levels. The staff members were very professional and empathetic. The preliminary visit resulted in a gynaecological test, that led to the early diagnosis of a mild ovarian dermoid cyst. Following the removal of the cyst, we were successful in our first IVF trial. I have been blessed with a baby boy 2 months ago. Thank you, Regency!

Kanpur

I was very apprehensive about being diagnosed with painful stones in my kidney. I was afraid of undergoing surgery. After, meeting with renal specialists at Regency, I found out that every stone does not require an operation. With modern techniques of ESWL (Lithotripsy) PCNL & URS, which are non-invasive, I finally got rid of the stones for all times.


Rahul Trivedi

I came to Regency Hospital, Kanpur for the treatment of my liver condition. We learned about Regency through friends in my workplace. The team at Regency provided me with top-notch service and personalized attention, much more than I expected. The staff is very helpful and cooperative. I already have and will surely recommend this remarkable health institution to my family and friends in the future.


Udit Kumar

Kanpur

I had terrible pelvic pain from the last 6-7 months, and that’s when I was diagnosed with ovarian cysts. Thinking and reading about the cysts made me horrified, but I wanted to cure myself as soon as possible. My aunt, being a doctor herself, recommended Regency Hospital for the treatment of my cysts, and I went ahead with her opinion. From one month, I have been regular with my periods, I have no pelvic pain and I have gotten rid of the cysts. Thanks, Regency!

Who is a pulmonologist?

A pulmonologist is a doctor with specialized knowledge in the diagnosis and treatment of lung disease. The respiratory system, also known as the pulmonary system, is complex and can be affected by other organs. A pulmonary doctor helps in preventing and treating lung disease and breathing problems.

What are some of the diseases a pulmonologist treats?

Some of the most common ailments diagnosed and treated by pulmonologist are as follows:

  • Pneumonia
  • Asthma
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
How do I know if my lungs are damaged?

Your lungs are the organs that help you in breathing and their health is very important for you to breathe normally. If you are having trouble breathing, coughing, or laughing, it is necessary that you get your lungs and upper respiratory system checked by a pulmonologist near you.

If your lungs are damaged, you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Pain when breathing
  • Wheezing
  • Persistent cough
  • Coughing up blood
  • Chronic chest pain
  • Overproduction of mucus
What precautions should I take to take care of my lungs?

Here are a few tips that you can opt to take care of your lung’s health:

  • Take plenty of fluids
  • Deep breathing exercise
  • Wash hands regularly
  • Breathe through your nose
  • Monitor the local air quality
  • Wear a mask if you have existing lung problems like Asthma
  • Quit smoking
Do lungs heal after smoking?

Within just 8 hours of quitting smoking, your body’s oxygen levels will increase and your lung function will begin to improve. As your lungs begin to heal, you may feel less short of breath, cough less and find it easier to breathe in the coming weeks and months after you quit. Your risk of developing cancer also decreases. No matter if you’re a new smoker or have been smoking for years, it’s never too late to quit. Consult a pulmonologist for more information.

What foods repair lungs?

The best foods to consume for healthy lungs and improved breathing are:

  • Garlic and onions
  • Ginger
  • Pomegranates
  • Turmeric
  • Apples
  • Salmon
  • Nuts
  • Flaxseeds
  • Oranges
  • Dark Leafy Greens
