Hello doctor, I have done an MRI in my right leg after an injury. MRI RESULT: #Partial ACL tear, #Minimal hoffa's fat pad edema, #Minimal joint effusion, #Bone confusion noted in lateral tibial and medical aspect of femoral and tibial condyle. Doctor, I want to know what happened to my knee in specific. Is this a serious injury? What kind of surgery should I expect? My doctor has hinted me about joint replacement surgery. Is this right. How much it costs? Could I return to all my athletic activities aftermath the surgery? I need information about these things. Help me. Thank you.

Almost an year back i felt a twist in in my knee while playing cricket and have consulted a doctor who exmanined and said no problem. Over the time the pain has gone and i could do all my routines as regularly except that i cant run as fast as i used to (It pains if i tried running faster.) Recently during a visit to some factory i have jumped from a wall of about 5 feet and felt the same pain. This time the doctor have asked for an MRI and it says (1)MINIMAL EFFUSION INVOLVING THE JOIN CAVITY AND SUPRATELLAR RECESS. (2) ANTERIOR CRUTIATE LIGAMENT AT THE FEMORAL ATTACHMENT SHOW HIGH GRADE TEAR WITH SECONDARY BUCKLING OF POSTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT AND ANTERIOR TIBIAL TRANSLATION. 3)POSTERIOR HORN OF MEDIAL MENISCUS SHOWS GRADE III TEAR. Please gide me with the possible treatment. Do i have to undergo surgery and how long will be the healing process after surgery. What are the chances of getting to pre injury state after surgery. Thank you for your time and suggestion. Charan.

Dr. Sushal has treated my shoulder dislocation with a procedure called arthroscopic bankart repair. I had dislocated my shoulder twice and was concerned if this would turn into recurring dislocation. I Dr. Sushal has treated my shoulder dislocation with a procedure called arthroscopic bankart repair. I had dislocated my shoulder twice and was concerned if this would turn into recurring dislocation. I had consulted multiple orthopedic doctors, but didn't get a clear picture of neither the problem nor the solution.
Dr. Sushal is a very honest and straight forward man and having specialized in shoulder, he could give me a very clear picture of where I stand and what my options are. That I think is as important as the surgery itself with so much information one perceives now a days. Coming to the surgery, I was just admitted for < 2 days and it was as smooth as it can get. It has been two months since my surgery and I can't be happier with the result. For any shoulder related / orthopedic problems, I would recommend him as the go-to doctor for all of you.

He was a really nice person and that made it all the more easier to go ahead with the surgery. It was a keyhole surgery and Dr. Sushal did a good job at keeping me and my family members calm before, during and after the surgery. He was always available on his cellphone and never hesitated to help. Even several months after the surgery, he'd remember exactly what he did with enough detail to be able to tell my physiotherapist how to proceed with the recovery exercises. He always displayed thorough knowledge in the subject matter and put it across in a very easily understandable manner, which gave us all a sense of comfort.
Overall, a really good doctor and an even better person, would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a good orthopedic surgeon.
