I injured my wrist playing football and the pain was so much so I was very sure that I had messed up my wrist. I went to ortho clinic near my house and saw an orthopedician who adviced an X-ray.
The X-ray gave me a shocker. It actually had two fractures out of which one fracture was definitely an old fracture. So I got a CT & MRI also done, and the findings were Fresh fracture of the lunate and Old fracture of the Scaphoid.
I went back to my Orthopediacian and I was told that the scaphoid has gap broken and since it was a old fracture it has gone in Avascular Necrosis so it is non salvageable. He would put me in a POP for the fresh fracture for 2 weeks and old fracture is anyway too late I was told I have to live with it at the price of developing Arthrisis in the wrist when I get old which would reduce my wrist motion considerably.
I’m 28, active in sports and this was real bad news. I took lot of opinions and almost everyone came up with the same thing. I was fortunate to know top radiologist in the city through my profession and I was referred to Dr.Sunil Gavaskar. Like most one would have reacted what a Name! 😬
I went to meet Dr.Sunil and breifed him the whole episode. He delivered the first piece of good news I had been hoping for. He said he can fix this and he even explained the surgical intrecacies.
The procedure he had planned for my Scaphoid Non Union was to use a Headless Screw and achieve union. He had also informed that on the surgical table he might opt for a graft also depending on the condition of my bone when he sees it cut open. I was little worried but if I wouldn’t trust him who else would I ? So I left it to him.
During the surgery it turned out that my joint was actually more complicated that we had anticipated. So he had taken a graft from the hip bone to unite my Scaphoid with a headless screw. I was put on POP time of 4 weeks but during subsequent review he convinced me and extended my POP time by another 2 weeks. I was a bit low at that time since I had my birthday and going around with a POP isn’t really exciting. But nevertheless, I am much happier now because my Scaphoid had completely reunited without any major restriction in movement.
Would recommend Dr.Sunil absolutely!
The first and foremost thing is he explains about the health issue we are undergoing before treating us, which give a better understanding. Also this is not my first visit. I was asked to do a arthroscopic surgery for my knees but when I consulted him, he said it isnt necessary and I am totally fine and am doing grt since 4 yrs without the surgery. Very satisfied. Thanks
very friendly and he tells exact soluion for the problm which we are facing and he is good for everyone
Dr sunil is very professional *** ************** I find him very genuine as he doesn’t prescribe medications or treatment unnecessarily.
My mil under went her knee replacement with him. She was very comfortable with him. She has consulted several dr for her condition in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. She was very unsatisfied with other Treatments
Where as Dr sunil spent ample amount of time explaining the patient about her condition in a way she understood. Me and family are very happy with the treatment and highly recommend him.

Consulted for my son ankle pain issue. He explained the problem and remedial measures to avoid recurring.
My mom was suffering from knee pain for past 6 years. After consulting many doctors we felt that it is only getting worse and no proper guidance. At last I came to know about Doctor Ashok Through my cousin who did MTech in Global hospital. After meeting doctor Ashok I felt that my mom is in the right hands. He is an extraordinary person unlike other doctors we had met he will clearly explain you what is your problem, what is the solution and how we are going to do it. Even a small kid can understand the problem.
Thank you so much for everything Doctor I always think when my mom will walk normally like before. You gave us the confident and encouragement to bring this dream true by performing this wonderful knee replacement surgery.
Doesn’t alarm the patient. He will put you at ease and patiently hear you and explain you the problem or treatment steps. Very young but approaches like a seasoned veteran. We definitely need doctors like him in more numbers with a knack to diagnose problems. and treat us...... I had visited couple of times for a shoulder problem and once for neck pain....
I was suggested surgery for a wrist fracture. This is when I visited Dr. Ashok Gavaskar. He very patiently explained to me the positives and negatives of both options, with and without a surgery and answered all my queries. I decided to not get the fracture, and my wrist now has healed completely! I have movement as good as my doctor explained to me. Was really comfortable and he helped me make the best decision for me.
Dr. Gavaskar is very thorough, puts in a lot of time to explain the ailment and optional treatments in detail. He follows very ethical standards of practice, and will not advise tests unless absolutely necessary. I find that he is excellent when it comes to clinical diagnosis of an ailment. *** *** *** ********* *** **** **** ** **** *****
