Recently my daughter was found having Osteochondroma. The doctor quickly recognized it and safely removed it by a surgery. He has taken all the precautionary methods and has looked it from all the aspects and has performed the surgery in a very safe way. He is an excellent doctor. He not only helps the patients to get better physically but also supports the patients mentally. he is highly motivating and genuine. He makes his patients feel cared and safe. He and his staff provide an amazing service. They provide great hospitality. The doctor is very jovial and kind.
At first he is an extraordinary human then comes the profession. He listened to me with patience and then went ahead with X-ray and later suggested to go for MRI to get to know what was the problem. He did write a recommendation with concessions note to visit. Now I am looking forward to get it cured sooner by going through a laproscopic surgery ( Key hole Surgery). To sum up what I said he is friendly and experienced in his profession so would highly recommend.
He is explaining the issue very simply everyone can understand and give +be hope which is more needful to the patient...
Even though we were worried about visiting a health clinic during COVID times, upon arrival we were glad to see how well sanitized and safe the clinic was. Doctor was extremely friendly and very patient with his explanation. He was also open to a discussion and questions. Very happy with our appointment.
Q: Who is an Orthopaedist?
A: An orthopaedist is a medical doctor who specializes in diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to the skeletal system. An orthopaedic doctor attends to any disorder or condition or injury pertaining to the bones, muscles, joints, and ligaments associated with the skeletal system. These medical professionals treat conditions like arthritis, back pain, sports injuries, and leg and foot pain
Q: What is the difference between an Orthopaedist and an Orthopaedic surgeon?
A: Orthopaedists are sometimes mistakenly referred to as orthopaedic surgeons. An orthopaedist deals with conditions related to the musculoskeletal system. He provides pre-surgical consultation and post-surgical follow up. An orthopaedic surgeon provides same care as orthopaedist, but performs surgery as well. He performs surgery to cure back pain, ruptured discs, bone tumours, carpal tunnel, arthritis and other injuries.
Q: Does an Orthopaedist treat foot and ankle related problems?
A: Yes, an orthopaedist deals with musculoskeletal problems within the body. Problems related to foot and ankle fall under this category. Common foot problems like bunions, ankle sprains, arthritis, and sports injury are treated by an orthopaedist. Diagnosis of foot and ankle related problems are done through imaging tests. The mode of treatment depends on the severity of the problem.
Q: Does one need a doctor referral to see an Orthopaedist?
A: One can consult an orthopaedist by booking an appointment. Consultation with the orthopaedist is conducted in his/her clinic or at a healthcare centre. In some cases, patients go to a general physician for any condition or disorder related to the musculoskeletal system. Once preliminary investigation is done, the general physician may refer the patient to an orthopaedist for further examination.
Q: Does an Orthopaedist treat sport injuries?
A: Sport injuries are mostly related to the musculoskeletal system. Injuries like ligament tear, sprains, fractures, muscle pull, or bruises are commonly encountered in sports. An orthopaedist is the right medical doctor to consult for sport injuries. After physical examination, the orthopaedist may ask for imaging tests for confirming the extent of damage and then treat accordingly.
