My daughter's finger got fracture. first we taken her to nearby hospital. they told us to go for surgery to correct the 7 yr old kid's finger. but we taken her to Dr Faisal for a second opinion, he gave us an assurance and her finger cured without any surgery. thank you Dr Faisal.
We went in for acl injury.. There was Early diagnosis... And dr gave a clear explanation about the issue with which all other amenities were attached within the clinic.. So that we din have to go out.. Expecting for a speedy recovery
He is very good. He is listening completely what we are telling. No rush up. Clearly explaining the issues.
I had fractured my left little finger, bones were dislocated too. ********* *** **** ************* *** he explained clearly what is the problem and how to get it fixed. I had to undergo a minor surgery, , he fixed my finger without having to cut open it and eliminated lot of complications. I'm glad that he was my surgeon. I absolutely suggest Dr.Faisal for Ortho related problems. - Pandiyan.S
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.
