1 clinic for General Consultation
My mother suffered from severe arthritis 1 year ago. She couldn’t walk at all and restricted herself to bed because of the unbearable pain. We visited some orthopedician but no treatment reduced her pain. Some doctors suggested surgery as well. I then booked an appointment at the orthopaedics department of Mayom Hospital in Gurgaon. I must say we were totally impressed with the infrastructure. The staff at the registration counter was very friendly and helpful too. The doctor carefully listened to my mother’s problems. He diagnosed the swollen joints with advanced X-ray machines, stimulators, etc. and prescribed a treatment. My mother has healed now and she is able to walk. Thanks to Mayom hospital.
Dr Rajesh is a stellar doctor and a fantastic human being. His attitude towards your problems is sympathetic, and yet very objective. He makes you understand exactly why the problem is occurring, how to mitigate it, and how to prevent it from recurring. He does not seem like one of those doctors who are too busy to pay 5 minutes of attention to an ailing patient who has braved pain and injury to get to where the doctor is. His bedside manner is warm, and his smile is infectious. Moreover, he makes you believe that you can, and will get better soon. Thank you very much Dr Rajesh *** ** ********* ********* *** **********

My mom had pain in little finger in her hand due to minor accident. I visited Mayom hospital, just for check-up. Doctor has prescribed x-ray, and at same time he did plaster for 3 weeks. He ignored the finger and did plaster in the rest of hand.
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.
