I have visited in 2015 till today and my friends too in different cases and we are all happy for the excellent treatment with very very low cost, you can visit Mohan Krishna Sir, definitely you all feel happy I assure. Very very good kind and awesome doctor..
Very punctual. Very patient. Friendly. Heard the complaints Patiently. Explained the causes. Suggested treatments.
Dr. Mohan Krishna is good with explaining the health issue. Friendly in nature. We would have appreciated if he could take a definitive decision about a permanent solution to our problem. I will give him a benefit of doubt that maybe he wanted to exhaust all the non-surgical treatments before deciding on surgery. The problem for us was that we end up spending too much on consulting another doctor that Dr. Mohan Krishna recommended. That another doctor then recommended us to consult 3 other doctors. That wasted too much of our time and let's not forget that my mom was in a severe pain all this time. I would have appreciated if Dr. Mohan Krishna took the matter in his own hands and made a decision rather than sending us to other doctors who were not helpful to us.
I visited doctor for small fracture in foot.doctor advised simple medications and rest. I recomend for his patient listening and kind to patients.
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.
