I am satisfied with the treatment given. I was able to recover later. I have already recommended doctor to my family or friends. I am fine now. Waiting time is manageable.
Experience was good. I will recommend the doctor to my family and friends. He is good, he is nice and strong. He listens to all the problems of patients. For the hospital I would like to suggest, the nursing is very poor actually I was admitted for dengue for 3 days at that time the nursing was very poor. I met Dr. Hemachand Balla only once for my 2 years kid, whatever the suggestion he gave it was fine, it helped him a lot with the medicines he gave. He understands the patient's conditions and patient's pain and gives the right recommendation.
We had been to hospital as my wife had health issue - Ortho related. Doctor was good . Medicines was prescribed and X ray was done. I am satisfied with the treatment given. I can recommend doctor to my family or friends. She is using medicines. Waiting time was there based on number digit format in hospital. It will take 15 minutes waiting time. She was facing issue unable to get up. Need to go again to hospital.

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.
