My wife had undergone knee replacement 10 years back for both the legs. She is very much comfortable in walking and dont have any issue so far.I consulted the doctor this month for my hip operation. He enquired about my wife's health and advised tips for her wellbeing. Doctor is very friendly and we are very thankful!
My father had a knee pain , so we decided to go for surgery for the two knees, then we come to know the Neelam V Ramana Reddy sir. He was very friendly and well behavioural human. I am writing this review after one year when we left the hospital after the surgery, and now my father is very very happy. Thank you Sir.
Dr kept on prescribing test after test (MRI etc costing 10k) without even telling me the problem. Initially I was told to meet his asst with whom I talked for 15 mins and she did t record anything in case sheet.Dr asked questions **** * ****** and proscribed tests for another 10,000 Rs.As the name suggests Star hospital is a 5star priced with zero star care.
Should focus on one patient at a time instead of jumping between patients and attending phone calls when talking to patient.
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.
