Consulted Dr. Vishal Kundnani (Spine Surgeon)
I recommend the doctor
Happy with: Value for moneyDoctor friendlinessExplanation of the health issueTreatment satisfaction
I had failed treatment for TB of LS Spine for which I was consulting two top doctors in Pune, but after 1 year the infection doubled and I was told surgery is only option now!! All other specialist doctors in Pune echoed same/similar views (except Dr Nadkarni), and thus I took advice Dr Sajan Hegade (top spine surgeon in India, Apollo - Chennai) and he clearly said no need of surgery and only medicines will cure it! For good and quick followup I decided to visit KEM in Mumbai where a family friend Dr Krantikumar Rathod (radiologist at Bombay Hospital) recommended Dr Vishal Kundnani.
Dr Vishal also totally ruled out surgery and only asked a minimal biopsy to be done at priority. The biopsy was performed by Dr Zankaria and sample sent to Hinduja, which detected MDR TB (resistance developed due to prior failed medicines!)
Dr Vishal was very friendly, and provided genuinely helpful and correct advice during my 3 year long treatment by medicine alone. For medicine followup he advised me Dr Amita Nene who is another competent MD and he maintained close followup with minimal MRI scans. At Pune doctors had me unnecessary PET CT scan, frequent MRIs+XRays+Blood tests, but Dr Vishal and Dr Amita had only required tests todo and avoid unnecessary costs incurred!
I am cured after 2 years of treatment and followed up with additional 1year of medicine as a precaution to prevent relapse.
I heartily recommend Dr Vishal Kundnani and all other doctors (Dr Krantikumar Rathod, Dr Amita Nene and Dr Bhaven Zankaria) for their expert advise in Orthopaedics, Spine, Medicine, and Radiology.
