I am writing on behalf of my sister Kumud Bhatia, 58 years old & a long time Rheumatoid Arthritis patient.
For almost a decade, Kumud had deformed, painful knee joints & as a result restricted movement. She suffered a fall in September 2019 & required a Total Hip Replacement (THR). The thought of a surgery was terribly scary but we were lucky to have Dr Sanjeev Jain & his team handling it at L H Hiranandani Hospital, Powai. It was most organized, process focused & above all had attention to every little detail.
Besides the complex surgery, Dr Jain handled our fears to ensure Kumud was emotionally strong enough & prepared to deal with the procedure & also the post-operative care required. He did this by keeping communication lines open – clearly explaining the damage, procedure required, post care required, what to expect & above all thoroughly, patiently answering all of our questions. He patiently listened to what we were saying, our concerns & it is a rare quality.
Despite a successful THR, Kumud’s knee joint degeneration & deformity would not allow her to walk comfortably. But she was quite adamant about not doing more corrective surgery. It took several meetings with Dr Jain to give her the confidence to have a Total Knee Replacement (TKR) on both knees & assuage the fears she had on whether she would be able to walk independently. Every time, he took the time to talk to Kumud & clear doubts, repeatedly when necessary, because he genuinely believed a corrective surgery would make her more independent & comfortable. Because of years of pain, Kumud had restricted activity levels & a feeling of hopelessness. He really believed that corrective surgery would allow her to realize her potential so much better – very few medical professionals invest this much time & effort in the emotional wellbeing of their patients.
In Jan 2020, Dr Jain successfully completed TKR on both of Kumud’s knees. It has been 7 months since her 1st surgery. He is as receptive & patient with her questions even now in the follow up appointments & gives her the time she needs to discuss her recovery in detail.
Over & above his professional skills, Dr Jain exudes empathy & positivity. We cannot thank him enough for the interest he took in Kumud’s case, the care he gave & his honest, open communication. When a patient & her family don’t have to worry, they focus better on recovery. Dr Jain works very hard to ensure that the entire treatment & procedure is stress free.
