Dr Shobhit treated my PIVD / Canal Stenosis in a highly professional manner. His conservative management of any case speaks very high of his professional confidence and acumen. I underwent endoscopic discectomy under his supervision. Post operative treatment has been extremely satisfying . He is very receptive to a patients need and expectation and very adaptive in giving primacy to the patients requirement. His interactive sessions with the patient is laudable. He explained and clarified complicated medical case in a very simple and lucid manner easily understandable by common people. He is compassionate and has a big heart in dealing with patients. I wish him greater success in his profession and may he continues to remain the way he his - supportive and passionate.
I had unbearable pain in the upper back and Dr. Shobhit's diagnosis was spot on, didn't took him much time to identify the problem and he explained it well to me. It was some kind of neuromuscular pain and my pain was relieved after having a couple of dosage of medicine prescribed by doctor.
Very specific in explaining the nuances and gave me enough freedom to explore his outcome with other doctors. That made me go back to him for my surgery.
He is briefing me very well about my problem and clear my all doubts and questions regarding my issue I’m very much happy with his consultancy.. thx

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.

After physical examination, the orthopaedist may ask for imaging tests for confirming the extent of damage and then treat accordingly.
