I visited Ashwini Hospital multiple times and everytime I have got similar better treatment. Dr Kadam ** **** **** *** gave proper attention to patients. He is properly listening to patients and gives proper advise. I will definitely recommend Dr Kadam to others without any hesitation.
We visited for my Mother's heel pain that she was suffering since 2 months. Doctor was very friendly and given enough time to discuss the symptoms, cause of the issue and identified the root cause.
3 years since it all started. I've been to almost every kind of doctor i could go to consult my back pain. Acupuncture, physiotherapy, electric treatment and what not. Did all of it, still the relief which i got lasted only for few days/weeks. And now when the pain was on the urge of breaking me down, i decided to give the treatment a fresh start. I found Dr kadam, booked an appointment, got the prescription, started the medicines and the results started to show too. A big thanks from the bottom of my heart to you sir.
I visited the doctor purely on Practo reviews to consult my mother’s knee pain issue. My mother seek experienced doctor always and i found the doctor well experianced that will be psychologically benefecial to my mother.

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.
