Five months back I visited Dr. Girish Bapat for laparoscopic surgery of hiatus hernia repair. I was referred by Dr. Parimal Lawate for surgery. After visiting many other renowned gastroenterologist doctors in Pune thankfully I landed in safe hands. Dr. Girish Bapat is very disciplined, ************* and a humble human being. He listens to our problems carefully and gives sufficient time to his patients. Although he explains the medical condition and the how the surgical procedure is to be performed in detail, he has also made all his efforts to explain this through his website *********************** in English and Marathi. His approach is very friendly which eases out fear and nervousness.
He performed Nissen Fundoplication surgery on me. The overall event of surgery was very smooth. Post surgery I was given diet instructions by Dr. Suchit Kamlapur (Dietician). She herself regularly took follow up on phone which was highly appreciated. She was just a call away for every smallest query.
Since last 5 months of the surgery I didn’t had any single issue. Thank you Dr. Girish Bapat and his team !!
Very Highly recommended doctor !!
I was introduced to Dr.Girish Bapat by my childhood friend Dr. Nitin Gadgil. Apprehensive as I was before meeting him and deciding about the Fissure/Fistula surgery, upon meeting him I felt assured that I am at the right place and in safe hands.
Dr. Bapat is a very methodical person, warm and friendly and an absolute professional. He is a perfectionist and would look into the smallest detail before the surgery. He would suggest only those tests which are necessary, important and beneficial for the Patient before the Surgery. With his wide International experience, his dedication and sincerity, I would say he is a world class surgeon available in Pune, India. We are lucky that he chose to come back to India and offer his services here.
Dr. Bapat is brilliant in his approach and would explain the details of the illness in a language which can be understood easily. You can easily make out from his explanations that how deeply he understands the subject and how carefully he is planning the corrective surgery. This friendly approach eases out the patients fear and nervousness.
I must appreciate one more quality of Dr. Bapat, he is very punctual may it be meeting him in his Clinic or in the Hospital or his visits for the rounds post surgery.
Thanks Dr. Bapat, and wishing you all the very best for your future endeavors and may you touch the heights that you deserve.

"A Big Thanks to Dr Girish Bapat for being one such wonderful doctor and a great human being".
My wife had been experiencing severe pain in her upper right abdomen since 10th of June, Initially we thought it was something like hyper acidity which used to subside with General medicines like Aciloc & Eno. But later this pain started intensifying and our family Physician advised USG. The Diagnosis was shocking as it said there are 8 – 10 Gallstones in her residual Gall Bladder (She had undergone Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy at the age of 13 in Bihar when the doctor had told the family that the Gallbladder had been successfully removed) .This led us to into a dilemma.
We found Dr. Girish Bapat through these reviews and met him first at CALOMS (Nal Stop Clinic) , where he advised a CT Scan where it was diagnosed that there are gallstones along with stones in the bile duct, which made the entire process more complicated.
Dr. Bapat then suggested a two-step procedure – An Endoscopy (ERCP) followed by Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy and gave us complete assurance. We found him to be very approachable , caring, available 24x7 and gave a lot of time and effort to address all of our doubts and fears and clearly listing out Do’s and Don’ts, unlike many who would leave question marks in the minds of the patients.
ERCP was performed at Deenanath Mangeshkar hospital on 17th June as set out by Dr. Bapat and providing a more than sufficient time for her to recover from this, Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy was performed on the 27th June at Jehangir Hospital. My Wife was able to walk on her own by the end of next day and discharged a day later. She is recovering fast and requires no help to carry on her routine activities, although with some post-surgery pain. This would not have been possible without the pre and post-operative care, Motivation and a great effort.
Neha & I would like to thank Dr. Bapat for the bottom of our heart for providing such a hospitable treatment and would strongly recommend him for Gallstones.
We visited Jehangir Hospital, Pune in the month of August, 2017 with a view to routine checkup of my wife in the chamber of Dr. Godbole. Now the attending Doctor advised us to go for detailed investigation of my wife. As per his advice, all the blood tests and other investigations were carried out in the same hospital and after a few days, we again visited with all the test/investigation reports directly to Dr. Godbole. The Doctor is extremely polite and after patient hearing and going through all the reports, he advised us to contact with Dr. Girish Bapat, the Bariatric Surgeon. Instantly, we got in touch with Dr. Bapat and after going through all the reports, he advised us for bariatric surgery of my wife under his supervision. Initially, we were not so confident as to whether all the disease syndromes will be minimized in the post surgery period or not. Then we requested Dr. Bapat to provide us the name and cell number of some of his existing patients to get their confirmation for matching the doctor's version and the practical experience of the already treated patients. Truly, all of them highly praised Dr. Bapat for his behavior, commitment, his expertise and post operational service to the treated patients. Then we again visited his chamber and got his appointment for surgery. Basically, within a very short period, we were totally convinced rather he was able to convinced us with his simplicity, behavior and sincerity. Finally on 19th September he operated upon very successfully and within a or two, as per his commitment, my wife was able to walk and within four days she was released from Jehangir Hospital, Pune. On the day of operation(19.09.2017) the body weight was 97.4 kg and as on today(11.1.2017), her body weight is 86.5 kg. There is sharp decline of body weight nearly 11 kg. Moreover, the Blood sugar level comes to normal and pain due to slip disk reduced considerably. At the same time, she is now able to walk/ movement in the upstairs without any difficulty. I always recommend those patients who are suffering from various disease syndrom and passing painful and stressful life and frustrated with their own body weight, please contact Dr. Girish Bapat. He will certainly help you and they will be able to get rid of pain and Obesity related Co-Morbidities: NIDDM, Hypertension, Dyslipidemia, OSA, Slip Disc, Hypothyroidism and Fatty Liver, which are serious life threatening complications and affect the quality of life of the patient adversely. He has all the qualities of a real doctor. Lastly I again salute Dr. Godbole for referring( my wife) to Dr. Bapat for his specialized treatment. Hats of to Dr. Godbole and Dr. Bapat.
I had gallstones. I knew I have to undergo a surgery to get rid of them. As I am not native of Pune or Maharashtra I dint know which surgeon to go to.
I did my search on Internet. I was looking for a Doctor who specialises in this kinda surgery and has considerable amount of experience.
In hardly anytime I made my mind to go with Dr Bapat. His reviews were so many in number and all were positive. That gave me full confidence in my decision to go with him even before meeting with him.
He did my surgery of removing gallbladder. Everything went so smooth. I recovered back to normal day to day life in a very less time.
I am so glad on the choice I made. Thanks to reviews on Internet, they really helped me meet such a ********** highly experienced and humble doctor !!!
One more thing I would like to highlight. The doctor is very approachable. He really gives importance to a patients call, be it odd hours.
I highly recommend Dr Girish Bapat to help people like me to make a good choice.
In July'19, I had one bad evening with severe pain in my right abdomen and full back. I have visited the doctor nearby and he sent me for USG. I had gallstones in the report. I have decided to seek as many opinions as I can and after taking consultations from all top gastroenterologists in Pune, I have finalized to go with Dr. Girish Bapat to remove my gallbladder. Its been 3 months I got mine removed and I feel much better now and I don't seem to have any ill effects from the surgery. In 10 days after operation I was back to my daily routine. My personal advice to all people with gallstones, there are loads of misinformation on YouTube and Internet. So just take care of yourself and listen to what the doctor says. Dr. Girish Bapat is very friendly and always a call away for your doubts. I would highly recommend Dr. Girish for the one who is looking for Gallbladder removal surgery.
I was suffering through severe chest pain every once in a while. I couldn't figure out it was goll stones. I thought I was allergic to egg or bakery and paneer and so on. But on 17.3.16 evening when the pain wouldn't subside even after taking gelusil N pan 40 I was admitted in the hospital where the doctors said its goll stones and it must be removed immediately.
I took too long to go to the doc and had contracted pancreatis and jondis in my liver. The pancrease is still inflated and hurts sometimes. As I took very long to understand what my problem was. My stones had got down to the liver and pancreas causing all the problem.
Goll stones 1s developed the goll bladder is of no use to the body and can cause serious trouble to anyone specially for women who are pregnant.
So if you know you have goll stones get it removed immediately. Do not wait for future pain as it is really bad. Almost like a heart attack. The pain starts from the chest, goes to the back, the shoulders and the hands and can last upto 10 or more hours.
Thanks to Dr. Bapat to help me get through this trouble and pain.

I was detected gall bladder stone & was advised for a surgery at the earliest. I had done a good amount of home work on the net looking for best surgeons in Pune & reviewing the feedbacks about them. Finally I decided to go with Dr Girish Bapat. I am happy that my decision was correct from all aspects.
Dr Bapat performed Laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery on me on 6th Jan 2018 at Jehangir Hospital. I was discharged on 7th Jan & am recovering well. I would like to express my THANKFULNESS to Dr Bapat for his excellent support & services for my gall stone episode.
Dr Bapat is a nice person, **** ************* ** *** ******* ****** **** **** **** *********** He was approachable on his mobile when even I had the urgency to discuss any thing related to my surgery with him. He understands the phycology of patients very well & handles them carefully to their satisfaction & confidence by offering a patient listening & explaining them each & everything related to the subject.
I wish Dr Bapat all the very best in his career & his services to the society.
I was diagnosed with Inguinal Hernia and my family doctor advised me to get it fixed at the earliest. He also suggested me to meet a surgeon based in Pune city. I discussed this in my family and my son who is based in Bangalore suggested me to meet Dr Girish Bapat at his clinic at Nal stop. My son had found out Dr Bapat through Practo and google search and was satisfied with the reviews. I met Dr Bapat at his clinic on 24th Nov as per the appointment and he explained to me in detail about the problem and the laparoscopy procedure including the cost etc. He advised me to get certain tests done before the operation. I was admitted in Jehangir Hospital on 28th Nov and the laproscopy surgery was done on 29th Nov and got discharged on 30th. I was also allowed to go to office after 3 days.
A follow-up visit was undertaken after 10 days as advised by the Doctor and he instilled confidence in me and explained the care to be taken. During this entire process we found Dr Bapat to be extremely patient friendly, highly professional and compassionate. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Girish Bapat to my relatives and friends. I wish to express my sincere thanks to Dr Girish Bapat and wish him all success.
