My mom had been complaining stomach ache just beneath her chest for almost past 4 years. The pain attacks used to be once or twice a year. We did visit a few doctors after each pain attack but no one suggested that it could be because of the gallstones. They used to treat her for gastroenteritis. In June 2020, she again had an unbearable pain and then she got admitted. Upon investigation, they found that she had 3 gallstones of about 7.5 mm each. They suggested her to get operated asap. Since my mom is 69 years old, I was looking for an experienced surgeon. My mom have had 3 stomach surgeries and 1 brain surgery in past. Although, she doesn’t have high BP or diabetes. ** ****** ****** * ***** **** **** *** ****** ***** ** *** **** ******* ********* ** *** ***** We visited him in the last week of July and explained the problem. He advised that the only treatment for gallstone is the removal of gallbladder. He explained us the complete procedure of the laparoscopic surgery and the risk involved because of the age factor. As he do his surgeries in Jehangir hospital, we were a bit reluctant at first as there were Covid 19 patients. But he assured us that Jehangir is the only hospital that has completely separate staff and ward. The very day we decided to go ahead with the surgery after 5 days. All the pre- operation tests results were done and they were normal and so was the surgery. There was no complication during or after surgery. Although because of the stones there was a lot of infection in and around the gall bladder. There was a separate tube inserted to remove the infection which was removed after 24 hours. She was discharged the next day. She was able to do her things on her own with minimal help. After 10 days we went for the follow up and for removal of the dressing. Dr. Bapat said that now she is back to normal and it was unbelievable to see my mom doing and eating everything like before. The best thing was the Doctor didn’t prescribed for any fancy or expensive medicine and no saline was injected. She was only on pain killers.
My wife had severe acid reflux issue for the last 1 year and hyper acidity prior to that for sever years. We saw many well-known doctors in Pune but did not get satisfactory treatment anywhere nor a proper diagnosis. She changed her lifestyle, food habits, was exercising but in vain. We were too frustrated due to improper treatment and increasing issues of acid reflux. One day, as I was again looking for a good Gastroenterologist in Pune, I discovered the website of Caloms and informative videos of Dr. Girish Bapat explaining various ailments and respective treatments offered at Caloms by Dr. Bapat. The explanation given in the videos is so good that we decided to see him immediately.
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. He explains the medical condition and the how the surgical procedure is to be performed in detail. His approach is very friendly which eases out fear and nervousness.
