For second opinion I went to Dr sancheti ( sr.)
The Doctors charges are reasonable. He is very polite and is not after money. My experience in the past is very different with some doctors. Once I had been to a renown doctor for knee pain and the total amount spend on test was approximately 15000 and results at the end were not satisfactory.
I was given his reference by my friend, with lots of confidence. And I am glad to mention that her confidence proved 100% true in my case. I am obliged to Dr.Saraf for making me fit in shortest possible time, with almost balance of between exercises and medicine.
I know Dr. Hrushikesh R.Saraf from mouth publicity. For pains in Joint, Knee problems, he is very much well known Doctor in Pune. On 5th June 2017 i have booked my appointment through PRACTO (thr internet) in a minute. I reached to clinic at 7pm sharp. Dr Hrushikesh sir called me at about 7.15pm, checked me thoroughly, understand my health issue and immediately asked me for X ray in his clinic only. After 15 minutes i have completed all the formalities of X ray and again Doctor called me in his consulting room. Explain me about my illness in a very good manner., which gives me moral. I am fully satisfied with this clinic, a well behaved staff, and Docotr, and a Very good Doctor indeed,. I suggest to all my friends to visit to Dr Hrushikesh sir if you have any joint problem, knee problem or anything related to the same without any doubt in mind.

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.

The mode of treatment depends on the severity of the problem.

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.

Once preliminary investigation is done, the general physician may refer the patient to an orthopaedist for further examination.
