Nice experience. Doctor explained the cause and remedial action very well. Treatment suggested is very affordable.
Excellent experienced doctors in all varied specialists are available right from gynaecology to orthopaedic. Thank you for treating ******
I had booked an appointment for 9:30 Am. I am at the Saishree Hospital and am informed Dr Ketan Deshpande doesn't visit the hospital on Saturdays. this is when I had booked the appointment a day prior. highly unprofessional. pls note. I AM In the hospital right now.
I booked an appointment with Dr. ketan Deshpande. Appointment was also booked successfully.. Then at given time when we reached the hospital for appointment he was not available. I don't exactly whose fault it was, was of practo app or doctor.. ( practo app at my end is updated version) but whoever fault it was, it was very disappointing. As all patients won't stay in pune itself, they come from town place after commiting for 2 - 3 hours .
Q: Who is an Orthopaedist?
A: An orthopaedist is a medical doctor who specializes in diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to the skeletal system. An orthopaedic doctor attends to any disorder or condition or injury pertaining to the bones, muscles, joints, and ligaments associated with the skeletal system. These medical professionals treat conditions like arthritis, back pain, sports injuries, and leg and foot pain
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. An orthopaedist is the right medical doctor to consult for sport injuries. After physical examination, the orthopaedist may ask for imaging tests for confirming the extent of damage and then treat accordingly.
