4 clinics for General Consultation
I had been to meet the doctor as I had Back pain. ********* *** ***** Medicines were prescribed and an MRI scan was done. Physiotherapy was suggested. Waiting time was there in the hospital. Now back pain is less. I am satisfied with the treatment given. I can recommend doctor to my family or friends.
I visited the doctor as I was having hand pain. I was unable to lift my hand. ********* *** ****. I am satisfied with the treatment given. I did X-ray and medicines were prescribed. I can recommend doctor to my family or friends. I need to go again to meet the doctor for a routine checkup.
Had booked an appointment at Hardikar on 6 July 2019 at 11:00 AM. Dr arrived only at 12:30 PM and was available only till 1:30 PM, met him and was asked to get an X-Ray done. There was a long queue and no way I would have got my X-Ray before 1:30 PM. Had to ask for the refund of entire amount. Very unprofessional on the part of the Dr to keep his patients waiting despite of an appointment.... First and Last bad experience at Hardikar. 0/10.
the doctor went home when we had an appointment of 12.30. the doctor should have had thought of us as a patient coming all way long for his consultation and he left before that
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.
