I went to Doctor with an acute shoulder cuff pain caused due to an accident. at the first, he gave primary medication to cure pain explaining the damage. However he adviced to see if there is no improvement in stipulated time. As there were not much relief, I went to see him 3days later..then he adviced for x-ray. His consultation is in detail so it gives assurity of treatment and Doctor. By the third visit, my recovery was satisfactory and then he adviced for physio therapy. I recommend Doctor Purandare on 3 points.1. Detail consulting (to the point) and acute diagnosis2. Reasonable fees and no unnecessary pampering3. Soft Spoken and pleasent gesture towards patients
Doctor was very patient and clear while listening and explaning the dislocation and tear using the internet diagrams. I also asked him to briefly see old ACL replacement trouble and a finger injury. He was very patient to counsil those issues in the same session even using internet diagrams. Only thing which can improve is the hospital X-ray dept. It is costly,(Rs 600) and the person did not seem confident as he took a wrong x-ray intially even though i asked him about the position the doctor has asked me. He consulted doctor and took a new one. They did not charge me for the wrong part.
Hats off to the staff and Dr. Mayur. Last Saturday when I met an accident and was unconcious. Some random passerby took me to Orion Hospital. I gained my conscious while i was at the hospital already. I was traumatized and panicked. The frist thing I heard was don't worry you are in safe hands from Dr. Mayur. His approach to my condition the staff's empathy to my pain detailing to my injuries made me comfortable n felt me like home amongst all the strangers. I had segmented fracture on my shoulder. Which he is managing conservativly. Thanks to all of you.
I visited this doctor for my neck and shoulder pain.
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.

After physical examination, the orthopaedist may ask for imaging tests for confirming the extent of damage and then treat accordingly.
