I was suffering from Avascular Necrosis of the left hip, I had started a non surgical treatment from a well known orthopedic surgeon in Mumbai as I was working in Mumbai . As the days passes my pain became unbearable and I resigned from the job and came to my hometown Pune. I decided to go for the hip replacement surgery in Pune , as I was short of money I decided to go for a govt hospital . I got admitted and I was operated . I was told that I will be fine in a few days , but then they realised my THR is infected and then started series of operations . They operated my three times same leg , same position but with no results . I had a very big cavity in my wound which was not getting healed . After three surgeries they called Dr Nakul Shah for my treatment . He came and just saw the wound for a few seconds and went . Then he suggested a treatment to the doctor who were treating me . I was just wondering who this doctor is , so confident . I asked his name to my doctors in govt hospital and they said he is a well known surgeon . So I googled his name and found out many interviews of his on the Television . I was really impressed . Meanwhile a fourth surgery was done . I was hospitalized from June to a almost September in govt hospital . I was so frustrated with all this that I used to cry in hospital and never thought I will be able to walk again . But then I decided to go for hip replacement surgery by Dr Nakul Shah , he operated me and although my case was the most complicated case he was very confident. I was operated on 1st October and with may complicatios arising after surgery he guided me and whatever he suggested for me worked . Today I am walking without support and able to join a job . ** ***** **** ** **** *** *** ** * gave me a new life . He is a magician for sure and if you do not visit him for your orthopedic needs then definitely you are missing a great treatment . Thanks Dr Shah , *** *** *** **** ********** ******* * **** **** ******* *
Quite impressed as clinic has taken care of hygiene very well amid current pandemic situation.Wait time was quite less as Doctor was already there in clinic before our arrival which is rarely experienced with others, that's laudable..Doctor was friendly and gives you enough time to explain your issue and takes your inputs in consideration.. Thanks to them.. would like to recommend to friends and family..
I met with an accident 3 months before and fractured my left humerus bone badly. After searching for multiple doctors, I got a reference about Nakul sir from one of my friend who already had a treatment under him. When I first met to Nakul sir, the way he explained me the case and assured me that everything will be alright which gave me a very positive vibe. He shared his personal experience to dissolve my fear about the injury which was highly motivating before going to surgery as a plate needs to be inserted in my left hand. After surgery when Nakul sir keeping his hand on forehead and asked me "Kasa aahes bala". I never seen a doctor cared about his patient the way he did. I got 18 stitches and Nakul sir advised me a simple physiotherapy to recover quickly. It worked so well that I am back to normal hand movements in short time.
Special mention of Dr. Najuk Shah, really a genius doctor who know how to treat a patient and break his fear as wel. ********* ****** *** *********** My knee was damaged very badly but... The operation was sucessful. Doctor gave me confidence that I can recover hoto 95% and this is what the best part of it....

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.

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.
Q: Does an Orthopaedist treat sport injuries?
