Visited here to get diagnosed knee injury and spine pain. Doctor listen to you very patiently and try to understand your problem by making you move your body parts related to injury in a manner to understand what kind of injury it may be. Never unnecessarily ask for any X-rays or anything until and unless it is difficult to diagnose by manual process. Explain you exactly how your concerned body part works and how should you tackle it by giving it rest and strengthen it using exercise.
I have severe lower back problem because of buldged out disc. The physiotherapy is helping me a lot in recovering. The doctor helped me in understanding my situation and also guided proper exercises required for the recovery. The doctor is also very friendly. I would suggest others too to take physiotherapy from Dr. Gandhalikar

A: An orthopaedist is a medical doctor who specializes in diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to 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.
