As a very Senior Citizen I approached Dr. Adkar with lots of fears in mind. He I found, is a good listener, which is extremely important. Thereafter his injury assessment was very reassuring & motivating. This itself is a cure.
I know Dr. Adkar for last 10 yrs and his diagnosis and treatment has never gone wrong. I last visited him for my shoulder pain 2 days ago and my pain has reduced by 40%. Hope for 100%.Thanks a lot Dr. Adkar
Fully satisfied with treatment. The interaction with Doctor and explanation by him for health issues and appropriate advice and follow up treatment were gratifying.
Being a dancer, injuries are a occupational hazard. Felt my ankle injury, told me to get an x-ray done. So far so good. Then wrote out 2 medicines and told to go to their physiotherapy centre to get ultrasound for 5 days. Nothing else. ****** **** ********** **** ** ************* ******* *** ******** **** ********* *** *** ********** A single day ultrasound costs RS 300 and I definitely don't need it to reduce pain. Long term protection from such injuries for dancers not explained.
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.
