Clinical Experience

Trauma care and Orthopaedics

I have an excellent exposure in Traumatology during my training and as senior registrar . I have performed most surgeries of upper and lower extremities both independently and under supervision. I am experienced in Osteosynthesis of fractures of upper & lower extremity. In Germany I was trained in AO techniques for fracture fixation, Minimally invasive osteosynthesis by LCP, LISS and Modular External fixators, Fixation of pelviacetabular fractures, Management of polytrauma patients and early rehabilitation.

Presently I am involved in Trauma surgery fresh & neglected. I have operated multiple #s by MIPPO, difficult fractures & dislocations of hip, fractures of Clavicle & Calcaneus, Lisfranc’s #dislocation, Reconstruction of pelviacetabular #s and hand fractures. I have also successfully treated various Paediatric #s conservatively & operatively. I have also used Biodegradable implants for capitellar, femoral head & talar fractures.

I was also exposed to various surgeries in Cold and Neglected orthopaedics. I am actively doing surgeries for non & malunions by various modalities. I have also used the LIPUS by Exogen for non union cases. I was actively involved in treatment of various cases of Limb deformity with Corrective osteotomies and Lengthening by Limb Reconstruction system.

I have actively treated successfully cases of Chronic osteomyelitis with 3 stage technique. I have actively assisted & treated in Curative or Limb salvage treatment of Benign or Malignant tumors of musculoskeletal system. I am also exposed to the different Paediatric disorders, their diagnosis and management.

Joint Replacement.

I have an excellent exposure and training in Hip and Knee Arthroplasty in Osteoarthritis, Avascular Necrosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Ankylosing Spondylitis. I have been thoroughly trained in Primary Cemented, Uncemented Total Hip Replacement and Cemented Total Knee Replacement at the Bombay Hospital, Mumbai. I am familiar with Exeter & C-Stem, Bicontact hip system for Hip replacements and PFC Sigma & Nexgen LPS Prosthesis for Knee replacements.

I am also familiar with Revision Uncemented hip replacement by Bicontact prosthesis and Revision cemented knee replacement by LCCK and TC3 prosthesis. I have actively assisted in complex Revision surgeries while working at Bombay Hospital with Dr J A Pachore. This has been an ideal opportunity for me to acquire and enhance my Joint replacement surgery skills that are extremely useful in my practice.

During my Fellowship in Germany I was improving my clinical and surgical experience in primary and revision arthroplasty of hip and knee. I achieved special education and training with computer navigation in arthroplasty.

I have independently operated Total hip replacement Cemented with Exeter, CPT systems and uncemented with Bicontact system. I have done plenty of cemented & uncemented Bipolar hip replacement for neck & intertrochanteric #s of femur. I routinely practice Writington wiring technique. I have independently operated Total knee replacements and complex revision hip replacement surgeries.

Arthroscopy

During my training I had an ample exposure in knee and shoulder arthroscopy both diagnostic and therapeutic. In Germany I actively participated in Arthroscopic ACL, PCL reconstructions, reconstruction of anterior labrum, rotator cuff and decompression, meniscal repairs and Autologous chondrocyte implantation. I was lucky to be involved in elbow, ankle and hip arthroscopy.

Presently I am doing Diagnostic scopies of knee, menisectomy & meniscal repairs, ACL avulsion fixation and Reconstruction, Autologous chondrocyte implantation. I have done Diagnostic shoulder arthroscopy & Bankart’s repair .
