A doctor who feels lucky to deliver personalized care to his patients, by Dr. Rajesh Dharia, Orthopedic and Knee Replacement Surgeon

“Maintaining the patient’s trust is difficult in today’s scenario since the patient has easy access to Google information, friends and relatives who can misguide based on their experience of fruits but not knowing the difference between apple and orange. I am always transparent,” says Dr. Rajesh Dharia, Orthopedic, and knee replacement surgeon.

Orthopedic surgeons are doctors who specialize in the musculoskeletal system - the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles that are so essential to movement and everyday life

 Dr. Rajesh Dharia, Orthopedic, and knee replacement surgeon, Mumbai is a known Orthopedic surgeon. He has been awarded a National award for Excellence and has a reputation to solve all unsolved bone and joint problems.

Deliver what I promise

Dr. Rajesh shares his views on, for surgery, the trust of a patient on his doctor is an important factor, so how he keeps the trust of the patient intact and maintains the standards of personalized care, Maintaining the patient’s trust is difficult in today’s scenario since the patient have easy access to Google information, friends and relatives who can misguide based on their experience of fruits but not knowing the difference between apple and orange. I am always transparent. I spend enough time with the patient for counseling about their issues. I give them the exact picture of the natural history of their problem, the modalities of treatment, and their pros and cons, possible complications. I have been lucky to deliver what I promise,” he says.

World’s best orthopedic surgeon

Dr. Rajesh talks about being the world’s best surgeon to his patients, “World’s best, that’s for some of my patients. As you know every individual has a belief in a particular form of power they believe in and I am blessed to be one for many of my patients. It’s very humbling to be “World’s best” for many. I strive to get better each day,” he says.

3 decades of experience and counting

Dr. Rajesh explains, Experience is very difficult to gain and it’s after a long journey of tough situations. For anyone to come out from that furnace to be molded like gold after all that experience into a masterpiece of jewelry is a tough phase to undergo into an evolution but the result is good. It has been 30 yrs of orthopedics. In Mumbai than in the UK, Germany, and around the world in the USA/ Singapore/ Australia and the list will continue. The practice has changed markedly with changing scenarios of population and increasing number of orthopedic surgeons and now there is more to specialization in particular regions of the body, thereby more technicians and fewer doctors,” he says.

Myths are endless

Dr. Rajesh shares his opinion on, in a world where people have a school of thought that orthopedic or knee replacement surgeries should not be done, he has performed over 4000 knee replacement surgeries, “Myths are endless. The number of 4000 is an old one. It has doubled now to about 9000. Knee replacement has become popular and has been creating vibrations,” he says.
