Shoulder Surgery, Arthroscopy Rotator Cuff & Slap Repair – Goregaon, Mumbai

I have been playing Badminton from past 12 years. I was having shoulder pain since the past 2 and half years and I was trying to prolong my treatment. 6 months back, I finally went to Dr. Gautam Tawari for my checkup. After diagnosis and some scans we came to know about my injury at rotator cuff, Labrum tear and slap tear. We were trying to avoid surgery, but Dr. Gautam made us realise that surgery would be the best option. I am very happy that I listened to him and we went ahead with it. With his patience and knowledge, required skill set and countless discussions , today after 4 months of my surgery, I am all fine and have even started playing badminton too.

Wrist Surgery, Revision TFCC Repair – Panvel, Navi Mumbai

I fell down in high school, after a week my wrist started paining suddenly . I wasn't able to do anything because my hand got swelled a bit and when i started taking treatment the condition of my wrist became so bad even I wasn't able to write , taking bundles of books and bag or taking something which is heavy. While taking the treatement i started gaining weight. Then one of my family member suggested to go to hand surgeon, I visited there and showed all the medical records which I took , then after we removed MRI scan then I was diagnosed that I was having TFCC injury they told us that we have to an urgent surgery which is needed because the condition of wrist is critical and if not then it will increase and my parents took decesion to go for surgery.

Thats how I got operated and it was my first surgery (in the year 2018) but unfortunately the surgery was unsuccessful. After a month of my 1st surgery, my hand started paining again a lot and the pain was much more that before surgery and i wasnt able to move my little finger and was not able to sense the touch near my little finger. Suffered like this for almost 2 years, like going to other orthopedic surgeon or a hand surgeon, taking their treatement made my hand more than worst .

In 2020 september, I was searching names of hand surgeons and in than I got Dr.tawari's contact(last year, month October). After going to the hospital, they asked questions in very deep ,Explained them each and everything in detail. They told us that we will perform another surgery, and after that I got operated for 2nd time . The treatement after surgery was so good and followed their instructions. After 2 months i mean now, the changes which I am experiencing now is unbelievable. My little finger started to move and was able to sense it. I am able to write. The pain is relived almost going and also now visiting them for weekly or monthly checkups they inform us the condition of my wrist. I am very much thankful for Dr. Tawari. Once again thank you very much sir.

Wrist Surgery, Complex Wrist Fracture / Trauma Fixation - Navi Mumbai

I would highly recommend Dr.Tawari. I had an accident which broke my wrist needing a Surgery and an implant to be fitted for it to remain in place.

Was initially admitted to Dr.DY Patil Hospital, who suggested 3 surgeries stretched over a period of a year and also hospitalization for 3 weeks post the first Surgery. They could only guarantee 30% restoration of my wrist movement and a maximum of 50-60%.

I consulted Dr.Tawari through my sister. After seeing the X-ray reports he was confident he can complete the surgery in a few hours and the whole inpatient process lasted for a day and a half. Post which I was home and at my Business place the next day.

Dr.Tawari seems thorough, knowledgeable and confident and definitely a life saver.

I am actively into Callisthenics and Weight Training and though it's been about 8 months since the surgery, I feel confident and have recovered by 80% at least. I am yet to hit the gym to see if I can get back to heavy weights, but Doc seems confident. Which is assuring.

Overall A big Thank You Doc!

Knee Arthroscopy Surgery - Vileparle, Mumbai

Dr. Gautam Tawari, this name & the person himself r like God to us. He has treated our 2 very near & dear family members - My 9 years old niece & my mother in law.

My niece had a knee problem since she was 6. We visited each & every hospital & top doctors of Mumbai, but no one could understand the cause. On the horror side, one of the top pediatrician even gave her steroids injections 2-3 times to such a small girl, but to no vein.

Finally, we got to know about Dr. Gautam Tawari, he had recently shifted to Mumbai from UK. I think his knowledge & the approach towards patients are impeccable, which we did not find in any of the docs in Mumbai. He was the one to find the cause & then we started the treatment.

On the other side, he has also helped helped my mother in law to cure her bone problem.

I think he is sent to us by God. He has the best knowledge of his field. Those who are suffering from the orthopedic problem, should once visit the doctor. His way is different than others.

I wish his ALL THE BEST for all carrier ahead in life.

Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement (Khar, Mumbai)

My father had a fall in jamshedpur, he sustained a complex fracture with dislocation of the shoulder joint. We bought him from jamshedpur to Mumbai to see Dr Gautam Tawari, Shoulder Super Specialist surgeon. Dr Tawari has trained in UK and suggested we should opt for Shoulder replacement, as that would bring back most of my fathers movements in the shoulder. We underwent the surgery under his care, and he guided has during each stage of our post operative recovery. He explains everything in details and follows a very set protocol for every aspect of patients recovery. My father is now nearly 3 months post shoulder replacement surgery (reverse) and is fully independent. I would always recommend Dr Gautam Tawari for all simple & complex shoulder related problems and definitely recommend him highly for shoulder replacement surgery.

I am writing to you with regards to the help and support provided by you. In my life I have met many doctors for various reasons, however you are the first one to have had a huge impact on me and have managed to show what a 'true' doctor looks like. After meeting you, I have understood why being a doctor is called as the most noble profession and what really signifies a 'noble doctor' whose true intentions are only to safeguard life and be honest to their profession.

I was suffering from left shoulder pain since last 2 yrs with restricted movements of hand. I consulted 2-3 specialists, tried medication and physiotherapy, but got no relief. On recommendation of one of my friend I consulted Dr.Gautam Tawari. He suggested some neccessory tests and diagnosed me with Calcific Tendonitis in my shoulder.

Heel Pain – Achillis Tendinitis – PRP injection (Malad, Mumbai)

Visited Dr Tawari, when my wife's Achilles tendon injury was not healing even after few months of rest and physical therapy (we were originally seeing another doctor). The other doctors suggested surgery as the only other option. We reached out to Dr. Tawari. After diagnosis, he recommended PRP injection for the same. That injection worked wonders - just after two months she is feeling much better and is now able to walk. All thanks to him we were able to avoid a surgery.

Knee Arthroscopy – Knee Meniscal Repair (Chembur, Mumbai)

After injuring my left knee playing football I was in complete distress and visited serveral orthopedics in Mumbai. All of them told me that It needed an operation where my meniscus will be permanently removed except Dr Gautam Tawari who suggested to do the operation in a way where only the damaged part of the meniscus will be removed. To highlight the importance of not removing the entire meniscus is extremely important here. If I had gone with a complete removal of meniscus I would be more likely to face Artrithis in future. It is proven that patients who undergo complete removal of meniscus are more likely to get arthritis compared to the ones who remove only the damaged portion. This practice of removing of only damaged part is followed all across Europe and is preferred option for sports professional across globe. This made by decision easy to choose Dr Gautam Tawari to operate. My surgery went extremely well and post operation care was great too. I was guided about the exercise routine which I need to follow for next 6 months post the surgery. I after 3-4 months of surgery was able to do day to day activities normally and was able ride and drive. In my honest opinion I would suggest patients going through the same to visit Gautam Tawari and get your surgery done from him.

A very young but experienced Dr for sports injury.
