Sports Injury – Torn ACL – Arthroscopic ACL reconstruction (Navi Mumbai)
I had a torn ACL on my left knee, due to a motorbike crash. My left knee was very unstable, swollen and painful. I had met Dr. Tawari at a time when I couldn’t walk with my knee extended because of the pain and the swelling, he was very thorough in his examination of the knee, he then explained to me the nature of the injury and procedures that will be performed on my knee then he gave me some pre-op exercises which were very effective in alleviating the swelling and helped me regain the range of motion. So my surgery was conducted in the month of June 2020 at the Apollo Hospital in Belapur, the doctors performed an ACL Reconstruction + Medial Plica Excision + Patellar Chrondroplasty. I was able to start walking with the help of a walker the same day and the knee has only improved ever since, currently I am 6 weeks post-surgery, undergoing physiotherapy and I am able to walk without support. I find Dr. Tawari’s approach very calculated and clear on the results that he wants to see in his patients, I found him very attentive to my concerns and questions everytime I met him. Overall, it was a great experience, very supportive team of doctors and staff, also procedure itself was relatively painless as its done arthroscopically (Discharged in 1 day). I’m sure that you’ll feel that you are in good hands, I would highly suggest Dr. Tawari for anyone who has had Sports Injuries like mine.
