Before I start my story I want to share a line that I read somewhere –
"For an ill person there is no religion, whoever gives him/her new life becomes their GOD”
I never understood pure meaning of the line until I met Dr. Niraj Vora and he operated my mother for arthritis.
Well to start my story we have to go back to two years from now when my mother started complaining about her knee pain. That time we thought it might be a normal Knee Pain and we started some pain killer for her relief. But sadly the pain kept increasing and it moved from one leg to both.
As we are based in small city in Madhya Pradesh we do not have too many good medical options there. And I was doing my job in Mumbai so we got an opportunity to get my mother checked with some good doctors here around a year back. However, we were not convinced fully to go with the Knee Surgery and it got dragged for one more year.
As the time passed-by the condition got worse and one of family doctor suggested that there is no cure for the problem other than the surgery. So, once again I had to call my mother to Mumbai for consultation.
Let me tell you it was so difficult to shortlist a good doctor with every one giving their own opinion in your family and friends circle. I got so confused with too many doctors name and finally decided to do my own research with the help of internet.
I shortlisted few names and called my mother to Mumbai. I took appointments for the same day for all the doctors. Dr Niraj Vora was the second doctor we visited that day and as we spent few minutes there I was convinced that we should go for surgery with him only.
He is one of the few doctors in India now a day’s who actually wants to understand the patient’s problem and will go deep into the root cause of it. He will suggest you what treatment is actually required for the patient out of his interest. I am sure if my mother had even one percent chance of recovery without surgery he would have denied for the surgery. So, finally after consultation we made our mind that we will go for the surgery with him only.
Initially, we were scared to go for both knees together as we thought it would be difficult for the patient to recover. However, Dr. Niraj made it simple for us by explaining that there is no much difference to go for both knees only difference is the cost and time you need to pay extra if you go for separate surgery.
As we took the appointment in Raheja Hospital I thought that we have to do the surgery there. However, Dr. Niraj gave us one more option of Sunridges Hospital in Juhu, which turned out to be much more economical for us. As usual I started my research about the hospital after that and found it really good, so we made our decision to go for both knees in Suridges Hospital in Juhu.
I was totally amazed with the service provided by the staff members and the assistant doctors in the hospital, my mother felt that she is just in her second home. Surgery went perfectly well and post-surgery the quality of service was as good as it was before surgery.
Dr. Niraj is one of the doctors who will not forget you once the surgery is done. He visited daily to keep a close eye on my mother’s recovery. He is totally a tech-savvy person and you can always expect reply of your e-mail within few minutes.
Most of the people must know that he is an amazing doctor, but let me admit that is one of the fittest doctors I have ever seen. Full of energy, extremely active, down to earth personality sets a perfect example for youngsters like us.
I am glad that we have such doctors in India though they have completed their studies abroad but believe to make medical industry much stronger in our country. A salute to you Dr. Niraj, you will always remain my role model in life from now onwards.
Its more than two months now after the surgery and my mother is totally fine walking without the help of stick, climbing stairs and doing exercise perfectly. And yes doctor you have given a new life to my mother, so now her only GOD is you.
Thanks a lot for your support and care. I guess this is the least I can do for you.
With warm regards
