Dr Konchwalla performed my ACL reconstruction (replacement) surgery in addition to fixing the torn meniscus. I am still in the very early stages of rehabilitation but I am highly impressed by his manner and expertise.
Before Dr Konchwalla, I had previously seen two other Orthopaedic Surgeons but neither of these left me satisfied. After reading heavily around the subject area (ACL and meniscus injuries), I gathered a list of recommended surgeons in the UAE, of which Dr Konchwalla was one of the most highly recommended.
He goes through his appointments at a fast pace so it's worth doing some reading and having your questions ready. Nevertheless, I have always been highly satisfied by the quality of service offered and I would happily recommend him.
I suffered from pain & restrictive movement in my left shoulder after exercise in the gym for quite some time. I managed to see a specialist who advised me to go for surgery. I was afraid and wanted to try conservative approach. However, during April-17, my left shoulder got frozen and resulted in increased pain and restrictive movement. I had my second MRI during June-17 and I was told to go for surgery as the situation was getting bad.
I started searching for sports surgeons and consulted six different doctors including Dr. Ashfaq Konchwalla who seemed to have the best qualifications & experience to perform the required surgery.
Dr. Konchwalla convinced me to have the required surgery, helped me to undergo surgery without fear and explained the related benefits & possible risks to me. Surgery was performed by Dr. Konchwalla as planned during end of July-17.
I was discharged from the hospital on the third day. After surgery, I feel that recovery is quite fast and going on as planned and the range of movement has improved a lot. The movement is getting better under the physiotherapy assigned by Dr. Konchwalla.
I feel that Dr. Konchwalla has helped me a lot in getting back to a more pain-free life. I am thankful to Dr. Konchwalla for all his efforts with his patients including myself.
I will definitely contact Dr. Konchwalla in case there is any future requirement.
After suffering from shoulder pain for a while I decided to do something about it. A search on the internet led me to contact Dr. Konchwalla, who seemed to have the best qualifications and experience to help me.
After contacting him and having surgery I can say I definitely was not disappointed. My surgery went exactly as planned and my recovery was precisely as he described it would be. My only regret in the whole experience is that I did not contact him much sooner.
I would not hesitate to contact Dr. Konchwalla in the future for any orthopedic problems. Highly Recommended!
In March 2012, I was playing with my family and friends on the beach when I suffered a fall and twisted my knee. I was taken to Medicare Hospital in Jumeirah where I was seen in the ER. An X-Ray and CT scan were done.
After seeing Dr. Konchwalla, the consultant orthopaedic surgeon, he confirmed that I had a comminuted intra-articular fracture of the tibial plateau.
On the 1st of April 2012, the doctor discussed the different options of treatment (conservative vs surgical) in detail. After a discussing with my husband and Dr. Konchwalla, I decided to proceed with surgery.
He discussed the risks, benefits and complications of surgery with my husband and I. The doctor said that my knee won't be normal due to the comminuted fracture. We planned to proceed with surgery on the 3rd of April 2012.
I was admitted on the 3rd of April 2012 and the following procedures were performed:
- Left knee orthoscopic-assisted intraarticular fracture fixation of tibial plateau with double plate.
- Lateral and medial meniscal repair.
- MCL reconstruction
- Bone graft
Surgery went well. I was discharged after 5 days. The doctor gave instructions with medication and mobolized non-weight bearing with the help of crutches. Unfortunately, he told me that I would have to go for another two surgeries and explained the long term outcome of the surgery. I was pleased with the progress, however I still had restricted range of movement. The doctor showed me some exercises and referred me to physiotherapy.
After 3 years of pain and still on crutches, I decided to proceed with my second surgery as the doctor advised. In October 2015, the doctor removed my pins and plates at Saudi German Hospital
I recovered fast and then I had to prepare for my third and final surgery which was a total knee replacement with revision stem. This was done on August 16th 2016 at the same hospital and it was a very unique surgery.
In present day, I feel very comfortable and I have a good range of movement with my leg. Doctor Ashfaq, I appreciate you giving me a more pain-free life. In addition, my walking has also improved thanks to the physiotherapy at the hospital.
I would like to thank you for your dedication in giving me a pain-free life and sticking with me through a journey that spanned over 4 years.
I was having pain in my left knee after a long run and after an MRT test it was clear that something was wrong. I tore my ACL on that knee 8 years ago in Singapore and now by luck I met Dr Konchwalla in Saudi German hospital. He checked test results and advised that I had a meniscus tear.
Dr Konchwalla did a great job, not only on persuading me that I needed surgery, but he did surgery by himself. Everything during and after the operation went good. I even watched the whole surgery process on TV during the operation.
Recovery was quite fast and thanks to physiotherapy assigned by Dr Konchwalla, training and after 2 months, I feel very good and looking to start jogging in next 2 months.
Thank you very much Dr Ashfaq Konchwalla!
After 7 years when I faced knee problems I have been advised different surgeon, even I have made all arrangements in my home country, but truly speaking my inner was not satisfied to go anywhere and then I seek help from Almighty Allah in the night. Next morning I was so relieved and relaxed and I decided to go to Dr. Ashfaq.
I have done both knee replacement surgery and I'm so happy and satisfied, I started walking within two weeks time
I would say Dr. Ashfaq, as a surgeon and as a human being, very kind, very nice and a great human being.
Doctor Konchwalla is very caring and knows his work perfectly. Before visiting him I had been "treated" by other doctor for 1 month(!) without progress at all.
I had a knee meniscus tear and suffered with pain and swelling for a long time but felt better immediately after my first visit. Later I had treatment and physiotherapy and this made my health much.better, even without surgery.
A big THANKS to this doctor and I wish him a lot of success ! :-)
I had a shoulder impingement for more than 6 months and suffered pain and loss of mobility. When i met him for the first time, his knowledge, friendliness and approach created instant faith.
After arthroscope surgery, the next week I went back to office and routine activities and 90% mobility back in less than a month.
He is knowledgeable and always reachable. I strongly recommend him for any sports/joint related surgery. Thanks Dr.Ashfaq.
I was referred to Dr Konchwalla by my friend after my cardiologist recommended me to see a orthopaedic doctor due to constant pain and numbness in my right hand palm and shoulder.
On my first visit to Dr. Ashfaq, he immediately identified a problem in my shoulder. After an MRI he diagnosed a shoulder impingement and very diligently explained 3 possible courses of treatment to cure this condition.
I elected a permanent solution through surgery and Dr Konchwalla quickly scheduled and carried out the procedural surgery at the Saudi German Hospital. He performed Arthroscopic surgery to create more room for the rotator cuff by removing inflamed tissue and doing an anterior acromioplasty to remove a portion of the acromion bone, as well as removing the acromioclavicular arthritis I had as well.
The surgery went very well and in less than a month full mobility was restored to my shoulder with full arm raising with the physiotherapy program Dr Konchwalla recommended.
I can highly recommend Dr Konchwalla for shoulder impingement and arthritis problems and for his excellent diagnostic and surgical skills. Above all he is a very humble, soft spoken and caring doctor.
Thank you so much Dr Ashfaq Konchwalla.
Dr. Ashfaq is truly one of a kind doctor with his unique set of skills and experience. When I first met him, I was suffering from ACL, PCL and meniscal tear. I had visited many doctors, but there were none who could perform PCL surgery and hence after a lot of research I ended up with Dr. Ashfaq - as his reputation precedes him.
He promised me a fast recovery and delivered on his promise. I absolutely recommend him for surgery and would advise all people suffering from ligament injuries to immediately get it done with the surgery as prolonging it will only make matters worse.
I have been suffering for pain in my left knee for a few months. I got in touch with Dr Ashfaq Konchwalla at Saudi German hospital. After a MRI I got to know that I was suffering with a torn meniscus.
Dr Ashfaq performed a surgery which lasted 30 minutes under local anesthesia. I must say that he was very professional and certainly seems to be an expert in his field. I am feeling much better after my surgery and can at all times recommend Dr Ashfaq Konchwalla for any orthopedic related issues.
A former patient :-)
I first met Dr Ashfaq Konchwalla when I was suffering knee problems and visited him at Medcare Hospital Dubai. Two years later when I had further knee issues (as I was very pleased with the treatment he gave me) I sought Dr Ashfaq out at Saudi German Hospital Dubai.
He always seems to put the patients needs first and takes great care to ensure that your welfare is a priority. Anyone with knee problems will be well looked after by Dr Ashfaq.
I was referred to Dr Konchwalla by my GP after a shoulder injury was causing me constant pain and limiting my arm movement. After an MRI he diagnosed a shoulder impingement and very diligently explained all the courses of action open to manage this condition. I elected a permanent solution through surgery and Dr Konchwalla quickly scheduled and carried out the procedure at the Saudi German Hospital.
He performed Arthroscopic surgery to create more room for the rotator cuff by removing inflamed tissue and doing an anterior acromioplasty to remove a portion of the acromion bone, as well as removing the acromioclavicular arthritis I had as well. The surgery was perfect and I had virtual immediate relief and full mobility was restored to my shoulder with full arm raising within a month.
Two months later, after completing the physiotherapy programme Dr Konchwalla recommended, I have none of constant pain I had anymore, as well as full mobility of my arm and shoulder. I can truly recommend Dr Konchwalla for his management of my shoulder impingement challenge and his most excellent surgical skill. Thank you Dr Konchwalla!
I came to know Dr Ashfaq through a colleague of mine. Dr Ashfaq performed two operations on my both knees to repair meniscus damage. Both ops were a success.
He will be soon performing a third op on my ankle for a tendon reconstruction. Dr Ashfaq is a highly skilled surgeon who inspires you confidence. He would treat you like a friend and explain to you everything before, during and after the op. I highly recommend him for anyone in need of an orthopaedic surgery.
I had an injury in my right knee (medial meniscus grade-III tear) while playing a cricket match 3 years ago. I saw three doctors before but I could not find a permanent solution. I went to Dr. Mohammed Ashfaq Konchwalla after much research and he assured me that he would fix it by meniscectomy using arthroscopic surgery.
It was a very short (approximately 15 minutes) and simple procedure and I was out of the hospital the next day. He has done a great job, everything went smoothly. He has a great attitude and has been answering all my questions before and after the surgery. I would highly recommend Dr Mohammed Ashfaq Konchwalla to those who have related problems. He is the best Orthopedic and Sports Surgeon.
I visited Saudi German Hospital for a knee injury and meet Dr. Ashfaq. Right from the beginning he recommended arthroscopy to fix the torn meniscus in my left knee. I have had both ligaments and meniscus repaired due to skiing accident many years back on my right knee and was very afraid to have an-other procedure on my left knee.
I sustained this injury in March and did a lot of physio therapy but things did not improve and finally as per doctor’s recommendation got the procedure done on December 10th.
It was a very short (15 mins) a simple procedure and I was out of the hospital the next day and am currently doing my therapy and am very pleased with Dr. Ashfaq. All along he has been excellent in educating and preparing for different stages to recovery and In Sha Allah I will be able to do normal activities within few weeks.
I will strongly recommend Dr. Ashfaq for anyone who has any ortho-related injuries and problems. To sum up, I will just say he knows what he's talking about and is very good at what he does.
Dr Ashfaq is an excellent knee surgeon with a great attitude. He operated on my ACL 3 months back and things have progressed well so far. I would recommend him to anyone considering the same procedure.
Dr Asfaq is truly a specialised surgeon who almost can tell what your problem is just by examining you. He also is not commercially oriented like some other doctors who recommend procedures only for the money. Only if needed he would suggest a surgery or any further procedure. His treatment is like magic and the surgery was perfect. The cuts and marks are just as much as needed. Perfect doctor with a good heart! :)
I had an injury in my right finger in a cricket match and I went to Dr. Ashfaq. He assured me that I will be able to play in a big tournament in two weeks time. And yes, I played THANKS TO DR. ASHFAQ!!
Selecting a surgeon in whom you have complete confidence is a daunting undertaking often taken under less than ideal conditions. I hope this recommendation of Dr Ashfaq gives reassurance to anyone considering using his services.
Dr Ashfaq’s qualifications and extensive experience particularly in arthroscopic surgery led me to consult him originally for a meniscal/ACL injury I sustained to my knee 3 years ago. Surgery and recovery was, and has been, remarkable. The knee has been 100% trouble free since.
I had no hesitation, therefore, in seeking him out when a similar injury befell my other knee recently. Although only three weeks post op, I have no reason to believe that my recovery will be anything other than equally as good.
I have no reservations in recommending Dr Ashfaq for any injury requiring arthroscopic intervention.
I had damaged my right knee in three places including the ACL tear. I went to Dr. Ashfaq after much research and he assured me he would fix it in 2-3 weeks. It is 13 days since the surgery, I am able to walk, drive and I believe, in another 2-3 weeks, I will be back to my playing days.
I'm really impressed with his abilities, in-depth know-how and pleasing demeanor. I recommend him to anyone who has similar issues irrespective of age & gender. Please contact me if you wish to know more.
Dr Mohammed Ashfaq is an excellent surgeon. I had an knee ACL injury, in which I injured it when I was playing sport. Dr Ashfaq operated on my knee. ACL reconstruction.
With the help of crutches I walked and I also went home the same day. Now I am playing rugby ( 6 months after the surgery)
My friend had a shoulder impingement, she had a shoulder arthroscopic and now she is back to normal within 6 weeks
I would highly recommend Dr Mohammad Ashfaq Konchwalla to those who have related problems. He is best Orthopedic and Sports Surgeon.
