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.
