"My name is Susan Hasen, I am from Zimbabwe. I was admitted to Wockhardt Hospital, Mira Road for bilateral hip replacement surgery. I had been suffering from hip pain for 3 years consecutively, so much so that I was not able to walk even 5 meters. Every day routine activities were becoming difficult for me. I was not even able to sit or stand. At Wockhardt Hospital Dr Niraj Kasat, an orthopaedic surgeon viewed all my reports and I was asked to carry out certain investigations. Dr Niraj explained how important it was for me to undergo a surgery. He thoroughly explained the procedure and all the post-operative care that would be required. My surgery was successful. Dr Niraj was very confident that I would be walking soon with any support, pain free. Initially I was given a frame and then a stick. I could even climb the stairs up and down without any discomfort. After a few days I was off the pain killers and I was able to walk with minimal support. I would like to thank Dr Niraj, Wockhardt Hospital staff and management for all the wonderful care they provided. Dr Niraj is a fabulous doctor and gives a lot of support and confidence."

"My name is Khalid; I was a soldier in the Sudan army. I underwent a traumatic accident and hurt my hand. In my hometown, I underwent multiple surgeries to restore its function. However none of my surgeries were successful. I was advised to come to India and was recommended Wockhardt Hospital, Mira Road. Through the international patient cell I was referred to Dr Niraj Kasat at Wockhardt hospital. Dr Kasat is a very experienced orthopaedic and reconstructive surgeon and also specialises in trauma surgery. He examined my case and explained in great detail all the pros and cons of undergoing surgery.

I underwent a successful surgery which encompassed an internal fixation, flap surgery with bone grafting. After the surgery I can actually feel the difference in movement in my hand. At least some of the function is restored and I have full faith in Dr Kasat’s treatment at Wockhardt hospital, Mira Road. All the nursing staff and management in the hospital were very efficient, supportive and hospitable, right from the time of arrival at the hospital to my surgery all procedures were taken care off hassle free. I am very grateful to the management and all the doctors at the hospital and will definitely recommend it to friends and family in Sudan and Middle East. It is one of the best and preferred hospitals in India for specialised treatment. "
