I am an orthopaedic surgeon with 40+ years of experience across various sub-specialties of orthopaedics. I have successfully conducted complicated reconstructive surgeries and fixation of artificial limbs. Besides my adult patients with upper-extremity joint conditions, the majority of my patients are children and adolescents, mainly because my forte is treating musculoskeletal ailments in children. I am often referred for rare paediatric orthopaedic disorders, in India and from abroad.

What I'd like to tell my patients
Childhood injuries and bone disorders may alter or impede growth, therefore, as a paediatric orthopaedic surgeon, I use a developmental approach to ensure each child's optimal lifetime function. I let no opportunity go abegging to help children in any way that I can.
I have often handled the worst case scenarios, wherein my patients came with chronic orthopedic conditions. I make every possible effort to make their lives healthier and happier.
Understanding the nuances of orthopaedics is often overwhelming, especially to a child’s parents. I understand that it takes patience, compassion and time to gain the trust of parents and the child and ultimately help them believe that they will heal. Given my commitment to excellence I am very confident that I can help your child recover and enjoy a healthy life. Along with the treatment of immediate as well as any chronic joint problems, I always strive to integrate the doctrine of prevention in all my treatment plans as a way to alleviate possible future difficulties.
Mother of a teenager
“"Thank you Moolchand Emergency, you made my emergency disappear"”
It was an amazing experience for me to be in a hospital which was efficient, attentive, friendly, approachable and quick to ease my troubles. I came back home with my child transformed to hale and hearty, laughing with me. Truly, a new year gift..."Moolchand" an able, capable and dependable friend on whom I can always count on. God bless and keep up the good work always!
Multiple fractures in knee, leg and ankle
“"I truly feel that Moolchand is the one place where patients come first"”
I thought I would never be able to walk normally again until I was treated at Moolchand Orthopaedic's Institute. Clean, comfortable and world class rooms with excellent facilities are only the starting point. The professional skill and caring attitude of the doctors and nursing staff made me feel extremely comfortable. They always helped me with all my informational needs, addressing every little concern I had. After visiting Moolchand, I truly feel that it is one place where patients come first and just the right healthcare partner.
