Testimonials of Patients –

  1. Mrs. Teresia Adoyo’s Being, a 78 years old lady, had fear of undergoing a hip replacement surgery. It was justified as she never really could put her trust in the treatment modality. However, things changed for good when she met Dr. Manu Sharma, for Orthopedic and Joint Replacement treatment.

2. Dr Kalpesh Shah was admitted in Shalby hospital for his Total Knee Replacement recently. A family physician by profession, he has            been in practice in Shahibaug and Asarva areas of Ahmedabad since the past 35 years.

Dr Kalpesh Shah enjoyed being a patient after 35 years of being a doctor. His wife Chetnaben was with him and both had the same opinion that their brief staying experience in Shalby was like to a resort rather than a hospital. Dr Kalpeshbhai said that although he was a doctor and took good care of himself, unfortunately he had hereditary joint pain from his mother, Chandrakantaben, who also had same problem.

Kalpeshbhai has suffered knee pain in both legs since many years. He was operated on one knee at another hospital in Ahmedabad a few years ago. But, that surgery did not go well. He suffered pain and prostate trouble during his first surgery as the urinary catheter was put for a longer time in his bladder and it developed. He also suffered operative pain for a month after that surgery. So for his second knee came to Shalby and that resulted in a happy experience, said Dr Kalpeshbhai.
