"Passionate about work and Compassionate about people!!" This is Sonali, working as Senior Software Engineer in one of the IT giant in Pune. Here I am throwing some lights on my great experience with one of the best Spine Surgeon, Dr. Ajay Kothari from Sancheti Hospital Pune. I have been consulting to Dr. Ajay Kothari for Lumbar Wedge Compression Fracture. I still remember the day on which I had hard fall incident and was in very bad pain. So initially for time being I consulted to one of the hospital nearby me, however I was not getting that confidence and better relief. Then with my one of the friend’s reference I heard about Dr. Ajay Kothari. Immediately I visited him as I was in very much of back pain due to fall injury. As soon as I connected with him, very first he helped me to relieve my worries with his soft spoken words, “You will be fine very soon and could return back to regular routine as before”. This was the trigger point where I got half of the relief and the confidence. Then with his precise diagnosis and treatment, in couple of days only I started feeling better. With every follow up visit he kept me motivating which helped me a lot for speedy recovery. He is very much commendable & quick with his diagnosis and the line of treatment. Also he is not only attentive but also compassionate towards patients. Importantly, he always try to go for root cause of problem and possible issues associated with it, about which we might not be aware about .There exactly he helped by explaining the things and made me aware . He is always approachable for the patients. He is empathetic, great listener and genuinely concerned about his patients well-being. Throughout he’s been very patient while responding to my queries. I would say he is a great asset in Today’s Medical Era, where he has been helping people with utmost care and doing great amount of contribution in society’s well-being, through different channels of digitalization as well. I am very Grateful and Thankful to him for his help and support throughout.And yes, now I am back to my regular routine as he said in very first conversation!! Thanks a ton!!

It was a fantastic recovery and experience at Sancheti Hospital - Shivaji Nagar at Pune. Doctors work without egos and personally visit every patient daily to personally check on everything around you. I came with a hopeless leg ache and a broken heart as being an athletic person, I thought this was an end. In 2 days post spine surgery I am up and finely walking. I am assured will run and hike soon too. Thank you Dr Parag Sancheti, Dr Ajay Kothari, Dr Ankita-my physiotherapist and Dr Jayesh for being there through tough times. You made me feel at home.

Dr Ajay Kothari is an extremely competent and skillful surgeon. He has good clinical skills to diagnose the condition. Uses minimum investigations which is contrary to todays scenario. Emphasis on physiotherapy and ergonomics is the main stay of treatment. Very compassionate. My mother underwent complex spine surgery and had a very successful outcome.
