Dr. M L Saraf does not need an introduction

Who has not heard the name of Dr. M L Saraf? Every person having an orthopedic problem would have benefited from his knowledge either directly or indirectly. We say this because he has treated thousands of patients on his own. In addition he has taught the finer points of orthopedic medicine to thousands of students as well from all over India. Hence, any orthopedic doctor treating you in India would have been influenced at some point or the other by Dr. M L Saraf. Is that not proof enough?

An absolute authority on the subject of orthopedics, M L Saraf has had an immensely successful career until date. We are not referring to the amount of money he might have or might not have earned. We refer to the number of patients who he has treated over the past four and a half decades. This includes an innumerable number of poor villagers from the outskirts of Mumbai, India who he has treated free. This is the greatness of Dr. M L Saraf.

Very few people in the world do not know what it is to come second in any activity. The former Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh is one such person. Dr. M L Saraf is another. Ironically, Dr. Manmohan Sigh has also been one of his patients at one point in time. Dr. M L Saraf has the distinction of treating a number of high-profile patients. This includes the Afghan Premiere Dr. Hamid Karzai, the US President Bill Clinton, the former Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee, the thespian Dilip Kumar, etc. The list could go on and on.

However, do you think Dr. M L Saraf enjoyed treating such high-profile patients? Literally speaking he loves treating every patient, irrespective of caste, creed, and color. In fact, he loves treating the underprivileged people more in comparison to the high-profile ones. Dr. Saraf is of the opinion that the rich people have innumerable alternatives whereas the underprivileged poor do not have anyone.

This has not been an overnight decision. Dr. M l Saraf had observed the travails of the poor when he was doing his medical internship at the KEM Hospital in Mumbai. He used to see these patients struggle to reach the hospital from their villages. The treatment at the hospital is free but the traveling is not. This can break the spine of the poor people. An orthopedic specialist in every sense of the word, Dr. M L Saraf would never allow this to happen. He took a decision at that instant that these poor people deserve to have the benefit of his expertise.

In order to achieve proficiency in the subject, he enrolled at the University of Liverpool for doing his Masters in the subject. He cleared the course with flying colors thereby enabling him to come back to India and indulge in his passion of providing the best health care to the poor and underprivileged villagers. The blessings of such poor people can outweigh any wealth in the world.

We can simply state that here is a person who does not know what it is to come second. He has secured the first rank in which ever examination he has appeared in his career.

When we say career, we refer to period from his school time until date. He has always stood first. He has lost the count of the number of gold medals he must have won during the course of his career. Starting from his first year in college at the Elphinstone College in Mumbai to the time he obtained his MBBS degree from the Seth G S Medical College, he has been the recipient of the gold medal for the best performance in academics. He then went on to major in orthopedics from the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Mumbai. The highlight of his career has been receiving the Norman Roberts Prize for the best thesis at Mch Orth.

If the Head of State happens to be the most powerful person in the world, the achievement becomes greater. Dr. M L Saraf was the head of the team attending to the President of the United States Bill Clinton when he visited India.

Dr. Saraf cherishes these special awards. He considers them as his most notable achievements. In addition, he is an authority on the subject of knee replacement.

Deals with Hip Reconstruction

Front view of a pelvis with hip joint cut with an artificial joint place in the leg bone.Hip replacement has been one of the most common surgeries in the orthopedics world. After the surgery, you will have to be moved into the recovery room and would need to stay there for a few hours until you would wake up. It will take about 3 to 4 days for you to stay in the hospital although that would depend on how fast your progress will be. In terms of pain, you will have some medication which will make you feel comfortable. It is advisable to always breathe deeply to avoid lung congestion after the surgery according to Dr. M. L. Saraf.

The good thing about this surgery is that there are very low complications and some very serious infections could occur in less than 2% of the patients. Bacterial infiltration would enter into the blood stream which also could happen during dental procedures, skin infections or UTI. It is always a must to take antibiotic before you go into any kind of surgery. For hip replacement, blood clots in the leg veins are common. It could be life threatening if not properly taken care of your surgeon will be able to tell any symptoms or if you find one, don’t hesitate to call him.

After a while, you would need to do some light exercise like contracting and releasing your muscles in the legs and buttock. You need to restrict hip movement in the beginning as well. Your surgeon or the physical therapist would be able to give you proper advice regarding movements and therapy. You will be working with your PT after the day of your surgery.

After the surgery, it is a must that you have already a plan on the arrangement. Someone could help you drive home on a very comfortable car seat. You would need to have a help such as a friend who could do some cleaning, shopping and other household chores. This could go on for a month as you will not be able to mobilize properly. Stick to food which are easy to prepare like frozen, canned and do setup your phones, laptops and other gadgets beside you so it would be easy to get hold of it. When you are at home, a PT may come for sessions at least 2 to 3 times a week. This is one of the most common aftercare options.

Dr Ml Saraf
