Patients Review

My dad is 80 years old and has been suffering from Orthopedic complications. Dr. Pilankar operated on his spine in August 2018. The operation was smooth. Though there were some complications in recovery, he kept following with us until my dad was completely recovered. I must say, he is the best Orthopedic surgeon we have experienced so far. A big thank you!

Dr Samir Pilankar is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. He operated my 86 yrs old father, Mr Pradhan, 2 months ago , for hip fracture. In spite of various other age related ailments , my father is walking with the help of walker and doing his own chores. I am an anesthesiologist, working with various orthopedic surgeons for last 30 years. Dr Pilankar is probably the the first orthopedic surgeon who operates very delicately n precisely. He takes care of the patient as a whole and not just the BONE unlike other orthopedic surgeons.
