I suffered from Sciatica for over 8 months, and had originally tried the conservative approach, however never got better. I saw Mr Chitnavis half way through and we discussed the options, and reconvened after a few months to check on progress. Pain had not got any better, so I knew I wanted surgery. Mr Chitnavis explained to my wife and I all the pros and cons, and by the end of it I knew surgery was the right option for me. The whole process could not have gone better, and had surgery a week later. Upon waking I noticed immediately that had no leg pain for the first time in ages. Scar healed quickly, and am now walking around pain free which is exactly what I wanted. My wife and I found Mr Chitnavis to be most caring and understanding, and always felt in good hands throughout.
I had a discectomy back in January 2018. I was in agony with a trapped sciatic nerve,due to a broken disc, and fragments travelling up to the next disc, so the MRI scan revealed. I saw Mr. Bhupal Chitnavis, and immediately he put me at ease, and completely understood the permanent pain that I was experiencing. He really did give me hope that something could be done, even if some of the pain went. Mr.Chitnavis explained thoroughly on each consultation what was involved, and always checking that I was happy to go ahead. Even on the day of my operation, Mr. Chitnavis alleviated my nerves, and I felt that I couldn't have been in safer hands. His bed side manner was excellent, making me feel I was his only patient, as he always gave his undivided attention, and kept checking in on me, on his way to other patients. After 6 weeks or so, I can honestly say that my pain I had before my operation has all but gone, just very faint, and I no longer take pain relief. I would totally recommend Mr. Bhupal Chitnavis to anybody, and I am so grateful, that I was under his care, and at all times felt safe.
This doctor operated on my back, and has restored me to normal function. Prior to that I was living in intolerable pain, and had difficulty walking. He was outstanding in the care he provided, and I couldn’t recommend him more highly.
We met Dr. Chitnavis when my husband had symptoms of cervical myelopathy. He listened, explained exactly what was happening and helped us make the best decision to resolve this issue. He performed ACDF surgery on 3 levels Which was very successful. My husband feels like he has been given a new lease on life. Dr. Chitnavis is the best thing that happened to us in 2017. We were especially honored when he kept checking on my husband post surgery. He is talented, compassionate and results oriented. We trust him completely.
I found Mr. Chitnavis in an internet search of neurosurgeons covered by my insurance company. I selected him initially because of his warm smile and his excellent credentials. I am so happy that I did. Mr. Chitnavis is indeed a warm, kind, caring and very down-to-earth man. As importantly, he is everything you could possibly want in a surgeon about to go anywhere near your spine, meaning he has great training, years of solid experience, a high success rate but is very cautious in his approach. On my initial consultation for the horrible sciatica pain I’d been afflicted with for about 8 months, he listened very carefully to what I had to say. He questioned me and examined me thoroughly, then took the time to explain my treatment options including the risks and benefits of the surgery (a microdiscectomy). At the end of every consultation, he dictated a letter which summed up everything we’d discussed and sent it to me in the mail, so that there was no misunderstanding about what was said and what the next step to be taken was. By the time my surgery came around, I was completely relaxed, because I knew I’d made the best choice I could possibly have made for my treatment. During my stay in hospital, Mr. Chitnavis came to see me in my room before the surgery which I really appreciated. He was reassuring in the theatre before I went under and after the surgery, during my hospital stay, he came to check on my progress twice. I’m happy to say that from the day of my surgery until now, four weeks after my surgery, I have been pain free. No more sciatica and no complications or side-effects. I have my final checkup with Mr. Chitnavis in two weeks and if all continues to go well, I’ll be free to go on and live my life fully with a heart full of gratitude that I was able to be treated by this kind and professional man.
