If you are looking for high quality individualised services for your joint problems and injuries, you are at right place. I believe in shared decision making with you considering your wishes and requirements. I keep myself updated with latest researches and studies to make you aware of available treatment options. This helps me to offer you the most suitable treatment option that best suits your conditions and demands. Although, I follow evidence-based medicine in decision making, my sincere belief is that each patient is an individual and not a number of statistics in medical studies. Hence, I endeavour to individualise your treatment to best suit your personal need under the umbrella of the principles of evidence-based medicine.
Not all injuries and joint problems need surgery. With recent advances in biologics, many options are available to avoid surgeries and achieve similar benefits. However, if the surgery is absolutely indicated, I shall take you through available surgical options with their risks and benefits to decide the one best suit your situation and demand.
My support does not stop with surgery or immediately afterwards. I shall follow you until you are best recovered along with my highly trained team of support staff. I would not discharge you until you are completely recovered to your satisfaction.Your feedback is valuable and helps me to improve my care every time. Please let us know what we did well and what we could have done better to offer even better services for lur future patients.
I am committed to offer you comprehensive treatment with myriads of treatment options and help you making best decision for your health. I believe in offering evidence based medical treatment but with element of individualisation to avoid treating you as a number in statistics. Compassion, confidentiality, commitment and complete accountability are core principles of my treatment and care.
Mr Ulhas Sonar is married to Dr Sherley Gohil who is paediatrician. They together enjoy travelling exploring and reading in free times. They share vision of supporting charities to help poor and deprived kids to uplift them from poverty
I am an orthopaedic surgeon with special interest in hip, knee and shoulder surgeries including sport medicine. I am trained both in India and UK for more than twenty years to learn and sharpen my diagnostics as well as operative skills. I completed my medical school from famous BJ Medical College in Pune, India which is one of the topmost old medical schools in India. Orthopaedics had always been my passion. After medical schooling, I managed to secure orthopaedic training post in government medical college and hospital in India which are known for excellent surgical training due to overwhelming number of patients. I completed my orthopaedic training from Indira Gandhi Government Medical College and Hospital at Nagpur, India. Immediately, after completion of training I cleared MPSC (Maharashtra Public Service Commission) exam with top rank and was one of youngest orthopaedic surgeon to be offered permanent service as Assistant Professor in MUHS (Maharashtra University of Health Sciences), Nashik under Government of Maharashtra. I worked as an Assistant professor for 2 years at various top medical institutes and reputed Government hospitals in state of Maharashtra India. I trained many orthopaedic trainees during that time as well as taught orthopaedics to undergraduate and post graduate students. However, quest of further learning and excellence dragged me to the UK (United Kingdom) to join MCH training at famous Wrightington Hospital which is a centre of excellence with home to Sir John Charnley where joint replacement originated.
I completed my three years of MCH training in Upper limb surgeries with special focus on shoulder and elbow surgeries. This was conducted by Edgehill university, Liverpool along with Wrightington hospital. While working in shoulder units I developed interest in sport medicine and joint injuries. Hence after completing formal MCH training, I continued working in hip, knee and shoulder units to learn and further sharpen my skills in treatment of ailments of these joints. Meanwhile I completed various qualifications including FRCS, FEBOT and postgraduate diploma in Computer assisted Total Knee replacements.
Overall, I have trained myself for many years to provide my patients with comprehensive care for all possible problems with hip, knee and shoulder joints as a one stop solution. I am able to offer you latest research-based treatment with all possible and available treatment options with minimal biases towards either as I have trained myself in all these surgeries equally. I have all surgeries as well as nonsurgical treatment options in my armamentarium for these joint problems.
My practice is strongly based on evidence-based medicine along with individualised approach towards each patient. I actively contribute towards academics as well as research in orthopaedics. I regularly teach on FRCS training courses. Also, I have helped to design questions for the FRCS exam. I have published many research papers and presented them in national and international podiums. I am very keen in teaching and training junior colleagues and keeping myself updated with latest guidelines to maintain good clinical practice.
I am very passionate person who loves his work. Performing appropriately indicated surgeries and executing them to the perfection satisfies me the most. I feel surgery is an art which has to be mastered with hours of dedicated practice. Learning and mastering this art is my passion.
