Shoulder and Knee Surgeon Bangalore
Hi, I am a Bangalore based orthopedic surgeon who specializes in knee and shoulder surgeries with expertise in the field of sports medicine. I help patients suffering with knee, shoulder and sports injuries recover and rehabilitate. For this I use a multidisciplinary approach, with conservative medical management , physiotherapy and surgery as determined necessary on a case-to- case basis. My special skills lie in knee and shoulder arthroscopy as I prefer as minimally invasive an intervention as can be allowed for in majority of patients. From shoulder bursitis to rotator cuff repair, from knee arthroscopy to ACL surgeries, I hope to help my patients get back on with their game.
We specialize in orthopedic surgery and handle the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and injuries of the bones, muscles, tendons, nerves and ligaments.
Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic and surgical procedure performed for joint problems. Shoulder arthroscopy is performed using a pencil-sized instrument called an Arthroscope.
Shoulder Replacement – anatomical & reverse shoulder replacement
The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint. During a shoulder replacement, a metal ball on a stem is inserted into your upper arm bone and a plastic surface is fitted onto the socket.
Sports Injuries and Dislocations
Rotator Cuff Disorders
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint, keeping the head of your upper arm bone firmly within the shallow socket of the shoulder. A rotator cuff injury can cause a dull ache in the shoulder, which often worsens when you try to sleep on the involved side.
Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition characterized by stiffness and pain in your shoulder joint. Signs and symptoms typically begin gradually, worsen over time and then resolve, usually within one to three years.
Fractures/Trauma Reconstructive Surgery around shoulder
Knee Arthroscopy Sports Injury
Knee arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that allows doctors to view the knee joint without making a large incision (cut) through the skin and other soft tissues. Arthroscopy is used to diagnose and treat a wide range of knee problems.
Ligament Reconstruction around the Knee
Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL reconstruction) is a surgical tissue graft replacement of the anterior cruciate ligament, located in the knee, to restore its function after an injury. The torn ligament is removed from the knee before the graft is inserted in an arthroscopic procedure.
5 months ago-With immense pleasure I rate 5 stars and recommend anyone looking for specialist in Ortho care. My mother had a complete muscle tear on right shoulder and came to BLR for the treatment all the way from Imphal. Being not a local, it was tough to decide whom do we consult in BLR then I came across Dr Shushal’s name when I looked up on the internet for the best doctor in BLR. He really understood the injury and also made us calm by clearing our anxiety. He very patiently advise what is the injury and whats needs to be done which was to undergo a key hole surgery. He really went out of his comfort to explain/guide/help in hospitals expenditures/insurance/stay and also not to forget the suggestion to complete the pre-surgery test in hospitals in advance so that my mother (patient) doesn’t need to stay at hospital unnecessarily. The surgery was smooth & successful and he also gave the guidance/rehab/physio exercise steps/procedures in detailed which my mother needs to follow up at hometown. My mother is recovering well and much happier person now. Thanking Dr Shushal for his unreserved & wonderful support from day 1 till todayPrakash RK

It is usually desired that you get the best consultation and physiotherapy at one place, so that the review process is easy and well guided. Praxis Ortho Care precisely addresses this ideal desire. With the paramount guidance of Dr.Sushal and the tremendous skills of the physiotherapists, I had a very smooth road to recovery. I had an Arthroscopic Bankart Repair done for my shoulder. I was a little skeptical about the physio part and the pain I might have to go through. But with consistent guidance and a step by step procedure, the physiotherapists at Praxis made my life as easy as it can get. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who’s looking for Ortho consultation / Physiotherapy in Bangalore.Kailasnadh Komara
Doctor Shushal is amazing. He understood my problem carefully and then prescribed me a surgery and also explained me the consequences of the surgery carefully. He took care of everything well for me and gave me timely attention. My physiotherapy was done by Ranadip Banerjee, he was very helpful since day one and helped me achieve my desired goal in the due time. He always pushed me and made sure that I do my level best to lead a normal life. I highly recommend Praxis Ortho Care to anyone.Ashu Sharma
