Patil died of drug resistant TB. A very painful death with a disease where even the hospital staff and family does not want to be around the patient for their own safety

Dear Friends,

I would like to share with you an article that appeared in Deccan Chronicle (Hyderabad) on 27/04/11 regarding my work on OA knees.

Initially when I spoke about holistic Orthopedics and introduction of yoga therapy in the treatment of OA knees as an add-on to our conventional treatment methods, I did not get encouraging response and was told that we need evidence that it works. I took it upon myself to find the evidence.  Now after extensive research spanning over 5 years, I have provided the scientific evidence that Yoga works and works well.  In fact I got the Best Research Award by the Yoga University for this work and have now several publications in International Peer Reviewed Journals.

I have inquiries from all over the world by other researchers and they are undertaking similar researches.  I had no knowledge about this article and came to know only when one of the readers from Hyderabad called me regarding this.  I am happy that I had nothing to do with the publication of this article and is published on its own based on the importance of the work.  This is quite a rarity in present times.

I have also tried yoga as an add on in the treatment of low backache,neck pain,osteoporosis,frozen shoulder,heel pain,tennis elbow,RSI,rheumatoid arthritis,fibromyalgia and have clinical researches going in in my hospital.  I also tried yoga on fresh fractures and have publications in the prestigious JACM journal showing fractures unite faster!!  In fact I am the first orthopedic surgeon in the world to try yoga therapy successfully in fresh fractures.  One student is doing a research on the effect of add on yoga therapy in the treatment of acute spinal cord injuries!!

So after these extensive researches and publications I have changed the term "Holistic" (This has a spiritual connotation and is dismissed as quackery by many ) to "WHO-listic" treatment which is more scientific and is based on WHO's definition of health.

Hope this will convince our friends about the changing trends of management of orthopedic problems.

Thanks and regards,

John Ebnezar
