Success Stories

Dr Abhijit pawar

My wife Pramila shinde had spinal tuberculosis and she was bed ridden due to paralysis. Paralysis at such young age and her life became miserable. We met doctor Abhijit Pawar who went out of the way to help us. She underwent a successful spine surgery with instrumentation with Dr Abhijit Pawar. Within one week after surgery her condition improved. She is completely normal now and we have a great family life. Thank you Dr Abhijit Pawar and Endo-Spine Clinic.
