Dear Dr Kharat
I was extremely delighted to know that you have been appointed as a visiting joint
replacement surgeon at Raheja hospital at Mahim, Mumbai . You truly deserve to reach great positions and my heartiest congratulations for the same. I will definitely recommend you to all my friends and relatives for any orthopedic consultation or surgery.
I am writng this for the benefit of all the patients that may come to you.
In 2007 I fell down in the bathroom and broke my hip bone and needed emergency
surgery and hip replacement . I was admitted to Ruby hall clinic and Grant medical
foundation in Pune where Dr Kharat was to operate on me. I was quite apprehensive though my nephew who is CEO at that hospital assured me that he was very good.
I was in the xray room when he came to meet me he spoke very few words but so lovingly and caringly that I was prepared to be completely under his care. And what care and affection he has shown me and also towards all his patients is very rare to find in doctors today as patients have become moneymaking machines for them.
Dr Kharat was a doctor working in a British hospital but he opted to come to India and serve his country and bring up his children in Eastern culture like my husbandand I haddone many years back. After my operation the next day I was sitting and second day walking with the walker. I started doing exercises he recommended and also my own as I am Reebok certified fitness instructor. I came home on the 10th day and was asked to wear tight stockings for a month day and night. The same night I was so uncomfortable with October heat I had to call him middle of the night and very frightened I asked him if I could remove the stockings after apologizing for disturbing him at that unearthly hour.
And what he did was started laughing and told me he was not disturbed atall and if I felt confident as far as my walking and balance was concerned I could do so. I never touched those stockings after that. I was told to take care for 3 months not to let both knees touch eachother , not to cross legs which I did. But my whole life I have worked and been into social work so I was restless to go back. Within a month I called him again and asked if I could drive and he said if you feel confident do so and you will fly. I did exactly the same and never regretted . Apart from being not only one of the best but the best doctor to me he is a great human being. His approach to the patients gives them confidence in him. He has
performed some of the rarest operations at Ruby hall clinic one being on an Iranian boy and the article had appeared in all English papers. I was operated second time last year for my back operation and he has done a wonderful job , a stitchless operation and within 15 days I flew abroad for my granddaughters wedding . At the wedding I met a friend and colluege of my daughter who had the same problem and was already operated in England 3 times with no concrete result and was surprised to see me so fit so soon after the operation.
After the operation when I was in the recovery room with his phone camera he took a picture of me and him together and sent it to my daughter. Which doctor will do this onlyone who truly cares for his patients and their relatives as relatives are second order patients.
For this reason I will never go to any other orthopedic surgeon ever . Period.
Your truly grateful patient Mrs Aban P.Bhote. 77 years old.
Dr Kharat if you feel like you can display this letter at Raheja hospital and all the best in your
First of all I thank you for
all the cooperation and concern you had during the
admission of my dad. We took him back to my
native place and also he was able to attend the
function of my sister happily. Now he is not
at all taking any pain killers, he him self has
controled on that. He is able to bend the
knee about 110 degrees and that to within a span of
1 month which is really good. He is perfectly
fine with his heart as well and thanks to Ritu Madam
for her expert advice and coperation renedered.
I really thank you and happily say I that, you
are the Best doctor we have met. The best
part I liked was you never miss to keep us updated
and also never miss to answer our calls and
messages. Because of your such a good
attitude everything went so well that we didnt
realise it was such a major operation.
really a good job you are doing, even my dad never
stops telling about you to all those whoever came to
meet him. He even saw those photos sent by
you and shows them to many people..

the TKR. Any time any body needs any thing to
know on you can give them my no. I will happily
Thank you very much for
Proud daughter of Basappa Malode(your Patient).
Dear Dr. Kharat,
I’m a 65 year old American woman living near Ahmednagar, about 2 ½ hours away from Pune. I knew that knee surgery was inevitable but I, like many others, put it off as long as possible. But I finally got to the point where I was quite disabled and in pain most of the time so I did some research and decided to have a knee replacement with Dr. Kiran Kharat at Aditya Birla Hospital. It was an excellent choice. Not only were the surgeon and the hospital outstanding, the nursing and other staff could not have been better! The PT department was also amazing and since the long-term success of joint replacements depends on the skills of the Physio Therapists and well as the surgeon, I felt very fortunate to have such a great team.
I'm now 7 weeks post- op and I'm doing very well. I still have to do PT 4 times a day plus a long, brisk walk or other aerobic activity every day. I’m also able to practice yoga again. I'm down to one PT appointment per week and I'm off pain-killers, except for the occasional Advil or Brufin. I'm so glad it's over and the worst is behind me! I have more mobility than I've had in about 10 years and I can comfortably climb stairs and do other things that were extremely painful before my surgery. The first few weeks were tough but now I’m at the payoff point – there’s very little discomfort and it’s easy to see that it’s all been well worth it.
Dear Dr. Kharat,
Amazing Photos. What a happy patient. I am truly impressed
with the quality of care and communication with me. It is
rare to find physicians with the sincerity and compassion
you and your team have shown. Kiran, you definitely have
your priorities in line and I am honored to have you as my
mother's surgeon. Please also pass on my appreciation to Dr.
Sachin and the rest of your team. I hope we can meet when I
visit Pune in mid June.
Dear Dr. Kharat,
I write on behalf of my father, Mr. Rajkumar Gupta who underwent total
replacement of the right shoulder at Ruby Hall Clinic on 11th Dec. 2009.
It is almost 6 months now and my father has received a re-energised and
painfree life after 20 years of agony and all because of you.
He is undergoing physiotherapy and has recovered 70% motion in the shoulder. .
He has started rotating it also to some extent and I am sure it will become
only better. His posture has improved and is generally more cheerful.
We had recently been to Singapore and a cruise thereon for a holiday and he
enjoyed phenomenally, thanks to you.
Earlier, I have seen him spend sleepless nights twisting and turning in bed
due to pain in his right shoulder , which was earlier diagnosed as frozen
shoulder but after meeting you came across as arthritis.
The comfort which we got after meeting you and
in the professional manner i n
which you answered
all our queries, helped him make up his mind for the
surgery. The entire recovery process was
unimaginably comfortable and was as
was told to us. A big thank you to the Ruby Hall
sisters who were very caring,
compassionate and just wonderful.
Please accept my heartfelt regards and thanks . We are indebted to you for
taking care of my father and curing him of long years of pain.
My parents would be honoured to host you ,if you were to visit Alwar ,

Dear Dr. Kharat,
Today I have arrived back to New Jersey
from my three week trip to India . During
this short time, I criss-crossed India and traveled
to Delhi, Pune, Kolkata, Jorhat, Siliguri,
Darjeeling , and Ambala Cantt,. Every third
day I was on the plane to visit the next place.
Needless to say, the highlight of my tour and
the soul purpose of my trip was to visit
Pune and to support my sister through her bilateral
knee replacement. Although Shriram Bagle
had told me many good things about you, including
your extensive operating experience and the hospital's
wonderful reputation, I now have had the
good fortune to experience this first hand.
The minute my sister met you she was relieved,
her apprehension turned into hope, and she
was very comfortable with you. I too
felt confident knowing my sister was in the hands
of a skilled, concerned, and compassionate
I am very thankful that you were the surgeon who
operated on my sister's knees. My sister
and I are very pleased with the outcome of the
surgery! Her rehabilitation is going well
as she is getting daily physical therapy. Soon, I hope that she will be able to perform
her daily life activities.
We are very pleased with your work, my sister cannot
not stop talking about you; she is constantly
ranting and raving about you.
Again, thank you for being so cooperative
concerned, and going out of the way to make
sure that my sister was at ease and recovering
well. Your talent and professionalism are
very much appreciated. Also, please send
a special thank you to the hospital staff.
They were very caring, compassionate, and helpful.
You and the hospital staff have earned the
highest regard from my sister and have addressed
all of her concerns.
We are truly grateful for all that you and your
staff have done for us! If you happen to
visit USA , we would be honored to have you over.
With Kind Regards,
Dr Kiran Kharat,
Ruby hall clinic and Grant medical foundation,

No words are enough to thank you and your team of
doctors and other aides for showing empathy,
compassion, love, and guidance in my recent
predictment when you sir operated on me for hip
replacement after an accidental fall in my home in
Compared to the callous attitude of doctors I really
went through agony for some hours before I was
brought to Ruby hall and in your safe hands I was
very happy and peaceful.
Your approach to your patient the first time
inspired in me courage and confidence and with my
positive attitude, determination and cooperation I
am on my road to recovery very fast.
Also as I am a fitness instructor, nutritionist and
aroma therapist I am aware of all physio exercises
and my level of endurance and flexibility is very
Whenever I have a problem I will take the
opportunity of consulting you which I hope you will
not mind. Last word England's loss is India's gain.
Thanking you once again,
Mrs. A. P. Bhote
Sub- Letter of appreciation
On behalf of my mother-in-law Mrs Deepa Khiani who underwent Total Knee Replacement for both her legs on Jan 10th and March 04th 2008 respectively.
Needless to say it all started when she first met you on 05 th Jan 2008 and was not at all ready to undergo the surgery, but it all changed in 15 minutes when she interacted with you personally and felt the comfort level. We all suggested her to take a second opinion but all in vain, it was kind of magic that played in her mind and she now for a change wanted to get the surgery done as soon as possible and from you only.
I am very thankful that you were the surgeon who operated my mother-in-law's knees. She is very pleased with the outcome of both the surgeries. Her rehabilitation is going absolutely fantastic. Soon, I believe she will be able to perform her daily activities and that even without any pain.
My mother-in-law and my husband Arun Khiani who also underwent knee Arthroscopy cannot stop talking about you and are prasing you with whomsoever they interact. Sir, this is sheer believe that we have in you.
Again, thank you for being so cooperative and concerned and going out of your way to make sure that she was at ease and recovered well. Your talent and professionalism is alot appreciated, also please send a special thank you to all the sisters and head matron of SR-5 ( Ruby Hall Clinic ) who took wonderful care of her at all times and that even with a grin on their face, this is what a patient requires the most.They were absolutely wonderful at all times.
Do let us know if at all you visit Kolkata. We will be most happy to serve you.
Best wishes to you and your family. Thanks once again for all your efforts.
Thank you !!
Chanchal A. Khiani
