Review of Dr. Ranawat


Seriously injured me alongside his PA Dr Rachel Taylor. I have EDS and I will never forget January 2015 when my life changed forever. The story is a long one but they extended me beyond my physiologic range and tore both my hip labrums. I have suffered chronic pain since then and went from being a regular gym goer and being able to sit cross legged to never being able to take this position again or walk without pain. Absolutely horrific.

Review of Dr. Ranawat

-Middletown, CT |

He was my fourth knee replacement surgeon whose opinion I was seeking for. He did not touch my leg, he refused to answer my questions or discuss my concerns, he spent max 2-3 min with me obviously showing anger even being in the exam room. I left devastated, frustrated, confused and truly in tears, despite the fact he decided to schedule my surgery for October. He does up to 8 knee replacements per day, and it scaries me --I am not a part of his assembly line, esp. with such complicated case

Dr. Ranawat is an outstanding surgeon who performed arthroscopic surgery on my son who had a labral tear of the hip. His recovery took time and Dr. Ranawat and his great team helped him get to wear he is today-running, playing basketball, and doing the things he loves again! Excellent and immediate response and communication with his patients! Thank you to Rachael and Paul -amazing people of this team as well! Thank you to a great team and hospital-HSS!!

The best of the best. Amar did both of my knee replacements in 2004 and 2005 at Lenox Hill. I found he and his Staff to be courteous, knowledgeable and very professional. So much so that I sort him out once again in March 2017 to do my hip replacement at HSS rather than a doctor closer to home in NJ. I HAVE NOT BEEN DISAPPOINTED WITH MY DECISION. My remaining hip may need replacing sooner than later and I will return to the Ranawat practice.

Review of Dr. Ranawat

- in New York, NY |

I suffered a slip and fall that resulted in torn hamstrings and trauma to my sciatic nerve. Dr. Ranawat and his team were phenomenal!!! As a World Trade Center Responder, i had pre-existing health concerns which Dr. Ranawat planned for and addressed. He even brought in a microsurgeon to ensure all the scar tissue could be removed without damage to the sciatic nerve. The entire hospital staff was amazing and i am so very grateful. Thank you all for the miracles you do!!

Review of Dr. Ranawat

- in Rockaway Beach, NY 11693 |

I visited him for a checkup yesterday. I had two total knee replacements done by Dr. Chitranjan Ranawat in the Hosp. for Special Surgery in 2012. He was so kind, caring, attentive and answered my questions with patience and smiles. He was thorough and compassionate, and very highly respected by all in the hospital. Everything he explained and he followed up my care in the hospital. I went to rehab after both, and now, in 2017, at the age of 72, still feel fine, at least my knees feel fine.

-Easton, CT |

I met with Dr. Ranawat regarding treatment options for hip arthritis. I felt his answers to my questions were kurt, dismissive, and unsupported by factual information.

Review of Dr. Ranawat

- in Morristown, NJ |

A terrible doctor and extremely arrogant who tore my hip labrums during a physical exam and then tried to tell me I already had a tear when I used to walk limitless amounts. I went in for a right hip clicking that caused no pain but I have Ehlers Danlos and wanted to be diligent checking out body parts. He then tore my left hip labrum and I could not walk for 5 months. I will live with this forever and he should not be practicing medicine.

Review of Dr. Ranawat

- in New York, NY |

He never mentioned a gluteus maximus tear prior to hip replacement surgery, only told me about reatachment of the muscle after surgery. Made no attempt to stablize re-attachment after surgery. Never found out if tear was present before surgery or done during surgery. Attachment did not hold and muscle atrophied. Didn't want to hear anything about complaints, just said there was nothing that could be done. Was walking better before hip replacement surgery than after.
