      I had seen many ortho surgeons before receiving a recommendation for Dr. Ghate. From the very moment I met him I knew this is the doctor for me. I began my treatments with injections which actually worked just fine, never once did he push surgery. Finally in June of 2015 I decided it was time to take permanent care of my left knee.He has a great bedside manner, explains the knee replacement procedure in a concise and understandable manner. Dr. Ghate always takes his time with you.

      Dr. Ghate is a great doctor, He takes time to explain every step in the process and is incredibly patient. He took the time to follow up multiple visits even after the surgery. I'll definitely recommend him to anyone I know. Thank him again.

      He took the time during surgery (2 hours longer than anticipated) to get my knee just right. It has been ten years since total replacement, and I can work out like a teenager, while I could barely walk before the surgery. Amazing.
      in Wilmette, IL |
      My experience with Dr. Ghate has been excellent. Since my two knee replacements, I have recommended him to a number of friends who, in turn, have been extremely satisfied with their results. He has a great bedside manner, explains the knee replacement procedure in a concise and understandable manner. Dr. Ghate always takes his time with you at your appointments. His staff is also quite helpful and courteous. I couldn't recommend a surgeon more highly.
      in Mount Prospect, Il |
      He has done both my complete knee replacements...he and his staff are excellent! Appointments are easy to get...wait times very minimal. His nurse is phenomenal...always returns calls, listens patiently, very reassuring and informative. He is an excellent surgeon and I felt very at ease and comfortable placing my life in his hands.

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Ghate's Care Philosophy

      My goal is to understand my patients' needs and work with them to return them to their active lifestyles. This can involve therapies ranging from physical therapy to surgical intervention. When it comes to surgical intervention my goal is to understand the patient's needs and goals and use that to formulate a treatment plan that best fits them.
