20 minute treatment for the athlete’s injury- partial anterior cruciate ligament tear

· Uncategorized · No Comments


The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of a pair of ligaments (the other being the posterior cruciate ligament) in the knee.

The two ligaments are also called cruciform ligaments, as they are arranged in a crossed formation.

The anterior cruciate ligament is one of the four main ligaments of the knee  and is one of the key ligaments that help stabilize your knee joint. The ACL connects your thighbone (femur) to your shinbone (tibia).

Anterior cruciate ligament injury is when the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is either stretched, partially torn, or completely torn.  Symptoms include pain, a popping sound during injury, instability of the knee, and joint swelling. 

It’s most commonly torn during sports that involve sudden stops and changes in direction — such as football, basketball, netball etc.

Treating partial anterior ligament tears with intraligamentary plasma rich has proven successful in many cases.  This is a 20 minute procedure conducted at the clinic.  Dr Sanjay Nadkarni has been performing this procedure for over 7 years, since it was first introduced.

A recent study published in the World Journal of Orthopaedics showed excellent results for this procedure. Click here to view the full study.

Pelvic Congestion Syndrome – as seen on Today Tonight

· Uncategorized · No Comments

Adelaide suffered from chronic pelvic pain for years after her pregnancies.  After many GP and Specialist visits, Adelaide still had no answers as to what was causing her chronic pain.  It was even suggested that Adelaide look at a mental health care plan.  Deciding to take matters into her own hands Adelaide took to the internet to conduct her own research, stumbling across Dr Sanjay Nadkarni’s website

Adelaide finally had the answer to her chronic pain that she had been looking for.

Dr Sanjay Nadkarni was able to diagnose and treat Adelaide’s condition and restore her quality of life.

It took two minimally invasive procedures and Dr Sanjay Nadkarni interviewed Adelaide pre- operation and post operation for each procedure.  We will be posting these in a series of blogs.

If you are suffering chronic pelvic pain, you are not alone.  This condition is extremely common in women post pregnancy.  Get a referral from your GP to see Dr Sanjay Nadkarni.

Radial Artery Puncture Procedure – first in WA

· Uncategorized · No Comments

Congratulations to our very own Dr Sanjay Nadkarni who on Friday, April 6 became the first ever Interventional Radiologist in Western Australia to perform a radial artery puncture procedure as part of a uterine artery embolisation.

Uterine fibroids are extremely common in women and if left untreated can continue to grow in size and number.

This procedure allows patients to sit up and even walk almost immediately and in most cases the patient will be home the same day. Dr Nadkarni asked us to give a shout out to the interventional radiology department at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital who have been offering world class care to patients for 25 years.

Varicose Veins increase the risk of DVT by 5 times!

· Uncategorized · No Comments

Varicose veins are NOT just a cosmetic issue. New research shows that people suffering from varicose veins are 5 times more likely to develop a DVT (deep vein thrombosis) which can result in amputation or even death and 2 times more likely to develop a pulmonary embolism which can also be fatal. With so many minimally invasive, non surgical vein treatments available there is no reason to risk your health.

As quoted in the article;


  • Varicose veins increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) by five times
  • DVT is a clot in the legs, which can lead to amputation or even death 
  • Varicose veins make people twice as likely to develop a pulmonary embolism
  • This is a clot that travels to the lung and can be life-threatening
  • Varicose veins double peripheral artery disease’s risk, which reduces blood flow

Dr Nadkarni at the 1st Biobridge Asia Pacific Conference on PRP ( Platelet Rich Plasma ) with key note speaker Dr Stanley Lam from Hong Kong .

Stanley is a pioneer and expert in hydro dissection of nerves and tendons using PRP.

For those of you who are not aware there has been a revolution in the development of regenerative biological therapies for the treatment of degenerative and inflammatory conditions .

I have been using it in my practice since it’s inception . For properly selected patients and good rehab programmes following treatment the results are good . The evidence base is growing and experts like Stanley are educating other physicians in the various applications.

Looking forward to incorporating hydro dissection in troublesome pain cases. – Dr Sanjay Nadkarni

This is Dr Wayne Yakes all the way from Texas.

He is one of the world authorities on the treatment of Vascular Malformations. He has his own take on the classification of Arterio Venous Malformations, “The Yakes Classification.”

I caught up with Dr Mark Meissner , an eminent vascular surgeon from Seattle at the recent UIP (World Congress of Phlebology).

Dr Meissner has been instrumental in making Pelvic Congestion Syndrome more recognisable amongst Doctors and Specialists and is considered one of the world authorities on the subject.

I really enjoy listening to his presentations and we share some common thoughts on the definitions and management of Pelvic Venous Disorders – Dr Sanjay Nadkarni
