Fracture And Trauma Surgery

We provide round the clock (24 hours) trauma care. We have excellent ambulance facilities which are provided with Radiofrequency communication system. We have excellent accident and emergency department in which primary care is given to the patients. We have a multi bedded ICU to provide emergency care and post operative care.
Fractures are treated quickly and efficiently in par with international standards with latest implants and equipments. Operation is done with minimally invasive technique that produces very small scar and quick recovery of patients.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

In keeping with the latest development in the field of trauma and orthopaedic surgery, minimally invasive surgery is performed routinely in our departments. Surgeries are performed through key-hole incision which helps the patients recover faster and leaves a very small scar that is cosmetically aesthetic. Fractures of thigh, leg and arm bones are routinely treated in this manner.

Spine Surgery

Spinal problems like back pain, disc disease and trauma are treated by our specially trained orthopaedic surgeons. Disc removal is done through a very small incision which helps in quick rehabilitation of the patients. Neurosurgery and physiotherapy back up helps in efficient patient care and patient satisfaction.

Joint Replacement Surgery

“Movement is Life”. To meet all kinds of degenerative problems in Geriatric population, we have a fully trained and equipped unit performing all kinds of joint replacement surgeries at a very nominal cost.

Arthroscopy

Key hole surgery as we call is talk of the day. All surgeons are becoming less invasive (smaller scar) and patients prefer shorter stay in hospitals .Sports injuries like ligament injuries and meniscal injuries are given a special focus in our hospital with arthroscopic surgery - a sibling of minimally invasive surgery concept in Orthopaedics. We do ligament reconstructive surgeries and use Arthroscopic assistance whenever necessary.
