Healthy joints are an essential part of healthy body and mind. Many diseases of the joints and aging make the joint movement stiff, painful and limbs may even get deformed. Restricted and painful mobility leads to unhappiness and affects the body as a whole. Technological advances in surgical science have allowed us to offer safe surgical treatments with reproducible results to patients with joint diseases and make mobility as painfree and as unlimited as possible.
Sports injuries, both professional and recreational, are becoming more and more common and they can spoil the career of a sportperson. Our team has been providing treatment for sports related joint injuries with minimally invasive techniques coupled with sound rehabilitation protocols individualized to patient's need and demand. Our motto is "Disability to Mobility"
We use latest technology and techniques that allow us to give a better, quicker, safer and longer lasting results to our patients with joint disorders. "Fast-Track" is an approach where a patient is allowed to walk after a couple of hours of surgery that reduces the chances of complication like DVT, chest and urinary complication. It gives patients much needed confidence and morale boost that helps in a better and quicker rehabilitation. Our techniques are soft-tissue friendly and we use various blood loss reduction modalities that has reduced our patients' blood transfusion requirements to almost negligible rates. We use accelerator based navigation technology for our total knee replacement surgeries. This helps us to improve our precision and almost a zero-error alignment is achieved in all cases. It has been shown that mechnical alignment of knee prosthesis is the single most important factor in predicting the long-term success of the implant. Our pain specialists strive very hard to give you a painfree post-operative period during which you can comfortably start your day-to-day activities. At the time of discharge, the patients are able to walk with minimum support, use toilet without assistance and climb stairs.
The treatment is individualized to suit the anatomy, demands and social conditions of each patient; suitable implants and techniques are advised that give much superior functional outcome. We use latest implants and technology that allow the implants to have a long life and they usually last a lifetime.
