The Department of Orthopedic Surgery provides diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system, including the bones and joints of the arms, legs, and spine, and nerves, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

Some of the common orthopedic conditions treated in our hospital:

  • Fractures
  • Road traffic accidents
  • Sports Injuries
  • Musculoskeletal Trauma
  • Degenerative Diseases
  • Congenital Disorders

Common Surgical Procedures Done

Total knee replacement: When knee replacement surgery is performed, the cartilage of the knee joint is replaced with a metal and plastic implant. Sometimes, the artificial joint is anchored in place with bone cement or a material is used that allows the bone tissue to grow into it.

Total hip replacement: The procedure involves removing the ball and socket of a joint and inserting a new ball and socket to allow movement at the new joint. There are many types of total hip replacement implant options including the type of material (metal and ceramic), and how the implant is designed to work.

Spine surgery: Spine surgery is done only if more conservative treatment, such as medication or physical therapy, don’t work. These include such common procedures as laminectomy, diskectomy, fusion, and spinal decompressions. Kyphoplasty is a less-invasive technique for the pain of spinal fractures often caused by osteoporosis.

Arthritis Surgery: Joint surgery for arthritis depends on the location and severity of the pain. Hip and knee surgeries are most common, but some procedures can also be used for the ankles, wrists, fingers and thumbs.

Some of the most common procedures performed to treat arthritis include:

  • Arthrodesis: fusing the bones of a joint together for improved stability and effective pain relief
  • Arthroscopy: minimally invasive procedure that allows for careful examination and minor repairs, such as removing torn cartilage or bone ends
  • Osteotomy: involves cutting or repositioning the bone to restore proper alignment and treat osteoarthritis
  • Resection: removal of part or all of a bone for diseased joints that helps improve function and relieve pain
  • Synovectomy: removal of the synovium or tissue lining to reduce pain and swelling and slow the progression of the disease

Total joint replacement is considered a last resort option for treating arthritis, and involves removing the damaged bones and tissues and replacing them with synthetic materials to stimulate the natural behavior of the joint.


C-Arm: It is a medical imaging device that is based on X-ray technology and can be used flexibly in various ORs. The name is derived from the C-shaped arm used to connect the X-ray source and X-ray detector to one another.

Stryker’s Integrated Arthroscopy System: It provides a complete solution for today’s advanced arthroscopic procedures with best-in-class powered instruments, fluid management and bipolar RF ablation technology.
