    Our Specialities

    Total Knee Replacement

    When your knee doesn’t respond to medications and treatments, knee replacement surgery is an option. There are two types: total knee replacement and partial knee replacement.

    Knee replacement is a surgical procedure wherein the worn out articular surfaces of the thigh bone ( Femur ) and the leg bone(Tibia), are shaved off and replaced with an artificial prosthesis.

    Total Hip Replacement

    In total hip replacement, the Femoral head is replaced with an artificial stem and ball. The Acetabulum is replaced with a metallic cup and ceramic or poly liner.

    One of the largest joints in the body, the hip is a ball and socket joint. The ball at end of the femur (thigh bone) articulates with the cup in the Pelvis to form the Hip Joint.

    Bands of tissue called ligaments (the hip capsule) connect the ball (Femur) to the socket (Pelvis) and provide stability to the hip joint.

    Trauma Surgery

    Surgical treatment for  injuries to the musculoskeletal system, such as fractures or dislocations and soft tissue injuries in the bones, joints and their associated structures that enable movement such as ligaments

    Surgical treatment for injuries to the musculoskeletal system, such as fractures or dislocations and soft tissue injuries in the bones, joints and their associated structures that enable movements such as ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves is Trauma Surgery.

    Spine Surgery

    Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is also called less invasive spine surgery. In the spine surgical procedures, surgeons use specialized instruments to access the spine through small incisions.

    In a traditional open surgery, a 5 to 6 inch long incision is made, then the muscles are moved to the side in order to see the spine. The surgeon now accesses the spine to remove diseased and damaged bone or intervertebral disks. The surgeon places screws, cages, and any bone graft materials necessary for the treatment and thereby improve healing.


    Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure used to diagnose & treat problems inside joints. The term Arthroscopy literally means to “look within the joint”. The procedure clearly shows the structures inside a joint.

    The arthroscope is attached to a miniature television screen on which the surgeon observes the damaged joint through a very small incision as opposed to a larger surgical incision.
