Orthopaedic & Joint Replacement

Orthopaedics is a field of medicine that deals with the diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. This system includes the bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, nerves and muscles. This important complex system is the basis for our movement, bending, jumping, walking, lifting etc to perform various daily life activities. Orthopaedic doctors may treat the patient surgically or otherwise depending on the extent of injury or disability.

We at GNDSSH believe that correct diagnosis of problem is the key to successful treatment. The Orthopaedic doctors at GNDSSH also believe that surgery is not the end of orthopaedic care, but to rehabilitate the patient into daily life. Our approach is holistic and evidence based. GNDSSH is equipped with state of the art technology to care for its patients. Correct diagnosis is established by taking full history from the patient and by investigating with the latest equipment. Appropriate customized treatment planning is done by the orthopaedic doctor who then counsels the patient and his/ her attendants. The skilled and compassionate nurses and other paramedical staff take care of the patient in the post operative period. The treatment is concluded with education regarding prevention of the problem and home care.
