amrutha-hospital-img The main focus of the Orthopaedic surgery department is the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of diseases of the bones, joints, ligament, muscles, tendons and nerves. These specialists employ medical, physical, rehabilitation and surgery to restore normal function of the patients.

It is estimated that approximately half of an orthopaedic surgeon’s practice is devoted to non‐surgical or medical management of injuries and disease, and half to surgical treatments.

Orthopaedic surgeons treat diseases and conditions. such as

  •   Fractures and dislocations
  •   Torn ligaments, sprains and strains
  •   Tendon injuries, pulled muscles and bursitis
  •   Ruptured disks, sciatica, lower back pain and scoliosis
  •   Abnormalities of the fingers and toes
  •   Surgical management of degenerative joint disease
  •   Arthritis and osteoporosis
  •   Bone tumours, muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy
  •   Club feet and unequal leg length
  •   Trauma and critical care

Orthopaedic surgeons might also engage in a broad practice or may focus on a narrower area of special interest, such as the spine, hip, foot, hand or sports medicine. It is a dynamic field that has witnessed much advancement in techniques and equipment, such as microsurgery and joint replacements.
