We cover an extensive field ranging from primary to revision arthroplasty of the hip , knee and shoulder, arthroscopic surgeries of the shoulder and knee, the whole spectrum of trauma, paediatricorthopaedics, deformity correction and foot & ankle surgeries Along with a highly motivated and skilled physiotherapy department,
Joint Replacement surgery evidences this most dramatically. Around 20 surgeries annually, we are using a variety of the latest implants available in the international market designed to permit more stability while allowing a wider range of motion. Alongside superior materials and designs mimicking the natural, these ensure a more lasting, better result. These include (among others ) different metals, cemented/uncemented,different interfaces eg: Porous coating to allow better bone ingrowths, Oxinium for less friction, different interface eg: metal on polyethylene, ceramic on poly,ceramic on ceramic, mobile bearing surfaces ,high cross linked poly to decrease wear and more complicated rotating hinged devices.
