Overview

The Orthopaedic Department at Manipal Hospitals offers all kinds of surgical and non-surgical treatments for conditions affecting the bones, joints and spine (musculoskeletal system). The skeletal system provides shape and support to the body but sometimes succumbs to fractures due to injuries sustained from falls, accidents and other trauma. Fractures need varying degrees of medical help depending on their complexity. Other than fractures, bones and joints are also affected by different kinds of degenerative diseases such as Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ligament Tear and Cartilage Degeneration. These have to be dealt with by partial or complete replacement of the particular joint, knee, hip, ankle, shoulder etc. Congenital defects such as club foot, hip dysplasia and muscular dystrophy require surgical intervention and physiotherapy to put patients back on their feet.

 

The Orthopaedic Department at Manipal Hospitals effectively caters to all the above mentioned problems. It is considered to be the best in Bangalore for all orthopaedic treatments and procedures. The ultra-modern orthopaedic operation theatres are fitted with the laminar airflow system that keeps them germ-free, thus eliminating the risk of infection.

The Orthopaedic nursing staff are trained in the latest methods for pre and post operative care and support the patients through physiotherapy and rehabilitation. Neurosurgical services, intensive care services and anaesthesiology provide the necessary support and back-up for the department.
