Not many surgeons in Mumbai can perform simultaneous knee replacement surgery and have their patients back on their feet in a few days. But our top-notch orthopaedic physicians, backed by 25 years of experience, routinely treat the most complex cases with skill and ease.

Our Department of Orthopaedics achieves its impressive results by staying on top of the latest advancements in arthroscopy, joint replacement, joint resurfacing, cartilage grafting and other procedures and meets every challenge with innovative solutions.

But we do not stop there. Holy Family Hospital, Mumbai, provides all our orthopaedic patients with excellent rehabilitative care. We work closely with the hospital's departments of imaging, physiotherapy and anaesthesia specialists to offer a complete rehabilitation plan.

With every shattered hip we replace and every arthritic joint we fix , we chalk up another success story.

ADVANCED PROCEDURES

Trauma Care

High-velocity, high-energy trauma due to accidents and occupational hazards has risen sharply in the last decade and our Emergency Department is fully equipped to handle any type of trauma case. We have a round-the-clock emergency service with an Intensive Care Unit and intensivists for the best critical care available during the critical 'golden first hour' of trauma. Emergency care is backed by our Blood Bank, which is open 24x7.

Joint Replacement & Arthroscopy

We rank among the best medical facilities / hospitals in Mumbai for joint implants - joint replacement, simultaneous ACL/PCL reconstruction and joint resurfacing surgery - as well as minimally invasive procedures such as arthroscopy. Using high-end equipment and foreign implants, during either conventional surgery or arthroscopic procedures, we restore normal mobility to our patients regardless of the complexity of the case. Many arthroscopic procedures are now day-care surgeries and are conducted on all types of joints including the knee, shoulder, hip, ankle and wrist.

All our implants are of high quality, with a track record of 95 per cent survival and we have not had a single case of revision replacement.

Osteoarthrosis of the knee comprises the bulk of our out-patient cases and at least 30 per cent of patients require knee and hip replacement surgeries.

Joint replacement and arthroscopy are at the forefront of modern orthopaedic surgery and our surgeons, physiotherapists, rehabilitation therapists and nurses provide comprehensive services for these procedures.

Osteoporosis & Metabolic Bone Disease

With every major osteoporosis fracture, the risk of death doubles. One out of eight men and one out of three women in India suffers from osteoporosis, giving India the dubious distinction of having the largest number of such cases in the world.

Deformity Correction & Limb Lengthening

Our department is also skilled in correcting deformities arising out of either birth defects, infection, cancer or injury. We use the Ilizarov Fixator extensively in the management of these conditions.

Spinal Correction

Our specialists treat the complete range of spinal conditions including degenerative spine diseases, disorders arising out of bone & joint infections such as tuberculosis and osteomyelitis and slipped lumbar disc and instability of the spine, among other conditions.

Sports Medicine

Sports injuries are routine among athletes and others who consider physical fitness high priority. These injuries usually have a definite pattern. Our orthopaedic specialists have the expertise to treat all types of sports injuries, returning our patients to normal functional levels.

Muscle Injuries

Muscle contusions of the spine, hip, leg and knee and ankle ligament sprains comprise the majority of these cases. They are typically treated with medication, rest, splintage and physiotherapy.

Shoulder Injuries

Shoulder injuries occur due to a variety of reasons including trauma, bad posture and ageing. We successfully treat all shoulder injuries including dislocation, rotator cuff tears, frozen shoulder and calcification of the shoulder.
