Services & Procedures

Joint Replacement Surgery

Total and partial knee and hip joint replacement surgeries are routinely performed at Srikara Hospitals, India. We have a team of experienced and expert surgeons with caring and specially trained nurses, therapists and technicians. Our surgeons have expertise in complex cases and revision (re-doing) of failed joint replacements. Our goal is to provide seamless, coordinated care to ensure that patients return to pursuing their favourite activities, as soon as possible. The Enhanced Recovery Program (ERP) comprises pre- and post- operative measures and is devised to provide maximum comfort and convenience to patients. It helps the patients to get back on their feet soon, resulting in reduced hospital stay and early return to home. The subspecialty Knee Replacement Surgery in Hyderabad and all other Srikara Hospitals across India includes the Enhanced Recovery Program.

 Arthroscopy & Sports Injuries

Sports injuries to the hip, shoulder, elbow, wrist, foot and ankle are treated with both surgical and non-surgical methods. The team at the Institute of Orthopedics excels in arthroscopic surgery — an advanced surgical technique that allows orthopedic surgeons to see inside a joint, without having to surgically open it up. The diagnostic capability of arthroscopy is highly precise in diagnosing damage to the bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and muscles that make up a joint. Our experienced team of doctors uses the latest and most sophisticated arthroscopic equipment to ensure the best possible diagnosis and treatment. Most surgeries can be performed as day care surgeries, offering reduced costs and early return to functionality. The common conditions treated are meniscal tears, osteochondral defects and ligament injuries of the knee, concentrating on ACL reconstruction.

Trauma Services

We provide complete care for adult patients and children for fractures, dislocations and multiple injuries, severe musculoskeletal injuries and related complications. A multidisciplinary team consisting of qualified emergency physicians, as well as general, vascular, plastic and neuro surgeons complement the trauma team to deliver excellent care.
