Department of Orthopaedics
Orthopedics is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, correction, prevention, and treatment of patients with skeletal deformities – disorders of the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves and skin. These elements make up the musculoskeletal system.
Your body’s musculoskeletal system is a complex system of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves and allows you to move, work and be active. Once devoted to the care of children with spine and limb deformities, orthopedics now cares for patients of all ages, from newborns with clubfeet, to young athletes requiring arthroscopic surgery, to older people with arthritis.
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 favorite activities, as soon as possible. The Enhanced Recovery Program (ERP) comprises pre- and postoperative 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 a reduced hospital stay and early return 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.
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 neurosurgeons complement the trauma team to deliver excellent care.
We use the most advanced techniques in shoulder surgery. Our surgeons lead an unparalleled team of practitioners who combine clinical orthopedic surgery, rehabilitative sports medicine, physical and occupational therapy, and basic scientific research to provide the most advanced treatment to patients with shoulder disorders. Our goal is to provide the highest quality care for those experiencing discomfort due to a traumatic injury or degenerative disorder to give them relief from pain and renewed full shoulder function and mobility. Procedures such as injections, manipulations and advanced arthroscopic surgeries for impingement, AC joint arthritis, labral tears, shoulder instability, and rotator cuff problems are performed routinely.
WRIST & HAND SURGERY
Our team of qualified surgeons provides treatment for complex and routine wrist and hand problems including hand and wrist fractures, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis of the wrist and thumb joints, nerve injuries and tendon problems.
ORTHOPEDIC PROBLEMS IN CHILDREN

Hip and knee problems in children and adolescents are also managed.
