The Department of Orthopaedics in Amandeep Hospital has a reputation for excellence in teaching, research and patient care. Our orthopedic care is delivered with the expertise, innovation and commitment you would expect from a hospital. The Department consists of 7 faculty, 4 residents. The Department of Orthopaedics has expertise in every orthopaedic subspecialty. Inpatient services are divided into teams that care for general and specialized orthopaedic patients. The divisions are: Knee Replacement, Joint replacement, Trauma, Arthroscopic and Sports Injuries, Oncology, Foot and Ankle Surgery, Paediatrics, Reconstructive Surgery The Department of Orthopaedics Cover the Following subspecialties
Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery is an evolution and a boon for the people who are in misery suffering from knee problems. It has brought new innovation and stimulated the growth of Orthopedics field. The surgeons can effectively operate with least chances of errors. It has surpassed other methodologies and is continuing doing so. Here the surgeon uses the handheld robotics to shape the surrounding bone before placing the knee implant. A 3D representation of knee profile is created which is used by the surgeon to determine the size and position of the implant. The results of this surgery are more accurate and reliable as it is possible to target only the damaged bone with exact precision. It assists both in partial and total knee replacement
Every year, thousands of people sustain critical injuries as a result of accidents. Injury to the musculoskeletal system from traumatic events such as motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle crashes, falls, and work injury may be potentially devastating to a person’s lifestyle and career. Working with efficiency, care, and well designed surgical technique may be critical to a patient’s recovery and return to the community. When multiple traumas, fractures, sprains and other bone and soft tissue injuries are suffered, the patient often requires the immediate attention of the orthopaedic trauma surgeon.
The Division of Orthopaedic Trauma is one of the larger divisions within the Department. Intramedullary nailing is an area of specialization the Division employs in the treatment of long bone injuries. The Division also concentrates on the management of complex periarticular and pelvic fractures. Some of the more common surgical techniques in the treatment of fractures include internal fixation (aligning and immobilizing the break using plates and screws or a rod) and external fixation (inserting pins into the bone through the skin and applying a metal frame around the limb).
Trauma specialists seek to assist patients in regaining function that has been lost despite some of the most complex acute orthopaedic challenges.
Bones have a great capacity to heal themselves with proper treatment but sometimes the damaged or the broken bones may fail to repair. This non-healing of bones leads to non-union of bones.
Many factors contribute towards this critical situation some of which are an infection, interrupted blood flow, separation of the ends of bones, lack of stability in the fractured bone. It becomes mandatory to know the reason to determine the best treatment for the same.
Under the expertise of Dr. Avtar Singh, curing non-union of bones is done with world-class treatments and exceptional services of the professionals.
The Division of Arthroscopy and Sports Injuries is comprised of Orthopaedic Surgeons who have a subspecialty interest in the treatment of the musculoskeletal problems of active people. While the care of “elite” athletes is part of the practice of sport medicine orthopaedic surgeons, the majority of the practice involves keeping all members of the public active so they can enjoy a high quality of life. The diagnosis and treatment of orthopaedic injuries has been revolutionized by a surgical technique known as arthroscopy. Using an arthroscope, inserted into the joint cavity through a small incision, the orthopedist can get a detailed view of the entire joint, which is displayed on a television screen in the operating room. Using this minimally invasive surgical technique, the surgeon can investigate, diagnose and immediately treat many conditions, eliminating the need for more major open surgery. Furthermore, this surgery can be performed in an ambulatory setting eliminating the need for hospital admission. Recovery is hastened by minimally invasive surgery such as arthroscopy.
The human foot is a complex structure made up of 26 bones, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles. In addition to treating fractures and dislocations, the orthopaedic surgeon is also concerned with a wide variety of foot and ankle problems, including abnormalities of the ankle, hindfoot and midfoot; diabetic foot problems; rheumatoid arthritis; and other inflammatory arthritic conditions. A variety of surgical techniques – including joint replacement, arthroscopy, arthrodesis, osteotomy and synovectomy – are used to relieve pain, correct deformities and increase mobility of the joint.
This department deals in the diagnosis, management, decision making, and surgical techniques associated with limb lengthening and reconstruction. The Ilizarov method is extensively used in addition to more conventional approaches.
