This department is well equipped for all orthopaedic surgeries ranging from Hand Surgery, Trauma Surgery, Spine Surgery, Joint Replacement, Arthroscopic Surgery, Paediatric Surgery and Cold orthopaedics including diseases and deformities.
With the number of accident related injuries and their nature having changed drastically over the years, orthopaedics has witnessed a sea change from single bone and one limb injuries to poly-trauma (multiple injuries). This change created necessity for a specialised department equipped to handle such injuries and thus, a technologically advanced trauma centre was instituted. With the aim of saving lives
and getting patients back on their feet as soon as possible, this centre has state-of-the-art diagnostic facilities, dedicated operation theatres and an observation unit to monitor patients carefully. Since the treatment of trauma requires a holistic approach, the centre has the support of other departments such as Neurology, Neurosurgery, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Cardio thoracic and Vascular surgery, to name a few.
A wide range of delicate spine surgeries which includes those required for disc prolapse, infections, tumours, deformities, degenerative diseases and fractures are handled with a high degree of success. This department has surgeons with special training in the application of modern instrumentation with pedicle screw fixation and other appropriate spinal stabilisation systems for the correction of several spinal deformities including scoliosis and kyphosis.
In Goyal hospital joint replacement surgery has been practiced for more than a decade. Thanks to modern technology, a replaced joint can be expected to last around 20 years and hence, is very useful for ageing patients and patients incapacitated due to pre-existing joint disease.
Since open surgery entails prolonged hospitalisation, the department performs arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery which has become very popular in the last two decades. This arthroscopic facility is also used for diagnostic purposes.
