FORTIS: THE BEST JOINT CARE HOSPITAL

Our team consists of highly qualified and experienced surgeons known for their skill in performing joint replacement surgeries and laparoscopic surgeries.

Total Knee Replacement: A full knee replacement, also known as Arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure where a diseased knee joint is replaced by an artificial material. It is recommended for patients with severely damaged knee joints, knee deformities or severe cases of arthritis. In a full knee replacement, the ends of the tibia and femur bones are removed and replaced with a metal shell and plastic pieces.

Bilateral Knee Replacement: It is a procedure in which both the knees are replaced in a single operation, entailing single anesthesia, single hospitalization and recovery period.

Total Hip Replacement: In this procedure, the damaged sections of the hip joint is replaced with components made of metal and very hard plastic. This is also known as total hip arthroplasty and is considered if the hip pain interferes with routine, daily activities and non-conservative treatments haven’t helped.

Shoulder Replacement Surgery: Although relatively less common than hip and knee replacement, it is also performed for relieving joint pain.

Elbow Replacement: This is a complicated procedure owing to the presence of several moving parts balancing each other with precision to control the movements of the forearm.

ACL Reconstruction: It is a surgery which involves replacing the anterior cruciate ligament, which is one of the major ligaments of the knee. ACL injuries typically occur while playing sports such as basketball, soccer and volleyball.

Ankle-Brachial Index: It is a quick, non-invasive way to check your risk of peripheral artery disease (PAD) by comparing the blood pressure measured at the ankle with that of the arm. A low index number can indicate clogging or blockage of the arteries in the legs which leads to heat diseases, circulatory problems and stroke.
