Over 15 million adults in India fall prey to arthritis every year. In fact, a number of studies point towards alarming conclusions that say India might become the ‘Osteoporosis Capital’ by 2025 with over 60 million people suffering from severe joint defects. The disturbing trend needs to be arrested before it becomes endemic.

Currently, he is practicing as a senior consultant and director at the Institute of Bone and Joint in MGS Hospital, Punjabi Bagh.
Dr Maichand has performed over 6,000 successful joint surgeries in his career so far. He specializes in undertaking orthopedic corrective operations by employing the advanced Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) technique. This advanced surgical procedure guarantees the best results with minimal blood loss, pain, scarring, immobilization and inconvenience.
Dr Maichand’s Minomax Knee & Shoulder Clinic is planning to conduct health awareness camps for arthritis patients in other areas of Delhi as well. Besides medical camps, Dr Maichand is also engaged in several other programs to promote good health amongst the underprivileged children.
