Narayana Hrudayalaya (NH), a leading specialty hospital, launched a new facility for orthopedics and joint replacements in Bengaluru.
“We plan to set up a centre of orthopedics and joint replacements for excellent cardiac care and oncology services, including bone marrow transplants,” said Devi Shetty, Narayana Health Chairman.
Narayana Hrudayalaya is located in Whitefield, the city’s upscale suburb, the centre has a dedicated inpatient and outpatient unit along with a rehab programme for patients undergoing orthopedic surgical procedures.
“As a specialized centre of excellence, the facility will have an institute of academics and training for improved patient care with doctors, nurses and therapists,” Shetty added.
The centre has a robust orthopedic programme encompassing all fields of the discipline, including arthroscopy, total and partial knee replacement, spine surgeries, complex joint replacements and hip replacements. The most advanced nominal access surgical approach is followed for arthroscopic surgeries and fractures, even for those cases that have previously required major surgeries. This orthopedics programme is flagged by an expert team of physiotherapists, rheumatologists, and rehabilitation specialists.
Shetty further added, “Orthopedic Devices Market Forecast 2016 states that 25 out of 1,000 people opt for an orthopedic surgery due to osteoarthritis. It is our endeavor to reach out to the affected people through telemedicine and provide access to patients in remote locations to avail super-specialty orthopedic treatment at affordable prices.”
Institute’s head R.D. Chakravarthy said, “As the ‘day care surgeries’ for joint replacements would reduce the cost of treatment, quicker proceedings in hip and knee replacement surgeries would also reduce rate of infection.
“Day care surgeries will help the patients to avail our services at a lower cost with quicker recovery and less hospital stay. We will also provide post-surgical care at home with rehab and physiotherapy during the recovery process,” added Chakravarthy.
