Department of Orthopaedics

The department of orthopaedics here at Jiwan Jyoti is dedicated to the comprehensive diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of injuries and disorders that afflict the musculoskeletal system, encompassing bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. We as orthopaedic surgeons, possess extensive expertise and training in addressing the diverse range of conditions that impact the musculoskeletal framework.

Within the realm of orthopaedics, surgeons at Jiwan Jyoti are tasked with providing holistic care, extending from fractures and dislocations to arthritis and osteoporosis, while also catering to complex, high-stakes procedures that may involve the replacement of damaged joints, such as hips and knees, or corrective surgeries for spinal deformities, such as scoliosis with the help of senior surgeons as and when needed. By leveraging the gamut of treatment modalities available, including pharmacotherapy, physical therapy, and surgical intervention, surgeons at Jiwan Jyoti strive to effectively mitigate the debilitating effects of musculoskeletal conditions. Physical therapy, for instance, represents a cornerstone of care, facilitating the recuperation process from injuries and enabling patients to restore their mobility. Meanwhile, medications like analgesics and anti-inflammatory agents, serve as indispensable adjuncts to ameliorate the pain and inflammation that can accompany musculoskeletal ailments. And in more complex cases, surgical interventions may be necessary once conservative modalities have been exhausted.

In essence, the department of orthopaedics plays a critical role in the broader healthcare ecosystem, as it works to promote optimal physical functioning and preserve patients’ overall quality of life. As new technologies and innovative therapies continue to emerge, surgeons at JJCH remain poised to push the boundaries of what is feasible in treating┬ámusculoskeletal conditions, improving outcomes and providing hope for those who face these challenges.

Orthopaedic doctors treat a wide range of conditions, including fractures, dislocations, sprains, strains, arthritis, osteoporosis, tendonitis, bursitis, spinal disorders, and sports injuries.

You should see an orthopaedic doctor if you have pain, swelling, or stiffness in your joints or muscles that is not improving, or if you have suffered a sports injury, broken bone, or other musculoskeletal injury.

During your first visit, your orthopaedic doctor will review your medical history, perform a physical examination, and may order diagnostic tests such as x-rays, MRI, or CT scans to determine the cause of your symptoms.

An orthopaedic doctor may order diagnostic tests such as x-rays, MRI, CT scans, bone scans, or electromyography (EMG) to help diagnose the cause of your symptoms.

Common treatments for orthopaedic conditions include medication, physical therapy, immobilization, bracing, injections, and surgery.

Recovery time for orthopaedic procedures varies depending on the type and severity of the condition, as well as the individual’s overall health. Your doctor will provide you with specific instructions regarding post-operative care and recovery.

The duration of time you will need to be on crutches or in a cast after a fracture or surgery varies depending on the location and severity of the injury. Your doctor will provide you with specific instructions regarding post-operative care and recovery.

The risks and potential complications associated with orthopaedic surgery vary depending on the type of surgery and the individual’s overall health. Some common risks include infection, bleeding, blood clots, nerve damage, and anaesthesia complications.

The length of time it takes for bones to heal depends on the type and severity of the fracture, as well as the individual’s overall health. On average, it takes 6-8 weeks for a bone to heal.

Non-surgical treatment options for orthopaedic conditions include medication, physical therapy, immobilization, bracing, and injections.

Yes, physical therapy can be an effective treatment option for many orthopaedic conditions. Physical therapy can help improve range of motion, strength, flexibility, and function.

You can prevent orthopaedic injuries by maintaining a healthy weight, staying active, wearing appropriate protective gear during sports or other physical activities, practicing good posture, and avoiding repetitive motions that strain the joints and muscles.

Nutrition plays an important role in orthopaedic health by providing the nutrients needed to support bone and muscle health. Adequate intake of calcium, vitamin D, protein, and other essential nutrients is important for maintaining strong bones and muscles.

There are several recent advancements in orthopaedic treatment and technology, including: Minimally invasive surgical techniques that result in smaller incisions, less pain, and faster recovery times. The use of 3D printing technology to create custom-made implants and prosthetics. Biologic treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapy that can help stimulate tissue regeneration and healing. The use of robotic-assisted surgery to improve the precision and accuracy of surgical procedures.

The answer to this question depends on the type and severity of the injury or surgery, as well as the individual’s overall health and level of physical activity. In many cases, physical therapy and rehabilitation can help individuals return to their previous level of activity. However, it is important to follow your doctor’s recommendations and guidelines for returning to physical activity to avoid re-injury.

Pain associated with orthopaedic conditions can be managed through a variety of treatment options, including medication, physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, and nerve blocks. Your doctor will work with you to develop a personalized pain management plan based on your individual needs and preferences.

The frequency of follow-up appointments with your orthopaedic doctor will depend on the type and severity of your condition, as well as the type of treatment you are receiving. Your doctor will provide you with specific instructions regarding follow-up appointments and ongoing care.
