Our orthopaedic department is a specialized area that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of injuries that affect the musculoskeletal system. In other words, it is an area where patients can receive orthopaedic care.

Orthopaedics deals with conditions that affect the bones and joints in your body. These include:

Arthritis: This is an incurable condition that causes inflammation and pain to occur in your joints.

Hip and Knee Problems: Hip and knee problems can cause you to experience pain, swelling, stiffness, and limited range of motion.

Shoulder Pain: Shoulder pain can be caused by a variety of conditions including injury, arthritis, rotator cuff tears, labarum tears and more.

Elbow Problems: Elbow pain may be due to arthritis or dislocation of the elbow joint. It can also be caused by overuse injuries such as tennis elbow or repetitive motion injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome.

Back Pain: Back pain results from damage to your spinal discs (the cushioning material found between your vertebrae). This type of injury may result from trauma like automobile accidents or sports injuries like falling down stairs.

The Department of Orthopedics performs a wide range of surgical procedures for patients with musculoskeletal problems. The most common procedures involve the treatment of fractures, joint replacement and other related conditions. Some of the more common procedures performed in the Department include:
