Breach candy hospital department of Orthopaedics is a leading center for treatment of arthritis and other painful joint problems. The center cares for thousands of patients every year with the most advanced nonsurgical and surgical techniques. Our surgeons have expertise in joint preserving surgeries such as arthroscopy and osteotomy, as well as joint replacement of the hip and knee. Modern, less-invasive techniques allow for rapid recovery and lasting results.
Specially designed complex of operating theatres incorporating advanced processes, such as laminar airflows, a specialized coating of the walls of the theater which are seamless, and the special coating of the flooring which is antistatic and bacterial and fungal resistant provides a highly sterile environment essential to avoid post-surgery infections.
Availability of computer-assisted (Navigation System) in joint replacement surgery has substantially increased the accuracy of the surgery.

Trained team to enable optimal care of critically injured patients with systemic injuries and multiple fractures Round the clock trauma and emergency services Dedicated and experienced team of trauma surgeons Thorough preoperative planning and a definitive treatment plan for all complex fractures In-house availability of supportive services like Radiology, Blood bank & Bone bank Tertiary referral centre for all basic, complex and failed fracture surgeries Treatment of geriatric fractures in elderly population
Joint Replacement Surgeries
Team of world renowned Orthopaedic joint replacement surgeons trained to deal with all type of arthritic joints (Knee, Hips, Shoulder, elbow) Use of Computer assisted navigation for more accurate cuts and perfect balancing Minimally invasive Hip and knee replacements using latest state of art technologies and implants giving the advantage of bloodless surgery and early painfree recoveries post operatively.
Specialized anesthesia techniques (“nerve blocks”) ensure that the post-operative periods are less painful and comfortable for elderly patients and enable early mobilization.
Unicompartmental knee replacement (also called partial knee replacement) here only a portion of the knee is resurfaced. This procedure is an alternative to total knee replacement for patients whose disease is limited to just one area of the knee.Because a partial knee replacement is performed through a smaller incision, patients usually spend little or no time in the hospital and return to normal activities sooner.
