Section of Orthopaedic Surgery
The section of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Aga Khan University Hospital provides a broad spectrum of surgical treatments to patients suffering from bone, joint, ligament, tendon, muscle, and nerve diseases and injuries that cause pain and affect mobility. Our orthopaedic surgeons are a team of highly qualified and experienced professionals who specialise in different fields of Orthopaedics. Our team of experts offers services that include but are not limited to surgical and non-surgical treatments for fractures and trauma. In addition, we have state-of-the-art specialists who treat sports injuries, tendon, cartilage, and ligament injuries, perform primary and revision knee, hip and shoulder replacements, bone, and soft tissue tumour surgeries, and handle paediatric orthopaedic, hand, brachial plexus, and spine related issues.
Our specialists work closely with and are supported by radiology, laboratory, pharmacy, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation specialists among others.
Patients can access our services by making an initial appointment to consult our specialists at the consulting clinics. After a complete evaluation, your doctor will discuss the treatment options and develop a treatment plan. This may involve surgery that requires hospital admission for an overnight stay, or you might be managed in our daycare surgery services. Your medical team may refer you for rheumatology, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and pain management.
