The Musculoskeletal and Sports Medicine Service Line at the Aga Khan University Hospital provides a broad spectrum of diagnostic and treatment options to patients suffering from bone, joint, ligament, tendon, muscle and nerve diseases and injuries that cause pain and affect mobility. The Service Line consists of a team of highly qualified and experienced doctors, surgeons and nurses, specialized in orthopaedics, rheumatology and sport medicine. The services that are offered by our team of experts include but are not limited to, broken bones, fractures, sport injuries, knee replacement, hip replacement, rheumatic diseases and muscular skeletal diseases.
Our Musculoskeletal and Sports Medicine Service Line specialists work closely with and are supported by clinical imaging (radiology), laboratory, pharmacy, physiotherapy and rehabilitation specialists.
Patients can access our services by making an initial appointment to consult our specialists at the consulting clinics. Following a full evaluation, your doctor will discuss with you the treatment options and develop a treatment plan. This may involve surgery that requires hospital admission for overnight stay or you might be managed in our day care surgery services. Your doctor may refer you for physiotherapy, occupational therapy and pain management. These services provide patients with the support and treatment needed for a quick recovery and to be able to perform routine chores smoothly once again. In the case of a severe accident or trauma, patients can come to the emergency at our Main Hospital Campus.
The Aga Khan University Hospital has multiple specialties all under one roof. This enables our doctors in the Musculoskeletal and Sports Medicine service line to work closely with doctors from other service lines in the hospital and ensure our patients receive a holistic approach to meet their health care needs.
