SPS Hospitals department of orthopaedics is manned with orthopaedic surgeons who are among the most experienced in North India in treating highly complex traumatic and post-traumatic injuries – and in exploring effective techniques to improve long-term outcomes. Our surgeons work in tandem with rehabilitation specialists and psychologists to help patients recover from their injuries and reclaim their functionality and independence.
Patients of all ages can experience trauma and fractures. These serious injuries can occur during accidents, life-threatening falls, and countless other scenarios. Unfortunately, they can have a long-term impact on patients’ functionality and even affect their quality of life. Orthopaedic surgeons at SPS Hospitals have pioneered surgical techniques and technology to improve results for patients who have experienced traumatic injuries.
Bone fractures are extremely common, whether from high-energy trauma resulting in multiple injuries or from some other force or impact resulting in an isolated fracture and dislocation. Our team expertly treats the full range of these injuries, no matter how complex, including long bone fractures of the upper and lower extremity.
Treatments for Trauma and Fractures
Fractures of the pelvis, upper and lower extremities, and post-traumatic orthopaedic conditions can be treated with surgical and nonsurgical procedures, depending on the condition.
Common nonsurgical treatments include:
- Immobilising devices such as casts, splints, braces, and traction
- Medications, such as antibiotics to resolve infections and nonsteroidal anti- inflammatory drugs to treat arthritis
- Physical medicine and rehabilitation
Surgery is sometimes necessary to properly treat breaks or trauma injuries that are complicated, severe, or resistant to healing. Surgical treatments include fixating (keeping together) the broken parts of the bone using metal pins, screws, or plates.
SPS Hospitals’ orthopaedic medicine specialists work with each patient to choose a personalised treatment likely to have the best long-term outcome.
