Orthopedics is the study of the human musculoskeletal system. The Greek word 'ortho' means straight or correct and 'pedics' comes from the Greek 'pais' meaning children. For many centuries, orthopedists have been involved in the treatment of crippled children. The term was coined in 1741 by the author of a textbook on the prevention of childhood diseases. Orthopedic doctors (also called Orthopedists or Orthopeds) specialize in diagnosis and treatment of problems of the musculoskeletal system. The musculoskeletal system includes: bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. It is a main branch of surgery.
A number of professions offer non-surgical treatment options for many orthopedic problems, such as: physiotherapy, chiropractic, occupational therapy, podiatry, and kinesiology. Conditions requiring medication or surgical intervention are managed by orthopedic surgeons and podiatric surgeons.
At Shivam Hospital, our goal is to offer the most sophisticated medical and surgical technologies aimed at improving quality of life. Our patient centered approach means that our specialists provide a personalized treatment plan tailored to allow individuals to return to a normal lifestyle and eliminate pain. Our team consists of pioneers and foremost experts in the field of joint replacement.
We also offer novel approaches to manage and minimize pain associated with total joint replacement surgeries. Pain management actually begins before surgery. Patients take medications to reduce pain prior to surgery and pain medications are injected directly into the hip or knee joint. The goal is to reduce pain, facilitate physical therapy and return patients to an active lifestyle as soon as possible.Facilities -
