Accident & Emergency

Emergency Department (ED),
also known as accident & emergency (A&E),
emergency room (ER),
or casualty department is a medical
treatment facility specializing
in acute care of patients who present without
prior appointment, either by their own
means or by ambulance.

Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy (also called arthroscopic surgery)
is a minimally invasive surgical procedure
in which an examination and sometimes
treatment of damage of the interior of
a joint is performed using an arthroscope.

Medicine

Medicine is the applied science or practice
of the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
t encompasses a variety of health care
practices evolved to maintain and restore health by
the prevention and treatment of illness in human beings.

Orthopedics

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.

ICU Services

ICU Services - The Intensive Care Unit (ICU),
is a very challenging environment.
Intensive Care Units treat critically ill patients and do so
in an environment where the medical,
nursing and respiratory teams have to anticipate
problems and stay one step ahead of the
patient's illness to be successful.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell treatments are a type of intervention strategy that introduces new adult stem cells into damaged tissue in order to treat disease or injury. Many medical researchers believe that stem cell treatments have the potential to change the face of human disease and alleviate suffering.[1] The ability of stem cells to self-renew and give rise to subsequent generations with variable degrees of differentiation capacities,[2] offers significant potential for generation of tissues that can potentially replace diseased and damaged areas in the body, with minimal risk of rejection and side effects.

A number of stem cell therapies exist, but most are at experimental stages or costly, with the notable exception of bone marrow transplantation. Medical researchers anticipate that adult and embryonic stem cells will soon be able to treat cancer, Type 1 diabetes mellitus, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, Celiac Disease, cardiac failure, muscle damage and neurological disorders, and many others. Nevertheless, before stem cell therapeutics can be applied in the clinical setting, more research is necessary to understand stem cell behavior upon transplantation as well as the mechanisms of stem cell interaction with the diseased/injured microenvironment.

For over 30 years, bone marrow, and more recently, umbilical cord blood stem cells, have been used to treat cancer patients with conditions such as leukaemia and lymphoma. During chemotherapy, most growing cells are killed by the cytotoxic agents. These agents, however, cannot discriminate between the leukaemia or neoplastic cells, and the hematopoietic stem cells within the bone marrow. It is this side effect of conventional chemotherapy strategies that the stem cell transplant attempts to reverse; a donor's healthy bone marrow reintroduces functional stem cells to replace the cells lost in the host's body during treatment.
