Orthopaedics


The Orthopaedic Service at the Ruban Patliputra Memorial Hospital offers a comprehensive and extensive service which has demonstrated enhanced recovery rates, which, in return, means shorter stays in hospital for the patient. This is the result of close collaborative working with other teams such as the Physiotherapy team and the Anaesthetics team, Joint replacements - hip, knee and shoulder, foot and ankle.

Upper Limb Service - Shoulder replacements & all kinds of Arthroscopic Surgery for shoulder (cuff repairs, stabilisation).

Fracture Clinics - These are run daily for patients that have been referred through the A&E pathway, however, the team now also have a dedicated direct referral line so that GPs can directly refer patients who have received initial treatment anywhere else but need follow up treatment or checks. This prevents the patients having to visit A&E again simply to get a referral to the service, therefore greatly improving the access pathway for those patients.

Physiotherapy - We provide a comprehensive physiotherapy service to the local population. This includes an in-patient service, and an out-patient muscular-skeletal service at the hospital and at a number of GP practices and health centres. There is also a domiciliary service.

Theatres - We have dedicated departments that are used every day for elective surgery including day surgery and we also have access to a department which is used for trauma cases.

Enhanced recovery programme - This is run alongside the anaesthetics service and the physiotherapy team to aid quicker rehabilitation of patients.

Joint replacement - Our joint replacement department offer you the best implants surgery for the hip, knee, ankle and shoulder with best Technology and Performance Solutions consultative services for the suffering patients.
