Orthopedics & Joint Replacement

Getting Back to Life


Diseases and injuries sustained by bones or in joint areas are not only painful but impede body functions too. Anyone who has suffered from arthritis can attest to the severity of pain and stiffness this disease can cause. Osteoarthritis, the most common form of joint disease, weakens and breaks down cartilage and bone, causing pain as bones rub together. Additionally, traumatic injuries, other ailments such as osteonecrosis, or simply years of use may cause a joint to wear away. This can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling.

Today, there is help for those who have severe pain or disability due to the breakdown of cartilage and bone. Total joint replacement, particularly of the knees and hips, has become an extremely successful type of surgical procedure in relieving pain and providing good mobility for patients of all ages.

At Ruby Hall Clinic, our goal is to offer the most sophisticated medical and surgical technologies, aimed at improving the quality of life. Our patient-centred approach means that specialists provide a personalised 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 minimise 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.

The first three days after major joint replacement surgery used to be very painful. However, with the modern pain management protocol, our patients start body movements from the same day of operation.

Paediatric Orthopedics

Paediatric Orthopaedics deals with children’s orthopaedic problems observed at birth or during the growth of the child.

Some of the problems that manifest at birth are- clubfoot (CTEV), (Foot turned inwards), valgus foot (foot turned outwards), dislocation of the hip, dislocation of the Knee, Torticollis (neck turned to one side), obstetrical brachial plexus palsy.

Some problems encountered during growth of a child are – Flat feet, Intoe gait, Genu varus (bow legs), Genu valgus (knock knees), Fractures. The timing of treatment in children is most important as most of these conditions can be treated by simple plasters and minor surgery.

Also, in the case of Cerebral palsy – a condition in which children find it difficult to walk, they can be helped by botox therapy and surgery.
