The orthopaedics routinely carries out some of the most advanced surgeries ranging from hip replacements to anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Our complex hand surgery and arthroscopic ligament reconstruction programmes are particularly well respected. Pre and post-operative care is given a high priority and our success rate speaks for itself.
When we think about orthopedics, bones and joints come to mind. But this field is so much more than just that and the includes ligaments, muscles, tendons and nerves too that together make up the musculoskeletal system. Trauma and degenerative diseases of the bones lead to a lot of pain which can only be treated and controlled by the expert hands of an experienced orthopedist.
The medical specialty called orthopedics is devoted to the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of trauma and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. This system requires particular attention as the body begins to age and joints start to degenerate and become weaker and make it easier to fall and fracture or dislocate bones and joints.
Though it was only in 2007 that the 47-year-old GJ Hospitals and Trauma Centre became a multi-specialty hospital under the able guardianship of its Managing Director, Dr Arvind Bhateja, the orthopedics department has grown into a nationally and internationally recognized center for its excellence in innovative and successful surgeries.
At this hospital located in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, patients from many parts of India as well as abroad come in for simple treatments as well as the most complex orthopedic issues. The hospital provides state-of-the-art care for joint replacements as well as musculoskeletal injuries and diseases. In keeping with the vision of the founder, each patient here is provided with the utmost compassionate care, warmth and courtesy as can be seen from the testimonials of various patients after leaving the care of the hospital.
The orthopedic surgeons at this center are recognized for their excellence and innovative abilities and the use of latest technologies to solve both simple and complicated orthopedic problems. These doctors are known for visiting various hospitals abroad frequently for the sole purpose of upgrading their own techniques and applying them in India on their patients. Use of these newer technologies helps in faster healing, better rehabilitation and better outcomes. Subspecialties within the orthopedic center include adult joint reconstruction, pediatric care, sports-related care, trauma care, hand, leg, shoulder, elbow, spine and orthopedic oncology.
The orthopedic surgeons at this hospital have expertise in the following areas including knee arthroscopy, shoulder arthroscopy, total knee replacement, hip replacement, complex hand surgery, brachial plexus surgery, arthroscopic ligament reconstruction to name a few.

Hip replacement or anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, the eminent surgeons are up to the task using the most advanced techniques and materials.
As in all global-standard hospitals, pre and post-operative care is given a lot of importance too. The doctors take their time to explain and educate their patients on the procedures they are supposed to undergo as well as the kind of results to be expected. Post-surgery physiotherapy and rehabilitation at the recently included Rehab Center are given a lot of importance as they are key to the outcome of any procedure’s success. The high number of happy patients is a testimony to the success of the surgeries carried out here.
