Centre for Knee Replacement

No one understands the challenges that a knee complication creates for a patient better than the team of experts at Fortis Malar. Our sole objective, over here, is to help the ailing get back to the life they are used to, and the one they love and deserve.

Headed by Dr. A B Govindaraj, FRCS – Chief Consultant Orthopedic and Joint Replacement Surgeon, an acknowledged expert who brings to Fortis Malar over 28 years of rich experience, our history of successful knee replacements powered by precise diagnosis and superlative care, has been made possible by his priceless guidance.

The department also has the young and dynamic expertise of Dr. Vijay Kumar S, Dr. Anand M and Dr. Vivek. These skilled and highly qualified orthopaedic surgeons are ably supported by cutting edge technology and processes, which enables the centre to perform complex primary and revision joint replacement surgeries of the Hip, Knee, Shoulder and Elbow. The centre is also equipped to perform Arthroscopic Knee and Shoulder Surgeries; and to manage complex trauma cases.

Moreover, with the round-the-clock availability of expertise of our Cardiac, Anaesthesia and Critical Care departments, the Centre ensures best post-operative care and quicker recovery of the patient. This helps us mobilise all our patients either on the same day or the very next day of the surgery and discharge them by the fifth day itself.
