Department of Orthopedics and Joint Replacement
Specialists of the Orthopedics Department specialize in the surgical treatment of joints, tendons, and bones. They correct bone deformities, carry out the reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament, joint replacement, and treat bone cancer.
Most of the procedures in Global Hospital Mumbai are minimally invasive (through small incisions in the skin). A patient recovers 2 times faster after minimally invasive operations than after traditional open surgeries. The barely noticeable scar remains after the minimally invasive surgery.
Minimally invasive operations performed by Global Hospital Mumbai doctors:
- Arthroscopy of the joints. Arthroscopic surgery is the method for treatment of the knee, elbow and shoulder joints diseases. Doctors apply thin instruments and a mini-camera that are inserted through several punctures up to 1 cm.
- Hip replacement through anterior access. This is the method to replace the affected joint with an artificial one through an incision of up to 10 cm at the front of the thigh. In comparison, the incision size during traditional surgery is 15-25 cm, and a doctor cuts the tendons and ligaments to gain access to the joint. During the minimally invasive joint replacement, the ligaments are moved aside that speeds up the patient’s recovery.

Doctors of Global Hospital Mumbai specialize in performing painless minimally invasive bariatric operations. It helps a patient to recover within a few days.
The team of doctors performs such operations as:
- The gastric band — the installation of a special ring around the stomach, which reduces the volume of the organ and promotes rapid saturation. As a result, a person eats less food at one sitting and loses weight.
- Sleeve gastrectomy — a method of reducing the stomach in volume with the organ part removal.
- Gastric bypass surgery — the creation of a special reservoir and a bypass through which food passes the main part of the stomach. Within 6 months after the surgery, a person loses up to 60-70% of excess weight.
- After the intervention, a nutritionist and a trainer work with a patient. They develop a nutrition and training plan to achieve the longest effect after the operation.
