    Published on January 29, 2019

    Haldwani : With more than 14 years of rich experience in serving the patients in Delhi-NCR and Western UP, Fortis Hospital, Noida is launching a Super Speciality OPD service in Haldwani, Uttarakhand, at Garv Diagnostic Centre & Hospital.
    This OPD will be operational for Orthopedics and Joint diseases every month on specific day, allowing residents of Haldwani and neighboring areas to access leading healthcare experts from Fortis Hospital, Noida.
    “Through this OPD service, we hope to spread awareness about the importance of early detection in orthopaedic diseases, as ortho pains are often neglected by people until it causes distress. We would like to take this opportunity to sensitize the society about the increasing orthopedic problems in India.” Said Dr. Atul Mishra, Director, Dept of Orthopedics, Fortis Hospital, Noida.
    Computer navigated pinless surgeries for knee replacements are precise and have best outcomes. Computer navigated knee replacement surgery is a state-of-the-art surgical technique which lifts the accuracy upto 99.9% improving the longevity and better functioning of the artificial joints.
    This is the first time in Haldwani that Fortis Hospital Noida introduces such advanced technique for the local patients, which not only reduces the travel time but also curbs down the cost of treatment. Patients from Haldwani and nearby areas like Nainital can avail such facilities here itself.
    The Centre of Excellence for Orthopedics at Fortis Hospital Noida with its new extended OPD centre in Haldwani, conducts joint replacement, knee and hip replacement surgeries.
    The hospital is equipped to deal with an array of medical processes ranging from uni-compartmental knee replacement, surface replacement of hip, arthroscopic management of knee, shoulder and ankle and complex fracture clinics. The hospital also provides treatment for sports injuries, osteoporosis clinic, and ankle and foot management.
    “Today’s generation leads a sedentary lifestyle – long hours are spent sitting in the same position, mostly in a wrong posture, at workplaces. In addition, late night shifts, smoking, long hours in front of the computer and irregular eating habits are making orthopedic problems a lifestyle disease. Increase in alcohol consumption and cigarette smoking (which are high calcium stealers) leads to higher risk of acquiring bone disease. As a result, relatively younger people are developing joint disorders and knee pains and age groups suffering from bone diseases are getting younger. Both men and women lose their bone density by 0.3 to 0.5 percent after the age of 35.” Dr. Mishra added.
    The Centre is equipped with the state-of-the-art infrastructure, operation theatres, highly qualified nursing and support staff along with internationally trained professional doctors who are among the best in the country.
    On the occasion of OPD launch, Mr. Hardeep Singh, Zonal Director, Fortis Hospital, Noida said, “Our key purpose of setting up the OPD in Haldwani is to extend our services to the people of Uttarakhand who can’t afford to travel far for treatment. Our experienced and highly qualified doctors have already created their own milestones in their respective fields and are now inclined to serve more people. The OPD service and related facilities is yet another patient-centric step taken by the country’s leading healthcare provider to deliver quality healthcare through world-class services.”
