  • Paediatric Orthopaedics

    Amala Orthopaedics Centre's Paediatric Orthopaedics Unit provides a comprehensive range of facilities for the management of various orthopaedic conditions in children. One of the core services provided by the unit is conservative correction by serial plastering for deformities such as clubfoot and clubhand. This approach involves using a series of casts or splints to gradually correct the deformity over time.


    In addition to this, the unit also offers surgical correction of congenital deformities, which involves correcting any structural abnormalities present from birth through surgical procedures. This includes limb lengthening, which is a surgical procedure that aims to increase the length of a limb. The unit also provides both conservative and surgical correction of congenital dislocation of hip and knee, which are conditions where the hip or knee joint is not in the correct position.


    The unit also specializes in the management of cerebral palsy and post-polio paralysis. Cerebral palsy is a group of neurological disorders that affect movement and posture, and the unit provides various treatments to improve these conditions. Post-polio paralysis is a condition that affects individuals who have had polio in the past and can cause muscle weakness or paralysis. The unit provides treatments to manage and alleviate symptoms associated with these conditions.


    Overall, Amala Orthopaedics Centre's Paediatric Orthopaedics Unit provides a comprehensive range of services for the management of various orthopaedic conditions in children, with a focus on conservative and surgical correction of deformities, limb lengthening, and management of cerebral palsy and post-polio paralysi·
