Department of Pediatric Orthopedics

Pediatric orthopedics is a distinctive subspecialty as bone, joint and muscular problems in children are very different from adults in their causes as well as treatment.The Orthopedics Department at KKCTH has being functioning since the founding of the institution. Having started off with a Physiotherapy Department alone, in 1984, regular inpatient and outpatient services were introduced.

The Department specializes in spinal deformities and is also renown for its treatment for children with deformities, infections , trauma and paralytic diseases , particularly cerebral palsy. Patients suffering from congenital dislocation of hips, children with limb length discrepencies , recurrent deformities of limbs and spinal deformities are referred here from all over the state as well as from other states. The department has one of the largest series of congenital spinal deformity cases treated in collaboration with the neurosurgeon.

The department expanded with the addition of more consultants, Dr. Vijay Sriram, and Dr. Sankar along with Dr.Sriram. The consultants have been invited as faculty in various national CME meetings and conferences for the last 30 years.
