This is probably first of its kind department in the country where a dedicated team treats ailments of the upper extremity. Dr. Vikas Gupta has more than 6,000 successful hand upper extremity surgeries to his credit. He has been a pioneer in this field and many of the procedures were introduced by him in India. All kinds of elbow disorders are treated by Dr. Vikas Gupta. Following are a few broad groups we have divided elbow disorders
Elbow arthroscopy: Minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery of the elbow where surgery is done through small (< 1cm) incision.
Total elbow replacement, radial head replacement: Whenever joint is arthritic leading to pain/stiffness prosthetic (artificial) is used to replace elbow joint. Total elbow replacement is also done in cases where joint is broken severely such that it cannot be reconstructed with plate and screws.
Stiff elbow whenever there are decreased movements because of any surgery or injury. We carefully remove the cause and regain movements.
Newer modalities like stem cell therapy for tendinopathies like tennis elbow
Advanced rehabilitation therapy each surgery is complemented by advanced rehabilitation by our rehabilitation team. We use advanced braces like turnbuckle brace, continuous passive motion devices, functional manual therapy with contemporary rehabilitation protocols which results in best outcomes after surgery
