- Paediatric Orthopaedics & Limb Deformity Correction – has a bewildering range of problems right from birth to adulthood. A Child is not a small adult does the dictum and hence treating these children require special training, experience and care. Sub-specialisation has enabled us to offer our best to these children and improve their condition.
After post-graduation, I was trained in Paediatric Orthopaedics, Spine and Scoliosis Surgery by Prof. K. Sriram and there after completed Clinical Fellowships in Paediatric Orthopaedics at National University Hospital, Singapore, Fellowship in Spine & Scoliosis Surgery at Korea University and Fellowship in Paediatric Orthopaedics and Limb Deformity Correction, Lengthening at Korea University. My training here was focused on Paediatric Orthopaedic pathologies like limb deficiencies, skeletal dysplasia, drawfisms, achondroplasia and other rare paediatric orthopaedic disorders. Limb deformity correction, limb lengthening in such challenging situations with Ilizarov Fixator, Monorail, complex spine deformity correction in neuromuscular scoliosis, Idopathic scoliosis etc was the emphasis of the fellowship here. This supplemented the Observership stint at Alfred Dupont Hospital for Children, Wilmington, Delaware, USA where I travelled to observe the Cerebral Palsy and Skeletal DysplasiaI work by Dr. Freeman Miller and Dr. William McKenzie. In addition, I visited Schon Klink in Munich, Germany to train in Minimally invasive Spine surgery and Spinal Microsurgery. National University Hospital of Singapore has awarded me their Honorary Fellowship in Paediatric Orthopaedics.
