First Ever Knee & Hip Care Centre has Been Launched in Mangalore

December 19: A comprehensive knee and hip care centre, first -of -its- kind in India, was launched at the KMC hospital in Dr B R Ambedkar Circle on Wednesday.
UK based International Cartilage Regeneration and Joint Preservation Society (ICRS) President Prof Mats Brittberg and Prof Seuk-Jung Kim from Seoul, South Korea inaugurated the centre. Prof A Ananthram Shetty from Institute of Medical Sciences, Faculty of Health and Wellbeing, Canterbury Christchurch University, UK, said the centre with a multi-disciplinary specialist team will adopt a comprehensive approach and offer treatment best suited to a particular patient’s needs.
“Unlike in other centres, knee replacement surgery will not be the first stage in our centre,” stressed Prof A A Shetty who is the recipient of State Rajyotsava and Hunterian awards (fourth Indian in UK to receive the award). The wide range of services provided at the centre includes physiotherapy, injection treatment, innovative surgical treatment among others,” Prof Shetty said and added that it took for them 20 years to develop the treatment protocol.
Prof Shetty said the centre’s immediate goal was to seek recognition from ICRS and become a centre of excellence. There are 16 such centres across the world recognised by ICRS, said Prof Shetty who is guiding the centre.
Manipal Hospitals Chairman Dr Sudarshan Ballal said knee and hip are major sources of disability. “With more Indians requiring the right treatment and medical advice, the centre is need-of-the-hour,” he stressed.
Consultant Knee and Hip Specialist Surgeon in KMC Hospital Dr Yogeesh D Kamath said their centre was the centre to release `performance indicators’ for surgery. The treatment offered is not expensive but affordable, he added.
