Total joint replacement or arthroplasty, represents a significant advance in the treatment of painful and disabling joint pathologies. Such surgery can be performed on any joint of the body, including the hip, knee, ankle, foot, shoulder, elbow, wrist and fingers. Among these procedures, hip and knee total joint replacements, are by far the most common.

The Durdans Hospital Centre for Orthopaedics has long been at the forefront of joint repair care, providing innovative and high-quality diagnosis and treatment that has helped it to become one of region's best. In addition to providing 24/7 immediate fracture operations, the hospital offers a spectrum of orthopaedic services ranging from minimally invasive outpatient procedures to comprehensive knee, hip and shoulder replacement. Outpatient services for orthopaedic patients include physical therapy and sports medicine.

"Through our team's advanced surgical, anesthesia and rehabilitation expertise, our joint replacement programme has become known for high-quality, patient-focussed care," said Durdans Hospital Chief Operating Officer and Director Medical Services Dr. Wimal Karandagoda. "Not only does our Centre for Orthopaedics offer a wide range of joint replacement procedures, we are also privileged to have some of Sri Lanka's most qualified and committed surgical professionals, including surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists, and technologists, who collaborate in achieving excellent patient care coordination."

"Durdans Centre of Orthopaedics is the result of ongoing collaboration between the orthopaedic team and hospital authorities to develop facilities, staffing and high surgical standards for patients of all ages. As a surgeon, it is gratifying to work in a facility that has demonstrated expertise in areas that matter most to patients: quality care, treatment expertise, and patient outcomes," said Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Durdans Hospital
Dr. Gnanasekeram.
