206 bones, 640 muscles, over 200 joints, over 4000 tendons, approximately 160 bursae and 900 ligaments is what our musculoskeletal system is made up of. Our bones form the skeletal framework of our body. Our muscles help our bones to help us sit, stand, walk and run. The bursae (fluid sac between the muscles and bones that forms in areas of friction) in our body help to facilitate the various movements at the joints minimizing friction. The tendons (a fibrous band of tissue connecting muscle with bone) help to transmit the force generated during movement from the muscles to the bones. The ligaments (a fibrous band of tissue connecting bones) seal the joint space and provide passive stability.

The system as a whole gives form, stability and movement to the human body. And,we are always striving to offer you the most comprehensive range of musculoskeletal care and expertise.

Osteoporosis & Metabolic Bone Disease

Centre for Osteoporosis & Metabolic Bone Diseases
With every major osteoporosis fracture, the risk of death doubles. Yet it is not taken seriously the world over. Not just Osteoporosis, but the whole gamut of metabolic diseases has been long put on the backburner. In the hierarchy of diseases, much of our attention has been consumed by AIDS, tuberculosis or cancer. Yet the true picture of this malady of the bones is very serious. One out of eight males and one out of three females in India suffers from osteoporosis, making India one of the largest affected countries in the world (Source: WHO)
Metabolic diseases are a group of disorders arising due to abnormalities of minerals (like Calcium, Phosphorous, and Vitamin D) metabolism. Most are remarkably reversible if the underlying defect has been corrected. Timely intervention can save you from having to suffer a lifelong deformity.
At the centre you will find comprehensive treatments involving your Orthopedic expert, Endocrinologist, Dietitician, Physiotherapist for complete disease evaluation and treatment
Primary and Secondary Osteoporosis
Estrogen Deficiency States
Cushing’s Disease
Paget’s Disease
Disorders of Calcium Metabolism

If you have had
Have had a fracture following mild trauma (e.g. slip and fall)
Have low estrogen (women) or testosterone (men) levels
Are on Prednisone or other steroids
Have chronically overactive thyroid or parathyroid function
Have elevated blood prolactin levels
All women over 65 and all men over 70 and
All post-menopausal women under age 65 who have other risk factors for fracture
You should get yourself screened to pick up the disease at the earliest through a simple non invasive DEXA Scan.

With highly experienced experts at the helm, commitment to deliver high quality results is one of our long respected traditions. Musculoskeletal Imaging and Therapeutics is a subspecialty division offering the full spectrum of modalities for various diseases of bones and joints.
Imaging Diagnostics
X- ray
Ultrasonography uses high frequency sound waves inaudible to the human ear to visualize body structures. It is often the modality of choice for sports injuries, ligament tears, and early changes of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
CT Scan
Multidetector CT scans allows us to image abnormalities of bone with ultra-high resolution. The images are generated akin to thin slices that appear to opening the body up. CT scan is routinely used for evaluation of complex fractures, joint reconstructions, and bone tumors.
MRI is a non-invasive, non-ionizing imaging modality that uses high radio -frequency pulses. It is the imaging modality of choice for joint derangements, muscle and tendon injuries radio graphically occult fractures, infections and tumors of bone and soft tissues.
Bone Mineral Densitometry Scan(DEXA Scan)
DEXA scan is used to diagnose Osteoporosis, to follow up for the efficacy of treatments for osteoporosis and also to assess one’s risk of getting fractures.
Arthrograms are used to study the anatomy of the joints under real-time imaging.
CT guided Biopsy (Disc Space, Para-vertebral Soft tissue, Vertebral Body)
This method is a non-invasive technique to obtain various specimens for detailed study.
Interventional Radiology
Our Interventional Radiologists offer minimally invasive options to treat various diseases, hitherto treated by surgeries and other invasive methods.
An Injection can be used to alleviate pain in your neck, shoulder, arm, back, buttock, hip, and/or leg. It is a non-surgical procedure that uses x-ray imaging to guide the injection of medication in to the specific area of focus. The various options available are:
