Inspite of Joint Replacements being done on a regular basis from the year 2004, the official inauguration of the A.I.O.R. Joint replacement was done in June’2014. The Inauguration was not done by any Beaurocrat, Politician and businessman but by a 30 years old lady who could not walk Inspite having numerous surgeries upon her right hip from 10 years. She was operated upon at AIOR and on her post operative day 7 she enlightens the candle to mark the inauguration of AIOR JRC after walking with minimal support.
The new Joint Replacement Centre is equipped with state of the art facilities catering exclusively for patients requiring joint replacement surgery.
The unit is headed by Dr.Ashish Singh under the guidance and supervision of Dr.Pradeep Sharma (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Fortis, New Delhi and Visiting Consultant A.I.O.R.)
