Top 10 Orthopaedic Surgeons in India



Bone diseases, though often overlooked, pose a significant health challenge across Africa. From osteoporosis to rickets, these conditions affect millions of individuals, yet they are frequently underdiagnosed and undertreated in many parts of the continent. Over time, these deficiencies can make peoples bones weak, making them more prone to fracture and joint pain as they gain weight or grow old.

Due to this people living in African countries are more prone to experience joint pain compared to Africans living in other parts of the world. 

80% of fractures and most of club feet cases in the world occur in developing countries. With appropriate healthcare facilities, these defects can be treated, helping the patients live their life without any pain or shame.

21.5% of people in Ghana experience orthopedic trauma every year, however only 10% receive medical care, because of lack of resources or unavailability of proper medical care.

These patients can receive affordable care from the best orthopedic surgeons in India, at the top hospitals in the country using Medmonks’ help.
