Total Knee Replacement-TKR
The most common cause of knee pain is (OA) Ostearthritis which is seen after the age of 40 years. OA is an age related process which can also be secondary to injury or infection. Progressive pain, stiffness and deformity leading to inability in doing daily activities. Treatment varies upon the severity of arthritis. In Early Stage Medication and physiotherapy gives pain relief. Where as in advanced arthritis, TKR gives excellent pain relief and allows the patient to get back to their routine work at the earliest.
Total Hip Replacement-THR
The normal hip is a ball and socket joint, which is the most stable joint in the body. Fractures, arthritis and decreased blood supply to ball of hip joint are the common causes of pain. The aim of treatment is to reduce pain and functional disability. THR is advised for those who do not respond to medication, physiotherapy. In THR the damaged cartilage and bone are replaced with highly polished and durable material. After THR the patient is pain free, with good movements of hip joint.
Trauma management with team approach. Fixation and coverage of open fractures for prevention of infection, to help in faster recovery with less complication. Expert anaesthetist, micro vascular, Faciomaxillary and plastic surgeons work with fruitful holistic approach for early and speedy Rehabilitation.

Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART)
In Virto Fertilization
In Virto Fertilization (IVF) means fertilization outside the body. IVF is the most effective (ART) Assisted Reproductive Technology. It is often used when a woman's fallopian tubes are damaged. Women are treated with several types of injections and multiple eggs are produced. Once mature, the eggs are removed from woman. they are put in a dish in the lab along with the man's sperm for fertilization. After 3 to 5 days healthy embryos are transferred to woman.
In Vitro Maturation
In Vitro Maturation (IVM) is a technique by which the eggs are taken out before they are fully matured and cultured outside in specific medium to make it mature outside and thn (ICSI)Intracytoplasmic sperm injection is done. By this we are preventing the only dreaded complication in ART, i.e., OHSS (Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome) which happens in few group of patients who are prone to making large number of eggs.
Selected Sperm Injection
Intracytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection (Imsi) is a realtively new technique used to improve results in ICSI cycles, especially in repeated ICSI failures. In IMSI, sperms are selected under high morphology (7000-10,000 times) and then ICSI is done. This will detect abnormalities in sperm magnification. Adding IMSI to your ART treatment will help us to better our results.
TESA/PESA are techniques used to extract sperm from the testis and used for doing ICSI in case of obstructive azoospermia.
Role Of Hysterolaparoscopy In
Laproscopy (Keyhole Surgery) enables the evaluation of the internal organs while Hysteroscopy helps to see the interior of uterus and cervix. Patients with certain congenital abnormalities are benefitted from surgeries to a large extent. Patients with endometriosis benefit from laparoscopy. Any tumor or cysts in the uterus or in the ovary can be detected and removed via laparoscope.
Fetomaternal Medicine Unit:
Our FM unit is unique and probably the first and only unit in South India that combines the expertise of fetal medicine and finesse the high risk pregnancy management. A group of commited obstetricians, radiologists, geneticists and neonatologists ensure that both the mother and child successfully complete their 9 month long journey from pregnancy to motherhood.
Surgery done with the aid of an endoscope, an instrument used to examine the interior of hollow organ or cavity of the body.
There are strict definitions of infertility used by many doctors. However, there are also similar terms, e.g. subfertility for a more benign condition and fecundity for the natural improbability to conceive. Infertility in a couple can be due to either the woman or the man, not necessarily both.
Reproductive endocrinologists, the doctors specializing in infertility, consider a couple to be infertile if:
The couple has not conceived after 12 months of contraceptive-free intercourse if the female is under the age of 34. 12 months is the lower reference limit for Time to Pregnancy (TTP) by the World Health Organization.
The couple has not conceived after 6 months of contraceptive-free intercourse if the female is over the age of 35 (declining egg quality of females over the age of 35 account for the age-based discrepancy as when to seek medical intervention).
The female is incapable of carrying a pregnancy to term.
Our neonatology team ensures that the precious little one handed over to them goes home safe and sound. Every delivery at CIMAR is conducted in the presence of the neonatology team so as to ensure the timely resuscitation of the baby if at all the need arises. High risk babies are managed in our well-equipped NICU and the others are kept in the best possible place in the world - next to their mothers.
