More than 2500 patients from India and the rest of the world have been successfully treated here The complete range of Ilizarov Techniques is practiced here to perfection. Success rates are very high even for complex problems. Several new operations have been designed to help those suffering from Poliomyelitis & Club Feet. All modern techniques of limb lengthening such as the Taylor's Spatial Frame Lengthening Over Nails as well as fully implantable nails are used here to tailor the treatment for the Individual patients needs. With Extensive experience in Limb Lengthening, we have evolved successful strategies to ensure treatment with less pain, more consistent results with the least possible complications. Careful attention is given to comfort during treatment, to Joint function and the patients' persona as a whole. Computerized planning software simulation for accurate deformity correction is done. We have corrected all kinds of deformities in every limb bone. We have corrected bony deformities at age 6 months to age 75 years. All complex deformities of the Hips, of the knees in all directions and planes, of ankles, shoulders, elbows and wrists have been corrected to near perfection. A clear understanding of principles of deformity correction have helped us to stay focused on accurate correction. Deformities as small as 7° have also been corrected with great accuracy; something most Orthopaedic surgeons would shy away from, as even a 1° error means a 15% error! It is recognized as a referral center for difficult Ilizarov problems and leading Orthopaedic Surgeons in India refer their problem cases here. Failed Ilizarov cases done elsewhere( in India or anywhere else in the world) are rectified here, attention is given to all patients. Patients have very comfortable and spacious fully furnished living quarters and are provided freshly cooked meals from a special kitchen with ultra-filtered drinking water.
The Director of the Center has the unique perspective of being trained by the best - Prof. Ilizarov himself at his Institute in Kurgan, Russia (on not one but three occasions!) as well as by Dr. Dror Paley, MD, FRCSC, in a Fellowship at the
Maryland Center for Limb Lengthening & Reconstruction, USA.Over the last 20 years, Dr Chaudhary has updated himself with the latest techniques by travelling all around the world and attending conferences, exchanging notes, learning newer methods and invorporating them for the benefit of his patients.
