Dr Ashwani Maichand is one of India’s leading orthopedic Surgeons. As a highly trained surgeon with over 30 years of experience, he has performed over 6,000 surgeries in his long and successful career. He specializes in Arthroscopy, joint reconstruction, and joint replacement surgeries, apart from various orthopedic corrective operations.
Dr Maichand began his career in 1987 at the Government Medical College, Rohtak. Following his graduation from the government college, he opted for a post-graduation in Jaipur’s SMS Medical College and fellowship in joint replacement from USA and Germany. After the post-graduation, he worked in the joint replacement unit of Sir Ganga Ram Hospital as a consultant orthopedic surgeon and then at Fortis Hospital. Currently, he is the senior consultant and director at the Institute of Bone and Joint in MGS Hospital, Punjabi Bagh.
Ashwani Maichand specializes in curative surgical treatments such as limb salvage surgery, total femur replacement, knee replacement, hip replacement, Bankart’s tear treatment, and various sports related injuries. One of the most prolific and difficult cases that he handles is the minimal invasive surgery on the spine. Minimal invasive surgery is performed with a single incision on the affected part. This saves the patient from blood loss, pain, scarring and delayed mobilization.
A collection of success stories is what proves Dr Ashwani Maichand’s mettle. One of his most famous cases that was featured in the news was the hip-replacement of a 101-year old woman from Panipat. Dr Ashwani Maichand and his team handled that case with finesse and diligence. Stabilizing her hypertension and erratic kidney function, he proceeded with a cemented hip replacement procedure done through a minimally invasive surgery. The woman was never moved to the intensive care unit (ICU). She recovered from the operation and started walking with the help of a walker, without pain.
