Orthopaedic Sports Injury Clinic
The sports injury clinic at SPARSH-hospital for advanced surgeries specialises in the non-surgical and surgical management of musculoskeletal injuries occurring as a result of sports. Cricket, badminton, tennis, golf, swimming etc. are the common sports that can result in injury to the shoulder and knee joint. The other joints that can be injured are elbow, wrist and ankle joint. Our team constitutes Dr. K. N. Subramanian, sports physiotherapist, junior doctors, nursing professional along with secretarial support. Dr. K. N. Subramanian has vast experience in the field, he is fellowship trained and spent 12 years in the UK and Canada. We provide a comprehensive and evidence based care to all musculoskeletal sports injuries.
We offer surgical management of the following common injuries.
- Ligament injuries of the knee joint (anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments)
- Meniscus tears of the knee joint
- Cartilage damage
- Patella dislocation
- Shoulder – recurrent dislocations
- Shoulder – rotator cuff injury
- Shoulder – impingement
- Fractures around the shoulder, elbow, wrist and knee joint
- Elbow osteoarthritis

- Wrist – triangular fibrocartilage tear
- Arthritis of the hand joints
Our approach consists of making a definitive diagnosis by a thorough clinical assessment and using various diagnostic modalities followed by formulating a management plan. In many instances, the management plan would consist of non-surgical treatment comprising of pain medications, physiotherapy and counselling. If the injury cannot be treated by non-surgical means then surgical treatment is offered.
An extensive discussion is provided prior to surgery so that patients are fully aware of the expected outcomes of the procedure. Along with Dr. K. N. Subramanian our anaesthetists and caring nurses will endeavour to make your surgical experience safe and comfortable.
Patient education and support – At every step, we take effort to inform and educate our patients about their symptoms and the pathology. All treatment options are explained to patients (and their families) prior to starting treatment. We believe that an informed and educated patient is able to participate in a shared decision making process regarding the treatment.
Sports physiotherapy and rehabilitation: The objective of the treatment in sports injuries is to get the patient back to sporty lifestyle. Our team of physiotherapists are well trained in rehabilitation and we have necessary equipment. Encouraging sports performance is another branch that our sports physiotherapist can provide support. We also offer treatments such as interferential therapy, short-wave diathermy and ultrasound massage.
"Movement is Life"- in today's world, mobility is everything.
Injuries to joints because of accidents, sporting activities, or a simple fall can be debilitating.
This is where minimally invasive surgery also known as "key hole" surgery is the way of the future to repair/ reconstruct these injured structures and bring back mobility in the quickest possible time.
