Mismanagement of fractures a major concern, say experts

Untreated osteoarthritis, spondylosis and badly treated fractures are some of the reasons why hundreds of people// in India suffer needlessly and are often laid up, according to orthopaedic experts here.

"Indian orthopaedics is at par with the world with many delicate and complicated surgeries being performed here daily," said Surya Bhan, head of the orthopaedics department at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here.
