Helping Bones & Joints Work Better

The road so far .. . . .

Dr. K. Srinivasan started The Fracture & Orthopaedic Clinic in 1972 as an Orthopaedic surgeon's private practice in Malleswaram.

Over the years the practice has grown from strength to strength, and moved into the present building in 1997.

Surgeries were performed initially at The Sindhi Memorial Hospital, and then at Chhaya Nursing Home in Malleswaram. In 1999, he helped start the Orthopaedic Surgery department at Manipal Hospitals [HAL Airport Road, Bangalore] and at Manipal NorthSide Hospital, [Malleswaram].

Dr. Shankar R. Kurpad , his son-in-law,  joined him in 2001, and Dr. Kamini Kurpad, his daughter, joined them in 2004. The orthopaedic practice has grown in breadth & depth, with each member of the group contributing their specialised skill sets for the best interests of the patient.

The emphasis on precision at surgery, with a human touch, and an eye on preventive care in orthopedics has yielded excellent results for their many patients. With steadfast hard work, ethical practice and humanity in service,  their patient population gradually has grown many fold not only in Bangalore but have attracted many patients from neighboring districts and states, to this center of Orthopaedic Excellence.

Being able to be current and contemporary, while being compassionate has been the hallmark of the appeal to patients.

They formalised their Orthopaedic group practice in 2007, with the formation of K.S. Orthopaedic Foundation.

From 2007, the team has been attached to Columbia Asia Referral Hospital,Yeswanthpur, and for patients preferring a non-corporate hospital - St.Theresa's Hospital, RajajiNagar.

Dr. Badrinath Murthy was a part of the group from 2011 to 2018

Dr. Deepak Rudrappa joined the team in 2018, and his consistent work has helped the group gain steady out-patient traction in Columbia Asia Referral Hospital

Over the past many years, numerous young Orthopaedic surgeons have been part of the team as junior team members. They have personally and collectively contributed significantly to safe patient care, at the out patient clinics, emergency rooms and for in-patients admitted in the hospitals. Many of these Orthopaedic surgeons have, over the years, set up their own successful practices.

The social commitment is clear, with partnership with various NGO's to help deserving patients with deformities, coming from medically under served areas, and socially under privileged backgrounds. Setting up a permanent mechanism with these NGO's to close the loop, i.e. prepare & run Screening camps, transport patients & family into the city for detailed evaluation and for surgery if indicated, and then back to their home, support systems for them during the stressful period around surgery, and at home after surgery, and their continued care & follow up after surgery, has been the hallmark of the partnership with these NGO's.

The focus of the team has always been to help achieve the best possible solution for the patient's problem, with the long term goal of Helping Bones & Joints Work Better.
