Kauvery Hospital has launched the department of Orthogeriatrics for comprehensive orthopedic care in an extension of its healthcare services to the senior citizens. The department combines the medical specialities of orthopedic and geriatrics to provide holistic care with top-of-the-line infrastructure and patient-friendly amenities.

Orthogeriatrics department houses 15 in-patient beds, senior friendly amenities such as low level cots and bathrooms with grab bars, spacious corridor for physiotherapy and rehabilitation apart from advanced medical equipment and devices.

“The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in its study jointly brought out with Help Age International, points that the number of people in the 60+ age group will increase from the current 100 million to 323 million by 2050, constituting 20 percent of India’s total population by then. It further predicts the number of people over 80s to increase seven fold. It is also of concern that the study discloses, that around one-fifth of the elderly live alone or only with spouses in both rural and urban areas. These findings underline the fact that with a growing elderly population in the country, there is a need to strengthen geriatric care services so that the increasing health care demands of the elderly can be met”, said Dr. Aravindan Selvaraj, Chief Orthopaedic Surgeon & Executive Director, Kauvery Hospital.
