Dr. Siddharth jauhar talks about Orthopaedics and Maharaja Agrasen hospital,New delhi.

Maharaja agrasen hospital is a 400 bedded hospital located in Punjabi bagh, New delhi. It’s a trust run hospital so we have both general and private OPD. The hospital has close proximity to rohtak road so we get a lot of trauma cases and RTAs. This is the principle reason why hospital is good for orthopaedics.

 There are three units in orthopaedics  department  with good amount of work load,there are 6 consultant and you get to see all kinds of operations in trauma ,arthroscopy, arthroplasty and spine surgeries. Advantage working with this institution is u get a good amount of hands on experience and you see a wide variety of cases.

These are some of the routine cases that you get :

 Femur Nailing ,

Tibia nailing,

Bipolar prosthesis,

Tension band wiring,

Dynamic hip screw,

Proximal femur nailing,


Patella fractures

Olecranon fractures

Bimalleolar fractures

Almost all trauma cases you get to do independently and you assist all surgeries like spine surgeries ,arthoscopy,Hip replacement and Knee replacement.

We have to do casualty night duties so during which we get a lot of trauma patients.We have both general and private OPDS. We get around 100 patients daily in general opd which you manage with the consultant.

When it comes to academics , there are no definite classes or lectures but whenever there is a good case the consultant will show you the case and ask questions and we have discussions during surgeries with consultants. The pass rate is about average but it mainly depends on you, if you study you will pass, poor pass rate is a thing of the past .

Speaking of other departments OBG and Medicine departments are good . In OBG 2 out of 2 cleared theory and one cleared practical, in Medicine 3 out of 4 cleared theory and 2 cleared practical. Stipend is 48400 and no accommodation is available. Stipend has recently been increased.

Overall its a good place to get hands on exposure in orthopaedics.
