Dr Ashwani Maichand organized a ‘Free Health Check-up Camp’ for Arthritis Patients

A free medical health camp was organized by Dr Ashwani Maichand, Delhi’s top Orthopedic, on August 13 at Minomax Knee & Shoulder Clinic in West Delhi. Being socially cognizant, Dr Ashwani Maichand is dedicated towards making the city ‘free from pain’.

The health camp aimed at promoting wellness of arthritis patients seeking a right treatment for their joint pain. The camp also helped on building awareness regarding nutrition, hygiene and sanitation amongst people.

The objective of the camp was to provide free Bone Mineral Density Test and a Neuropathy Test to the patients. In addition, the first 20 patients availed a free Vitamin D Test. Apart from these facilities, the registered patients were given 50% off on X-rays.

The camp saw a huge footfall of patients suffering from chronic joint inflammation, swelling, snapping, instability, locking, stiffness, and other bone or muscle related ailments.

“Society is an integral part of our existence and therefore its wellness is very important for overall growth. With our unswerving efforts we always strive to improve the health conditions of people,” said Dr Ashwani Maichand.

Over 15 million adults in India fall prey to arthritis every year. In fact, a number of studies point towards alarming conclusions that say India might become the ‘Osteoporosis Capital’ by 2025 with over 60 million people suffering from severe joint defects. The disturbing trend needs to be arrested before it becomes endemic.

Dr Maichand holds an extensive experience of more than three decades as an orthopedist. He has been associated with prominent healthcare institutions like Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, and Fortis Hospital. Currently, he is practicing as a senior consultant and director at the Institute of Bone and Joint in MGS Hospital, Punjabi Bagh.

Dr Maichand has performed over 6,000 successful joint surgeries in his career so far. He specializes in undertaking orthopedic corrective operations by employing the advanced Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) technique. This advanced surgical procedure guarantees the best results with minimal blood loss, pain, scarring, immobilization and inconvenience.

Dr Maichand’s Minomax Knee & Shoulder Clinic is planning to conduct health awareness camps for arthritis patients in other areas of Delhi as well. Besides medical camps, Dr Maichand is also engaged in several other programs to promote good health amongst the underprivileged children.
