The Madras Institute of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (MIOT) is a multi-specialty hospital in Manapakkam, Chennai, India. It is a specialty hospital in the field of joint replacement surgeries, orthopaedics and trauma. Founded by P. V. A. Mohandas, the hospital was established in February 1999 on a 14-acre (5.7 ha) land with German collaboration, with an initial investment of 500,000. The hospital has 500 beds and employs 170 physicians. The hospital receives nearly 3,500 foreign patients every year, contributing 25 percent of the hospital's patients. North and East Africa account for a chunk of these foreign patients.
MIOT Hospitals began as an independent entity, specialising in orthopaedics, at Chennai-based Vijaya Hospital in 1988. It moved to Manapakkam, a suburb of Chennai, in 1999. Its founder and managing director, P. V. A. Mohandas, is also chief surgeon in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. His son Prithvi Mohandas has specialised in revision hip surgery. Started as a centre for orthopaedics, the hospital has become a multi-speciality one dealing with thoracic and cardiovascular care, cardiology, nephrology, neurosurgery, oncology and radiation oncology, hip-replacement surgery, knee replacement, accident surgery, plastic surgery, craniofacial and cosmetic surgery, paediatrics, obstetrics, and so on.
In 18 May 2012, a heart revive centre was inaugurated at a cost of 300 million, with a full-fledged Cathlab and an Electro Physiology Laboratory for the treatment of arrhythmia, or irregular heart beat. In the same year, the hospital started the MIOT International Centre housing the departments of oncology, radiation oncology, medical oncology, surgical oncology, liver transplant centre and bone marrow transplant centre. There are also plans to open a heart transplant centre.
The hospital group is investing 2,800 million on a 600-bed 6-star facility for cancer treatment named 'MIOT International' under construction near the existing facility. The 13-floor building will house 14 operation theatres, a bunker, a sterilisation unit, 500 premium rooms and 100 beds for critical care and is being constructed by L&T. It will employ about 100 physicians.
