DR. & MRS. J. R. DONALDSON MEMORIAL ORTHOPEDIC APPLIANCES AND REHABILITATION CENTER

The department of Prosthetics & Orthotics ( Orthopaedic Appliances and Rehabilitation Centre ) Wanless Hospital, Miraj Medical Centre was Established and fully functional in the year 1965 by Dr. James R.Donaldson (Orthopaedic Surgeon) catering to the needs of patients from the states of Maharashtra, Karnataka and Goa.

The Department also is equipped with four guest rooms for patients travelling out of the region.

The cost of the Below Knee Prosthesis range anywhere from (Rs. 7,000 to Rs 2,00,000) and such facilities are available at private Corporate Hospitals, which are affordable only to the upper middle and rich classes. The Government has a State funded hospital in cities like Mumbai and Pune where Appliances are either provided at subsidized cost or free. However because of huge number of patients registration patients generally have a wait period of 12 Months to 18 Months and thus results at these centers are not optimal.

The department provides subsidized care with a very high level of professional skill and a compassionate Christian approach. Our results are comparable with the best Corporate Hospitals in India but at less than half the cost.


A person inflicted with partial or total disability because of a disease, accident or congenital abnormality can become a burden on the family. The concept of Rehabilitation is not very popular in India yet. It is indeed very important to arouse the public awareness about physical and medical rehabilitation.

We at Wanless Hospital, Miraj Medical Centre.are committed to change this stumbling block into a stepping stone for these unfortunate and help them run this great race of life successfully, with dignity and grace.

If the physically challenged receive proper care at the right time they certainly go on to be active and responsible members of their family and society. It is an investment for the future to build a healthy nation.
