“Medicine is not a trade; it is a calling where the physician not only thinks with his head but also with his heart.” – Prof. Dr.P.V.A. Mohandas


MIOT was founded in 1999 by Padmashri Prof. Dr. P VA Mohandas, with the vision of building a world class hospital in India. Starting out as a hospital specializing in Orthopaedics and Trauma, MIOT quickly grew into a premier multi-specialty hospital, continuously adding new departments that collaborate in the treatment of complex cases. From diagnostic scans and computer navigation to miniaturised instruments, the hospital has invested heavily in the latest technology, resulting in precise diagnoses, minimally invasive treatments and faster recovery periods.


The Beginning

The Madras Institute of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (MIOT), had its genesis as an independent wing of Vijaya Hospital, where Padmashree Prof. Dr.P.V.A. Mohandas and his team performed many a surgical impossibility in the field of Orthopaedics. Subsequently, his international travel exposed him to the highly impressive standards of hygiene and competence of medical services in the West. He grew obsessed with an overpowering desire to provide similar standards of professional health care in India. He left no stone unturned, no expense spared until in February 1999 MIOT opened its doors to the public. Thus, the seed of desire sown with dedication and nurtured with concerted effort sprouted and now stands before us as the imposing structure of MIOT – the virtual brainchild of Dr. Mohandas.


Mission Statement

To treat patients with courtesy, exceptional efficiency, with compassion extended individually, associated with prompt and timely service and sympathetic education of the patients regarding their health needs.


All these above would automatically result in “Putting the Patient First” which is MIOTs motto and logo.


Vision Statement

To bring the highest standards of expertise and skill involved in the treatment of patients, using the most recent sophisticated instrument techniques available currently in the world and to bring the benefit of these at affordable rates to the common man.


To strive for the best at all levels, which would enable MIOT to be recognized as the MAYO clinic of India by 2020.

Putting Patients First

Equipment, facilities, training programmes, nursing standards are all built around the guiding principle of patient welfare. Everything we do, we do for our patients recovery; freedom from pain; the return to perfect health; the resumption of normal life. Hence we encapsulated this in a motto – “Putting Patients First”. The symbol of a swan on every doctor’s coat and on signages all over the campus, is a constant reminder to all of us, everyday, of our motto.
