A new dimension of partial Knee Replacement Surgery is unique to this hospital.
Total Knee Replacement or ‘Arthroplasty’ is relining of the joint (bone end surfaces) with artificial parts called Prostheses. This has a new design called High Flexion Knees permitting near complete range of movement.
The Surgery re-forms the hip joint, replacing the arthritic hip joint, thus eliminating the pain-causing damaged bearing surfaces. In the 1960s, the metal ball and plastic socket for replacement of the hip joint was introduced. There are two major types of Total Hip Replacements – a cemented Prosthesis and an un-cemented Prosthesis. Both are widely used. The artificial components used today are stronger, made of chrome, cobalt, titanium or ceramic materials, and come in various shapes and designs.
This surgery is needed in arthritic elbows, shoulders and unsalvageable trauma situations of these joints. The surgery can provide useful function in these difficult situations.
Physical therapy plays a very crucial role in the rehabilitation of patients with orthopaedic conditions. Our skilled physiotherapists create customized care plans to reduce pain and improve flexibility and strength as safely and quickly as possible.
This refers to application of medical and scientific knowledge to manage, and rehabilitate injuries related to sport, exercise, or recreational activity. Common sports injuries include Concussion, Muscle Cramps, ACL Sprains, Ankle Sprain and Shin Splints. Arthoscopy is used to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint, safely and accurately. Knee and shoulder Arthoscopy is extremely popular for treating problems such as Meniscal (cartilage) tears, Chondromalacia (wearing or injury of cartilage cushion), ACL tears in the knee and Rotator Cuff Tendon tears, recurrent dislocations etc of the shoulder. The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is one of the most commonly injured ligaments of the knee and Arthoscopic ACL reconstruction with the latest grafts and implants results in highest long term success rates.
