Orthopedics


Orthopedics is concerned with the correction and prevention of deformities related to the musculoskeletal system. The treatment involves addressing various musculoskeletal problems such as spine injuries, sports injuries, degenerative disease, infections, tumors and congenital disorders. The skeleton injuries or deformities can be treated through both surgical and non-surgical methods. Proper medical care and attention can aid speedy recovery.

What We Treat !


  • Macro and micro surgeries
  • Sports injuries:
    Sports injuries occur during exercise or while participating in a sport. Sports injuries are commonly caused by overuse, direct impact, or the application of force that is greater than the body part can structurally withstand. Common injuries include bruises, sprains, strains, joint injuries and nose bleeds.
    • Sprains. Overstretching or tearing the ligaments results in a sprain. Ligaments are pieces of tissue that connect two bones to one another in a joint.
    • Strains. Overstretching or tearing muscles or tendons results in a sprain. Tendons are thick, fibrous cords of tissue that connect bone to muscle. Strains are commonly mistaken for sprains.
    • Knee injuries. Any injury that interferes with how the knee joint moves could be a sports injury. It could range from an overstretch to a tear in the muscles or tissues in the knee.
    • Swollen muscles. Swelling is a natural reaction to an injury. Swollen muscles may also be painful and weak.
    • Achilles tendon rupture. The Achilles tendon is a thin, powerful tendon at the back of your ankle. During sports, this tendon can break or rupture. When it does, you may experience sudden, severe pain and difficulty walking.
    • Fractures. Bone fractures are also known as broken bones.
    • Dislocations. Sports injuries may dislocate a bone in your body. When that happens, a bone is forced out of its socket. This can be painful and lead to swelling and weakness.
    • Rotator cuff injury. Four pieces of muscle work together to form the rotator cuff. The rotator cuff keeps your shoulder moving in all directions. A tear in any of these muscles can weaken the rotator cuff.
  • Degenerative Disc Disease:
    Degenerative disc disease is when your spinal disks wear down. Spinal disks are rubbery cushions between your vertebrae (bones in your spinal column). They act as shock absorbers and help you move, bend and twist comfortably. Everyone’s spinal discs degenerate over time and is a normal part of aging. Symptoms of degenerative disc disease The most common symptoms of degenerative disc disease are neck pain and back pain. You may experience pain that:
    • Comes and goes, lasting for weeks or months at a time.
    • Leads to numbness or tingling in your arms or legs.
    • Radiates down your buttocks and lower back.
    • Worsens with sitting, bending or lifting.
  • Brachial Plexus Injuries
    The brachial plexus is the network of nerves that sends signals from your spinal cord to your shoulder, arm and hand. A brachial plexus injury occurs when these nerves are stretched, compressed, or in the most serious cases, ripped apart or torn away from the spinal cord. Symptoms of Brachial Plexus Injury
    • Patterns of muscle weakness or paralysis of the involved upper extremity depending on which nerves of the brachial plexus are involved
    • Decreased sensation (feeling) in the involved upper extremity
    • Pain
  • Spinal Deformities:
    A normal spine has a natural curve. When viewed from the side, it resembles a gently curved S. This allows for motion as well as the ability to absorb shock and bear weight. In some cases, a person may have a deformity that causes a variation in the normal curve of the spine. Common spinal deformities include:
    • Scoliosis
    • Kyphosis
    • Lordosis
  • Trauma Injuries:
    A traumatic injury is a physical injury which occurs suddenly, with a certain degree of severity. These types of injury typically require immediate medical attention and may first be dealt with in A&E, with later referral to a particular specialist if ongoing treatment is needed or rehabilitation is necessary. Major trauma has the potential to be severe, causing disability, or in extreme cases, death.
  • Arthritis:
    Arthritis is a disease that affects your joints (areas where your bones meet and move). Arthritis usually involves inflammation or degeneration (breakdown) of your joints. These changes can cause pain when you use the joint. Arthritis is most common in the following areas of the body:
    • Feet.
    • Hands.
    • Hips.
    • Knees.
    • Lower back.
  • Total knee replacement- unilateral/ Bilateral:
    A total knee replacement is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased knee joint is replaced with artificial material. The knee is a hinge joint that provides motion at the point where the thigh meets the lower leg. The thighbone (or femur) abuts the large bone of the lower leg (tibia) at the knee joint.
  • Hip replacement unilateral/ Bilateral
    Hip replacement surgery is a procedure in which a doctor surgically removes a painful hip joint with arthritis and replaces it with an artificial joint often made from metal and plastic components. It usually is done when all other treatment options have failed to provide adequate pain relief. The procedure should relieve a painful hip joint, making walking easier.
  • Fracture neck femur
    A femoral neck fracture is a type of hip fracture of the thigh bone (femur)—just below the ball of the ball-and-socket hip joint. This type of fracture disconnects the ball from the rest of the femur. It often causes groin pain that worsens when you putting weight on the injured leg
  • Hemiarthroplasty
    Hemiarthroplasty is a surgical procedure that replaces one half of the hip joint with a prosthetic, while leaving the other half intact. There are several different options available for the type of device to be used; we prefer to use a bipolar type, which has a femoral head that swivels during movement.
  • Tibia fracture proximal Unicondylar/ Bicondylar/middle/distal-ORIF:
    A fracture, or break, in the shinbone just below the knee is called a proximal tibia fracture. The proximal tibia is the upper portion of the bone where it widens to help form the knee joint
  • Ankle fracture-ORIF/ORIF with screws/TBW:
    A broken ankle (ankle fracture) occurs when the malleoli are broken. These fractures are very common. Ankle fractures happen with twisting of the ankle, falls, car accidents, or other injury. One, two, or all three malleoli can be broken. Ankle fractures can be displaced (out of place) or non-displaced. Symptoms of an ankle fracture include pain especially with weight bearing, swelling, bruising, and problems with ankle motion. X-rays help determine if treatment from a foot and ankle orthopaedic surgeon is needed. The main goal of ankle fracture surgery is to put the ankle joint back in place and to stabilize the bones to heal. Getting the ankle joint back in place helps to decrease the risk of developing arthritis of the ankle. Stabilizing the ankle with plates and screws may allow earlier motion.
  • Arthrodesis - wrist/ankle subtalar:
    Arthrodesis, also referred to as a joint fusion, the uniting of two bones at a joint, is typically completed through surgery. In simple terms, the orthopedic surgeon manually straightens out the damaged joint, removes the cartilage, and then stabilizes the bone so that they heal together.

FAQ's


Arthroscopic surgery is a surgical procedure that is commonly performed to diagnose and treat problems within the joint. By using high-tech cameras, the orthopedic surgeon inserts a small instrument, called an arthroscope, into the joint.

Corticosteroids, more commonly referred to as cortisone, is a steroid that is produced in the body naturally. Synthetically produced can also be injected into soft tissues and joints to help decrease inflammation.

Joint replacement surgery is a surgical procedure that is performed to replace an arthritic or damaged joint with a new, artificial joint, called a prosthesis. Joint replacements can be performed on every joint in the body, but most commonly performed in the knee, hip, shoulder, and elbow.

The word arthritis literally means "joint inflammation." Arthritis refers to a group of more than 100 rheumatic diseases and other conditions that cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in joints.

Bursitis is an inflammation or irritation of a bursa, which is a fluid-filled sac located around joints. Bursitis causes a reduction in or a loss of motion at the affected joint. Bursitis typically occurs in the heel, hip, knee, shoulder, and thumb.
