The Most Common Orthopaedic Surgeries
Posted On: December 13, 2017
Orthopedic surgery brings in the ideal solution for treating the musculoskeletal system in case of damage, injury or any other condition.
The human musculoskeletal system consists the bones, joints, and soft tissues like muscles that protect and allow easy movement of bones and joints, ligaments that connect the bones and tendons that connect the muscles to bones.
Depending on the injury or damage type, Orthopaedic surgery is performed on different parts such as the shoulder, ankle, hip, knee, wrists, elbow and spine. The treatment could be carried out through an open surgery or via arthroscopy in Lucknow and Ahmedabad.
Orthopedic surgery is generally carried out under regional, general or local anesthesia. The treatment process mainly helps treat many health disorders related to the musculoskeletal system, such as amputation, traction, hand reconstruction, joint replacements as well as spinal fusion.
An orthopedic surgery process can also include strains and sprains, broken bones, and dislocations of joint. The broken bones or damaged connective tissues are held together with the use of various prosthetic types such as screws, wires, pins and tongs.
The various treatments that form a part of orthopedic surgery not only help relieve the pain and discomfort caused by damaged bone but even ease muscle functions and allow you to carry out the day-to-day activities smoothly. The treatments are focused on restoring your joint movement with increased flexibility.
Some of the commonly recommended orthopedic treatment types are:
Knee Joint Replacement: It is one of the most commonly done orthopedic surgeries. A knee joint replacement is carried out to alleviate pain, improve disability and restrained mobility that usually occurs because of arthritis. A knee replacement is often recommended when your knees have got damaged due to intensifying arthritis, trauma, or any other rare damaging disease of the joint. There are different types of surgeries associated with knee joint replacement, of which total knee replacement is the most common one. Shalby Hospitals Ahmedabad has been carrying out painless knee replacement surgeries for years now, under the leadership of Dr. Vikram I. Shah who is credited with the surgical process innovation of “Zero Technique”. Over the past two decades, Dr. Shah and his expert team have successfully carried out thousands of knee joint replacement surgeries.
Hip Joint Replacement: It is a treatment process, referred mostly when other pains relieving therapies fail to alleviate pain and discomfort from arthritis of the hip. The treatment procedure replaces the hip joint with a prosthetic implant. Hip joint replacement surgeries are generally conducted to relieve pain occurring due to arthritis or severe physical joint damage as part of the hip fracture. The process even improves your walk and other bodily movements. Apart from hip arthritis, a hip replacement surgery can even be recommended for other disorders such as tumor growth in the hip joint, and fracture in the hip joint. Hip joint replacement can also be used for a health disorder known as avascular necrosis of the hip. After the hip replacement surgery, one gets back all flexibility required to carry out the daily tasks.
Arthroscopy: Arthroscopy in Lucknow and Ahmedabad (also known as arthroscopic surgery) happens to be a minimally invasive surgical process in which an examination and sometimes treatment of damage of the interior of a joint is performed using an Arthroscope, a type of endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision. Arthroscopic procedures can be performed either to evaluate or to treat an array of orthopedic conditions including torn floating cartilage, torn surface cartilage, ACL reconstruction and trimming of damaged cartilage. Arthroscopic surgery is often the most recommended treatment as it brings out effective results by easing joint pain and stiffness in a better way as compared to open surgery. The recovery period post an arthroscopy process is usually less than other methods.
Paediatrics Orthopaedic: As part of the Orthopaedic surgery, Paediatric Orthopaedic offers treatment for traumatic, congenital, developmental deformities of extremities and spine in children.
