Joint problems such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and past injuries can cause the bone and cartilage in the joint to wear away causing joint pain.This pain is not only uncomfortable but also prevents us from doing the everyday activities we enjoy.Fortunately, a diseased joint can now be replaced with an artificial joint which relieves stiffness and pain, as well as allows normal movement to once again become possible. Anyone who has ongoing (chronic) pain or loss of function in a joint may be a candidate for joint replacement surgery. However, joint pain doesn’t always require surgery.Doctors will first try other treatments before turning to surgery, including
If non-surgical treatment options have failed, joint replacement surgery can be an option. Most patients who undergo joint replacement surgery hips are over 55 years of age, but theoperation is occasionally performed on younger persons for specific conditions. The circumstances might vary but patients with the following conditions are considered for total joint replacement.
• Pain is severe enough to restrict not only work and recreation, but also the ordinary activities of daily living.
• Pain which is not relieved by conservative treatment like pain medicine, the use of a cane, and restricting activities there is significant stiffness of the hip X-rays show advanced arthritis or other problems.
Types of joint replacement surgery
At The Neuro City, our team of expert orthopaedic surgeons work closely with patient from diagnosis through treatment and recovery in order to meet the unique medical and lifestyle needs of each patient based on the kind of replacement needed.
In hip replacement, surgeons replace the ball and the socket of the hip with various forms of metal, polyethylene, and ceramic tailored to the patient's needs.
In a knee replacement, surgeons remove arthritic surfaces and resurface the knee with metal and polyethylene components.
A partial knee replacement does the same as a full knee replacement, but for only one side of the joint. This can often provide a faster recovery, but it is limited to very specific patient cases.
Shoulder replacement surgery removes the diseased and damaged bone in the shoulder.
Just as no two patients are alike, no two joint replacements are exactly the same. That is why at The Neuro City, our team of expert orthopedic surgeons work closely with the patient from diagnosis through treatment and recovery in order to meet the unique medical and lifestyle needs of each patient.
Arthroscopy - Knee
ACL is a thick of fibro collagenous tissue connecting the lower end of thigh bone and upper end of leg bone. It is one of the important ligament inside our knee joint which gives stability. It is the most common ligament injury in sports or RTA in our region.
Posterior Cruciate ligament(PCL)
Posterior Cruciate ligament(PCL) is another ligament inside the knee joint which is stronger than the ACL ligament. It is a very important structure for knee stability. It has to be reconstructed if torn completely.
Meniscus is a thick fibro cartilaginous tissue inside the knee joint. There are two menisci in the knee joint. They function as shock absorbers and provide smooth knee movement in the knee joint.
