Knee replacement surgery is a treatment for pain and disability in the knee. The knee joints can be affected by various types of arthritis. The most common condition that indicates the need for knee replacement surgery is severe osteoarthritis. It is characterized by the breakdown of joint cartilage where damage to the cartilage and bones limits movement and causes pain. This degenerative joint disease affects mostly middle-aged and older adults. Rheumatoid arthritis, which causes inflammation of the synovial membrane and results in excessive synovial fluid, can lead to pain and stiffness. Traumatic arthritis (caused due to injury), fractures, torn cartilage, or torn ligaments may lead to irreversible damage to the knee joint. People with severe degenerative joint diseases may be unable to perform normal activities that involve bending at the knee, such as walking or climbing stairs because they are painful.
Knee replacement is a surgical procedure to resurface a knee damaged by arthritis. Metal parts are used to cap the ends of the bones that form the knee joint, along with the kneecap. The goal of knee replacement surgery is to resurface the parts of the knee joint that have been damaged and to relieve knee pain that cannot be controlled by other treatments.
If your hip has been damaged by arthritis, a fracture, or other conditions, common activities such as walking or getting in and out of a chair may be painful and difficult. Your hip may be stiff, and it may be hard to put on your shoes and socks. You may even feel uncomfortable while resting. If medications, changes in your everyday activities, and the use of walking support do not adequately help your symptoms, you may consider hip replacement surgery.
Hip replacement surgery is a safe and effective procedure that can relieve your pain, increase motion, and help you get back to enjoying normal, everyday activities. Hip replacement (total hip arthroplasty) is a surgery to replace a worn-out or damaged hip joint. The surgeon replaces the old joint with an artificial joint (prosthesis). The goal is to replace the parts of the hip joint that have been damaged to help relieve hip pain that can’t be controlled by other treatments.
Recommendations for surgery are based on a patient's pain and disability, not age. Most patients who undergo total hip replacement are aged 50 to 80, but we evaluate patients individually. Total hip replacements are performed successfully at all ages and are particular pain relievers for elderly patients with degenerative arthritis.
An orthopaedic complex traumatic injury is any severe injury affecting the musculoskeletal system, including bones, muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments. Because the musculoskeletal system affects the skeletal support and stability as well as all movement and function, it is critical to have an expert in orthopaedic trauma evaluate the injuries. We consistently deliver leading-edge, comprehensive orthopaedic trauma care and are uniquely qualified to treat some of the most complex and life-threatening orthopaedic injuries.
We have a dedicated team of orthopaedic trauma surgeons to cater to any emergency or traumatic injury arising from road accidents or sports injuries, and even post-trauma deformity corrections.
We have a depth of expertise in every level of injury, including trauma, fracture treatment and even general orthopaedic injury care. A traumatic injury can cause immediate pain and concerns, but can also lead to post-traumatic arthritis – a common form of osteoarthritis that can result from any traumatic injury. If orthopaedic traumatic injuries are not treated and healed correctly, they can come back in later years to cause additional problems.
Our team provides every phase of care for optimal recovery – from initial orthopaedic traumatic injury diagnosis and treatment to physical therapy and comprehensive rehabilitation. Because we have every level of orthopaedic subspecialty care under our system, we can get you to regain movement better and faster.
The recovery from injuries and surgeries takes different treatments and methods for a complete cure. Part of the recovery process is rehabilitation which helps restore the lost functional ability back to the individual. This requires consistent and persistent efforts with the guidance of experienced therapists. Rehabilitation is not limited to recovering from certain illnesses; it also includes recuperation from prolonged acute or chronic diseases.
We provide comprehensive care involving various therapies and take an interdisciplinary approach to enable the affected individual to regain quality of life and return to participating in everyday activities. Our goal is to provide smooth and speedy rehabilitation by way of rendering quality services at a reasonable cost.
