What is Knee Joint Replacement?
Knee pain caused by arthritis can severely affect your ability to lead a full and active life Most knee replacements are performed to relieve severe pain from arthritis or injury in the knee that limits an individual’s ability by replacing the diseased part of the joint with artificial joint components Artificial knee replacement surgery is becoming an increasingly common way of treating the condition in older people. The prosthesis is made of metal alloys, plastics, and polymers. It mimics the function of a knee.
Why Knee Joint Replacement is needed?
The main reason for replacing any arthritic joint with an artificial joint is to stop the bones from rubbing against each other and causing pain. Replacing the painful arthritic joint with an artificial joint gives the bones new surfaces, which move smoothly without causing pain. The goal is to help you return to your normal activities with less pain and greater freedom of movement.
What is Hip Joint replacement?
It is a long-established procedure for the treatment of Hip Arthritis. The purpose of total hip replacement is to remove the two damaged and worn parts of the hip joint- the hip socket (acetabulum) and the ball (femoral head) – and replace them with smooth, artificial implants called prostheses, which help make the hip strong, stable, and flexible again.
Why hip Joint Replacement is needed?
You may need hip replacement surgery when arthritis limits your everyday activities such as walking and bending, resting without pain, or moving or lifting your leg without stiffness. Hip replacement is recommended only after careful diagnosis of your joint problem. Surgery is likely to be needed when you have little pain relief from non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or if other treatments, such as physical therapy, do not relieve hip pain.
Minimally Invasive Microdiscectomy
What is Minimally Invasive Microdiscectomy?
Discectomy is done to treat a herniated disc in the spine, also known as a ‘slipped’ disc. The surgery involves the removal of the part of the disc that is putting pressure on the nerve.
Why Microdiscectomy is done?
When you have a herniated disc, it means that a part of the normal spinal disc has moved out of place. This may press against the spinal cord or the nerves that surround the spinal cord, thus causing your symptoms like pain, numbnee of lower limbs etc. Your doctor may recommend a discectomy to relieve your symptoms.
What is Laminectomy?
Laminectomy is a surgical procedure to reduce the pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerve roots caused by spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal, this puts pressure on the spinal cord, which is filled with nerves, and leads to pain, numbness, or weakness in the legs, back, neck and arms.
One of the most common reasons for laminectomy is intervertebral disc herniation. If the herniated disc is in the lumbar region, this can cause sharp and continuing back pain, a weakening of the muscles in the leg, and some loss of sensation in the leg and foot. It may also be difficult to raise the leg when it is held in a straight position.
A herniated disc in the neck region can cause symptoms including pain, numbness and weakness in the arm. A herniated disc may be triggered by twisting the back while lifting something heavy. During the spine surgery, the surgeon will attempt to relieve the pressure on nerves and nerve roots by removing the pulpy material that is protruding from the disc.
Arthroscopic Meniscus Repair
What is Arthroscopic Meniscus Repair?
Arthroscopic meniscus repair is a surgical procedure to look and repair torn or trim knee cartilage. The Meniscus is a special Cartilage inside the knee that fills in the space between the thigh bone and leg bone.
Why Arthroscopic Meniscus Repair is needed?
Arthroscopy is the best way to treat many knee injuries, including meniscal tear. The small wounds from the procedure are less painful than those from open surgery
Arthroscopic ACL / PCL Repair
What is ACL / PCL Repair?
Surgery for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or POSTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT (PCL) injuries involves reconstructing or repairing the ACL. .It uses a graft to replace the ligament. The most common grafts are autografts using part of your own body.
Why ACL/PCL Repair is needed?
ACL tears normally occur when a person suddenly changes direction or turns heavily on the knee, such as when playing football, when landing from a basketball jump, or from falling down when skiing.
Arthroscopic Rotator Calf Repair or Reconstruction
What is Arthroscopic Rotator cuff repair?
It is surgery to repair a torn tendon in the shoulder.
Why is Arthroscopic Rotator cuff repair done?
It is needed-Patients undergoing arthroscopic surgery can have varying diagnoses and pre-existing conditions. As a result the surgeon can do this for many conditions like clean out damaged tissue, remove bone spurs, and reattach damaged tendons to the bones where they have torn off.
Internal Fixation of Fracture-Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF) – Open reduction refers to open surgery to set bones, as is necessary for some fractures. Internal fixation refers to fixation of screws and/or plates, intramedullary bone nails to enable or facilitate healing.
IIizarov Fixation for limb lengthening and complex fracture – In an external fixator, metal pins or screws are placed into the bone through small incisions into the skin and muscle. The Ilizarov apparatus is a type of external fixation used in orthopedic surgery to lengthen or reshape limb bones.
Management of Poly Trauma Patient – A team of orthopedic doctor, Neurosurgeon, Maxillofacial Surgeon look after any Poly Trauma Patient.

The MRI scan is an imaging test that allows physicians to assess a patient’s spinal anatomy and investigate an anatomical cause of the patient’s back pain and neck pain
Machine Used – MRI Signa HDXT 1.5T
A 3 D CT surface reconstruction is useful in rotational and shear vertebral injuries (Magerl type C injury).
Machine Used – GE Bright Speed Elite
This test is done to reveal problems with bone metabolism. Bone metabolism refers to the process in which bones break down and rebuild themselves. Also used to determine whether cancer has spread to the bones from another area of the body.
Machine Used – Siemens Symbia T2
A three phase bone scan is used to diagnose a fracture when it cannot be seen on an X-ray. It is also used to diagnose bone infection, bone pain, osteomyelitis, as well as other bone diseases.
Machine Used – Siemens Symbia T2
PET CT helps our doctors determine if the cancer has spread to areas such as the bones or lungs.
Machine Used – Siemens mCT 128 with Ultra HD Technology
The name derives from the C-shaped arm used to connect the x-ray source and x-ray detector to one another. C-arms have radiographic capabilities, though they are used primarily for fluoroscopic intraoperative imaging during surgical, orthopedic and emergency care procedures.
