Causes and Treatment of Orthopaedics & Joint Replacements conditions

 

Joint replacement specialists at STAR Hospital hold in-depth knowledge and experience in a wide range of surgical solutions, making use of the latest technologies for treatment, bearing in mind your condition and safety. A joint pain doesn’t necessarily require surgery, though they do indicate the need of clinical attention. Unless it is a critical condition, our team of orthopaedics will try some means, such as medication, physiotherapy, steroids, or bracing to check the progress of your health. If they do not seem to cure your ailment, we follow one or more of the below procedures to relieve you from pain. 

  • Partial and total joint replacement surgery: Usually such surgeries are recommended for aged people. We also recommend this for the younger ones who have damaged joints due to injury or other physical activity. In this process, our surgeons replace the joints in parts or completely, depending on the condition, with an artificial joint known as prosthesis. These joints last for a period of 15 to 20 years. 
  • Hip replacement: The ball and socket of the hip are replaced with metal, polyethylene, and ceramic materials to provide you better mobility after the surgery. 
  • Knee replacement: The arthritic region of the body is replaced with metal and polyethylene components to restore flexibility and to reduce pain.
  • Alternative treatment: Based on your medical history and disorder, we also look for other means to treat your condition. We always prefer to go for the least invasive solutions which offers you the most benefit. 
  • Therefore, for certain conditions we also recommend non-operative methods such, surgical options may include arthroscopy, core decompression, or osteotomy.
  • Arthroscopy: This is one of the most common minimally invasive surgical procedure to treat joint related problems. 
  • Core decompression: This surgery is often suggested in place of a hip replacement, or in conditions where the bones have zero blood supply and eventually become non-functional. In this process, our surgeons drill a hole into the bone to relieve its pressure, thereby, allowing new blood vessels flow in the area. 
  • Osteotomy: Or as its meaning goes, “cutting of bone”, in this procedure we reshape the deformed bones causing any kind of pain to you. Usually, such treatment is recommended for severe arthritis cases.
