There is a wide range of treatments provided by the best orthopaedic hospitals in India. Below we have provided a list of some of the major procedures that are provided by some good hospitals dealing with orthopaedics. The major types of services provided are: Total Knee Replacement
In this, the knee cartilage is replaced with an implant made of metal and plastic, sometimes using bone cement or a material to allow bone tissue growth into it.
Total Joint replacement
This is a surgical procedure where the unhealthy part of damaged joint is replaced with artificial joint so that it moves like an original healthy joint.
The procedure involves removal of ball and socket of the arthritis affected joint with new ball and socket which eases movement in the repaired joint. The surgery differs depending upon the type of material used and the design of the implant.
This surgery basically involves replacement of the damaged shoulder bone and cartilage with a metal and plastic implant much like in hip replacement. It improves the motion range of the shoulder joint.
The major reason for a spine surgery is to remove back pain, to improve spine functionality, to ease pain cause by osteoporosis, lower back pain and the like. There are many surgeries that come under this category like laminectomy, diskectomy, fusion, spinal decompression, etc. This kind of surgery must be attempted only at a good orthopaedic hospital.
This involves surgery with the help of arthroscope by visualizing the surgical area for knee, shoulder and some other replacements using this procedure. The major benefit of arthroscopy is smaller incision which heals comparatively faster than other surgeries, as well as less suffering to the affected tissue.
This is done basically for injuries caused to the ankle by overuse, stress fractures, sprains, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. An ankle surgery is performed when the conservative treatment like medication or physical therapy doesn’t work.
