Orthopaedic surgery or orthopaedics is that branch of surgery which is concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. In these types of surgeries the Orthopaedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumours, and congenital disorders.

Below please find a brief on various Orthopaedic surgeries:

Knee Replacement
  • Brief: Knee Replacement or Knee Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability. It is also one of the most common and popular surgery that provides doctors a lucid view through the arthroscope of the knee, helping them identify and treat knee problems. New technical inventions have introduced high definition monitors and high resolution cameras that have made Knee Arthroscopy a very successful tool for treating knee issues.
  • Benefits: The benefits of Knee Replacement are that it has less risk, smaller incision, less blood loss and the recovery time is faster.
  • Total days stay required for the procedure: The patient would be required to be in town for 7 days to undertake this procedure.
  • Surgery time (in hours): The Knee Replacement surgery takes about 3 hours of time.
  • Stay in Hospital: In most of the cases, the patient is required to stay for 2 days in the hospital.
Hip Joint Replacement
  • Brief: Hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which the hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant. The hip joint is made up of a ball-and-socket. The socket is made of bone and cartilage, and the ball is the top of the thigh bone, also known as the femoral head. Sometimes, either the socket of the hip and/or the thigh bone is injured or becomes diseased. This can result in pain, trouble with walking, and taking care of everyday tasks.
  • Benefits: The benefit of Hip Joint Replacement is that any deformity can be corrected on the Hip. It certainly reduces the pain the patient had experienced which in turn results in increased muscle strength and improved ability to do activities of daily life.
  • Total days stay required for the procedure: The patient would be required to be in town for at least 10 days to undertake this procedure.
  • Surgery time (in hours): The Hip Joint replacement surgery takes about 2 hours of time.
  • Stay in Hospital: In most of the cases, the patient is required to stay for 3 to 5 days in the hospital. However full recovery from the surgery takes about 3 to 6 months.
Hip Resurfacing
  • Brief:  The Hip Resurfacing or Hip Resurfacing Arthroplasty is a break through over the traditional total hip replacement. In hip resurfacing, the femoral head (head of the thighbone) is not removed, but is instead trimmed and capped with a smooth metal covering. The damaged bone and cartilage within the socket is removed and replaced with a metal shell. However, in a traditional total hip replacement, the head of the thighbone (femoral head) and the damaged socket (acetabulum) are both removed and replaced with metal, plastic, or ceramic components.
  • Benefits: Hip Resurfacing is among the most successful of elective surgical interventions; it has enabled drastic improvements in function and quality of life for millions of patients.  Hip Resurfacing is indicated for advanced hip disease and does not carry the potential risk which the conventional Hip Replacement has like risk of postoperative dislocation, bone loss extending to the metaphyseal and diaphyseal femur, and gross migration of the femoral component.
  • Total days stay required for the procedure: The patient would be required to be in town for atleast 10 days to undertake this procedure.
  • Surgery time (in hours): The Hip Resurfacing surgery takes about 3 hours of time.
  • Stay in Hospital: In most of the cases, the patient is required to stay for 3 to 5 days in the hospital.
Knee Arthroscopy
  • Brief: Arthroscopy means to look within the joint. Knee arthroscopy is a technique used to diagnose and treat problems in the knee joint. During the procedure, the surgeon will make a very small incision and insert a tiny camera commonly known as an arthroscope into your knee. This allows him or her to view the inside of the joint on a screen. The surgeon can then investigate a problem with the knee and, if necessary, correct the issue using small instruments within the arthroscope. Your doctor may recommend knee arthroscopy if you have a condition that does not respond to non-surgical treatment but has not progressed so far as to indicate a total knee replacement is needed.
  • Benefits: Knee Arthroscopy has a number of potential benefits like less dissection and less trauma to the soft tissues surrounding the knee. Less trauma hence results in less pain after the surgery as well.
  • Total days stay required for the procedure: The patient would be required to be in town for atleast 10 days to undertake this procedure.
  • Surgery time (in hours): The Knee Arthroscopy surgery takes about 3 hours of time.
  • Stay in Hospital: In most of the cases, the patient is required to stay for 3 to 5 days in the hospital.
Shoulder Arthroscopy
  • Brief: Arthroscopy means to look within the joint. Shoulder arthroscopy is a technique used to diagnose and treat problems in the Shoulder joint. During the procedure, the surgeon will make a very small incision and insert a tiny camera commonly known as an arthroscope into your Shoulder. This allows him or her to view the inside of the joint on a screen. The surgeon can then investigate a problem with the Shoulder and, if necessary, correct the issue using small instruments within the arthroscope.
  • Benefits: There are many benefits of choosing shoulder arthroscopy,  not only will you gain the benefits of a repaired shoulder but arthroscopy will also allow for quicker healing when compared to more serious surgeries. The minimum invasiveness of the procedure will allow for quicker healing, less scarring and scar tissue.  Arthroscope procedure cause minimal blood loss. This allows for less bruising and pain during recovery.
  • Total days stay required for the procedure: The patient would be required to be in town for atleast 10 days to undertake this procedure.
  • Surgery time (in hours): The Shoulder Arthroscopy surgery takes about 1 to 3 hours of time.
  • Stay in Hospital: In most of the cases, the patient is required to stay for 1 to 3 days in the hospital.
Shoulder Reconstruction
  • Brief: Shoulder reconstruction surgery can be done arthroscopically that involves use of smaller incisions and tiny instruments to perform the repair. Some patients may need an open surgical procedure which involves a larger incision over the shoulder to perform the repair. Shoulder reconstruction surgery involves repair of the torn or stretched ligaments so that they are better able to hold the shoulder joint in place. During the surgery the torn labrum is reattached back to the shoulder socket with the help of special anchors and the overstretched capsules and ligaments are tightened.
  • Benefits: One of the major benefits of Shoulder reconstruction surgery is that it tightens the shoulder static stabilizers to repair a shoulder with frequent dislocations. This surgery also helps regain the lost flexibility.
  • Total days stay required for the procedure: The patient would be required to be in town for at least 10 days to undertake this procedure.
  • Surgery time (in hours): The Shoulder Reconstruction surgery takes about 3 to 4 hours of time.
  • Stay in Hospital: In most of the cases, the patient is required to stay for 3 days in the hospital.
Spine Disc Replacement
  • Brief: Spine disc replacement aims to replace a bad disc that is causing pain with a mobile artificial disc rather than removing the disc and fusing the vertebrae together, which is what takes place in a spinal fusion. The artificial disc allows the spine to maintain its natural mobility and theoretically prevents abnormal motion or stress on adjacent spinal segments. This abnormal motion or stress can result in the degeneration that is believed to be the cause of long-term spinal fusion failure.
  • Benefits: Patients who undergo Spinal Disc Replacement return to work earlier than others. Patients don’t experience any device failures or breakages in this procedure. Fewer patients require revision surgery procedures than those in the spinal fusion treatment.
  • Total days stay required for the procedure: The patient would be required to be in town for at least 10 days to undertake this procedure.
  • Surgery time (in hours): The Spine Disc Replacement surgery takes about 1.5 to 3 hours of time.
  • Stay in Hospital: In most of the cases, the patient is required to stay for 3 days in the hospital.
Endoscopic Spine Surgery
  • Brief: Endoscopic Spine Surgery or Minimally invasive spine surgery (MIS) is a broad term covering several different surgical approaches, but all are designed to access the spinal column while avoiding substantial damage to the surrounding tissue that occurs during open surgery.
  • Benefits: The major benefit of the Endoscopic Spine Surgery is that the operation is performed with minimal trauma to any surrounding tissue, as muscles, ligaments and tendons need not be disrupted. Faster recovery of the patient is expected in the Endoscopic Spine Surgery.
  • Total days stay required for the procedure: The patient would be required to be in town for at least 10 days to undertake this procedure.
  • Surgery time (in hours): The Endoscopic Spine Surgery takes about 1 to 3 hours of time.
  • Stay in Hospital: In most of the cases, the patient is required to stay for 3 days in the hospital.
