My virtual hospital Orthopedic department offers expert opinion on all the disease related to bone and joint disorders We have the expertise and state of the art infrastructure to diagnose and treat all orthopedics problem.

What We Do

Joint replacement surgery

The 3 most common joint replacement surgeries are hip, knee, and shoulder.

Hip replacement

The most common reason for hip replacement is arthritis of hip joint which causes severe pain. In this surgery  the hip socket and the "ball" or head of the thigh bone (femur) is replaced with artificial device. The surgeon  inserts an artificial ball and socket into healthy bone.

Knee replacement

Knee replacement surgery is performed to treat advanced or end-stage. This surgery is recommended for severe pain in the knee due to arthritis or deformity.

With progressive arthritis ordinary activities such as walking and climbing stairs may become difficult. Knee joint deformity like Knock-knee or bow-legged deformities and unusual knee sounds (crepitus) may become more noticeable as the deterioration gets worse.

Knee replacement surgery replaces the damaged cartilage or gliding surface, as well as loss of bony structure and ligament support.

Shoulder replacement

Total shoulder joint replacement is usually needed for people who have severe osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, and for those who have had severe injury from a shoulder fracture. The main aim of total shoulder replacement surgery is to relieve pain; other goals include improving motion, strength, and function.

ACL Injury

An ACL injury is a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) — one of the major ligaments in your knee. ACL injuries most commonly occur during sports and it happens due to sudden stops or changes in direction, during landing and jumping during soccer, basketball, football and downhill skiing.

Depending on the severity of your ACL injury, treatment may include rest and exercises of thigh muscles to help you regain strength and stability or surgery to replace the torn ligament by surgery.

Symptoms

Signs and symptoms of an ACL injury include:

  • A"popping" sensation in the knee
  • Severe pain and inability to continue activity
  • Swelling of knee joint
  • Loss of range of movement
  • Feeling of instability or "giving way" with weight bearing

Complications

People with ACL injury are at higher risk of developing osteoarthritis in the knee. Arthritis may develop even if you undergo surgery to reconstruct the ligament.

Prevention

  • Exercises that strengthen leg muscles, particularly hamstring exercises, to ensure an overall balance in leg muscle strength
  • Exercises of the core, including the  pelvis , hip and lower abdomen
  • Training and exercise to learn proper technique and knee position when jumping and landing from jumps
  • Training to improve technique when performing pivoting and cutting movements

Types of ACL Surgery

Our experts use minimally invasive arthroscopic ACL reconstruction surgery. You can start walking with help next day after surgery. You will have a physiotherapist to guide you. Usually people get discharged in 2-3 days after surgery.
