The human body’s joints can wear away for a number of reasons – arthritis, injuries and even some diseases can affect the joints. These damaged joints can lead to pain, stiffness and hinder mobilization. Jeevan Rekha’s department of joint replacement and adult reconstruction uses a multidisciplinary treatment approach for improved patient outcomes and satisfaction.
Our team of experienced surgeons who perform many replacements in a year is solely dedicated to treating your joint problems in a comfortable environment. They work together to determine the best treatment plan for each patient.
This collaborative effort allows input from each area of expertise so that the treatment and recovery plans work together efficiently and effectively. This coordinated minimally invasive approach also provides faster recovery with less pain so that patients can get back to their activities sooner.
Jeevan Rekha Superspeciality improved management of pain following total joint replacement surgery is a critical focus of the team. We also have a dedicated surgical team for revision joint replacement surgery. A multi-modal approach allows the experts at Jeevan Rekha to determine the various sources of pain and provide a comprehensive approach to minimizing that pain throughout postoperative care and recovery.
In some cases, a non-surgical approach is more feasible, leading to a conservative method of treating joint-related problems. With minimal infection risk and reduced pain, total joint replacement patients can actually get up and walk on the first day following surgery for more accelerated rehabilitation. This more sophisticated approach to postoperative care has also led to improved patient satisfaction.
Surgery is done to replace elbow joint damaged by arthritis, fracture, or any other condition, causing activities of daily living extremely painful and difficult.
The minimally invasive hip replacement surgery involves putting the same implant that is used in a customary hip surgery but it is achieved using smaller incisions.
Hip replacement, also called total hip arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace a worn-out or damaged hip with a prosthesis (an artificial joint). This surgery may be considered following a hip fracture (breaking of the bone) or for someone who has severe pain due to arthritis. Various types of arthritis may affect the hip joint. AVN arthritis affects young patients in India and may require THR at a young age.
Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease that affects mostly middle-aged and older adults, may cause the breakdown of joint cartilage and adjacent bone in the hips. Rheumatoid arthritis, which causes inflammation of the synovial lining of the joint and results in excessive synovial fluid, may lead to severe pain and stiffness.
Traumatic arthritis, arthritis due to injury, may also cause damage to the articular cartilage of the hip. The goal of hip replacement surgery is to replace the parts of the hip joint that have been damaged and to relieve hip pain that cannot be controlled by other treatments.
The patient-specific jigs are made according to the patient’s exact knee anatomy so that the implant fits precisely.
A replacement implant that has worn out, loosened or has developed a problem can be replaced in a knee revision surgery.
This surgery does accomplish the benefits of a traditional knee replacement but through a smaller incision.
In modern total knee replacement surgery, only the worn-out cartilage surfaces of the joint are replaced. The entire knee is not actually replaced. The operation is basically a resurfacing (or “retread”) procedure. On the resurfaced area, hip or knee joints made up of specialized alloy metal and ultra high-density polyethylene (UHDP) plastic are placed.
This is a surgical procedure where only one compartment of the knee which has become damaged is replaced.
Patients with large rotator cuff tears need this surgery.
This is surgery done to replace damaged areas of a shoulder joint with an artificial implant.
This surgery allows the patients to retain most of their natural bone and replace only the diseased part of the joint instead of replacing the whole joint.
This is surgery done to replace a degenerated, worn-out disc with an artificial disc implant.
Some of the common signs and symptoms of orthopaedics are Poor mobility, muscle pain, bone pain, joint pain, joint swelling, joint deformity, joint dysfunction and paucity of movement etc. If you experience any of these symptoms then consult Top Orthopaedic Doctor in Bangalore.
An Orthopaedist is a doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal diseases. They can provide pre-surgical consultation and post-surgical follow up.
An orthopaedic surgeon is a doctor who specializes in the non-surgical and surgical treatment of musculoskeletal diseases and conditions. They perform surgery to ensure relief from back pain, ruptured discs, arthritis, bone tumours, carpal tunnel, and other injuries.
Total Knee Replacement Surgery is a type of orthopaedic surgery which is performed to replace the diseased knee joint with artificial material. This surgery is most commonly preferred to relieve chronic knee pain caused due to osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis.
Orthopaedic injury is any injury that relates to the musculoskeletal system. Often these injuries occur in bones and joints as a result of an accident or trauma to the body. The most common orthopaedic injuries are Wrist fracture, Shoulder dislocation, Stress fractures, Ankle & foot sprains, ACL tear, Rotator cuff tear and Meniscus tear.
Yes, an Orthopaedist can treat sports injuries which are mostly related to the musculoskeletal system. Some of the common sports injuries are Ankle sprain, Ligament tear, Fractures, Muscle pull, or Bruises, Groin pull, Knee injury, Tennis elbow etc.
If the patient has
Joint or musculoskeletal pain that is progressive and interfering with daily activities
Any type of arthritis
Congenital bone anomalies
Internal fixation of bones with plates and nails
Joint replacements (knee, hip, elbow, shoulder)
Revision joint Surgeries
Bone tumour excision and joint reconstructions
Arthroscopic knee, shoulder surgeries for sports injuries
Soft tissue repairs
Correction of congenital deformities and osteotomies
Spine surgeries (decompression and fusion)
In Arthritis, the damaged cartilage and bone from the joint are replaced with a prosthesis made of metal, polyethylene, ceramic, etc to regain normal joint biomechanics.
