Area of expertise ​

Diseases / Treatments:

A fracture refers to a condition where a bone is damaged and broken, also known as a crack or break. A bone can be completely fractured or partially fractured in various patterns (such as crosswise, lengthwise, or into multiple pieces). There are different types of fractures, including stable fractures, open (compound) fractures, transverse fractures, oblique fractures, and comminuted fractures. Fractures can be caused by trauma, osteoporosis, or overuse. Treatment options include cast immobilization, functional cast or brace, traction, and external fixation. 

Joint replacement surgery is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of a damaged joint and the replacement of the damaged part with an artificial component. Joints are the points where two or more bones meet, such as the knee, hip, and shoulder. This procedure is typically performed by an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in joint surgeries. In some cases, only the damaged parts of the joint are replaced or repaired, rather than the entire joint. Treatment options for joint replacement include hip arthroplasty, total knee arthroplasty, and shoulder arthroplasty. 

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to diagnose and treat joint problems. It involves the insertion of a narrow tube, equipped with a fiber-optic video camera, through a small incision that is about the size of a buttonhole. The camera transmits a high-definition view of the inside of the joint to a video monitor. This allows the surgeon to visualize and assess the joint without the need for a large incision. In some cases, the surgeon can also perform repairs to certain types of joint damage using thin surgical instruments inserted through additional small incisions. Arthroscopy can be performed on various joints including the knee, shoulder, hip, ankle, elbow, and wrist. 

The spine, also known as the vertebral column, is a vital and intricate structure that houses the spinal cord and provides support for the body’s weight. Maintaining a healthy spine is essential for a good quality of life. However, the spine is susceptible to various medical conditions, including Spina bifida, Spondylolisthesis, and Spinal disc herniation (commonly known as a slipped disc). Additionally, it can be affected by injuries resulting from accidents or sports-related activities. Other spinal issues can arise from birth defects and the presence of spinal tumors. Treatment options for these conditions include Discectomy, Laminectomy, Spinal Fusion, Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty, as well as the use of Artificial Disks. 

Every day, sports injuries happen, ranging from minor to severe, potentially interrupting your active participation. Sports rehabilitation, a form of physical therapy, is designed to address pain, injuries, or illnesses affecting the musculoskeletal system in individuals of all ages. Through the utilization of exercise, movement, and therapeutic interventions, sports rehabilitation aims to restore function and enhance performance. Common types of sports injuries encompass ACL tears, concussions, sprains, strains, shin splints, and tennis elbow. Treatment options may involve exercise rehabilitation, manual therapy, bracing, and electrotherapy. 

Healthcare providers play a crucial role in assisting individuals with pain management by implementing personalized plans. These plans encompass a variety of approaches to address different types of pain. Strategies may include medication management, targeted injections, therapy sessions, and exercise regimens. Depending on the specific needs of the individual, healthcare providers may recommend a single approach or a combination of several methods. By adhering to a comprehensive pain management plan, individuals with chronic pain can experience improved well-being and an enhanced quality of life. Some therapeutic options include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, opioids, antidepressants, beta-blockers, and cannabis-based treatments. 

Osteoarthritis, also referred to as degenerative joint disease (DJD), is the most prevalent form of arthritis. It typically manifests as individuals grow older, although there are occasional exceptions. The progression of osteoarthritis is usually gradual, taking place over many years. Inflammation and joint injuries contribute to changes in the bone structure, deterioration of tendons and ligaments, and the breakdown of cartilage. Consequently, affected individuals may experience pain, swelling, and joint deformities. This condition primarily affects the fingers, thumbs, spine, hips, knees, and the big toes. Therapeutic approaches for managing osteoarthritis include medication, the use of supportive devices, exercise, hot and cold therapies, weight control, and, in severe cases, surgical interventions. 

Nerve entrapment, also referred to as nerve compression syndrome, occurs when adjacent tissue applies pressure on and compresses a nerve. This condition commonly affects nerves in specific areas of the body, such as the torso, limbs, and extremities. The affected nerves, known as peripheral nerves, extend from the central nervous system, which includes the spinal cord and brain. Nerve entrapment can arise from repetitive injuries, but certain medical conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, and hypothyroidism may also contribute to its development. Treatment options for nerve entrapment include nerve stimulation, MLS therapy, physical therapy, and in severe cases, surgical interventions. 

Shoulder bursitis and tendinitis are frequently encountered conditions that lead to shoulder pain and limited mobility. Tendinitis typically arises from sports-related injuries, repetitive minor trauma to the affected region, or sudden, more significant injuries. The severity of shoulder joint pain can vary, depending on the underlying cause. Potential causes include osteoarthritis, rotator cuff tears, bursitis, and shoulder joint instability. Treatment options for shoulder pain encompass nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, steroid injections, and surgical repair when necessary. 

Frequently Asked Question


What is orthopaedics?

Orthopaedics, also known as orthopedics, is a specialized field of medicine dedicated to diagnosing and treating a wide range of conditions, disorders, and injuries affecting the muscles, bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. An orthopaedic surgeon is a medical professional who specializes in this area and possesses expertise in the management and treatment of orthopaedic conditions. 

How long do joint replacements last?

Typically, the lifespan of a new joint is approximately 10 to 15 years, although outcomes can vary among individuals following arthroplasty. It is important to consult your healthcare provider for guidance on maintaining the longevity of your joint replacement. In the event that your joint replacement deteriorates after 15 years, there may be options to revise it with a new joint. 

What are the advantages of arthroplasty (joint replacement)?

Joint replacement surgeries offer the opportunity to regain mobility and freedom from discomfort and rigidity. Following a joint replacement, individuals often experience the ability to resume activities they previously cherished. These procedures have a profound impact on enhancing quality of life and overall well-being, empowering individuals to embrace an active and fulfilling lifestyle. 

Who needs arthroplasty (joint replacement)?

If you experience symptoms such as joint pain, stiffness, swelling, osteoarthritis, fractures, or hip dysplasia, your surgeon may recommend arthroplasty. 

What Is the Preparation Required For the Surgery?

A comprehensive medical evaluation is necessary to assess the patient’s suitability for surgery and their post-surgical recovery. This includes a thorough physical examination. Additionally, the surgeon may request various tests, including blood tests, urine tests, an electrocardiogram (EKG), and a chest x-ray, to aid in surgical planning. 

How Is the Surgery Performed?

The total hip arthroplasty procedure is performed in the following steps: 

The patient is administered either a spinal block or general anesthesia, and a nerve block may be given by the surgeon to manage post-surgical pain. The surgeon makes an incision on the front or side of the hip to access the affected area. The prosthetic socket is then implanted, restoring the functionality and alignment of the hip joint. 

How should I proceed for Knee Replacement?

Once the date for admission and surgery is determined, typically around 7 to 10 days before admission, we recommend conducting Blood and Urine tests and a medical checkup with a Physician. This is done to ensure your suitability for anesthesia and the surgical procedure. Additionally, it allows us to identify and address any active or recent infections in your body that may require treatment prior to the surgery. 

What kind of anaesthesia would be used for operation?

There are two commonly used types of anesthesia for Knee Replacement Surgery. The first type is Spinal Anesthesia with Epidural Analgesia, which is frequently employed. It works by numbing your legs, effectively eliminating any sensation during the operation. This is achieved by administering numbing medication around the nerves that supply your legs through a small catheter placed in your lower back. Additionally, you will receive medication to induce relaxation, and although you may fall asleep, you will still be able to breathe independently. 

How long does the surgery last?

The surgical procedure itself typically lasts around 50 minutes to 1 hour. However, additional time is needed for preoperative preparation by the anesthesiologist and certain post-surgery procedures. As a result, your stay in the operating room is expected to be approximately two to two-and-a-half hours. 

Would I require a blood transfusion during or after the operation?

The need for blood transfusion after surgery will be determined based on your pre-surgery hemoglobin level. The use of a tourniquet during surgery helps minimize blood loss. Therefore, blood transfusion is typically not required during the procedure. However, in certain cases, we may recommend a transfusion after surgery, taking into account factors such as your hemoglobin level and the amount of drainage from the surgical wound. 

Can I avoid the surgery ?

It is not recommended to avoid surgery if the patient is experiencing severe arthritis that has resulted in knee bending, deformity, and difficulty in walking. Neglecting the surgery can lead to worsening pain and a gradual decline in activity levels, including standing, walking, and outdoor work, over time. 

Is this operation necessary ?

Knee replacement surgery is not considered an urgent or emergency procedure like bypass surgery or appendicitis. The timing of the surgery can be delayed according to the patient’s preference, as long as the patient is willing to tolerate and endure the pain caused by the arthritic knee. 

When do I need surgery ?

When patient has pain every day 

Need for pain medication on a daily basis 

Pain at night preventing patient to sleep 

Pain during outdoor activities/ work 

If knees develop deformities and look crooked/bend
