Orthopedics Treatment

Some of orthopedic treatments in India are listed below.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction (ACLR)

 Among several tissue graft replacements ACLR is one of the common types. This is a restorative treatment where after surgery an injured knee is gradually being brought to normalcy. The procedure is conducted on the anterior cruciate ligament. Normally, recovery from ACLR takes 6 weeks but can extend longer depending upon specific cases like age and health factors.

Joint replacement

This is an orthopedic surgery serving two pronged objective. First is to bring back freedom of movement to the joint that was lost for orthopedic issues. Secondly, it drastically reduces the excruciating pain. Most common forms of joint replacement are the hip, knee and shoulder replacements.

In the domain of joint replacement India has made great breakthroughs. Cement less implants are used. They are custom designed to go with a perfect alignment with the concerned area and are built in a way to last long.

Spinal Surgery

Spinal surgery is recommended to treat developmental disorders of the spine, congenital issues and degeneration of the spine. It is an all-inclusive and interdisciplinary package calling the services of orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, anesthetics, neurosurgeons and rehabilitation therapists. In the area of spinal surgery, a lot of developments have been made. The field also embraces disc surgery performed on back and neck, microscopic surgeries, treatment of spinal malformations, surgical operations of spinal tuberculosis, endoscopic spinal surgeries and disc fixation for fractures.

Meniscectomy

This is performed for juvenile patients only just like knee replacement done on adult and senior patients. It is basically repairing meniscus of knee which is torn and requires surgery. The procedure involves opening up the torn meniscus and eliminating it to reduce the extreme agony the patient is suffering from. It may take 4-6 weeks to recover which again depends on the procedure and patient’s health. If it is arthroscopic surgery, recovery is much faster.
