Orthopaedics focuses on diagnosing, treating, and preventing musculoskeletal disorders. Treatments include both surgical and non-surgical methods such as medication, physical therapy, and surgery to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and restore function. Orthopaedics plays a crucial role in improving the quality of life for individuals with musculoskeletal conditions.
At Mediglobe Medical Tourism, we understand the significance of effective orthopaedic care and provide access to world-class treatments for patients seeking relief from orthopaedic issues.
Total joint replacement Surgery
Total joint replacement surgery is a procedure in which a damaged joint, such as the hip, knee or other joints, is replaced with a prosthetic device. This surgery is typically recommended for patients with severe joint pain or mobility limitations due to arthritis, injury, or other conditions. Total joint replacement surgeries are performed by highly skilled surgeons in specialized hospitals with state-of-the-art facilities.
Knock knees correction
Knock knees correction is a surgical procedure that involves correcting the alignment of the legs in individuals who have a condition known as genu valgum, where the knees touch while the feet are apart. This corrective surgery is typically recommended when non-surgical treatments have failed, and the condition is causing significant pain or mobility issues.
Foot and Ankle surgery
Foot and ankle surgery involves various procedures that aim to address problems and conditions affecting the feet and ankles. Some of the common foot and ankle surgeries include bunion removal, ankle replacement, and Achilles tendon repair. These surgeries are typically performed to alleviate pain, restore mobility, and improve the function of the affected area. In some cases, foot and ankle surgeries may be elective, while in others, they may be necessary to prevent further damage or complications. With advances in medical technology and skilled healthcare professionals, foot and ankle surgery has become a safe and effective treatment option for patients seeking relief from foot and ankle conditions.
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to diagnose and treat joint problems. During the procedure, a small camera called an arthroscope is inserted into the joint through a small incision. This allows the surgeon to view the joint on a monitor and perform various surgical procedures using small instruments. Arthroscopy is commonly used to treat conditions such as torn cartilage, ligament injuries, and joint inflammation. The procedure is often performed on an outpatient basis and has a shorter recovery time compared to traditional open surgery.
Coccyx excision, also known as coccygectomy, is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the tailbone or coccyx. This procedure is usually done to alleviate chronic pain in the coccyx area due to injury or other medical conditions. It is often performed as a last resort when non-surgical treatments have failed to provide relief. Coccyx excision is typically performed by a qualified orthopedic or neurosurgeon and can require a period of recovery and rehabilitation.
Orthopedic prosthesis refers to the artificial replacement of a joint or bone to restore mobility and improve quality of life for patients suffering from joint disease or injury. This can include hip, knee, shoulder, and ankle replacements, as well as prosthetics for amputees. The procedure involves the insertion of a custom-made implant to mimic the function of the natural joint or bone. These surgeries are typically performed by orthopedic surgeons and can significantly improve the patient’s mobility and comfort.
Osteotomy is a surgical procedure that involves cutting and reshaping bones. It is typically performed to correct deformities, alleviate joint pain, or improve joint function. This procedure may be recommended for patients with conditions such as arthritis or congenital deformities that have not responded to non-surgical treatments. Osteotomy can be performed on various bones in the body, including the knee, hip, and ankle, and is often performed as a planned procedure rather than on an emergency basis.
Arthroscopic ACL reconstruction Surgery
Arthroscopic ACL reconstruction surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to reconstruct a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee joint. During the procedure, small incisions are made in the knee to insert a tiny camera and surgical instruments, allowing the surgeon to visualize and repair the damaged ligament. This surgery is commonly performed on athletes who have suffered a sports injury, but can also be necessary for non-athletic individuals who have experienced a severe knee injury.
Arthroscopic Meniscus Repair Surgery
Arthroscopic meniscus repair surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed to repair a torn meniscus in the knee joint. During the surgery, a small camera and surgical instruments are inserted through small incisions in the knee, allowing the surgeon to view and repair the damaged meniscus. This procedure is typically recommended for patients who have a torn meniscus that is causing pain, swelling, or limited mobility in the knee. Arthroscopic meniscus repair surgery is commonly performed as an outpatient procedure, allowing patients to return home the same day as their surgery.
Arthroscopic Mosaicplasty is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat articular cartilage defects in the knee joint. The procedure involves removing healthy cartilage tissue from a non-weight bearing part of the knee and transplanting it into the damaged area. The transplanted cartilage grows and integrates with the surrounding tissue, restoring the joint’s function and reducing pain. This procedure is performed using an arthroscope, which is a small camera that allows the surgeon to see inside the joint and perform the procedure through small incisions.
Limb lengthening surgery
Limb lengthening surgery is a complex orthopedic procedure that aims to increase the length of the bones in the arms or legs. It involves the use of specialized techniques such as distraction osteogenesis or gradual bone lengthening to stimulate the growth of new bone tissue. This surgery is often recommended for people who have suffered from a severe injury, birth defect, or a medical condition that has resulted in stunted growth. Limb lengthening surgeries are performed by highly skilled orthopedic surgeons and require extensive post-operative care and rehabilitation.
Quadricepsplasty is a surgical procedure that involves the release of the quadriceps muscle in order to improve knee mobility. It is typically performed on patients who have limited knee flexion due to muscle contracture or scarring. The surgery involves making an incision in the thigh and carefully releasing the affected muscle tissue. Quadricepsplasty is often performed as part of a larger orthopedic treatment plan and can be beneficial for patients who have suffered from traumatic injuries or chronic conditions affecting the knee joint. The procedure may require a period of rehabilitation and physical therapy to optimize outcomes.
