Knee joint is composed of three bones ,femur (thigh bone), tibia ( shin bone) and Patella (knee cap). The surfaces of these bones are covered with cartilage which allows smooth and pain free movement .
Knee joint is composed of three bones ,femur (thigh bone), tibia ( shin bone) and Patella (knee cap). The surfaces of these bones are covered with cartilage which allows smooth and pain free movement . When the cartilage is worn out or damaged it results in pain, swelling , stiffness, impaired mobility and deformity. Treatment of the knee problems varies based on the condition and may involve conservative approach or surgical options.
Spinal fusion surgeries like Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion ( TLIF) and Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion ( PLIF) are performed in patients who present with Chronic Back Pain with or without radiating leg pain, numbness , weakness in legs and any bladder / bowel involvement and who have not improved despite adequate trial with conservative treatment.
The surgical procedure involves opening the affected area of spine from the posterior aspect, decompressing the spinal cord and the nerves and stabilizing spine with pedicle screws along with Rods. Fusion is achieved by putting autogenous bone graft with or without an Interbody Cage
Discectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove herniated Disc which is causing compression on the nerves leading to Sciatica like pain , numbness, weakness and Bladder/ Bowel Incontinence.
The procedure can be performed either open or Endoscopic route. Patients are discharged either on the same day or on the next day after surgery.
Osteoporosis presents a unique surgical challenge to clinicians as the bones are extremely soft and vulnerable to break even with a minimal injury. Doctors at Orthospine India have performed procedures including use of Fenestrated ( Cemented ) pedicle screws and Hydroxyapatite coated screws for better purchase in the soft bone. Vertebral compression fractures in elderly are also treated by procedures like Vertebroplasty, Kyphoplasty and Vertebral Stentoplasty.
We at Orthospine India believe that mobility is essence of life. We offer Cervical and Lumbar Disc Replacements, posterior dynamic instrumentation etc in order to preserve movement at the affected level.
