Conditions treated under Orthopaedics:
Joint Replacement Surgery
Joint Replacement Surgery is a method in which damaged joint parts are restored with a prosthesis. Metal, ceramic, or plastic are the most common materials used in prosthetics. It accurately replicates the motion of a healthy joint. Joint replacement surgery is performed on the knee, hip, wrist, ankle, elbow & shoulder. The most commonly performed ones include hip & knee replacements.
Total Knee Replacement Surgery
Also known as Knee Arthroplasty. If a patient’s knee has serious damage by arthritis or because of any injury, it becomes difficult for them to perform everyday activities, such as climbing stairs or walking. They can also experience discomfort when sitting or lying down after a while. Doctors first recommend medication, and if medication is no longer effective, the patient may be advised to undergo complete knee replacement surgery. It is a safe procedure that helps in pain relief, corrects leg deformity & helps the patient resume normal activities.
Total knee replacement surgery consists of four steps:
Step 1: Preparation of the bone
Step 2: Positioning the metal implants
Step 3: Resurfacing the patella
Step 4: Inserting a spacer
Before a total knee replacement surgery is performed, Orthopaedics evaluate the patient’s medical history, conduct a physical examination, X-rays & other tests like MRI & blood tests. The doctor then reviews the results & discusses with the patient if total knee replacement surgery is the best option in their case to improve function & relieve pain. Other treatment options include physical therapy, medications, injections & other types of surgery. If you need knee replacement surgery, then consult the Best Knee Replacement Surgeon in Jaipur.
Hip Replacement Surgery
Hip Replacement is a procedure that replaces the hip by resurfacing the bones that intersect at the hip joint. This surgery aims to relieve hip pain and improve function. The surgeon removes the femoral head & replaces it with a prosthesis. This prosthetic femur head is shaped like a ball and fits perfectly into the rounded cup prosthesis that serves as the new pelvic socket. If the hip is damaged by fracture, arthritis, or any other condition & even if changes in lifestyle, everyday activities, medications & walking support do not help in improvement of the condition, the doctor may advise a hip replacement surgery. It is a safe surgery that effectively aids the patient by relieving pain, assisting in their return to normalcy, increasing motion, and enabling them to enjoy their daily activities.
Disc Replacement Surgery
Any persistent lower back pain that does not respond to medication may require disc replacement surgery to restore function. The painful disc is replaced with a prosthetic implant to bring back normal function. A successful disc replacement surgery increases the motion, improves the lifestyle of the patient while relieving the pain. We at Manipal Hospitals Jaipur believe in offering the patients with the right treatment & care from day 1 until discharge day. We also help the patients in knowing if they require a disc replacement surgery & offer the best expert medical advice.
Spinal Fractures & Paralysis
The cause of abnormal movement between two vertebrae is a Spinal Fracture or Spinal Instability. The nerves and spinal cord can be damaged or in pain as a result of this abnormality. Spinal fractures are mostly due to falls, injuries from sports, cars & gunshots. Symptoms of a spinal fracture include numbness, back or neck pain, weakness, muscle spasm, paralysis, tingling & bowel or bladder changes. Doctors conduct X-rays, CT Scan & MRI to diagnose the severity of the situation.
Also known as Ankylosing Spondylitis. It is a consequence of inflammation of the vertebral joints. This condition develops silently & comes in prominence once fully developed.
The three main types of spondylitis include:
1. Cervical Spondylitis
2. Lumbar Spondylitis
3. Ankylosing Spondylitis
Doctors suggest spinal & stretching exercises to help improve posture & mobility. Medications include oral corticosteroids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, tumor necrosis factor inhibitors and corticosteroid injections.
Osteoporosis weakens the bones & makes them susceptible to unexpected & sudden fractures & also leads to loss of bone mass and strength.

The signs and symptoms are back pain, drop in blood pressure, reduction in mobility, loss of height, stooped posture and an increased risk of falling.
