Treatment & Procedures

Laminectomy

This is a surgical procedure that removes the Lamina, the rear side of the vertebrae. The surgery is also referred to as a decompression surgery and relieves pressure on the spinal cord caused by overgrowth of bone (bone spur) in the spinal canal. Laminectomies are more common among older people who are prone to developing bone spurs.

Osteotomy

This is a surgical procedure to correct misalignment in the skeleton where a bone is longer or shorter than its opposite. The misalignment is corrected by cutting or reshaping the bone to bring it back to normalcy. An osteotomy is often done as a way to delay or avoid hip or knee replacement surgery in the future.

Pinched nerves…

Treatment for this condition depends on the cause and severity of nerve compression. Typically, pinched nerves are treated with physiotherapy, steroids (NSAID's corticosteroids, etc. However, in some cases, orthopedic surgery may be required to remove scar tissue or any other obstructive material that is interfering with the nerves.

Joint Reconstruction or Replacement


Joint reconstruction covers a wide variety of conditions ranging from small repairs to total joint replacement. The type of treatment most suitable for any condition depends on the type and severity of the disorder. We at Manipal Whitefield take particular care to develop the most effective treatment option based on the individual need of a patient.

Some joint reconstruction surgery includes:

 

Joint Replacement Surgery


Performed on the hip, shoulder or knee, in joint replacement prosthetic joints are used as regular joints, but are made of high quality durable metal and quality plastic to fit together and perform smoothly.

 

Arthroscopy


It is a minimally invasive technique with the help of which orthopedic surgeons make minor adjustments to joints through tiny incisions and the use of a camera. Arthroscopy is used in the treatment of knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows, wrists and hips.

 

Osteotomy


Performed on the knee or hip for younger patients who are reluctant to undergo joint replacement surgery, in osteotomy a section of bone near the damaged joint is removed. This relieves the pain by shifting the weight away from the damaged cartilage to an area with healthier cartilage.

 

Small Joint Surgery


When it is difficult to use joints in the hands or feet because of damage, the joints are replaced to bring back limited movement and activities.

 

Resurfacing Surgery


Less complicated than hip replacement, resurfacing surgery is beneficial for younger patients.

There are several other conditions which may call for a joint replacement. The most common of these include rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Joint replacement is the most viable solution for worn-out joints. Joint replacement ensures pain relief, improved mobility and improved quality of life.

Hip, knee, and shoulder surgeries are three most common joint replacement surgeries performed. 

 

HIP REPLACEMENT


The most common conditions which require hip replacement is chronic hip pain and disability due to arthritis. The most common forms of this disease include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and traumatic arthritis. 

Osteoarthritis refers to age-related “wear and tear” type of arthritis, and occurs in people 50 years of age and older and in people with a family history of arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease and is the most common type of a group of disorders termed “inflammatory arthritis.” Post-traumatic arthritis occurs after a serious hip injury or fracture.

In a total hip replacement (total hip arthroplasty), the damaged bone and cartilage is removed and replaced with prosthetic components.

 

Total Knee Replacement


A total knee replacement is a surgical procedure in which the damaged knee joint is replaced with artificial material. The artificial parts used in a total knee replacement surgery are referred to as the prosthesis. Knee replacement surgeons take utmost care to make the process less painful to the patient and recover sooner.

 

Knee Arthroscopy


Knee arthroscopy is recommended in a painful condition that does not respond to nonsurgical treatment.


Common arthroscopic procedures for the knee include:
 

  • Removal or repair of a torn meniscus

  • Reconstruction of a torn anterior cruciate ligament

  • Treatment of knee sepsis (infection)

  • Removal of inflamed synovial tissue

  • Removal of loose fragments of bone or cartilage

  • Trimming of damaged articular cartilage

  • Treatment of patella (kneecap) problems

 

Shoulder Arthroscopy


During shoulder arthroscopy, the orthopedic surgeon inserts a small camera, called an arthroscope, into your shoulder joint. The surgeon uses the images seen through the camera to guide miniature surgical instruments. Thin surgical instruments and very small incisions (cuts) ensure less pain, and shorten the time it takes to recover and return to normal activities.

 

Common arthroscopic procedures include:
 

  • Rotator cuff repair

  • Bone spur removal

  • Removal or repair of the labrum

  • Repair of ligaments

  • Removal of inflamed tissue or loose cartilage

  • Repair for recurrent shoulder dislocation


At Manipal Whitefield, our service offerings include prevention, diagnosis and surgical and nonsurgical treatment of problems impacting the bones, joints, muscles, nerves, ligaments and tendons.
