Joint Replacement

Joint Replacement Surgery

Orthopaedic surgery or Orthopaedics (also spelled Orthopaedics) is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopaedic surgeons use both surgical and non-surgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumours, and congenital disorders. Chaitanya hospital has an experienced team of orthopaedic surgeons and specialists to treat musculoskeletal injuries and diseases. From broken bones to joint replacements to complex spine problems, we offer advanced technology, medical expertise and compassionate care to meet each patient's individual needs. Chaitanya hospital's orthopaedic experts mainly deal into athletic injuries, accidents, arthritis, bone diseases, cancer and other concerns. We engage a talented multidisciplinary team to help return patients to a mobile, pain-free lifestyle as fast and completely as possible.

Total Hip Replacement

Total hip replacement (THR) is a surgical procedure that relieves pain from most kinds of hip arthritis, improving the quality of life for the large majority of patients who undergo the operation. Patients commonly undergo THR after non-operative treatments (such as activity modifications, medications for pain or inflammation, or use of a cane) have failed to provide relief from arthritis symptoms. Most scientific studies that have followed patients for more than 10 years have found "success rates" of 90 percent or more following traditional THR. Distilled to its essentials, THR involves surgically removing the arthritic parts of the joint (cartilage and bone), replacing the "ball and socket" part of the joint with artificial components made from metal alloys, and placing high-performance bearing surface between the metal parts. Most commonly, the bearing surface is made from a very durable polyethylene plastic, but other materials (including ceramics, newer plastics, or metals) have been used. Patients typically spend a few days in the hospital after the procedure (5 to 10 days is most typical), and some patients benefit from a short inpatient stay in a rehabilitation facility after that to help transition back to living independently at home. Most patients will walk with a walker or crutches for 4 to 6 weeks, most will use a cane for another 4 to 6 weeks after that; after that, the large majority of patients are able to walk freely. A bewildering number of different implant designs, bearing surface materials, and surgical approaches have been tried to achieve one seemingly straightforward goal: improving the quality of life for patients who have hip arthritis. As with any important life decision, it makes good sense to get educated on those issues as they pertain to your hip. We provide total hip replacement surgery at very affordable price around 5500 us dollar for each joint, which include hospital stay, medical cost, implant cost, physiotherapy.

Total Knee Replacement

A total knee replacement is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased knee joint is replaced with artificial material. The knee is a hinge joint which provides motion at the point where the thigh meets the lower leg. The thigh bone (or femur) abuts the large bone of the lower leg (tibia) at the knee joint. During a total knee replacement, the end of the femur bone is removed and replaced with a metal shell. The end of the lower leg bone (tibia) is also removed and replaced with a channeled plastic piece with a metal stem. Depending on the condition of the kneecap portion of the knee joint, a plastic "button" may also be added under the kneecap surface. The posterior cruciate ligament is a tissue that normally stabilizes each side of the knee joint so that the lower leg cannot slide backward in relation to the thigh bone. In total knee replacement surgery, this ligament is retained, sacrificed, or substituted by a polyethylene post. Each of these various designs of total knee replacement has its benefits and risks. We provide total knee replacement surgery at very affordable price around 5500 us dollar for each joint, which include hospital stay, medical cost, implant cost, physiotherapy.

Shoulder Replacement

Shoulder replacement surgery is an option for treatment of severe arthritis of the shoulder joint and severe communicated fracture. Total shoulder replacement surgery alleviates pain by replacing the damaged bone and cartilage with a metal and plastic implant. The shoulder joint is a ball-and-socket joint, much like the hip joint. The ball is the top of the arm bone (the humours), and the socket is within the shoulder blade (scapula). This joint allows people an enormous range of motion at the shoulder. When shoulder replacement surgery is performed, the ball is removed from the top of the humours and replaced with a metal implant. This is shaped like a half-moon and attached to a stem inserted down the center of the arm bone. The socket portion of the joint is shaved clean and replaced with a plastic socket that is cemented into the shoulder blade. Also do reverse shoulder arthoplasty.

Elbow Replacement

Total elbow Arthoplasty is the replacement of a native elbow joint with a synthetic elbow joint (usually made of metal and plastic). Like other major joints, the elbow can also be affected by osteon- or rheumatoid arthritis, as well as by past injury. These conditions can cause pain and stiffness that may be alleviated by surgery. In elbow replacement surgery, a loosely hinged prosthesis is used to replace the arthritic ends of the humours (upper arm bone) and ulna (one of the lower arm bones) at the joint where they meet. Surgery is done through an incision at the back of the elbow, where there are fewer blood vessels and nerves. The arthritic surfaces are removed and the replacement hinge, composed of plastic and metal, is connected to the two bones. The aim of elbow replacement surgery is to give you a pain free, mobile elbow that enables you to perform normal everyday activities. It is recommended that after this surgery the arm is not used to carry heavy objects or for heavy manual activities as these may lead to early failure of the replacement Postoperative care begins with up to three weeks of immobilization in a splint. Physical therapy, which is key to returning the elbow to good functionality, begins after this period.
