The health and healing
  2. 2. of joints, tendons, ligaments and bones come under the aegis of orthopedic care. Purpose of Orthopedic surgery: Orthopedic surgery corrects problems that arise in the skeleton and its attachments, the ligaments and tendons. It may also deal with some problems of the nervous system, such as those that arise from injury of the spine. These problems can occur at birth, through injury, or as the result of aging. They may be acute, as in injury, or chronic, as in many aging-related problems. Orthopedics comes from two Greek words, ortho meaning straight and pais meaning child. Originally orthopedic surgeons dealt with bone deformities in children, using braces to straighten the child's bones. With the development of anesthesia and an understanding of the importance of aseptic technique in surgery, orthopedic surgeons extended their role to include surgery involving the bones and related nerves and connective tissue. Orthopedic Surgery in India: Forerunners Healthcare organizes for all major medical treatments and surgeries for different orthopedic procedures. India boasts about a number of specialist orthopedic surgeons who have made their mark across the world.
  3. 3. Orthopedic Procedures Knee Replacement Knee replacement, Arthroplasty or Computer Assisted Surgery for Joint Replacement (CASJR) is a surgical procedure to replace a damaged knee with prosthesis (an artificial joint). This surgery may be considered for someone who has severe arthritis or a severe knee injury. The most common cause of chronic knee pain and disability is arthritis. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and traumatic arthritis are the most common forms. Total Knee Replacement is considered in the following conditions: • Severe daily pain • Pain is severe enough to restrict work, recreation and daily living • Significant stiffness of the knee • Significant instability of the knee • Deformity of the knee (lock-knees or bowlegs) Total Hip Replacement / Partial Hip Replacement A Total Hip Replacement (THR) - also called as Hip Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure that re-forms the hip-joint. Osteoarthritis of the hip is the most common diagnosis that leads to hip replacement. Osteoarthritis is caused by wear and tear. It affects
  4. 4. the cartilage surfaces of the ball-and-socket joint of the hip. The cartilage wears out. Pain and stiffness result. Patients with hip arthritis have difficulty walking, climbing stairs and performing routine daily activities. Other conditions that can cause destruction of the hip joint include: • Loss of blood supply to the head of the thighbone • Rheumatoid arthritis (an inflammatory autoimmune disease) • Previous injury or trauma • Infection • Developmental abnormalities in the hip Bone Marrow Transplant Major hospitals in India have oncology units comprising surgical oncology, medical and radiation there by as well as the crucial Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT). The BMT unit with high pressure hip filers has helped achieve a very high success rate in the various types of transplantation. What is bone marrow? The bone marrow is a soft, spongy tissue found inside the bones. The bone marrow in the hips, breastbone, spine, ribs, and skull contain cells that produce the body's blood cells. The bone marrow is responsible for the development and storage of about 95 percent of the body's blood cells. The three main types of blood cells produced in the bone marrow include:
  5. 5. • Red blood cells (Erythrocytes) - carry oxygen to the tissues in the body • White blood cells (Leukocytes) - help fight infections and to aid in the immune system • Platelets - help with blood clotting Each of these cells carries a life-maintaining function. The bone marrow is a vital part of the human body. Other Orthopedic surgery Procedures done in India includes: • Hip Resurfacing / Surface Replacement Arthroplasty • Shoulder Replacement • Minimal Access Spine surgery • Unicondylar Knee Replacement • Neck & Elbow Replacement • Arthroscopic surgery: Key hole surgery for disorders of knee and shoulder • Pediatric Bone & Joint Surgeries • Osteoporosis • ACL repair Preparation for Orthopedic surgery: Prior to any surgery, the patient undergoes extensive testing to determine the proper corrective procedure. Tests may include X-
  6. 6. rays, computed tomography scans (CT scans), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), myelograms, diagnostic arthroplasty, and blood tests. The orthopedist will determine the history of the disorder and any treatments that were tried previously. A period of rest to the injured part may be recommended before surgery is prescribed. Patients undergo standard blood and urine tests before surgery and, for major surgery, may be given an electrocardiogram or other diagnostic tests prior to the operation. Risks of Orthopedic surgery: As with any surgery, there is always the risk of excessive bleeding, infection, and allergic reaction to anesthesia. Risks specifically associated with orthopedic surgery include inflammation at the site where foreign material (pins, prosthesis) is introduced into the body, infection as the result of surgery, and damage to nerves or to the spinal cord.
