A minimally invasive surgical procedure in which an examination and sometimes treatment of damage of the interior of a joint is performed using an arthroscope, a type of endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision. Arthroscopic procedures can be performed either to evaluate or to treat many orthopaedic conditions including torn floating cartilage, torn surface cartilage, ACL reconstruction, and trimming damaged cartilage.
Hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which the hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant. Hip replacement surgery can be performed as a total replacement or a hemi (half) replacement. Such joint replacement orthopaedic surgery is generally conducted to relieve arthritis pain or fix severe physical joint damage as part of hip fracture treatment. A total hip replacement (total hip arthroplasty) consists of replacing both the acetabulum and the femoral head while hemiarthroplasty generally only replaces the femoral head.
Knee replacement, or knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability. It is most commonly performed for osteoarthritis, and also for other knee diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. In patients with severe deformity from advanced rheumatoid arthritis, trauma, or long-standing osteoarthritis, the surgery may be more complicated and carry higher risk. Osteoporosis does not typically cause knee pain, deformity, or inflammation and is not a reason to perform knee replacement.
Foot diseases such as bunions, Tailor’s bunion, hammer toes; high arch, flat feet, and clubfoot are very common and painful conditions that cause physical deformities. Patients usually experience swelling, soreness when moving, and difficulty with footwear.
When conservative therapy is impractical or fails to relieve the patient’s symptom, or simply cannot correct the appearance of the feet, Reconstructive Surgery aims to relieve pain, inflammation, stiffness and physical deformity.
Reconstructive and cosmetic surgery can help repair birth defects, diseases, injuries and other foot problems that can benefit patients' medical and aesthetic needs.
Surgery can involve any part of the foot and may involve tendon, bone, joint, tissue or skin repair. Reconstructive surgery can often be performed on an outpatient basis with minimally invasive techniques, such as arthroscopy or endoscopy.
Scoliosis is the medical term for a sideways curve in one or more segments of the spine, which is often accompanied by slight twisting or rotation of the trunk. Children and adults suffering from scoliosis who have very severe curves (more than 50 degrees) will probably be prescribed surgery to lessen the curve and prevent it from getting worse. In these cases, extended wait times may adversely affect a patient’s condition and the outcome of the surgery.
