SERVICES OFFERED AT AASHKA HOSPITAL INCLUDES
JOINT REPLACEMENT SERVICES:
The Centre offers all types of joint replacement to restore freedom of movement and relieve the pain of degenerated and diseased joints. Surgery often provides dramatic improvement in daily functioning for people with arthritis. Medications and physical therapy services are helpful adjuncts.
Some of the latest techniques offered are cementless implants for a customised fit thus prolonging the life of the replacement.
TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT :
This is usually undertaken in patients who have had their hip joints destroyed due to injury or diseases like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. Hip resurfacing and replacements using ceramic liners are done for relatively young active patients.
TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT :
For knees that are severely damaged due to disease or injury, total knee replacement is the best option. The end of the thigh bone is normally replaced with a metallic component and the upper end of the leg bone with a polyethylene component with metal base plate. Most patients are ambulant from the day after surgery and are discharged the fifth day. The latest Hi-flexion fixed bearing and mobile bearing designed knee components and those specifically designed for women (gender solution knees) are routinely used.
TOTAL SHOULDER / ELBOW REPLACEMENT :
Joints like the elbow and shoulder, which are damaged due to diseases like rheumatoid arthritis or due to traumatic injury are treated with total joint replacement.
Traditionally, many bone injuries caused by trauma were repaired using immobilisation devices placed outside the body. Our orthopaedic surgeons are masters in using devices that are surgically placed on or in the injured bones. Those devices provide strong support and can be used in treating fractures of the pelvis, thighbone, hip, foot, and ankle.
The facilities in arthroscopy include the video arthroscope for the knee, shoulder and hip, the smaller scope for wrist elbow and ankle, complete power shaver system, pressure sensitive pump for joint distension and arthroscopic electronic power system.
We offer excellent care in sports related injuries of the joints and ligaments. Arthroscopic techniques are used in cruciate ligament repair, meniscal repair , cartilage transfer, MPFL reconstruction, and multiple ligament injured knee. Ilizarov technique is also available.
We treat orthopaedic disorders as well as correction of congenital deformities like club foot, congenital rocker bottom foot and club hand on a routine basis. Severed limb implantation is done with the help of experienced plastic and vascular surgeons. Management of fracture pelvis and acetabular fracture fixation are undertaken routinely.
