Arthritis and Joint Replacement

We are dealing with osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, post-traumatic arthritis, post-infection arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, post AVN arthritis etc. We treat our patients as per the stage of the disease. Initially we give supportive and muscle strengthening treatment. We educate our patients to modify their daily activities. We prescribe medicines only in specific cases like rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis. Rarely we prescribe intra-articular injections to tide over a painful phase in the disease process.

We specialize in MIS technique of Joint Replacement. In this technique no muscle is damaged. If we have to cut a muscle, we repair it at its exact anatomical site so that the biomechanics of the joints are not disturbed. Hence the replaced joint performs just like a normal joint. The advantages of MIS technique are :

  • Minimum blood loss
  • Short surgical time
  • Minimal post operative discomfort
  • Cosmetic scar
  • Early mobility
  • Short hospital stay
  • Fast track return to normal life
