Orthopedics is related with the surgery of musculoskeletal system of a human body. It includes both spine surgery and joint replacement surgery.
The shoulder has a greater range of motion than any other joint in our body, but because it can perform so many movements, the shoulder is vulnerable to stress, injury, and arthritis. Arthritis is a major cause of shoulder pain.Arthritis is a common disease that causes joint pain, stiffness, and swelling. It affects the cartilage in joints. Cartilage is a very tough, shock absorbing material that covers the ends of many of our bones. The cartilage forms a smooth surface and allows the bones in our joints to glide easily during motion. Arthritis can cause the cartilage to wear away. Loss of the protective lining can cause painful bone on bone rubbing.Severe shoulder arthritis can be quite painful and can cause restriction of motion. While the symptoms of shoulder arthritis may be tolerated with some medications and lifestyle adjustments, there may come a time when surgical treatment is necessary. Shoulder replacement surgery, also called Arthroplasty, involves the replacement of the damaged bone and cartilage with metal and plastic implants. Shoulder Arthroplasty is a treatment option that can relieve pain and restore function.Very often, people tolerate their symptoms for long periods of time because the arm is not a weight bearing extremity.
The knee problems are found commonly in all sections and age groups of people, this is more so often in females after the age 50 years. about 15% of the populations is suffering from one or the other type of joint problem viz. arthritis. "Arthritis" is a general term describing the disease of any joint knee, hip etc. where the joint is damaged or destroyed by a disease or injury. The most common type of arthritis is called 'Osteoarthritis', which is degenerative in nature.It usually results from constant knees stress e.g. due to overweight. Heredity sometime also contributes.
The second commonest type of arthritis is called 'Rheumatoid arthritis in Knee Joint Replacement.This disease usually affects multiple joint of the body like hand, elbows, shoulders, knees, hips and feet in Knee Joint. The cause of it is not well known.
However, there is evidence to suggest that it is an 'autoimmune' disease, where some tissues in the body (under the influence of some triggering agent) produce chemicals which attack the lining (synovium) of the Knee Joint Replacement irreparably.
As an initial treatment of arthritis, conservative treatment in form of medicines, Physiotherapy is used Knee Joint Replacements.
Hip Replacement 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 to Hip Replacement. 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 For Hip Replacement In India.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 Hip Replacement(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.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.
