Spinal Fusion/Vertebrae Surgery
Spinal fusion may alleviate symptoms including:
Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure used to correct problems with the vertebrae of the spine. Much like the process of "welding," spinal fusion surgery fuses together any damaged or painful vertebrae, healing them into a single, solid bone. Imaging tests, such as x-rays, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans are helpful to locate the exact area of pain to guide the surgical process.
Total knee replacement surgery is often recommended to replace the worn surfaces of the knee joint. During surgery, the bottom of the femoral bone (thigh bone) is removed and a prosthesis is inserted. The top of the tibia (lower leg bone) is also removed and a prosthesis is attached.
Knee replacement surgery, known as arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure that repairs knee damage, generally caused by arthritis. Metal and plastic caps are placed on the ends of the bones that form the knee joint, along with the kneecap. Patients with severe arthritis or those who have suffered a severe knee injury are often candidates for a knee replacement.
Various forms of arthritis are known to affect the knee joint. Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease, causes the breakdown of joint cartilage and often damages the adjacent bone in the knees. Rheumatoid arthritis causes inflammation of the synovial membrane in the knee can lead to pain and stiffness. Traumatic arthritis, caused by injury, often damages knee cartilage.
What is a knee replacement surgery?
Knee arthroscopy is an outpatient surgery that utilizes an arthroscope, which is inserted into the knee joint through two small incisions. The purpose of the arthroscopy is to allow the surgeon to see inside the joint without making a large incision. The surgery is used for diagnosis, to remove loose tissue or ligaments or shave the knee cap.
Knee Arthtoscopy is most commonly used for:
A total hip replacement also known as Total Hip Arthroplasty, is a critical surgery for people with hip pain caused by degenerative joint disease or rheumatoid arthritis. This surgery restores joint motion and regenerates muscle and ligament function.
