Pediatric Fractures

Pediatric Fractures

Fractures are more common in children due to their activities as well as their bone properties. Children are more active than adults and management of fractures in them also differs as compared to that in adults. Fractures occur when the bone is subjected to excessive stress than normal.

Burners and Stringers

Burners and Stringers

Burners and stingers are common neck or shoulder injuries characterized by intense burning or stinging pain which can radiate from the neck to the hand.

Workplace Injuries

Workplace Injuries

Injuries at the workplace range from minor cuts or bruises which are non-fatal to injuries such as severe fractures or trauma that can be fatal. Injuries can occur due to slips, repetitive motion, hazards from machinery, falling from a height, burns, or any kind of violent act.

Biceps Pathology

Biceps Pathology

Biceps pathology is the study of diseases or conditions affecting the biceps muscle including cause, origin, diagnosis, and nature of the disease.

Bone Spurs

Bone Spurs

Bone spurs, also called osteophytes, are bony projections that develop along the edges of a bone or in the area where muscles, tendons, and ligaments are attached. Bone spurs are often found in joints and also in the bones of the spine.

Tendon Injuries

Tendon Injuries

Tendons are powerful fibrous cords which connect muscle to bone. When you overstretch a tendon, it can rupture (tear) completely or partially. This rupturing of the tendon due to overstretching is known as a tendon injury.

Muscle Strains

Muscle Strains

A tear in the muscle fibers caused by either a fall or direct blow to the muscle, overstretching and overuse injury can be called a muscle strain. Muscle strains often occur in the hip region whenever a muscle contracts suddenly from its stretched position.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis also called degenerative joint disease, is the most common form of arthritis. It occurs most often in older people. This disease affects the tissue covering the ends of bones in a joint (cartilage).

Chondral Lesions or Injuries

Chondral Lesions or Injuries

A chondral injury refers to an injury of the articular cartilage of the hip.

Chondral injuries can result from various hip conditions such as labral tears, loose bodies, posterior dislocation, slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE), dysplasia, osteonecrosis, and degenerative arthritis.

Loose Bodies

Loose Bodies

Loose bodies are small loose fragments of cartilage or a piece of bone that floats around the joint. The loose bodies can cause pain, swelling, locking and catching of the joint.

Periprosthetic Fracture

Periprosthetic Fracture

Periprosthetic fractures are fractures or breaks of bone associated with an orthopedic implant, whether it is a joint replacement or internal fixation device. Periprosthetic fractures normally occur with implants associated with a hip, knee, shoulder, or elbow joint replacement.

Tendinopathies

Tendinopathies

Tendons are tough cord-like tissues made up of collagen protein that connect your muscles to your bones. Tendinopathy is a breakdown of collagen in the tendon resulting in pain along with reduced range of motion and flexibility.

Muscle and Joint Pain

Muscle and Joint Pain

Muscle pain or myalgia is a discomfort experienced in the muscle tissue and can be felt practically anywhere in the body.

Joint pain is a discomfort arising out of any tissues within your joint including ligaments, cartilage, bone, muscles, or tendons.

Muscle Injuries

Muscle Injuries

A muscle injury also called a muscle strain or a pulled muscle can occur when a muscle is overstrained. This can happen during sports or regular activities.

Tendinitis

Tendinitis

Tendons are fibrous cords that anchor muscles to bones. Tendinitis is a condition in which a tendon becomes inflamed or irritated. Although any tendon can be affected, commonly the tendons around the joints such as the shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, and ankles are involved.

Sprains and Strains

Sprains and Strains

Sprains and strains are injuries affecting the muscles and ligaments. A sprain is an injury or tear of one or more ligaments that commonly occurs at the wrist, knee, ankle or thumb. A strain is an injury or tears to the muscle. Strains occur commonly in the back and legs

Psuedogout

Psuedogout

Pseudogout is a type of arthritis that is characterized by the development of a painful swelling that occurs suddenly in one or more joints. It is also known as calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease (CPPD) because of the type of crystals that are deposited on the joint during the disease process.

Biomechanics

Biomechanics

Biomechanics is the application of mechanical principles to the study of forces acting on the body during movement. It involves not only the analysis of the musculoskeletal system but also the mechanics of other systems such as blood circulation and renal function.

Trauma

Osteoarthritis Management

Osteoarthritis Management

Osteoarthritis also called degenerative joint disease, is the most common form of arthritis. It occurs most often in older people. This disease affects the tissue covering the ends of bones in a joint (cartilage).

Orthobiologics

Orthobiologics

Orthobiologics are natural substances such as cells, tissue, blood components and growth factors that are harnessed to aid in the treatment of orthopedic injuries or conditions.

Fracture Care

Fracture Care

A bone fracture is a medical condition in which a bone is cracked or broken. It is a break in the continuity of the bone. While many fractures are the result of high-force impact or stress, bone fractures can also occur because of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis.

Tendon Repair Surgery

Tendon Repair Surgery

Tendon repair surgery is performed to repair a torn or ruptured tendon and restore normal function and movement to the joint. It is usually performed by arthroscopy. An arthroscope is a thin, pencil-like device fitted with a camera and a light source.

Compartment Pressure Testing

Compartment Pressure Testing

Compartment pressure testing is the gold standard test to confirm the diagnosis of chronic exertional compartment syndrome, a life-threatening limb condition commonly seen in athletes and runners.

Benefits of Arthroscopic Surgery

Benefits of Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopic surgery, also known as arthroscopy, is a surgical procedure to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint using a specialized instrument known as an arthroscope.

Outpatient Joint Replacement

Outpatient Joint Replacement

Outpatient joint replacement is a surgery that does not require an overnight hospital stay. Joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which the worn, damaged surfaces of the joint are removed and replaced with new artificial parts.

Ligament Reconstruction

Ligament Reconstruction

Ligament reconstruction is surgery to reconstruct a torn ligament using a graft or artificial prosthesis. Ligaments are tough, non-stretchable fibers that hold your bones together.

Cartilage Repair and Transplantation

Cartilage Repair and Transplantation

The articular surfaces of the body’s joints are lined by hyaline cartilage, a smooth tissue that serves as a shock absorber and allows easy movement of the bones within the joint.

Osteochondral Autograft Transfer System (OATS)

Osteochondral Autograft Transfer System (OATS)

Osteochondral autograft transfer system (OATS) is a type of cartilage transfer procedure.

Cartilage transfer procedures involve moving healthy cartilage from a non-weight-bearing area of the knee to a damaged area of the cartilage in the knee.

Surgery for Athletes

Surgery for Athletes

Surgery for athletes is different from non-athletes as it is performed with the intention of returning the athlete to their sports activity at the earliest. Early recovery is important as the more time spent away from the sport, the more difficult it is to get back to competitive form.

Exercise for Arthritis

Exercise for Arthritis

The term arthritis literally means inflammation of a joint, but it is generally used to describe any condition in which there is damage to the cartilage, the tissue that lines the ends of bones in a joint.
