Surgery is the last line of treatment when all other modalities failed. Joint replacement surgery ensures correcting a deformity and restoring mobility. Joint replacement surgery is performed to treat advanced arthritis. Candidates for joint replacement surgery often have severe joint pain, stiffness, limping, limitation of mobility and pain interfering with day to day activities like cycling, putting socks., nature calls etc.,
Arthroscopy may be done to analyse and treat joint problems. During this procedure, an instrument called arthroscope is inserted into your joint through a small cut in the skin. The arthroscope is provided with a light source and a video camera attached to it. Images captured by the camera can be watched on a video monitor. These magnified images provide a clear picture to the physician who can analyse the problem inside the joint. Surgeons can even correct some of these problems with thin surgical instruments inserted through additional small incisions. Is normally less painful than other major procedures.

The surgeon makes a few more incisions to allow entry of thin surgical instruments to insert a graft and repair damaged part. The procedure usually is performed in the outpatient setting and normally takes about two hours.
Ever increasing number of motor vehicles and the speed and recklessness of the modern man are the main causes of accidents that occur frequently. But accidents that cause severe injuries are a calamity that man may face sometime in his life.
Giving the best available medical attention on the accident spot without any delay is the only thing that we can do for the unlucky victims of the accidents. Managing a wound or a bone fracture is not a very difficult task. All surgeons will be able to achieve this based on their knowledge and experience gained through practice for several years. But when the fracture is complicated and the trauma is severe, the involvement of a trauma care specialist is warranted.
The following types of fracture and trauma will be highly benefited by the treatment and care of a trauma care specialist:
Minimally Invasive Percutaneous Plate Osteosynthesis (MIPPO) procedure was done for extra articular fractures of the distal and proximal femur; the key for this technique is represented by the usage of a two-part implant, the Dynamic Condylar Screw.
The technique consisted of 4 major steps:
The treatment purpose in minimally invasive percutaneous plate osteosynthesis consists in anatomic reconstruction of the articular area, axis, rotation and length reestablishment for the metaphyseal-diaphyseal area, long plates osteosynthesis with screws fixed only distally and proximally from the fracture, bridging the comminution and with early functional rehabilitation.
