The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint. The round end of the arm bone fits into the opening at the end of the shoulder blade, called the socket. During total shoulder replacement, the round end of the arm bone is replaced with an artificial stem that has a rounded metal head. The socket part (glenoid) of the shoulder blade is replaced with a smooth plastic shell or lining that is held in place with special cement. If only one of these two bones needs to be replaced, the surgery is called a partial-shoulder replacement, or a hemiarthroplasty.
Patients with bone-on-bone osteoarthritis and intact rotator cuff tendons are generally good candidates for this type of surgery.
Another type of shoulder replacement is called reverse shoulder replacement surgery. It is generally used for people who have completely torn rotator cuffs with severe arm weakness; cuff tear arthropathy or severe arthritis with a torn rotator cuff; or had a previous shoulder replacement that failed. For these patients, a conventional shoulder replacement can still leave them with severe pain or unable to lift their arm up past a 90-degree angle. In the "reverse" procedure, the socket and metal ball are switched, meaning the metal ball is attached to the shoulder bone, and a plastic socket is attached to the upper arm bone. This allows the patient to use the deltoid muscle instead of the torn rotator cuff to lift the arm.

Knee Replacement Surgery
The treatment for a fracture depends on the type and severity of the fracture. In some cases, immobilization with a plaster cast or brace may be sufficient to allow the bone to heal. However, in other cases, surgery may be necessary to realign the bone and hold it in place with plates, screws, or other fixation devices.
Factors that may influence the decision to use surgery to treat a fracture include the location and severity of the fracture, the age and overall health of the patient, and the expected outcome of non-surgical versus surgical treatment.
In general, a simple fracture with no or minimal displacement or angulation may be treated with immobilization using a plaster cast or brace, while a more complex fracture with significant displacement or angulation may require surgical intervention to achieve proper alignment and stability for healing. At Chettinad Super Speciality Hospital, the best hospital for treating fractures, the orthopaedic surgeons will be able to recommend the best course of treatment based on your individual circumstances.
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows orthopaedic surgeons to view, diagnose, and treat problems within a joint. It involves the use of a small camera, called an arthroscope, which is inserted through a small incision in the skin and into the joint.
The arthroscope contains a light source and a small camera that transmits images of the inside of the joint to a monitor, allowing the surgeon to see the structures within the joint in great detail. The surgeon can then use other small instruments inserted through additional incisions to perform various procedures, such as removing damaged tissue, repairing tears or fractures, or removing loose bodies from the joint.
Arthroscopy is commonly used to diagnose and treat a variety of joint problems, including injuries to the knee, shoulder, hip, elbow, and ankle. The benefits of arthroscopy over traditional open surgery include smaller incisions, less pain and scarring, quicker recovery time, and less damage to surrounding tissues.
A joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which a damaged or arthritic joint is replaced with an artificial joint. Joint replacement is typically considered when other treatments, such as medication, physical therapy, and injections, have failed to provide relief from joint pain and disability.
Some common reasons why a bone joint may require replacement include:
At Chettinad Super Speciality Hospital, the best hospital for joint replacement, the orthopaedic surgeon will evaluate your individual situation to determine if a joint replacement is the best option for you. They will consider factors such as the severity of your joint damage, your age and overall health, and your goals and expectations for the procedure.
After joint replacement surgery, the flexibility of the joint will depend on several factors, including the type of joint replaced, the patient's overall health and activity level, and the success of the surgery and rehabilitation. In general, patients can expect to have a significant improvement in joint flexibility after joint replacement surgery, but the range of motion will not be the same as a natural joint. Most patients can expect to achieve about 90-95% of the range of motion they had before the joint was damaged. In the early stages of recovery, the joint may be stiff and uncomfortable, but as the patient continues with physical therapy and rehabilitation, the joint should gradually become more flexible. The amount of time it takes to regain flexibility will vary depending on the individual patient and the extent of the surgery, but most patients can expect to return to their normal activities within several months of the surgery. It's important to keep in mind that joint replacement surgery is a major procedure, and full recovery can take some time. Patients should follow their surgeon's post-operative instructions carefully, including completing physical therapy exercises, taking pain medications as prescribed, and avoiding certain activities as directed to ensure the best possible outcome.
A ligament tear, also known as a sprain, occurs when one or more of the ligaments in a joint are stretched or torn. Ligaments are tough, fibrous bands of tissue that connect bones to one another, providing stability and support to the joint. Ligament tears can occur due to a sudden twisting or turning movement, such as in sports or other physical activities, or due to a traumatic injury, such as a fall or car accident. Symptoms of a ligament tear can include pain, swelling, bruising, and difficulty moving the joint.
The severity of a ligament tear is classified into three grades:
Treatment for a ligament tear depends on the severity of the injury. Mild sprains may be treated with rest, ice, compression, and elevation, while more severe sprains may require immobilization with a brace or splint and physical therapy. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to repair or reconstruct a torn ligament.
An ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injury is a type of knee injury that affects the ACL tendon. The ACL is one of the major ligaments in the knee and is responsible for providing stability to the joint during movement. It runs diagonally through the center of the knee, connecting the thighbone (femur) to the shinbone (tibia). An ACL injury can occur due to a sudden change in direction or speed, or from a direct blow to the knee. The injury is often seen in athletes who participate in sports that involve jumping, cutting, and pivoting, such as basketball, soccer, and football. Symptoms of an ACL injury may include a popping sound or sensation at the time of injury, pain, swelling, instability, and difficulty bearing weight on the affected leg. An ACL injury is often diagnosed through a physical examination, imaging studies such as an MRI, or arthroscopy. Treatment for an ACL injury may include rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE), as well as physical therapy to help restore strength and flexibility to the knee. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to reconstruct the torn ACL tendon using tissue from another part of the body or from a donor. Surgery is typically recommended for individuals who are active and desire to return to sports or other physical activities that place a high demand on the knee.
If an ACL injury is left untreated, it can lead to several consequences, including:
It's important to seek medical attention if you suspect you have an ACL injury, as prompt treatment can help prevent these potential consequences and improve the outcome of the injury.
Spine surgeons are specialized surgeons who are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the spine. Some of the spine treatments undertaken by spine surgeons include:
The treatment recommended by a spine surgeon will depend on the specific condition and individual needs of each patient.
Yes, there are several treatment options available for kyphosis and scoliosis, which are conditions that affect the curvature of the spine.
Kyphosis is a condition where the spine curves outward in a hunchbacked position. Treatment for kyphosis may include:
Scoliosis is a condition where the spine curves sideways in an "S" or "C" shape. Treatment for scoliosis may include:
The treatment recommended for kyphosis and scoliosis will depend on the severity of the condition and individual needs of each patient.
A meniscal tear is a common knee injury that occurs when the meniscus, which is a piece of cartilage that cushions and stabilizes the knee joint, is torn. This injury is often caused by twisting or over-flexing the knee joint, and is common among athletes, particularly those who play sports that involve sudden stops and starts, jumping or pivoting.
The recovery time for a meniscal tear will depend on the severity of the injury and the type of treatment that was performed. In general, rest and rehabilitation may take a few weeks to a few months, while recovery from arthroscopic surgery may take several weeks or months, depending on the extent of the injury and the patient's overall health.
