Orthopedic Surgery

Scope of orthopedic procedures

TOTAL JOINT REPLACEMENT: HIP OR KNEE

Total hip replacement is one of the most common procedures we perform. We use a unique surgical procedure – a minimally invasive approach – which minimizes tissue damage to muscles and ligaments, lowers blood loss, reduces risks of infection and generally results in shorter recovery time and earlier mobility.

FOOT AND ANKLE SURGERY

  • Corrective reconstructions of foot joint deformities such as hallux valgus or hammer toe etc.
  • Ankle fusion (arthrodesis) joining the ankle bones into one piece to treat ankle pain caused by severe arthritis

ARTHROSCOPY: MINIMALLY INVASIVE PROCEDURES

  • Meniscectomy – surgical removal of all or part of a torn meniscus
  • Reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament
  • Shoulder arthroscopy procedures

IMMEDIATE POST-OPERATIVE REHABILITATION

We can also arrange procedures not included in this list. Our specialist will consult your specific case and help you choose the most suitable procedure for your particular condition.
