To keep up with an active lifestyle, regular engagement in sports is a mandate these days.
Our expert panels of orthopedic surgeons are here to examine your injury, which are sport related, or trauma related. Below are few conditions that can be treated here along with other indications:
- Tennis elbow: This is an inflammation of the tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow. Repeating the same motions again and again leads to pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow
- Golfer’s elbow: Tendons of your forearm muscles become attached to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow causing pain that might spread into your forearm and wrist
- Achilles tendinitis: Achilles tendon, the band of tissue that connects calf muscles at the back of the lower leg to your heel bone may become inflamed. It mostly occurs in runners or marathoners who might have increased intensity or duration of their runs
Foot bunion: Foot bunion can form on the joint at the base of big toe. It occurs when some of the bones in the front part of your foot move out of place, which causes the tip of your big toe to get pulled toward the smaller toes and forces
- the joint at the base of your big toe to stick out. The skin over the bunion might be red and sore and needs medical attention.
- Feet hammer correction: A hammer toe is a deformity that causes the toe to bend or curl downward instead of pointing forward and mostly affects the second or third toe. It usually develops over time due to arthritis or wearing ill-fitting shoes, such as tight, pointed heels, but is a treatable condition.
- Flat foot correction: If there is a discomforting pain due to flat feet as a result of strained muscles and connecting ligaments, please consult our orthopedic surgeon. There might be possible swelling and pain along arch of foot, knee, hip and lower back. Calcaneo stop procedure is a simple, reliable and minimally invasive procedure for this and allows alignment of the talus and calcaneus, restoring a proper foot arch.
- Carpal tunnel syndrome: This is a condition caused when one of the major nerves (median nerve) to the hand is squeezed or compressed, there by causing pain and can be treated with minimally invasive procedures.
- Dupuytren’s syndrome: This is a condition in which one or more fingers become permanently bent in a flexed position. While it usually begins as small hard nodules just under the skin of the palm, it may worsen over time until the fingers can no longer be straightened.
A detailed examination will reveal the extent and severity of the condition and the next course of action will be decided.
The surgeries, as required will be carried under local anesthesia and usually takes 1-3 hours depending upon complications, age and severity. They are mostly followed by exercises, pain management techniques and assistance as required.
