doc-imgBones are rigid organs that form part of the endoskeleton of vertebrates. They function to move, support, and protect the various organs of the body, produce red and white blood cells and store minerals. Because bones come in a variety of shapes and have a complex internal and external structure, they are lightweight, yet strong and hard, in addition to fulfilling their many other functions. There are 206 bones in the adult human body and 270 in an infant.

Arthritis

ortho5Arthritis is a term that includes a group of disorders that affect you joints and muscles. The symptoms include joint pain, inflammation and limited movement of joints. Most people over the age of 50 show signs of arthritis. Blood tests and X-rays can confirm arthritis. The condition can be managed through a combination of medication, exercise, rest, weight-management, nutrition and, in some cases, surgery.

Total Knee Replacement Surgery

ortho3The surgery replaces your diseased knee joint and eliminates the damaged bearing surfaces that are causing you pain. The design of the implant offers renewed stability and minimises the wear process.

The benefits:

  • Elimination of pain
  • Improved motion
  • Minimum wear and tear

Total Hip Replacement or Hip Arthroplasty

ortho4The surgery re-forms the hip joint, replacing the arthritic hip joint, thus eliminating the pain-causing damaged bearing surfaces. In the 1960s, the metal ball and plastic socket for replacement of the hip joint was introduced. The artificial components used today are stronger, made of chrome, cobalt, titanium or ceramic materials, and come in various shapes and designs.

Sports Medicine

This is an area of health and special services that apply medical and scientific knowledge to prevent, recognise, manage, and rehabilitate injuries related to sport, exercise, or recreational activity. Common sports injuries include Concussion, Muscle Cramps, ACL sprains, Ankle Sprain and Shin Splints.

Navigation

navigation-machine

The image-guided navigation system is similar to the location and directional tracking systems used for cars and ships today. This technology superimposes the position of the instruments as they are used in surgery onto images of the anatomy displayed on a monitor. The surgeon depends on these images to confirm the position of their instruments in relation to the patient’s anatomy, for guidance during surgery.
