Hip replacement surgery is a common type of surgery and is usually performed when the knee joint is worn or damaged to the extent that your mobility is reduced and you experience pain even while resting. This happens usually either due to age or due to excess weight or pressure on the joints. A modern artificial hip joint is designed to last for 10-15 years. Most of the people find some relief after the surgery and also there is decrease in the pain. There is an improvement in the movement after the surgery. The most common reason for hip replacement surgery is osteoarthritis. Other conditions that can cause hip joint damage are a hip fracture, rheumatoid arthritis, disorders that cause unusual bone growth etc.
A hip replacement can be carried out under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes an incision in the hip, removes the damages hip and replaces it with an artificial one. The artificial hip is made of ceramic, metal alloy.
Knee replacement surgery is performed when a person complain of severe knee pain that makes it difficult for the person to complete his simple daily activities. Also when there is no effect of any other treatment. This surgery s performed for people above 50 years who are suffering from severe osteoarthritis.
The knee replacement surgery is performed under general anesthesia. An incision or a cut is made in front of the knee. The damaged part of the joint is removed from the surface of the bones and the surface is then shaped to hold the metal or plastic artificial joint. The artificial joint is attached to the thigh bone, shin and knee cap either with cement or a special material. When it is fit together, the attached artificial part of the joint relies on the muscles and ligaments from the surrounding area for support and function.
Joint aspiration is also known as arthrocentesis. It is useful for the diagnosis of certain joint problems. Joint aspiration method is the best and the most accurate method to identify whether the joint pain and swelling is caused due to an infection or whether it is caused by crystal-related arthritis problem i.e., gout.
For this procedure, the doctor first injects the area to be studied with anesthesia and numbs the particular area. Then the doctor inserts a larger needle into the joint space, draws out joint fluid (synovial fluid), and examines the fluid under a microscope. The doctor analyzes the fluid based on the color and clarity and performs other tests such as white blood cell count. This procedure is quick, easy, and relatively painless.
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive orthopedic procedure carried out to understand the inner workings of a specific joint by a visual examination. The procedure is performed by an arthroscope that not only provides a visual detailing but is also capable of carrying repair and correction of the joint.
The procedure begins with a small skin incision and this is performed by giving local, spinal, or general anesthesia. During arthroscopy, doctors take a piece of tissue for biopsy, analyze the tissue and make necessary correction by performing the surgery. Disorders commonly found during arthroscopy include inflammation of the synovium lining the joint, ligament, tendon, or cartilage damage. Such conditions affect the person suffering with arthritis or a person with a history of joint injuries. All these conditions can be repaired or removed during arthroscopy. There is a very small risk of joint infection with this procedure. Most of the people do not need to stay overnight in the hospital as the time taken to recover from the surgery is quick.
