Arthroscopic ACL reconstruction

  • This procedure is done in patient with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear following falls, road traffic accidents in which knee is injured/ knee injury during sports activities.
  •  The procedure is usually done under spinal anesthesia.
  • Tunnel is drilled in distal femur (thigh bone) and proximal tibia (leg bone) at the place of normal ACL ligament
  • Tendon Graft is taken from hamstring muscle of the patient.
  •  ACL reconstructed by fixing graft to femoral tunnel by titanium button and to tibial tunnel by titanium button/screws.
  •  After surgery patient is made to walk without weight from next day, graduated physiotherapy program is started till 3 to 6 months.

Arthroscopic PCL reconstruction

  • This procedure is done in patients with posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries following road traffic accidents and falls/ sports injuries.
  •  The procedure is usually done under spinal anesthesia.
  •  Tunnel is drilled in distal femur (thigh bone) and proximal tibia (leg bone) at the place of normal PCL ligament.

Arthroscopic meniscal replacement

  • Meniscus allograft with bone plugs is obtained from bone bank after matching for patient height, weight and sex.
  •  Damaged meniscus is removed.
  •  Size matched Meniscus graft obtained from bone banks is fixed to the leg shin bone and to capsule with sutures.
  •  It is fixed to shin bone (tibia).
  • After surgery patient is made to walk without bearing weight on operated limb till 4 weeks. Graduated physiotherapy program is started after surgery till 2months.

Arthroscopic meniscal repair

  • This procedure is done in patients with tear of the meniscus (tissue which acts as a cushion between the thigh bone and leg shin bone).
  •  Meniscus injury is identified through arthroscopy.
  •  Edges of the tear are freshened and repaired with sutures by all inside/inside-out techniques.
  • After surgery patient is made to walk without bearing weight on the operated limb for 4 weeks. The graduated physiotherapy program is started after surgery for 2 months.

Arthroscopic stiff knee release

  • Procedure is usually done under spinal anesthesia
  • Adhesions inside the joint are visualized with the help of an arthroscope and released under direct vision.
  • In Addition release of the capsule, quadriceps plasty (lengthening of quadriceps muscle) may be done.
  •  After surgery knee physiotherapy is started for knee mobilization

Recovery Rate

Depending on the level of competition and the type of activity, it typically takes a patient six to nine months to return following a Knee surgery. On the day of surgery, patients are able to walk using crutches and a leg brace. Very quickly following surgery, the patient enrols in a rehabilitation programme to help the knee regain its strength, stability, and range of motion. A series of exercises are used in the rehabilitation process: Early on during the healing process, strengthening and range-of-motion activities are begun. Exercises for running start at around four months. Beginning pivoting exercises occurs about five months.

Causes

  • Meniscus damage. The cartilage known as the meniscus serves as a cushion between the knee’s bones. It can be fixed or removed surgically.
  • ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) or PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) tears or damage (PCL).
  • Joint lining that is swollen (inflamed) or damaged. The term “synovium” refers to this lining.
  • Incorrect positioning of the patella (kneecap) (misalignment).
    cartilage in the knee joint has split up into little pieces.
  •  A Baker cyst is removed. This is a liquid-filled swelling behind the knee.
  • When there is inflammation and pain (swelling) from other reasons, such as arthritis, the issue might occasionally arise.
  • cartilage repair after a fracture.
  • A few fractures of the knee bones.

Symptoms

  • Swelling
  • knee pain
  • Redness
  •  Heat
  • Difficulty bending your knee 
  • Bruising
  • Popping or clicking sounds
  • Problems weight bearing
  • Feeling of uneasiness
  • Your knee locking

Insurance coverage

Insurance does cover the cost of the surgical procedure for a hysterectomy performed due to adenomyosis because it is on the list of procedures that are "medically required." The cost capping, however, may change from instance to case. Please get your healthcare or insurance company to validate this.
