Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Tears

ACL tears might need surgery by Best orthopaedic surgeons in Vijayawada to reconstruct the torn ligament. This is commonly performed by using tissue from somewhere else on the knee to replace the torn ACL.

Shoulder Dislocations:

In a shoulder dislocation, the ball of the shoulder joint, the round top of the arm bone—falls out of the groove that lies in the shoulder blade (also called the socket).

There are also shoulder subluxations, when the ball falls out of the socket only partially. Visit best orthopaedic hospitals in Vijayawada for Sports injuries that are fairly common causes of shoulder dislocations or subluxations.

The symptoms of a shoulder dislocation or subluxation include:

  1. Pain
  2. Bruising
  3. swelling
  4. Unsteadiness in the shoulder
  5. Numbness or tingling in the arm, hands, or fingers

Treatment includes putting the shoulder back in place, which usually causes a drop in pain almost immediately. Your child’s care provider may also put the shoulder in a sling, recommend rest, and prescribe icing down the shoulder several times a day.

When the shoulder begins to heal and there’s less pain and swelling, your child’s care provider also might prescribe rehabilitation exercises. These can help restore muscle strength and joint mobility.

Meniscal Tears

Smaller tears on the outside edge of the meniscus might not need surgery. But if your child’s symptoms like pain and knee instability persist, surgery could be the best option performed by orthopedic surgeons in Vijayawada.

Best arthroscopic surgeon in Vijayawada can perform arthroscopy for Meniscus repairs by using a tiny camera and surgical instruments inserted through a small incision in the knee.

Generally, surgeons perform one of the following procedures:

  1. During a partial meniscectomy, the damaged meniscus tissue is trimmed off.
  2. In a meniscus repair, surgeons stitch parts of the meniscus together. Recovery time for this procedure is longer than it is for a meniscectomy.

Patellar Instability/Kneecap Dislocation

Surgery to correct a dislocated kneecap is usually important only when the patella continues to dislocate repeatedly or remains unstable even after non-surgical treatment—like physical therapy or bracing.

There are different kinds of corrective surgery for patellar instability, depending on the cause of the condition. Frequently, Best sports injury doctors in Vijayawada will reconstruct the ligaments responsible for holding the patella in place.
