The specialists of the department provide specialized trauma and orthopedic care. They perform osteosynthesis of fractures regardless of the location. Most of the surgeries are minimally invasive surgeries, i.e. a surgeon makes small incisions. Such surgeries have a number of advantages: shorter pre and post-operative inpatient stay, smaller loss of blood, better postoperative function results, shorter recovery period. The surgeon use advanced anchoring angular stable plates and intramedullary nails, which speed up recovery.
Our specialists perform joint replacement surgeries and arthroscopic knee and shoulder surgeries.
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment technique. It causes less injury and provides better results. Arthroscopy is used to diagnose and treat:
- impingement syndrome, i.e. a partial of total rupture of the rotator cuff;
- shoulder dislocation, chronic shoulder instability or glenoid labrum tear;
- SLAP syndrome, i.e. tear of the upper part of the glenoid labrum attached to the tendon of the long head of the biceps;
- arthritis and osteoarthritis of the acromioclavicular joint, rheumatic diseases;
- shoulder joint contracture, frozen shoulder;
- calcific tendenitis of the shoulder joint, etc.
We also treat acute fractions and complications of such fractions, replace and repair shoulder joints, including mini-open surgery.
A worn or injured cartilage of the hip joint cannot be repaired by therapy. The total hop joint replacement surgery may restore the functions of the hip joint similar to the functions of the natural joint. An artificial joint is selected and size-matched individually, so that it may restore the biomechanics of movements of a healthy joint.
Indications for the joint replacement surgery:
- hip dysplasia;
- rheumatoid polyarthritis;
- pseudarthrosis of the femoral neck;
- post-traumatic deformity of the socket of the hip caused;
- Legg–Calve–Perthes disease;
- some types of tuberculous coxitis;
- systemic lupus erythematosus;
- Bekhterev disease;
- tumors of the proximal fermur.
The advanced artificial joints of the world famous manufactures are used in joint replacement surgeries.
