Common orthopedic surgeries and the best orthopedic doctors to perform them

Orthopaedic surgery is any surgery performed on the musculoskeletal system which consists of bones, joints, and soft tissues that protect and allow easy body movement. Depending on the injury or damage, orthopedic surgery is performed on different body parts like the hips, knees, spine, etc. These surgeries not only relieve pain and discomfort caused by the damage but also ease muscle function which allows you to carry out everyday activities smoothly. Zoi Hospitals houses the best orthopedic surgeons and doctors in Hyderabad who carry out orthopedic surgeries with minimally invasive techniques. Orthopedic surgeries are one of the most common surgeries performed and have a high success rate.

Here we have listed down the most common orthopedic surgeries along with references of the best orthopedic surgeons.

Total Joint Replacement

Most of the patients who are diagnosed with severe arthritis undergo a total joint replacement surgery to seek pain relief and increased range of motion. During this procedure, surgeons evaluate the damaged parts of the joint and replace it with metal surfaces that are naturally shaped to restore movement and normal function.
At Zoi Hospitals, a joint replacement surgery will take about 1-3 hours after which the patient will be completely back on his/her feet after months. Dr. Ramesh Chandra Katragadda is an experienced orthopedic surgeon at Zoi Hospitals, Hyderabad who specializes in joint replacement surgeries.

Total Shoulder Replacement

This procedure greatly helps patients to feel better by diminishing the pain they may be feeling in a joint like the shoulder. This procedure involves replacing damaged parts of the bone and cartilage with a metal implant which improves the range of motion in the shoulder joint.
At Zoi Hospitals, shoulder replacement is a 1-2 hours procedure after which the patient will recover within 6-12 weeks. Dr. Shyam Sunder Reddy is an expert orthopedic surgeon who specializes in shoulder replacement surgeries.

Spine Surgery

There are a variety of problems because of which your doctor might recommend you to undergo spine surgery. One of the main reasons is that there is persisting back pain that impairs the patient's day-to-day life. Once a patient decides to have spine surgery, the results will eventually be no pain and discomfort in the spine, increased activity, better physical fitness and increased productivity.
The most common type of back surgery is the Spinal Fusion during which the surgeon joins spinal bones together. This eventually restricts motion between the bones of the spine and limits the stretching of the nerves. At Zoi Hospitals in Hyderabad, Dr. Satish Devabhaktuni is an expert orthopedic surgeon who specializes in spine surgeries.

ACL Reconstruction

ACL stands for the Anterior Cruciate Ligament, which is the major stabilizing ligament of the knee. Orthopedic surgeons reconstruct this torn ligament which can happen while participating in sports or twisting the knee the wrong way. At Zoi Hospitals, Dr. Bhupin Singh Bakshi is an expert orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine like ACL reconstruction.
During this procedure, the surgeon will remove the torn ligament, replacing it with the patient's own tissue or the tissue of an organ donor to make a new ACL. Then the surgeon will attach the new ligament to the bone with screws to hold it in place. As the knee heals, the bone tunnels created by the surgeon to bring new tissue through will start filling in, securing the new ligament in place. At Zoi hospitals, when this surgery is performed by best orthopedic doctors, the patient will fully recover within 4-5 months.

Orthopedic surgeries provide great relief to the pain-stricken patient who will be able to enjoy life without any discomfort after the procedure. Getting the right surgery done by an experienced doctor is essential to enjoy a smooth recovery. Zoi Hospitals in Hyderabad is one of the best orthopedic hospitals in India with top orthopedic doctors and surgeons who are experts in this field.
