Orthopaedic Services And Surgeries | Prime Orthopedic And Spine Hospital – Empower Yourself and Know When To Consult an Orthopedic Doctor for Injuries

Orthopaedics deals with the musculoskeletal system. Our musculoskeletal system includes our bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Generally, when you visit our hospital for bone or spine injuries, we can deal with it. However, in certain complex cases, we need the help of other specialist doctors.

As an orthopedic surgeon, working at Prime orthopedic hospital I wish to guide you about the kinds of diseases we deal with and the other specialists who help to deal with such issues in addition to us. However, it won’t be possible to explain all diseases in detail in this blog. So I’ll explain in detail about the bone problems and list the others.

Information About Orthopedic Problems

There can be many medical problems affecting bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

Bone problems include

Bone deformities

A bone deformity is an unusual, structural deviation or distortion of the bone’s shape from its normal alignment, length, and size.

A bone deformity can be there from birth or acquired due to any other reason.

Bones may become deformed due to many reasons such as

  • congenital defects (from birth)
  • developmental (from abnormal growth during childhood), and
  • post-traumatic (from healing in a deformed position after a fracture).

Bones may be deformed in four ways:

  • angulation (a bend in the bone)
  • rotation or torsion (a twist in the bone)
  • translation or displacement (a shift in the position of the bone after a fracture or osteotomy)
  • limb length discrepancy (a difference in the length of a bone compared with the other side)

How does the best orthopedic hospital deal with bone deformities?

Often bone deformities need surgical procedures. A bend in the bone can be corrected by lengthening it. However, wherever required, we do cutting of bones or internal or external fixation of broken bones to correct them.

Bone infections

They can occur due to a variety of reasons. Inflammation or swelling of bone caused by infection. It is generally seen in the legs, arms or spine. Technically they are referred to as osteomyelitis. It can happen due to bacterial bloodstream infection, traumatic injury, frequent medication injections, a surgical procedure, or a prosthetic device.

In case we observe problems with your bones or spine then as the best spine hospital, we undertake the following procedures.

How are bone infections diagnosed?

We use the following tests to judge whether you have bone infections.

  • Blood tests
  • Imaging tests like X-rays. CT Scans, MRI
  • Bone biopsy

How do we treat bone infections?

As one of the best orthopedic hospitals, we find very rare cases of bone infections. But in case we come across such cases, we need to do the following procedures.

  • Through antibiotics/medicines
  • Through surgical procedures

We perform the following surgical procedures at Prime orthopedic hospital to heal bone infections:

  • Drain the infected area
  • Remove diseased bone and tissue.
  • Restore blood flow to the bone.
  • Remove any foreign objects
  • Amputate the limb

Bone tumours

Bone tumors develop when cells within a bone divide uncontrollably and form a lump or mass of abnormal tissue. Generally, they are not cancerous. Depending on the type of tumours, they can be dealt with. At our bone and joint hospital, we recommend non-surgical treatments like chemotherapy and radiation. However, in certain cases, we need to perform surgery to remove the tumour.


A fracture is the most common reason why people visit our bone and joint hospital every single day. Bone fractures can happen to anyone, irrespective of their age. Many times fractures happen due to accidents. Sometimes diseases like Osteoporosis can develop and make your bones brittle. This causes them to break at the slightest instance.

Symptoms of bone fractures include

  • Pain.
  • Swelling.
  • Tenderness.
  • Inability to move a part of your body like you usually can.
  • Bruising or discolouration.
  • A deformity or bump that’s not usually on your body.

Although bone fractures cannot be totally avoided, there are some preventive measures that can help you to prevent them.

How can I reduce my risk for bone fractures?

Follow these general safety tips to reduce your risk of an injury:

  • Always wear your seatbelt while driving.
  • Wear the right protective equipment during sports.
  • Make sure your home and workspace are free from the clutter that could trip you or others. Because most elders have fractures due to this factor.
  • Always use the proper tools or equipment at home to reach things. Never stand on chairs, tables or countertops. Don’t use shortcuts to reach out to things. Slight laziness can be dangerous.
  • Follow a diet and exercise plan that will help you maintain good bone health. Especially, include Vitamin D and Calcium in your diet.
  • Talk to us or any best orthopedic hospital about a bone density test if you’re older than 50 or if you have a family history of osteoporosis.
  • Use assistive devices like a cane or walker if you have difficulty walking or have an increased risk for falls.
