The team of skilled and conscientious surgeons of our orthopedic department has expertise in performing various joint preservation procedures aimed at maintaining the function and integrity of the joint. Our goal by joint preservation procedures is to prevent the progression of joint damage and delay or avoid the need for joint replacement surgery. Some of the procedures our team specializes in are:
Arthroscopy: This minimally invasive procedure to visualize and repair damaged joint tissues.
Cartilage repair: Techniques such as microfracture, mosaicplasty, and autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI).
Ligament reconstruction: Repairing or reconstructing ligaments using tissues from the patient's body or donor tissues.
Osteotomy: cutting and reshaping the bone to redistribute weight and relieve pressure on the joint.
Joint replacement: In severe cases of joint damage the damaged joint is removed and replaced with a prosthetic joint.
Joint preservation injections: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and hyaluronic acid injections are used to reduce inflammation and improve joint function.
Physical therapy: Physical therapy is conducted as a joint preservation technique to improve joint mobility, strength, and function.
