Best hospital for joint replacement surgery

Joint replacement surgery is a procedure to relieve chronic joint pain and improve joint mobility when other non-surgical treatments have proved unsuccessful. Several conditions can cause joint pain and disability but the most common is damage to the cartilage that lines the ends of the bones from arthritis, fracture, or another condition. If you are faced with constant joint pain and a restricted range of motion, then consult SLG’s experts in joint replacement surgery. It could be the best move you’ve made as it can help improve the overall quality of life, get you back to the activities you enjoy, and ensure relief from pain.

Types of joint replacement surgery

As the best centre for joint replacement surgery in Hyderabad, SLG’s expertise covers the following types of joint surgeries: 

Hip Replacement Surgery

Anterior Hip Replacement is a new way to implant a hip replacement using minimally invasive techniques, allowing for muscle sparing instead of muscle splitting. It enables faster recovery and lesser restrictions on activity post-surgery.

Partial Hip Replacement also known as hemiarthroplasty, involves replacing only the femoral head and not the socket. This procedure is used more in older hip fracture patients.

Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Reverse Shoulder Replacement involves switching the location of the ball and socket in the joint and replacing them with artificial parts. The reversal enables the shoulder to bypass the damaged muscles and tendons and instead use the muscles at the top of the arm and shoulder. This helps stabilize the joint and restores pain-free motion and function.

Knee Replacement Surgery

Partial Knee Replacement is recommended if either one or two compartments of the knee joint, out of a total of three, are damaged. The procedure involves removing damaged tissue, resurfacing existing areas, and implanting artificial parts into the affected compartment(s) of the knee.

Joint Preservation

Joint preservation uses non-surgical or surgical procedures to preserve a deteriorating joint to delay or avoid joint replacement surgery. It involves the use of different treatment methods including activity modifications, medications, physiotherapy, injections, and sometimes surgery (High Tibial Osteotomy), to restore normal and pain-free function to the joint. The treatment strategy is personalized for each patient, considering age, activity level, expectations, and extent of joint dysfunction.

SLG’s specialists are experts in joint preservation, whether it’s the shoulder, hip, knee or ankle.

Patient Testimonials

Recently I had a knee injury, for treatment I went to SLG Hospitals. I was hardly walking receptionists and staff members immediately responded and accompanied me to ortho Dr. B.Chakradhar Reddy. He treated me really well and explained me the problem in a very simple neat way. Radiology technicians were also very helpful and supportive. I’m well satisfied with hospitality and over all service.
