Non-surgical treatments available in Malvern
In many instances, you won’t require surgery, as there are a variety of evidence-based, non-surgical methods to treat lower limb pain and sports-related injuries. We provide the following types of non-surgical treatments.
Exercise conditioning program
After suffering a hip injury or after you’ve had sports knee surgery, following a carefully constructed exercise program will enable you to return to your regular routine much faster. Following the dedicated program and living an active, healthy lifestyle will also help you return to sports and other recreational activities sooner.
If you’ve suffered a hip or knee injury, an Orthopaedic Surgeon can use injections to relieve pain, reduce swelling and improve function. Injected either directly into or very close to the joint, they are designed to alleviate pain, restore your range of motion and facilitate exercise treatment. These injections include corticosteroid, platelet-rich plasma and hyaluronic acid.
Radiofrequency ablation deactivates the nerves responsible for sending pain signals to the brain. It is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment used by an Orthopaedic Surgeon to assist in managing chronic joint pain.
Injections and nerve ablation can significantly help treat chronic pain.
Surgical treatments available in Malvern
Unfortunately, surgery is sometimes the only option after suffering an injury or to relieve chronic pain. The type of surgery you require will be determined by Dr Chandrasekaran. Below are the different surgical options we provide.
Knee and hip arthroscopy is key-hole surgery of the joint that an Orthopaedic Surgeon uses to diagnose and treat a number of conditions. It’s a highly specialised technique that’s much less invasive and requires significantly less recovery time than traditional open surgery. The technique can be used to treat anterior cruciate ligament tears of the knee and labral tears and impingement of the hip.
Trauma, general wear and tear, and medical conditions such as osteoarthritis can cause the need for hip and knee replacement surgery. A hip or total knee replacement can significantly improve your quality of life by relieving pain, restoring movement and enabling you to resume your regular everyday activities.
Robotic joint replacement surgery
During this type of surgery, an Orthopaedic Surgeon uses highly advanced software and robotic technology to plan, execute and check the positioning of components during an operation.
An Orthopaedic Surgeon will typically perform either a posterior or anterior hip replacement.
