Non-surgical treatments available in Toorak
In some cases, surgery is not always recommended as the initial treatment. If surgery can be avoided and evidence-based non-surgical methods can be the first option, Dr Chandrasekaran, based in Toorak, will advise this route. He is able to offer the following services:
Exercise conditioning program
Exercise may help strengthen muscles around the hip and knee and may help reduce the pain. It can also help with arthritis in these areas, as well as improve recovery post-surgery.
Injections can be used to help treat the pain. They are injected into the affected areas and can help to provide additional lubrication, reduce inflammation and promote a healing response from the damaged tissues.
COOLIEF* radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive treatment option that targets the nerves that transmit pain signals from the hips and knees.
Injections into the hip and knee areas may help reduce pain and inflammation and prevent the need for surgery.
Surgical treatment available in Toorak
Sometimes the best solution for hip and knee pain is surgery, and Dr Chandrasekaran, based in Toorak, will take time to discuss your surgery options and help you make the best decision for your unique situation. The surgery options we offer are:
Arthroscopic surgery is a type of keyhole surgery, as so named due to the small incisions made on the required area instead of one large incision. It is a minimally invasive surgery used to diagnose and treat hip and knee conditions. It is less invasive, and healing and recovery is faster than with traditional techniques.
Hip and knee replacement surgery aim to eliminate pain and restore functionality to the hips and knees that have been adversely affected by trauma, general wear and tear, or disease such as arthritis.
Robotic joint replacement
Robotic joint replacement surgery uses software and robotic technology to plan, execute and check the positioning of components during joint replacement surgery.
A hip replacement surgery may be recommended if non-surgical treatments have not provided sufficient pain relief.
