Non-surgical treatments available in Werribee
In many cases, surgery is often not required as there are a variety of evidence-based non-surgical methods that an Orthopaedic Surgeon can use to effectively treat joint pain. We provide the following non-surgical treatments.
Exercise conditioning program
Following a well-structured conditioning program will help restore function, improve mobility and enable you to return to your daily activities and eventually sports and other recreational activities, much faster.
Injections are used by an Orthopaedic Surgeon to relieve pain, reduce swelling, improve function and facilitate exercise treatment. They can often be used as an effective treatment to postpone or even prevent the need for surgery. These injections include corticosteroid, platelet-rich plasma and hyaluronic acid.
Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment used to assist in the management of joint pain. Studies have shown that the technology can provide relief for 12 months or longer for patients suffering from chronic pain.
Following a dedicated exercise program can help restore function, improve mobility and get you back to your daily routine much faster.
Surgical treatments available in Werribee
Sometimes surgery is the only option but the good news is that advancements in surgical techniques, pain management and rehabilitation often lead to shorter hospital stays and a faster return to daily activities. We provide the following surgical treatments:
Arthroscopy is a type of keyhole surgery that an Orthopaedic Surgeon uses to diagnose and repair your joints. It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure where small incisions are used to place a small camera and instruments inside the joint, to identify the issue and perform corrective procedures. The technique can be used to treat anterior cruciate ligament tears of the knee and labral tears and impingement of the hip.
Hip and knee replacements are typically suggested by an Orthopaedic Surgeon after a patient suffers from significant trauma, a medical condition or on occasion, extensive general wear and tear. They are very effective at relieving pain, restoring movement, enabling you to resume your regular everyday activities and significantly improving your overall quality of life.
Robotic joint replacement
During robotic joint replacements, your Orthopaedic Surgeon uses software and robotic technology to plan, execute and check the positioning of components during joint replacement surgery.
Knee replacement surgery may be required if more conservative methods aren’t providing enough pain relief.
