I have bow legs. With surgery will it b corrected completely? n what are the complications if I opt to go for surgery.
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. We will actually have to evaluate you as in the cause of your bow legs, also we need to know the difference in the lengths of the two limbs, for which I will need your full length x rays and a ct scannogram for evaluation. Also if you are in the delhi ncr region, it will be advisable if you can come for a physical examination so that I can see and advise you accordingly. Complications depend upon what surgery has been decided in your case so it is difficult for me to generalize potential complications associated with it. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

I am suffering from back pain at 4-5 days heavy back pain, headache,heart pain. Plz.
It can be due to variety of reason like hypertension, peptic ulcer, anxiety, heart pathology, migraine, muscle pain, costocondral inflammation. Etc. Get yourself investigated for chest x ray, blood culture, cardiac enzymes etc. To reduce symptoms: 1)Get plenty of rest. If you have an infection or a muscle injury, rest can help you recover and recuperate. 2) Take an over-the-counter pain reliever. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen can help reduce symptoms of headache and chest pain. 3) Apply a warm compress to your head, neck, and shoulders. Taking a shower can also have soothing effects on a headache. 4) Minimize stress in your life as much as possible. Stress can contribute to headaches and body pain. From meditation to exercise to reading, there are many activities that can help you reduce stress in your life.

Madam, You most probably have osteoarthritis. The diagnosis needs to confirmed. If in fact you have osteoarthritis then you need to be assessed for comorbidities and needs to be put on an intensive exercise program with control of pain using safe pain modfiying medications instead of pain killers. This can be done best by a rheumatologist. If you let me know where you live I can give you a refernce of a nearby rheumatologist. You can contact me via my website www.Rheumatologybangalore.Com You can get more information regarding osteoarthritis from the document below.

First rule out the cause of pain. It may be some injury to vertebral disc or compression fracture of any vertebrate or ligament tears. According to this your treatment would change. Do an mri of the spine to move forward. Consult a physician. Thank you.

Sir I just wanna know what is knee transplantation. And is it safe? What is its pros and cons.

MD PHYSICIAN
General Physician, Delhi
Sir I just wanna know what is knee transplantation. And is it safe? What is its pros and cons.
Knee transplantation or replacement is of two types: partial and total knee replacement. Partial knee replacement: The surgeon replaces the damaged portions of the knee with plastic and metal parts. Total knee replacement: In this procedure, the knee is replaced with an artificial joint. It requires a major surgery and hospitalization. You'll usually be in hospital for three to five days, but recovery times can vary depending on the individual and type of surgery being carried out. It is usually one of the commonest procedures performed but risk factor include stiffness of the knee, infection of the wound, deep infection of the joint replacement, needing further surgery, unexpected bleeding into the knee joint ligament, artery or nerve damage in the area around the knee joint, blood clots and many more.

You should do calf stretching exercises whenever you stand for long time. Try to avoid long standing as it predisposes for varicose veins.

Taking Care of Your Joints as You Age

Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS), MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Gurgaon
Taking Care of Your Joints as You Age

Skin is one of the most obvious parts of our body, which ages with an increase in the number of candles on our birthday cake. As you age, joints tend to become stiffer and less flexible. The body does not recover from bumps and bruises as easily as it did before, and it becomes difficult to stand for extended time intervals. This is caused mostly by a breakdown of cartilage and inflammation of the synovium.

What is cartilage?
Cartilage is a flexible connective tissue. It connects the ends of two bones in a joint. It is softer than bone tissue but less flexible than muscle tissue. Cartilage is responsible for the smooth movement of joints. 
With age, cartilage begins to degenerate. As the cartilage gets thinner, movement becomes more and more difficult. If left untreated, the cartilage may completely wear off leaving no buffer between the bones. This is one of the leading causes of knee replacement surgery. 

What is synovium?
Synovium is a membrane responsible for keeping the cartilage healthy. It produces a thick fluid that keeps the cartilage and joint lubricated. In cases of osteoarthritis, this membrane can swell up and produce excess fluid. This in turn causes the joint to swell as well. 

Along with age, factors like being overweight, genetics, gender and lifestyle also play a role in the condition of your joints. Being obese point towards a sedentary lifestyle and puts extra pressure on joints, leading to the thinning of cartilage. While men have higher chances of becoming osteoarthritis patients before 45, women have higher chances of developing this disease after 50. A healthy lifestyle is the easiest way to ensure that your joints work well even when you're old and grey. 

Exercise
Movement of the joints keeps the fluid in them moving. It also prevents the cartilage from shrinking and stiffening up. Exercise also makes the bones stronger, and slows the rate of bone tissue deterioration. Stretching exercises are also a good way to maintain the flexibility of joints. 

Healthy diet
Foods that are known as natural antihistamines, antioxidants and foods that fight inflammation promote healthy joints. Some of these are:

  1. Green tea: It prevents the breakdown of collagen and cartilage
  2. Nuts and seeds: These are rich in omega 3 fats that are essential for good bone health
  3. Ginger: It relieves pain and joint swelling
  4. Yogurt: It helps soothe tender joints and fights inflammation
  5. Pomegranate: It protects the cartilage against damage

Hot and cold therapy can also help relieve joint pain and reduce inflammation. As you get older, avoid putting too much pressure on your joints and give them adequate rest. Lastly, avoid smoking, as people who smoke have an increased risk of cartilage loss.

Bachelor of Physical Therapy

Sir, I would suggest you to start physiotherapy under therapist's observation for 10-15 days. After that you can do exercises at home. Because if exercise are done in a wring way it can aggravate your pain and may lead to dislocation again. I hope I helped you. THANK YOU!

Hello,Homeopathic medicines are very helpful. They not only treat the acute stages but are also for the treatment of back pain but selection of the exact remedy depends upon the individual symptoms of the person.So choose the doctor of your choice, share the complete symptom picture and get the proper treament. In the mean time take Arnica 200, 3 drops in the morning and Rhus tox. 200, 3 drops at night for 7 days.Take care.
