If the arthritis is worse then knee replacement will be the last option. See an ortho surgeon in your town and he will be able to discuss the pros and cons of surgery.

Hello doctor, I'm 20 years old male. I had visited an orthopedic surgeon a few days reconstruction surgery, since the ligament has completely torn. He also said the cost for the surgery. He said RUPEES 40 THOUSAND excluding the hospital charges. Including the hospital charges, he said RUPEES 60 THOUSAND. I forgot to ask him the type of graft which would be used. My question is, At this price range, what kind of graft is available? Please help me. Thank you.

Most surgeons would harvest the hamstring tendons for using as grafts for ligament reconstruction in the knee. That usually would not determine the cost. Its the usage of the fixation devices that would determine the cost. Usually nonabsorbable interference screws are cheaper.

Make sure you undergo a proper course of vastus medialis obliqus exercise. As long as you do not have regular dislocation of the patella then you do not need surgery. Surgery is only for people where the trochlea (the place where the knee cap is situated) is not well developed or if there is soft tissue problems.

I tore my ACL partially a few years back. It did not need a surgery and never hurt much. I have done proper rehab and have strengthened the muscles surrounding it. Recently I had stopped working out for 3-4 months and went back to playing football 2 weeks back and twisted my knee. It hurts a bit. I wanted to know what are the exercises I can do to strengthen my ACL.

Hamstring strengthening exercises will be helpful. Partially torn acl is at an increased risk of getting damaged with contact sports.

My relative has knee surgery before 8 months due to fracture in knee. Now bone is not joint. Due to screw he can walk easily. He can't bend more than 90 degree. Could you suggest some solution or above medicine will work for him also.

If the bone has not united then the screw might fail soon. Any joint injury usually results in some stiffness in that joint. The primary aim should be to get the bone heal first and then concentrate on movements. If you force the knee the move before the bone unites then the metal work will fail.

Pain at this age is usually due to patellofemoral cartilage softening. Make sure your knee xrays are normal. Try a course of quadriceps strengthening exercises. Weight reduction, avoiding sitting on the floor and squatting also helps.

I'm 25 years old. I've mild disk bulge in L4 and L5. Whether I can lead normal life or not? And it's curable completely or not? Pls tell me.

Mild disc bulge is nothing serious. As long as you do not have any back pain radiating to your legs then the nerve roots are not getting compressed. Make sure you do not lift heavy objects or strain urself, avoid long distance 2 and 4 wheeler rides, back exercises help.

Hi, I am 22 years old and met with accident on 17 May, due to which I broke both the bones of my right leg and got operated. Now m having 2 plates in my leg and lot of staples. I am worried about removing the staples. Also what to eat so that I will not get any infection in that.

Skin staples are removed easily in the outpatients department. Its not as painful as the fracture you had in the first place anyway. As far as diet is concerned eat a balanced healthy diet rich in calcium. Diet does not cause any infection. Smoking and alcohol should be avoided at all costs.

Bone pain, fragility fractures (bones can break easily with very minimal injury) are the features. There are medications to decrease the bone resorption and you can get it prescribed by an ortho surgeon along with calcium and vitamin d supplements.

sounds like a sprain of your Achilles tendon (it might be even a partial tear). ice pack and rest and a heel cushion helps. if the pain doesnt subside then you should see a local ortho surgeon

you need to do hand grip strength exercises with the help of a soft squeeze ball. for the leg you have to do knee and ankle range of motion exercises and quadriceps strengthening

bandage is not of any use for fractures. It depends on which bone is fractured - if its toe fractures then you dont need any thing other than ice and elevation - but if its any other fracture then you need a proper plaster cast

Unless you have severe osteoarthritis then replacement at this age is not advisable for the following reasons - 1. The prosthesis does have a time limit and eventually it wears out (the longevity depends on the bearing surface used) and once it wears out then you will have pain and it would need revision surgery. The chances of a hip replacement done at an young age of 35 lasting for more than 7 - 10 years is very slim. Repeated revisions reduce the bone stock and also increases the complication rate. Do you have any xrays so that we can see for what problem you have been advised replacement. Unless we see the xrays we would not be able to comment appropriately.

Is osteoarthritis a part of aging, and is there a way to reduce risks, even after age 50? Do sleep needs change as we age? How much sleep do we need after age 50?

Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS), Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS)

osteoarthritis is a part of ageing process. However it may have its onset even before 50 if certain risk factors like obesity, previous joint injury / joint infections / gout or other rheumatological conditions are present. only certain risk factors like obesity are modifiable . 6-7 hours sleep is what we need on an average

After typhoid some people can develop arthralgia (joint pain) - which is due to inflammation of the joint lining due to immune reactions. you can visit an ortho or rheumatologist and get it checked.

57+ F was under treatment for Osteo Arthritis & early bony Osteoporosis along with vit D3 14 [30-100]. She was on a monthly dosage of'DV 60K' for past 2-years, which improved her vit D3 to 55. But now her vitD3 medicine is stopped & she is advised to continue'Shelcal CT' &'Zedfit powder as before. This has been done couple of months back, but looks like her knee joints are not so flexible as they were during vitD3 medications. Is this normal behavior? Is there any remedy?

Vit D3 doesnt improve flexibility to the joints. It only helps in calcium absorption from the intestines. Vit D has not got any role in osteoarthritis treatment. It can be used in osteoporosis and Vit D deficiency and now that the vit D levels are back to normal there is no need for continuing it.
