Hand, elbow & shoulder surgery; Spinal disorders
Our experienced orthopedic specialists have consulting rooms in our clinic. With access to the clinic’s Emergency department, they are able to treat a variety of hand-related injuries and conditions.
We provide professional surgical services for:
• Fractures, animal bites and wounds that cause damage to tendons, arteries and nerves
• Medical conditions including:
– Carpal tunnel syndrome (compression of the middle nerve at the wrist causing sensitivity loss in the hands)
– Loss of mobility or finger deformity due to osteoarthritis
– Dupuytren’s contracture (spring fingers)
– Tendonitis and ligament instabilities.
While elbow conditions are less common than those of the hand or shoulder, they can cause significant mobility problems if not treated properly. Injuries to the elbow can affect the bone (fractures) or ligaments.
Conservative treatments such as medication, splints and physiotherapy are used in most cases. However, surgery may sometimes be necessary to reconstruct bone fragments and screw or suture torn ligaments.
The most common degenerative condition affecting the elbow is tennis elbow. This condition can be treated conservatively or surgically, depending on the severity of each individual case. Surgery may entail repairing the affected tendon or decompressing nerves that run through the elbow.
The specialists at our clinic perform many shoulder operations using sophisticated arthroscopy techniques. Some of the surgical procedures include suturing torn tendons or ligaments and remodeling damaged cartilage.
Patients with osteoarthritis can benefit from a stenting procedure, which is usually followed by rehabilitation to ensure maximal recovery. Although shoulder surgery can entail a long recovery process, excellent surgical expertise and improved prostheses help to ensure that patients are able to return to optimal mobility.
Surgeons at our clinic treat a variety of spinal conditions and disorders. The most common of these are:
• Malformations and developmental abnormalities (scoliosis, kyphosis, spondylolisthesis)
• Sequelae of trauma
• Degenerative spinal conditions
Conservative treatments for spinal disorders include functional therapies (physiotherapy and rehabilitation), medication and spinal corsets.
For disorders requiring surgery, our specialists use a variety of procedures and minimally invasive surgical techniques. These include decompression by partially removing herniated spinal discs and using rigid or flexible medical instruments to stabilize spinal areas.
