Orthopedic surgery at Angeles Hospital includes a wide range of procedures that are done to repair, reshape, or replace damaged or diseased parts of hip, knee, lower back, or shoulder joints. These surgical procedures are performed in order to improve flexibility and reduce pain.
Hip replacement surgery involves removing diseased or injured bone and cartilage from the hip and replacing it with an artificial ball and socket made of metal and other artificial materials. This procedure helps restore flexibility and reduces hip pain and stiffness.
Hip resurfacing surgery involves reshaping an injured or diseased hip ball and placing a metal prosthesis on it, rather than replacing the whole joint. The healthy part of the hip joint is left intact, and a small peg is used to hold the metallic cap securely in place.
ACL surgery involves reconstructing a torn or injured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee joint. This procedure is sometimes performed using minimally invasive techniques that only require small incisions.
Meniscus repair surgery involves repairing tears in the cartilage between the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone). This procedure can be performed using minimally invasive techniques and a local anesthetic. The damaged part of the meniscus is trimmed or completely removed to restore normal function.
Lumbar Dynamic Stabilization
Lumbar dynamic stabilization surgery involves placing screws and a stabilizing rod in the lower back to reduce pain while still allowing flexibility. This minimally invasive procedure requires tiny incisions and the use of specially designed instruments that allow surgeons to see inside the affected area.
Knee replacement surgery involves removing diseased or injured parts of the knee joint and replacing them with an artificial one. During total knee replacement surgery, the entire knee joint is replaced. Partial knee replacement surgery involves replacing one side of the knee joint.
Rotator Cuff Repair
Rotator cuff repair surgery involves repairing damaged or diseased tendons and muscles in the rotator cuff. This procedure helps restore range of motion in the shoulder joint and reduces pain and inflammation.
Shoulder replacement surgery involves removing diseased or injured parts of the shoulder joint and replacing them with a new artificial joint. During partial shoulder replacement surgery, the affected portion of the joint is replaced. Total shoulder replacement surgery involves replacing the entire joint. Reverse shoulder replacement surgery involves placing an artificial ball on the shoulder blade and an artificial socket at the top of the upper arm.
