  • Treatments for Sports & Orthopaedic Injuries

    treatment for sports and orthopaedic injuries

    Sports and orthopaedic injuries commonly occur, and if left untreated, may lead to chronic problems or serious complications in the future. Often, prompt medical care and targeted procedural treatment can help prevent loss of mobility and improve quality of life.

    At Mount Elizabeth Hospitals, our specialised orthopaedic surgeons, consultants, nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists work together to diagnose and treat your condition. Mount Elizabeth offers modern surgical procedures and is committed to providing customised courses of treatment for each patient.

  • Robotic Partial Knee Replacement (MAKOplasty®)

    Robotic partial knee replacement (MAKOplasty®) is a surgical treatment designed to relieve pain in the knee caused by the wear and tear of joint cartilage. The partial knee resurfacing procedure is done using a robotic arm, which lets surgeons treat only the damaged part of the knee. The precise nature of the procedure means healthy bone and ligaments surrounding the damaged area are spared. It is best suited for adults suffering knee pain from osteoarthritis in one of the three knee compartments who are ineligible for a total knee replacement.

    The MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing procedure is designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration and potentially offers benefits such as improved surgical outcomes, less implant wear and loosening, joint resurfacing, bone and tissue sparing, smaller incision, less scarring, reduced blood loss, minimal hospitalisation, and faster recovery.

  • Total Knee Replacement

    knee arthritis

    Artificial (total) knee replacement is a procedure to replace the diseased (arthritic) parts of the joint with artificial joint components. Artificial knee replacement surgery is becoming an increasingly common way of treating the condition in older people.

    The main reason for replacing any arthritic joint with an artificial joint is to stop the bones from rubbing against each other and causing pain. Replacing the painful arthritic joint with an artificial joint gives the bones new surfaces to move smoothly without causing pain. The goal is to help you return to your normal activities with less pain and greater freedom of movement.

  • Decompression Laminectomy

    back and spine conditions

    Laminectomy is a surgical procedure to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerve roots which is caused by spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal, putting pressure on the spinal cord, which is filled with nerves. This causes pain, numbness or weakness in your legs, back, neck and arms.

    The procedure involves surgery to your back to remove the bone and tissue that is causing pressure on the spine. Laminectomy can also be used to treat spinal injuries, herniated discs (commonly known as slipped discs) and spinal tumours.

  • Knee Arthroscopy

    knee meniscus tear

    Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure of the knee to repair or replace a damaged meniscus (the C-shaped discs that cushion the knee). Meniscal repair is a relatively simple procedure that can be done by arthroscopic surgery (keyhole surgery). Knee arthroscopy can be done as an outpatient procedure (day surgery) so that you can go home on the same day.

    Arthroscopy is often recommended to treat many knee injuries, including meniscal tears. The smaller wounds from the arthroscopy causes less pain than those from open surgery as well as being more cosmetically appealing.

  • Corrective Spine Osteotomy

    degenerative spine conditions

    Corrective osteotomy is a surgical procedure to correct the abnormal curvature of your spine. The procedure is done to shorten or lengthen some of the bones in your spine and fuse them together in the correct alignment.

    Corrective osteotomy will reduce any pain and nerve compression. A more upright posture will make you feel less tired, as your upper body is now supported by a straighter spine. A straighter spine will also improve your physical appearance.

  • Total Hip Replacement

    hip pain

    Artificial hip replacement surgery involves replacing the femur (head of the thigh bone) and the acetabulum (hip socket) with artificial joint components. The artificial femur part (ball and stem) is made of strong metal or ceramic, and the artificial socket is made of polyethylene (durable, wear-resistant plastic) or metal backed with a plastic liner. The ball and socket are designed to glide together to replicate the hip joint. You may need hip replacement surgery when arthritis limits your everyday activities such as walking and bending, resting without pain, or moving or lifting your leg without stiffness. Hip replacement is recommended only after careful diagnosis of your joint problem. Surgery is likely to be needed when you have little pain relief from non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or if other treatments, such as physical therapy, do not relieve hip pain.

  • Carpal Tunnel Release

    carpal tunnel syndrome

    Carpal tunnel release involves cutting the carpal ligament to reduce pressure on the median nerve. The carpal ligament is one of the tissues that connect the bones in your wrist together and the nerve runs through your wrist to your hand. Carpal tunnel release is a minor procedure that can be performed as day surgery with local anaesthetic. The operation is usually done through a small cut on the palm of your hand, near your wrist, or by keyhole surgery.

    Surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome is usually done if you have had moderate to severe symptoms that have lasted for 6 months or longer. Symptoms include pain, numbness and tingling. The pain should go away immediately after surgery, but nerve symptoms of numbness and tingling may take longer to improve.

  • Decompression Interbody Fusion

    degenerative spine conditions

    Spinal fusion is recommended for patients who suffer from degenerated discs or other conditions where the spine is moving abnormally. Other conditions that may be treated by a spinal fusion surgery include a weak or unstable spine (caused by infections or tumours), fractures, scoliosis, or deformity.

    Interbody fusion is a minimally invasive type of spinal fusion, where the weakened or diseased disc is removed entirely and replaced by a steel cage filled with bone graft. The 2 vertebra bones above and below the disc are then connected using a steel plate and screws. This promotes bone healing and facilitates the fusion of the affected area. Visit your orthopaedic surgeon to understand if interbody fusion can be used to improve your back condition

  • Hip Arthroscopy

    spinal stenosis

    Hip arthroscopy is a form of minimally invasive or keyhole surgery that can be used for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. An arthroscope, a thin and flexible fibre-optic scope, is inserted into the hip joint through a small incision (2cm or less) to provide the surgeon with a visual of the interior of the joint. Other surgical tools can be inserted through additional incisions for the surgeon to operate on the hip, which may include repairing tears in the cartilage or removing unwanted growths on the joint. Hip arthroscopy comes with less risks compared to conventional methods, a shorter surgery duration and shorter recovery time.
