Symptoms of Meniscal Tear

  • Wear and tear on bones
  • Locking and popping of the knees
  • Tenderness of skin on the knee  
  • Inflammation and swelling around the ankle.

Non-Surgical Treatment

Initially, proper rest, ice packs and pain relievers are used to reduce the pain and swelling in the knee. And if the knee is locked or the meniscus is torn, the only viable solution is to move for a surgery at the earliest. Patients with degenerative tears are likely to settle with right treatments such as anti-inflammatory medication.

Surgical Treatment

Arthroscopic surgery for meniscal tear in India is too common nowadays. A few incisions are made in such a way that a small camera/arthroscope can be inserted into the joint. And another incision is made for inserting other surgical instruments to remove or repair the torn portion of the meniscus as well. Metal implants may use to support the repaired joint.

Get Back To Motion With Endoscopic Spine Surgery

Herniated discs are becoming a common issue among masses. Studies show that there are 10 million cases of herniated discs per year in India only! A herniated disc refers to a certain condition which results in the rupture of the central portion of the disc. Discs are basically pads that serve as cushions between the vertebral bodies that minimize the impact of movement on the spinal column. This condition is treated via various surgical methods but endoscopic spine surgery has become popular over the years.

What is endoscopic spine surgery?

Endoscopic spine surgery has brought in a revolution in the field of spine surgeries. It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure. Unlike the traditional spine surgery, where the patient's back is cut open before operating on the spine, the endoscopic method demands no such thing. In this procedure, the surgeon inserts an advanced surgical instrument through a small incision made on the skin and the surgery is performed with the assistance of an advanced endoscope instrument and x-ray guidance. The x-ray termed as fluoroscope is used to ensure that the exact path is taken to reach the affected disc. A tubular retractor is placed on the bone surface and procedure is performed with the help of the instrument. A nerve retractor is also used to separate nerve from the damaged disc. The surgeon then removes the herniated portion of the disc, cleanses it and the nerve is returned to the normal position.
At the end of the procedure, the retractors are removed which in turn allows the tissues to enclose the surgery area.
