Top Medical Specialties of Himchan Hospital · Spondylolisthesis · Knee Ligament Damage · Degenerative Hip Arthritis · Torn Meniscus · Degenerative Arthritis Spondylolisthesis Spondylolisthesis is a severe condition where one of the vertebral bones is separated and slides over the bone directly below it. Doctors need an X-Ray and, in extreme cases, an MRI scan to diagnose and confirm spondylolisthesis. Treatment for spondylolisthesis is complex but doable by a specialized, world-class hospital-like Himchan Hospital. The first form of therapy for spondylolisthesis includes percutaneous epidural neuroplasty, in which a microcatheter is inserted into the region where there is pain. The other form of treatment provides spondylodesis, in which the vertebrae are fixed with screws. Knee Ligament Damage The knee's ligaments are crucial for knee stability, and damage to these ligaments is painful, and its treatment is complex. The two pairs of ligaments, the collateral ligaments and cruciate ligaments, can be damaged if there is suddenly a twisting movement of the knee or a winding force pushes through the knee. The ligament damage can be in the form of a minimal tear, a partial tear, or a complete tear. If left untreated, this ligament damage can become the basis of chronic osteoarthritis. The treatment for knee ligament damage may require a knee brace and crutches if the ligament tear is minimal, where the healing period will be around 4-6 weeks. However, Himchan Hospital can successfully perform treatment procedures for complete and partial tears as well. This is either done through stitching the ligaments together or by grafting new tissues on it. Both methods are delicate and can be performed to the patient's utmost satisfaction at Himchan Hospital. Degenerative Hip Arthritis Degenerative hip arthritis is a debilitating and painful condition. Degenerative hip arthritis can be classified into either primary osteoarthritis or secondary osteoarthritis. In primary osteoarthritis, the cartilage in the hip can wear off with age. In secondary arthritis, the cartilage degenerates and wears away because of another underlying disease. An X-Ray is needed to confirm the presence of arthritis, while MRI scans can measure the degree to which the hip has degenerated. Degenerative Hip Arthritis treatment may include medication, exercise, physical therapy, and surgical intervention. Himchan Hospital can derive the best treatment plans for patients with degenerative hip arthritis, and they ensure the complete patient’s recovery and satisfaction. Torn Meniscus The meniscus is a piece of crescent-shaped cartilaginous tissue that can prevent friction in the knee joint. If the meniscus is torn, the fibrocartilage in the knee begins stripping off. X-Rays are not sufficient for locating meniscus tears, which is why Himchan Hospital deploys the use of MRI scans to determine the position and depth of the incision. Professionals in this hospital use various treatment methods for different types of meniscal repairs. These treatments may include meniscectomy, meniscus repair, and meniscal transplant. This hospital can be trusted with these meticulous procedures and their perfect execution. Their procedures are safe, secure, and completely reliable. Degenerative Arthritis In degenerative arthritis, the cartilage's cushioning wears off, and there is immense pain due to the friction caused by bones rubbing together. It is a severe disease and needs experienced hands to be dealt with. Himchan Hospital chooses the best treatment option to treat degenerative arthritis, depending on the patient's health and the level to which arthritis has progressed. Depending on the level of progression, the pain can be eased with medication and physical therapy, or they might be treated with advanced procedures like arthroscopy and osteochondral autograft.
