Osteoarthritis, commonly known as calcification, is a disease that occurs after the deformity of the cartilages forming the joint surface. After calcification, the patient has problems in moving the calcified joint and quality of life is limited in daily activities. Ask your specialist if you have any doubts about hip and knee calcification.
Knee prosthesis is used in the treatment of patients who have difficulty in their daily life due to the pain they experience, who have limited mobility, who have too much knee pain and difficulty in walking. It is a surgical method used when resting, drug therapy and physical therapy are not successful and when the disease reaches advanced levels. This operation is performed if the knee joint is deemed to be suitable for the knee prosthesis surgery by the doctors as a result of the loss of function of the knee joint and its excessive wear.
Knee calcification may be caused by rheumatic diseases or genetic diseases, as well as by malnutrition and by adopting a sedentary lifestyle. People with genetic predisposition or rheumatic diseases should take some precautions to avoid problems such as knee calcification.
Arthroscopy can be defined as a tool designed to visualize the inside of joints and to treat injuries or diseases that occur within the joint. Arthroscopy is generally used in knee joint related diseases; It is also used in shoulder, hip and foot and wrist surgery.
In the treatment of shoulder dislocation, the shoulder is the primary candidate joint for recurrent dislocations, especially if careful treatment is not performed when the first dislocation occurs. Therefore, when shoulder dislocation occurs, if the conditions are appropriate, the patient should be evaluated by MRI. When the dislocation occurs, it is necessary to check which tissues are torn and whether there is a fracture accompanying the dislocation. If there is a bone fracture accompanying the first dislocation or if some of the important ligaments are broken, sometimes surgical treatment may be recommended even after the first dislocation.
Knee prostheses are usually used in elderly patients. When the elderly patient is mentioned, it is the age group where additional diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and blood pressure disease are observed together. Therefore, if it is decided to perform a knee prosthesis to a patient, a comprehensive internal examination is performed before the operation. Electrolyte is drawn, lung film is taken, blood analysis is performed and the patient is thus prepared for anesthesia.
Bone resorption usually does not cause any symptoms or complaints, so the patient does not notice that he has bone resorption. Patients usually learn about bone resorption when they are being checked up or diagnosed with another disease. For this reason, a woman who does not complain and feels very skeletal as well as a woman may have bone resorption, so every woman entering menopause should be examined and analyzed for bone resorption. Then, the bone mineral density measurement is repeated every few years.
