Hip replacement techniques from TUM, Germany

Visit my official site.

The Technische Universität München (TUM; Technical University of Munich) is a research university with campuses in Munich, Garching. It is a member of TU9, an incorporated society of the largest and most notable German institutes of technology. TUM is ranked 1st in Germany and top 50 in the world. In the technical disciplines, engineering at the TUM attained 21st position which is the highest ranking among the German universities.

I got the opportunity to work with doctors at TUM, Germany for hip, shoulder, knee surgeries. This also included work on replacement surgeries. In particular anterior hip approach, Minimal invasive surgery techniques were discussed. This surgery technique is very new to India and very successful abroad as it leads to minimal pain and blood loss. This leads to faster and better recovery.
Devi talab hospital is running a camp for 2 months starting 8th July, where knee and hip replacement surgeries will be done. The knee replacement surgeries will be done at a subsidized rate of around 80 thousand.

Hip surgery in 12 minutes

Visit my official site.

 This is hip surgery for a 60 year old, high risk patient. This surgery completed in about 12 minutes. Though time is is not the most important factor, but in this case it was needed to reduce the chance of post operative infections, reduce the soft tissue trauma and reduce anesthetic stress on the patient.

My work with UCSF, San Franciso, USA contributed a lot in attaining the mastery at this surgery and reducing the operation timings. The patient was 60 year old female with high cardiac risk. The patient required a minimal antibiotic dose and recovered quickly in post operative stages

नई तकनीक से किया कुल्हे का ऑपरेशन

Visit my official site.

Hip replacement is one of the most successful operations in all of medicine, which prompts many orthopedic surgeons to think, as one leader in the field put it, “Why change something that doesn’t need fixing?”
The technique surgeons use is called anterior hip replacement, one of several minimally invasive operations that are associated with a shorter hospital stay, smaller incision, less trauma to muscles, less pain and blood loss, reduced risk of dislocation after surgery, faster healing and a quicker return to normal activities.here is no age limit for this elective operation unless an underlying health problem makes any operation too risky.
The usual reasons for hip replacement are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and traumatic arthritis, all of which can cause pain and stiffness that limit mobility and the ability to perform activities of daily living. Most patients try less drastic measures — physical therapy, medications (pain relievers, anti-inflammatory drugs and glucosamine supplements), injections of hyaluronic acid and walking aids — before deciding that surgery is their best hope for escaping chronic pain and disability.
The Minimal Approach -
Most important is that major muscles in the buttocks and thigh that help to stabilize the hip joint are not cut, reducing the risk of dislocation and speeding recovery. Patients spend less time in the hospital.
