ADONIS offers services for surgical treatment of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system.
Our medical centers employ orthopedic traumatologists with extensive experience in high-tech surgical operations using modern endoscopic and arthroscopic technologies.
Surgical interventions are performed in the operating unit equipped with modern equipment that meets the highest standards. Patients spend the postoperative period in a comfortable hospital under the constant supervision of doctors and medical staff.
The main directions of surgical treatment in orthopedics:
- arthroscopic treatment of joint injuries
- corrective surgery for foot pathologies
- osteosynthesis of bone fractures
- surgical treatment of muscle and tendon injuries
- treatment of trauma consequences
- foot surgery
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed for the diagnosis and/or treatment of injuries of inner part of the joint. It is performed using an arthroscope – a type of endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a micro-incision. Arthroscopic manipulations can be performed to diagnose and treat many orthopedic disorders, including floating cartilage, torn cartilage surface, anterior cruciate ligament rupture and removal of damaged cartilage.
The advantage of arthroscopy over traditional open surgery is that the joint is not opened completely. Instead, for example, in arthroscopy of the knee, only two small incisions are made – one for insertion of the arthroscope, the other for surgical instruments, with which the complete removal of the patella can be performed. This shortens the postoperative recovery process and increases the success rate of the operation, since the degree of damage to the connective tissues is much lower than in the case of open surgery. That is especially useful for professional athletes who frequently injure knee joints and require little recovery time. With arthroscopy, the scars remain less noticeable due to the small size of the incisions.
For the normal process of arthroscopy, surgeons inject irrigation fluid into the articular cavity. Irrigation fluid is used to separate joints to provide space for surgery.
Surgical instruments used in artoscopy are smaller than traditional ones. Doctors, by observing the joint area on a video monitor, can diagnose and operate the tears of joint tissues, such as ligaments, menisci or cartilage.
It is technically possible to make arthroscopic diagnostics of almost any joint in the human body.
The joints most frequently examined and treated with arthroscopy:
