Session 01: Arthroplasty

Arthroplasty is a surgical approach of  orthopedics for the restoration, resurfacing, realignment and for the reconstruction of the joints. Joint Reconstructions are preferred when the medical treatment no longer providing enough relief from pain and disability. Arthroplasty has become the choice of operation for most hip and knee problems. Shoulder, elbow,  finger joints and ankle are more likely to be treated with resection arthroplasty.

Session 02: Total Hip Arthroplasty

The hip bone is one of the large bones which majorly consist of three parts namely ilium, pubis and the ischium. In hip arthroplasty the femoral head and acetabulum are replaced with their prosthesis components to anchor the bone to regain with its functional motions, and to replace the severely damaged hip region. In THA the hip bones are replaced with the socket and ball joint prosthesis whereas in Hemiarthroplasty, the surgical procedure includes only the replacement of one half of the hip joint with the artificial components.

Session 03: Total Knee Arthroplasty

The largest joint of the body is knee, which is most easily injured. The major parts of the knee joints are shinbone, thighbone and kneecap. The most common injuries that affect the knee joints are fractures, dislocation, Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Injuries, Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) Injuries, Collateral Ligament Injuries, Meniscal Tears, Tendon Tears. The initial injuries of the knee were treated by the RICE method. But based on the severity of the injury both surgical and non-surgical treatments are preferred by the surgeons and depending on the patients.

Session 05: Foot and Ankle Arthroplasty

Ankle joint is one of the complex joints that includes three bones tibia, fibula and talus, all these bones together provides the motion support for the ankle joint. Mostly people suffer from the ankle arthritis, where the cartilage of the joint gets wear out. The ankle arthroplasty is a surgical technique where the damaged part of the ankle is replaced with the combination of metal and medical grade plastics, polyethylene which are similar process to the hip and knee replacement. These replacement surgery methods tends to regain the motion activities, allow the patients to relieve pain and return to their normal activities.

Session 06: Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a type of keyhole surgery which used to diagnose and treat problems with joints. It is an operating procedure in which a tube-like instrument called arthroscope, a type of endoscope is inserted into a joint to inspect, diagnose, and to repair tissues. Knee and shoulder arthroscopy are two common surgeries of this type. Due to the technological advancements the components of arthroscopes and the cameras to which are attached have steadily improved and now provide very high definition digital images. This enables them to provide for accurate diagnosis and surgical treatment of knee problems. Mostly arthroscopy surgeries are performed to evaluate and to treat orthopaedic injuries including torn floating cartilage, torn cartilage, ACL reconstruction, to trim the damaged cartilage and to correct of deformities.

Session 07: Hip Arthroscopy

Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which an orthopedic surgeon uses an arthroscope, or small high-definition camera, to correct specific causes of chronic hip pain. The most common form of hip problem know as femoral acetabular impingement. Arthroscopy realign abnormal bony structure in the hip joint to regain a proper fit between the ball and socket. It also repairs the related structural damage in the hip. Hip arthroscopy is a form of hip preservation surgery. The surgical procedures are intended to fix underlying structural problems and restore optimal joint health and function.

Session 08: Knee Arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopic surgery is a procedure performed through small incisions to replace the injuries to tissues such as cartilage, ligaments within the knee joint area. Arthroscopic surgeries ranges from minor procedures such as flushing or smoothing out bone surfaces or tissue fragments i.e. lavage and debridement which are associated with osteoarthritis, to the realignment of a dislocated knee and ligament grafting surgeries. The range of knee surgeries techniques represents very different procedures, risks, and aftercare requirements.

Session 09: Shoulder Arthroscopy

Shoulder arthroscopy is now the common approach, which is used to examine shoulder joint, acromioclavicular joint and subacromial space.  Many surgical procedures can now be achieved arthroscopically, including rotator cuff repair, decompression and shoulder stabilisation. The shoulder arthroscopy is suggested when shoulder ailments cause pain and do not improve with the conservative treatment. These conditions are caused by injury, overstrain and age-related degeneration of the shoulder. This procedure assists a lot in the resolution of such disease with the restoration of normal function and range of motion of the shoulder.

Session 10: Foot and Ankle Arthroscopy

A foot and ankle arthroscopy is a type of minimally invasive surgery to diagnose and to treat foot and ankle joint injuries or conditions. Ankle arthroscopy allows the physicians to see the current status of the ligaments, cartilage, synovia and bones forming the complex ankle joint. Foot and Ankle arthroplasty helps to reduce ankle pain and improve overall function.

Session 11: Orthopedic Trauma

Orthopedic trauma is a category of Orthopedic surgery focusing on problems related to the soft tissues, bone and joints of the whole-body following trauma. The main goal of this specific area in the field of orthopedics surgery is to heal the fractured bones, as well as restoring the anatomic alignment of the joint surfaces for recovery and return to extreme function of the injured body portion. These orthopedic physicians utilize various leading-edge techniques including minimally invasive surgery and advanced external fixation. Due to advanced technologies bone graft substitutes and bone-forming proteins are often used to assist in the reconstruction of bones that need not healed.

Session 13: Bones and Joints infections

Bone Infection is the process of invasion by causative agents which produce toxins, resulting in the illness of the biological system. Certainly, bones and joints are infected by the bacterial, fungal and viral  organisms which gets invaded through our skin, eyes, ears, mouth, nose and mucous membranes,  which is called as septic arthritis. The infections that are caused by bacteria in bones are termed the Osteomyelitis. The diagnosis and treatment method varies from laboratory test to various internal view scans. The Intravenous antibiotics, vasopressor medications, insulin and corticosteroids are other therapies involved in the treatment against infections.

Session 14: Fracture and its Complications

Fracture are known as the broken bone which is referred to be damage in the continuity of the bone. The causes of bone fracture high force impact or stress on bones. In some cases, the fractures are caused due to some medical conditions and diseases which weakens the bones named the pathological fractures. The fracture includes many conditions where the bones may completely fracture or partially fractured or broken into pieces. The order in which the bones may broke are crosswise, lengthwise or in multiple pieces. Based on causes and symptoms of the bones the fractures are variously divided into groups with their respective medical care and treatments. The risk factors that are caused during the initial level of Orthopedic trauma and neurovascular and soft tissue damages are considered acute. On the other hand, factors caused at initial treatment or post-operative treatments are the delayed complications.

Session 15: Physical medicine and rehabilitation

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is a medical category which aims to  enhance and restore functional ability, quality of life for those with physical impairments disabilities, diseases which are affecting the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and Tendons. Physical activity weaken the likelihood of medical illness, lower the incidence of the major causes of death, and improves the overall health and quality of life for patients with common medical diseases or conditions. By increasing muscle mass and strength and fostering cardiovascular endurance, exercise improves functional activity status  for of daily living and protects against injury. There are certain exercise which are also mostly prescribed to rehabilitate patients after certain musculoskeletal injury. Preoperative exercise procedures are prescribed before many selective surgical procedures to increase postoperative recovery.

Session 17: Protheses and Orthotics

Prosthetics involves the use of artificial limbs called prostheses to enhance the function of persons with limb loss. The prosthesis must be a unique combination of  suitable materials, alignment, design, and construction to meet the functional needs of an individual. They are complex and vary on upper and lower extremities. Orthotics involves attention and creativity in the design and fabrication of external braces called orthoses as part of a patient’s treatment. The orthosis performs to control weakened or deformed regions of the body of a physically challenged person. Orthoses may be used on various areas of the body including the upper and lower limb.
