The general aim of early fracture management is to control hemorrhage, provide pain relief, prevent ischemia-reperfusion injury and remove potential sources of contamination (foreign body and nonviable tissues). Once these are accomplished, the fracture should be reduced and the reduction should be maintained, which will optimize the conditions for fracture union and minimize potential complications.
The goal in managing fractures is to ensure that the involved limb segment when healed, has returned to its maximal possible function. This is accomplished by obtaining and subsequently maintaining a reduction of the fracture with an immobilization technique that allows the fracture to heal and at the same time provides the patient with functional aftercare.
ORIF: The objectives of ORIF include adequately exposing the fracture site, while minimizing soft tissue stripping and obtaining a reduction of the fracture. Once a reduction is achieved, it must be stabilized and maintained.
Kirschner wires or K-wires are commonly used for temporary and definitive treatment of fractures. However K-wires resist only changes in alignment; they do not resist rotation and they have poor resistance to torque and bending forces. K-wires are commonly used as adjunctive fixation for screws or plates and screws that involve fractures around joints.
Plates and screws are commonly used in the management of articular fractures. Plates provide strength and stability to neutralize the forces on the injured limb for functional postoperative aftercare.
Dr AK Sethi is one of the most experienced orthopaedic surgeon in Gurgaon and Manesar having more than 40 years of experience in the management of fractures. The simple fracture which requires a cast will cost you not more than Rs. 5,000 while the more complex fractures which may require either open reduction or closed reduction could cost in the range of Rs. 20,000 - 1,50,000 depending upon the quantum of work that needs to be done in the operating room and the materials used. The materials used in fracture surgery are wires, plates, rods and screws. If these are made of titanium then the cost would be higher as compared to steel implants. Both the titanium and steel implants are MRI compatible but titanium has a better acceptance by the body as compared to steel.
A good hospital needs to have qualified doctors with good experience. Most of the hospitals in the vicinity offer services of doctors who either do not have proper qualifications or do not possess requisite experience. We do not claim to be a tertiary care hospital providing services across all the streams of medicine and surgery but whatever service you get at Yashlok Hospital are first class in terms of quality.
We are probably the only hospital which has an inhouse Ultrasound and Colour Doppler facility. The hospital has state of art Digital X-Ray, ECG, Pathology Lab, Dental Centre, Physiotherapy Centre and Inhouse Pharmacy. The operating room at the hospital has the deployment of cutting edge technology which gives us the confidence of doing the most complex of the surgeries with relative ease.
Healthcare is a very different stream from any other service industry. People come to us only when they are in a problem which they are not able to understand. All our team members are thoroughly trained to provide the medical care with highest ethical standards and with compassion and empathy. The entire care programme is designed keeping the centricity of the patient in mind.
Dr Rajesh Choudhary is talking to Ms. Chitra Sharma of 24 TV Network about Brain Stroke Prevention and Cure. Stroke is a very debilitating disease and lots of information needs to be shared in order to prevent brain stroke and its consequences.
Breast Cancer is one of the most common cancer amongst women and if it is not diagnosed timely and given proper treatment then it could turn out to be a killer. Dr Sumita Singh is one of the most renowned breast cancer specialist in India and she is talking about Breast Cancer in this Video.
