Dr Praveen Tittal is one of the best Arthroscopic Surgeon in India for any kind of ACL or PCL Surgery. ACL or PCL injuries occur due to trauma or injury usually in a sports or fitness activity. The ligament gets stretched and tears either partially or completely when the foot is firmly planted and the knee locks, twists or pivots at the same time. This commonly occurs in sports like basketball, football, soccer, and gymnastics, where a sudden change in direction stresses and damages the ligament. Women are more prone to ACL and PCL injuries than men because of different anatomy.
If the knee ligament tears, this is a knee dislocation. Ligaments can possibly heal on their own, but multi-ligament tears will need medical assistance if a person wants to fully heal from this knee disorder.
Our doctor will give you a physical exam. If your knee is very tense and swollen with blood, the doctor may use a needle to drain it. You may need X-rays to make sure you donít have a broken bone, as well as an MRI to check on any ligament injuries. MRI should be done once the swelling from the injury has subsided. MRI is the gold standard for diagnosing Ligament injuries like ACL or PCL. However not all radiologists are able to correctly diagnose the quantum of the injury so it is always the best option to get a CD of the MRI Scan so that our specialists can have a look at the images from the CD.
One must not rush into surgery after an ACL or PCL Injury. Unless there is a complete tear of the ligament one must try the conservative treatment for 1-2 months before deciding on the surgery. However in cases of complete tear, surgery is the best option once the swelling has subsided. Patient's requirements from the joint after the injury has healed will be a deciding factor. At our sports injury hospitals in India our orthopedic surgeons will explain you and help you in taking important decisions regarding the surgery. In India and metro cities like Delhi and Gurgaon, the arthroscopic repair of ACL / PCL is available at very few hospitals. Most of the orthopaedic surgeons have moved in the domain of knee replacement and therefore finding a good arthroscopic surgeon is very difficutl. Dr Praveen Tittal is one of the best doctors at Fortis Hospital, Gurgaon specializing in all kinds of arthroscopic surgeries of knee, shoulder and hip joint.
Non-surgical treatment may be appropriate for patients who are less active, do not participate in activities that require running, jumping or pivoting, and are interested in physical therapy to regain range of motion and strength to match the uninjured leg.
In most of the cases an implant is used to anchor the torn ligament to the bone. We use the FDA approved important implants only for this surgery.
Healthcare Costs in India are already lower as compared to other western countries. Every hospital keeps upgrading their service profile and keeps adding newer doctors to their team. Our experts are always on top of these developments and keep evaluating the different hospitals and the treatments offered by them. We will choose the best combination of doctor, hospital and cost for your treatment once we receive your query. The cost for single knee ACL or PCL repair in India varies from USD 3000 - 5000. For query please contact or whatsapp at +91-9810333738 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Normally the ACL Tear Surgical Repair using imported implants would cost USD 3000 with one day of hospital stay while the PCL surgery would cost USD 3500. If cost is a concern then lower category bed would reduce the cost of the surgery by few hundred dollars.
Physical therapy is the mainstay of rehabilitation regardless of whether or not a surgery is performed. This is the best way to get rid of initial pain. Rehabilitation and return to normal function after surgical repair of an ACL tear can take between 3-6 months for full recovery. A balance between things to do and those not to be done has to be kept for maximum recovery and muscle strengthening. After the surgery our rehab team is in constant touch with the patient through video calls to make sure that proper rehab is taking place back home.
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.
