Joint Replacement Surgery

Knee replacement, also known as knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure performed in Bahrain Specialist Hospital to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability. It is most commonly performed for osteoarthritis, and also for other knee diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. In patients with severe deformity from advanced rheumatoid arthritis, trauma, or long-standing osteoarthritis, the surgery may be more complicated and carry higher risk.

Joint replacement surgery or Replacement arthroplasty is performed in Bahrain Specialist Hospital, in which a dysfunctional joint surface is replaced with an orthopedic prosthesis. Joint replacement is considered as a treatment when severe joint pain or dysfunction is not alleviated by less-invasive therapies. It is a form of arthroplasty, and is often indicated from various joint diseases, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Sports Injuries

It is an interdisciplinary sub-specialty of medicine which deals with preventive care and treatment of professional sports personnel.
Sports medicine is not a single speciality as it involves orthopedic surgeons, nutritionist, researchers, and educators of different disciplines, health care providers and sports personal themselves.
Educating the sports personnel and training them accordingly to prevent injury during their specified sports is a task, which I stress to my patients.
Sports personnel with attention deficient or hyperactivity disorder tend to participate in-group contact sports rather than individual sports. Thus increasing their probability to sustain injuries.
It is proved that sport specialization appears to be an independent risk factor for injury, as opposed to simply being a function of increased sport exposure.
Hence Athletic associations, school administrators, coaches and sports medicine providers need to better educate parents and their athletes on the increased chances of injury risk and provide more opportunities for diversified athletic play.

Young athletes are vulnerable to a wide range of injuries, including

  • Overuse of arm and shoulder in sports like cricket, squash, badminton, tennis etc.
  • Overuse of hamstring and calf muscles in spite developing fatigue in sports like football, basketball.
  • epiphyseal injuries to knee, ankle and wrist joints in sports like tennis, soccer
  • Ligament injuries to knee, shoulder by improper placement of limb while landing or diving in sports like basketball and cricket.

Everyone wants a young athlete to get back to sports as quickly as possible, but it is important to address the injury accordingly may be surgically or simple rest with kinesotapping based on the type of injury. It is even more important to access the usage of the appropriate muscles post injury, and to find them triggering at appropriate time to prevent injuries.
