Orthopedics and Traumatology
The Orthopedics department at Koru Hospital is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Our team of expert orthopedic surgeons and specialists are committed to providing the highest quality care for patients with a wide range of orthopedic conditions.
Some of the conditions that are commonly treated in our Orthopedics department include:
Arthritis: a common condition that affects the joints and causes pain and stiffness.
Osteoporosis: a condition that weakens the bones, making them more likely to break.
Fractures: broken bones caused by injury or trauma.
Tendonitis: inflammation of a tendon, which is a fibrous tissue that connects muscle to bone.
Carpal tunnel syndrome: a condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm.
Herniated discs: a condition that occurs when the cushion between the vertebrae in the spine ruptures or bulges.
Scoliosis: a condition that causes the spine to curve to one side.
Our Orthopedics department uses a range of diagnostic tools and techniques to accurately diagnose these conditions, including:
X-rays: a non-invasive imaging technique that produces images of bones.
CT scans: a more detailed imaging technique that uses x-rays to produce 3D images of bones and soft tissues.
MRI scans: a non-invasive imaging technique that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body's internal structures.
Bone density tests: a test that measures the strength of bones and helps to diagnose osteoporosis.
Once a diagnosis has been made, our team will work with the patient to develop a personalized treatment plan. Treatment options may include:
Medications: such as pain relievers or anti-inflammatory drugs to manage pain and inflammation.
Physical therapy: exercises and stretches to help improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion.
Braces or splints: devices that help support or immobilize a joint or limb.
Surgery: in cases where conservative treatments are not effective, surgery may be necessary to repair or replace damaged or diseased joints.
