Spine, hip and knee surgeries are some of the most common procedures performed by orthopedic services surgeons in Nairobi. In most cases, these surgeries result in a complete recovery for patients who suffer from debilitating back pain and physical disability caused by spinal deformities or recurrent knee injuries.

The nairobi spine and orthopaedic centre Nairobi is one that offers advanced surgical procedures to correct musculoskeletal conditions like scoliosis (curvature of spine), degenerative arthritis (wear-and-tear) and other joint conditions that require surgery to restore mobility or relieve pain

Spine Surgery

The spine is the column of bones that protects the spinal cord, which is made up of nerve fibers that carry signals between the brain and the rest of the body. The spinal cord begins at your brain stem and extends down through your neck, back and lower back (your lumbar region).

The nerves in your spine are called nerve roots. These nerves carry information from all parts of your body to your brain so that you can feel things like touch or pain, or move muscles when you want to walk or run.

 If one or more of these nerves becomes compressed or irritated due to disease or injury, it can cause problems such as numbness in a hand or foot; weakness in an arm or leg; pain radiating into different parts of your body (called radiculopathy); muscle spasms; difficulty urinating due to bladder compression by scar tissue around nerve roots caused by surgery on them (for example: laminectomy operation); bowel problems such as constipation after a spinal fusion procedure involving removal of part(s)  of vertebrae/”bones” within spine itself.

Knee Replacement

Knee replacement surgery is a surgical procedure in which the damaged parts of your knee are replaced with artificial materials.

The procedure can be done on either side of the knee. It is usually recommended if you have severe arthritis in one or both knees, pain when walking and are no longer able to do day-to-day activities comfortably.

During this procedure, an incision is made over the front part of your thighbone (femur) or behind it. The damaged cartilage surfaces in your joint are removed and replaced with metal implants that resemble plastic sleeves for each side of your knee joint (see images above). These metal sleeves fit into grooves cut into bone blocks taken from another part of your body such as an upper arm bone (humerus), shinbone (tibia) or hip socket area called acetabulum.

Hip Replacement

Hip replacement surgery is a surgical procedure in which the hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant, that is, a hip prosthesis. The most common cause of hip replacement surgery is osteoarthritis.

Hip replacement surgery involves removing the diseased bone and cartilage from your own hip joint, then replacing it with an artificial implant made of metal alloys or ceramics (such as cobalt chromium). The new joint will allow you to move more easily and reduce pain from arthritis.

Shoulder Surgery and Repair

The shoulder is a complex joint that allows you to move your arms in many different directions. It’s also one of the most frequently injured joints, and can cause significant pain if it is not treated properly. Shoulder surgery is performed by a surgeon who specializes in orthopaedic surgery (the medical specialty that deals with disorders of the musculoskeletal system).

The goal of shoulder replacement surgery is to remove damaged tissue and repair or replace joints using grafts, screws, or other implants.
