All Conditions We Treat

Total hip replacement, (total hip arthroplasty), is the replacement of a hip joint as an alternative to other treatments. Arthritis damage that causes pain that no longer responds to treatment is usually the reason a hip replacement is chosen. The damaged pieces of the hip joint are replaced with artificial parts.

When normal daily activities like walking and climbing stairs are hard due to painful knees, usually caused by arthritis or injury, total knee replacement is an option. Most often used when pain and stiffness are not helped by medication and other treatments, the knee joint (which is the largest joint in the body) is replaced by artificial parts to restore pain-free movement.

The trigeminus, or the fifth cranial nerve, is responsible for all the sensations in the face, including touch, pain and temperature. The nerve has three major branches, one for the lower part of the face, one for the middle and one for the forehead area. If the normal nerve pathway is blocked or compressed, facial sensation may be interrupted.

Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic condition that affects the trigeminal nerve connecting the face with the brain. Brushing teeth, smiling, eating and any touch to the face can cause extreme bouts of pain. Symptoms generally progress from short bouts of pain to longer episodes. Ageing and conditions like multiple sclerosis associated with nerve damage are causes.

Trigger Finger

With trigger finger, the flexor tendon that controls finger and thumb movement gets stuck as it travels through an inflamed tendon sheath tunnel. This restricts movement of the finger or thumb, causing a popping as the finger straightens, stiffness, or the finger/thumb to be stuck in a bent position. Certain repetitive hand uses and some illnesses like diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis can cause trigger finger, and it is most often seen in women. 

The following departments see patients with Trigger Finger:
