ASI Hip Arthroplasty
The field of orthopedics is constantly researching new techniques to help make joint replacement surgery less painful and to help patients recover more quickly. One of the most talked about orthopedic advancements is the ASI (Anterior Supine Intermuscular) hip replacement technique. Minimally invasive hip replacement involves more than just a shorter incision. Modern minimally invasive techniques also focus on the way surgeons gain access to the hip joint. The goal is to minimize muscle and tendon disruption, making surgery less traumatic for patients, allowing for shorter hospital stays and quicker recoveries. Unlike traditional minimally invasive hip replacement techniques, the ASI technique uses an incision at the front of the hip instead of the side or back of the hip. This modified incision placement allows surgeons to directly approach the hip joint by going between the muscles that surround the hip joint. Traditional approaches would require cutting the muscles and/or tendons that surround the hip. The ASI minimally invasive hip replacement procedure is designed to reduce the trauma to the tissues surrounding the hip joint. By preserving the muscles and tendons, surgeons may enable their patients to walk the day of surgery, to experience less postoperative pain, and to return to daily activities more quickly.

Knee arthroplasty MIS
Minimally-invasive quadriceps-sparing total knee replacement is a new surgical technique that allows surgeons to insert the same time-tested reliable knee replacement implants through a shorter incision using surgical approach that avoids trauma to the quadriceps muscle (see figure 1) which is the most important muscle group around the knee. This new technique which is sometimes called quadriceps-sparing knee replacement uses an incision that is typically only 3-4” in length (see figure 2) and the recovery time is much quicker – often permitting patients to walk with a cane within a couple of weeks of surgery or even earlier. The less-traumatic nature of the surgical approach also may decrease post-operative pain and diminish the need for rehab and therapy compared to more traditional approaches. The main potential benefits of the MIS technique include: A) More rapid return of knee function, B) Smaller incision, C) Decreased post-operative pain, D) Less blood transfusion need, E) Same reliable surgical implants as Traditional Knee Replacement.

Shoulder arthroplasty
Although shoulder joint replacement is less common than knee or hip replacement, it is just as successful in relieving joint pain. Shoulder replacement surgery was first performed in the United States in the 1950s to treat severe shoulder fractures. Over the years, shoulder joint replacement has come to be used for many other painful conditions of the shoulder, such as different forms of arthritis. If nonsurgical treatments like medications and activity changes are no longer helpful for relieving pain, you may want to consider shoulder joint replacement surgery. Joint replacement surgery is a safe and effective procedure to relieve pain and help you resume everyday activities.

Knee Artrhroscopy for Meniscus Repair
Knee arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that allows doctors to view the knee joint without making a large incision (cut) through the skin and other soft tissues. Arthroscopy is used to diagnose and treat a wide range of knee problems the most usual of which is meniscal tears. During knee arthroscopy, the surgeon inserts a small camera, called an arthroscope, into the knee joint. The camera displays pictures on a video monitor, and the surgeon uses these images to guide miniature surgical instruments. Because the arthroscope and surgical instruments are thin, we can use very small incisions, rather than the larger incision needed for open surgery. This results in less pain for patients, less joint stiffness, and often shortens the time it takes to recover and return to favorite activities. Meniscal tears may be treated by 3 basic techniques: A) Arthroscopic repair. Small devices that look like darts are placed along the tear to stitch it up. Your body will absorb these over time. B) Arthroscopic partial meniscectomy. The doctor will remove a piece of the torn meniscus so your knee can function normally C) Arthroscopic total meniscectomy. During this procedure the whole meniscus will be removed.

Knee Atrhroscopy for chondral defects repair
Cartilage injuries are frequently recognized as a source of significant morbidity and pain in patients with previous knee injuries. The majority of patients who undergo routine knee arthroscopy have evidence of a chondral defect. These injuries represent a continuum of pathology from small, asymptomatic lesions to large, disabling defects affecting a major portion of one or more compartments within the knee joint. In comparison to patients with osteoarthritis, individuals with isolated chondral surface damage are often younger, significantly more active, and usually less willing to accept limitations in activities that require higher impact. At the present time, a number of surgical procedures exist, each with their unique indications varying from simple arthroscopic interventions to marrow tapping techniques, osteochondral auto/allo-grafting, cell-based techniques, growth factors and emerging gene therapy techniques.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Ligamentoplasty
An ACL injury is the tearing of the anterior cruciate (ACL) — one of the major ligaments in your knee. ACL injuries most commonly occur during sports that involve sudden stops, jumping or changes in direction — such as basketball, soccer, football, tennis, downhill skiing, volleyball and gymnastics. Many people hear or feel a "pop" in the knee when an ACL injury occurs. Your knee may swell, feel unstable and become too painful to bear weight. Surgery involves replacing the ACL by a graft. The operation usually takes about I hour. It is carried out arthroscopically except the first phase: harvest of the graft. Then after assessment of the lesions, the remnants of the broken ligament are partly taken away. Tibia and femur are prepared for making tunnels (with jigs) through which the graft will be passed. The graft is then inserted with appropriate tension and fixed with screws, pins or endobuttons.
