Hello Tulshi, As per our knowledge, Kienbock disease also known as avascular necrosis in which the lunate bone, one of eight bones in the wrist, suffers the blood loss which leads to death of the bone. Basically, the treatment options depend upon the severity of the disease.

 

In the early stages, the treatment can be observation or immobilization. And for more advanced stages, usually, surgery is recommended. Hand therapy is only designed to relieve pain and restore function and not for changing the course of the disease. For further and better treatment, you can consult any orthopedist.

 

To ease your search, you can refer to our list of Best Orthopedists in Kolkata. 

Hope our answer helps you.

Hello Mohammad, Below we have listed a few treatments that will help to reduce your neck and waist pain: Cortisone injections : These may be injected into the epidural space, around the spinal cord. Cortisone is an anti-inflammatory drug. It helps reduce inflammation around the nerve roots. Injections may also be used to numb areas thought to be causing the pain. Botox : Botox (botulism toxin), according to some early studies, is thought to reduce pain by paralyzing sprained muscles in spasm. These injections are effective for about 3 to 4 months. Traction: Pulleys and weights are used to stretch the back. This may result in a herniated disk moving back into position. It can also relieve pain, but only while traction is applied. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): CBT can help manage chronic back pain by encouraging new ways of thinking. It may include relaxation techniques and ways of maintaining a positive attitude. Studies have found that patients with CBT tend to become more active and do exercise, resulting in a lower risk of back pain recurrence. But before undergoing any treatment we suggest you visit your nearest Neurologist and get the complete detail. Hope this answer helps you.

My father was unable to walk properly (not able to move the legs freely). Unable to lift the weights, foot drop, unable to write properly sometimes, some muscle loss was seen in limbs. We have gone to hospitals in Hyderabad but there was no improvement in his condition. Please help me in finding out the doctor and treatment for this condition?

Knee replacement surgery is done to replace the damaged joints so patient is relieved of symptoms. The knee joint with an artificial knee called prosthesis made of metal, plastic, and ceramic. It helps to restore function of the damaged knee and relieve arthritis pain. Knee replacement surgery is advised if the pain is interfering with your daily activities and negatively affecting your quality of life. Types of knee replacement surgery Simultaneous bilateral knee replacement - When both knees are replaced at the same time. The primary advantage of a procedure is that there is only one hospital stay and one rehabilitation period to heal both knees. But rehabilitation may be slower.Also these patients may need assistance at home also. Generalized fitness is important here. Staged bilateral knee replacement- Each knee is replaced at a different time. These surgeries are done a few months apart. This staged approach helps one knee to recover before the second surgery. The main advantage of a this procedure is the reduced risk of complications and also requires a shorter hospital stay. However, since this procedure requires two surgeries, the overall rehabilitation period can be longer. Either surgery may involve any combination of total knee replacement or partial knee replacement. The risks associated with this surgery: infection,blood clots, failure of the artificial joint, heart attack etc. Post surgery care, rehabiliatation is very important. Hope our answer helps you.

By both knees have been swollen and could not walk freely. It is very difficult to get on rickshaw or e_ rickshaw. Besides this I am suffering from food drop problem in right leg. Please advise whether both keen replacement is necessary for me and whether I have to face any difficulty if I do my operation outside my home City i.e. Kolkata.

Dear Aakash, Once the doctor evaluates the case the first line of treatment is rest, limited movements, medications and if needed surgery. Once the pain settles physiotherapy is needed. Life style modification, like excercises, weight loss, avoiding long hour sitting at one place etc. is very important. Consult an orthopedic. Hope our answer helps you.

Hello, Since you have mentioned that your father's heart pumping is low which means you must have done ECHO which might be showing low ejection fraction. Considering your father’s age, low cardiac output, dyspnea (breathlessness) and history of blood pressure kindly consult an experienced cardiologist who can guide you through the root cause of this problem. Hope your father recovers soon.

As per my understanding you are having discomfort in your waist, knee and gradual decreased sensation in your lower limbs and now difficulty in walking too. There are several causes which can lead to this kind of presentation. Causes generally are classified into spinal causes, traumatic causes or neuromuscular causes etc. Eg: slip disc, multiple sclerosis pinched nerve syndrome, peripheral neuropathy and many more. Treatment generally will be physiotherapy, occupational therapy, medication if required surgery but if there is weakness, difficulty in walking, numbness it’s a medical emergency. So kindly consult an orthopaedic and a neurologist to rule out what exactly is the pathology behind your symptoms and get treated accordingly. Hope our answer helps you.
