Arthrodesis, commonly known as joint fusion, is a surgical procedure designed to relieve pain and restore function in severely damaged or diseased joints. At Dr. Isaac Bone & Joint Speciality Hospital, we specialize in this advanced orthopedic surgery, providing relief for patients suffering from debilitating joint conditions.

Arthrodesis involves the fusion of two or more bones in a joint, resulting in the elimination of movement in that joint. This procedure is typically recommended for patients with severe arthritis, joint degeneration, or traumatic injuries that have not responded to other treatments such as medication, physical therapy, or less invasive surgeries. By fusing the bones, arthrodesis stabilizes the joint, reduces pain, and allows the patient to regain a more active and comfortable lifestyle.

Our team of orthopedic surgeons at Dr. Isaac Bone & Joint Speciality Hospital uses state-of-the-art techniques and equipment to perform arthrodesis. The procedure begins with the removal of the damaged cartilage from the joint surfaces. Next, the bones are positioned correctly and secured together using metal implants such as screws, plates, or rods. Over time, the bones grow together, forming a single solid bone. This fusion process helps to significantly reduce pain and improve joint stability.

Recovery from arthrodesis involves a period of immobilization, typically with the use of a cast or brace, to ensure proper healing. Physical therapy is also an essential part of the recovery process, helping patients to strengthen surrounding muscles and regain as much function as possible. Although the fused joint will no longer move, many patients find that their overall mobility improves because the debilitating pain is relieved.

Arthrodesis can be performed on various joints, including the spine, ankle, wrist, and fingers. At Dr. Isaac Bone & Joint Speciality Hospital, we tailor each arthrodesis procedure to the specific needs and conditions of our patients, ensuring the best possible outcomes. Our goal is to help you return to your daily activities with reduced pain and improved stability.

If you are struggling with severe joint pain and other treatments have not provided relief, arthrodesis may be the solution you need.
