Treatments and Procedures at Greenleaf Health Centre includes
Arthroscopy Surgery: A technology where surgeries are structured to be minimally invasive is also known as a keyhole surgery. Arthroscopy surgical procedure is carried on, on a joint which can be wrist, elbow, ankle, knee or hip, where the diagnosis, examination and sometimes, the treatment of damage is performed using arthroscopic surgical procedure. The doctors look inside the joint, where the camera of the arthroscope projects an image on the screen diagnose the problem, and decide what type of surgery you need, if any. In a given situation, where a patient needs to go through a surgical intervention, the surgeon will cut small incisions which are called portals and will insert special but small tools into the bones through the incisions. These small tools help in anchoring the bone with stitches and also to cut, grasp and shave the bone as and when needed. Usually performed in the out-patients room, under local or general anaesthesia, the patient can go back home on the same day of surgery.
Joint Replacement: Arthroplasty or Joint replacement surgery is an approach or a surgical methodology where an arthritic or decayed or defective or broken joint surface is replaced with an artificial limb (hand or leg). If severe joint pain or dysfunction cannot be eased or reduced by less-invasive therapies, then Joint replacement becomes the only option or procedure for the treatment. The main and the most dominant causes which leads to the surgery involving joint replacement are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Replacement arthroplasty or joint replacement surgery is now becoming most common in hip and knee replacements, worldwide, which is on the rise year on year.
Knee Replacement: Knee replacement surgeries have been one of the most common arthroplasty procedures and are exponentially on the rise worldwide. Switzerland accounts for 260 knee replacements (per one lakh inhabitants) and is no. 1 among the top 30 countries across the world, and while only 300 knee replacements happened in India in 1994, the figure touched more than a lakh, in 2019. The tears in the ligament or the meniscus, or any defect in the cartilage causes crippling and paralyzing pain. This debilitating pain from osteoarthritis is much more common in the elderly. Severe deformity from long standing rheumatoid arthritis and trauma makes cases more complex with a potential higher risk. A total or a partial knee replacement surgery is performed on a patient depending on the severity of the condition affecting the knee. Metal or plastic components are shaped in a way which helps in the motion of the knee continuously, and they replace the diseased or damaged joint surfaces of the knee, enabling mobilization. This is a major invasive procedure and thus involves substantial postoperative pain. A Knee replacement surgery requires very intensive physical rehabilitation. The recovery period may be 12 weeks or longer and may involve the use of mobility aids.
Hip Replacement: Hip replacement surgery is called a hip prosthesis, where a doctor surgically removes the damaged hip joint with an artificial implant. These prosthetics are made from metal and plastic components. The procedure of Hip replacement is only decided by the surgeon as the last resort after every other treatment for restoration of the affected part of the hip fails to provide a solution and relief from the pain. This major invasive procedure is performed with an objective of mobilizing a patient into walking as a result of relieving a painful hip joint. Annually India accounts for about 70,000 hip replacement surgeries. Hip replacement procedure can be both a minimally invasive technique as well as a traditional surgery, depending on the size of the incision. In advanced Orthopaedic centre as Greenleaf, doctors follow the minimally invasive technique of having multiple but smaller incisions which benefit the patient in lessening blood loss, shorter stay at the hospital, speed in healing, ease of pain following surgery and reduce scar appearance.
Foot and ankle: one of the most common issues in this area is Achilles Tendinitis. This region also deals with diabetic and club foot, corns, hammer and claw toe, flexible flatfoot reconstruction, heel pain, ingrown toenail, fracture care, ankle arthroscopy and fusion surgery and bunionectomy among others.

Out-patient foot and ankle procedure depending on the extent of damage and injury, as also on-site physical therapy and minimal invasive procedures for fastest recovery and restoring life mobility in full motion, are performed. While a therapy and strengthening exercise are widely done for ankle sprain, rehab programs are a must for foot and ankle orthopaedic issues.
Spine: Spinal conditions are nerve wrecking and diagnosis of Spine conditions and symptoms of spine deformity, discomfort, mobility are critically important in the diagnostics. These can be caused by posture, lifestyle issues or involuntary trauma, accidents as well. The diagnostic procedures are angiogram or arteriogram where a dye is injected in the blood vessel and X Ray images are taken of the blood vessels. Computed Tomography, Discography, EMG, MRI and MGA (Magnetic Resonance Angiography are the other procedures for Spine related diagnostics. While non surgical procedures are Aquatic Therapy, Chiropractic Care, Exercise, Facet Blocks and Medication management to name a few while the common surgical and invasive methods are cervical and lumbar laminectomy, Balloon Kyphoplasty, Lumbar decompression, Lumbar Discectomy, DLIF and XLIF, Spinal chord Stimulator and Laser Spine Surgery.
