Failed ACL reconstruction India

This is the x-ray of a young Omani citizen with two failed ACL reconstructions done elsewhere in India and Oman.  It shows degenerative changes in the inner half. ACL injuries are the commonest knee injury  and are a leading cause of acquired mechanical osteo-arthritis in adults.
He has come to me for an opinion since he has constant pain. I have advised him stem cell treatment to slow down the progress of the disease and postpone a knee replacement. This is the aim of joint preservation surgery in India.

Acetabular fractures India Joint preservation surgery Dr.A.K.Venkatachalam

Acatabular fractures India affect many young and old people. The acetabulum is the socket of the hip joint, the first major joint of the lower limbs. It occurs most commonly in road traffic accidents, fall from heights and domestic accidents. The young and middle aged are commonly affected. Except in the rarest incidence, these fractures often need open reduction and internal fixation to achieve pain free mobility. I have acquired experience in treating these fractures in India and Oman. I present a power point presentation of some cases treated by me.
