Deformity Correction surgeries offered at Vimhans Nayati

Bone and joint deformities are not only painful but these can also limit your day to day activities by restricting mobility and curtailing the range of motion. Deformity correction surgery can be performed in two ways depending upon the adversity of the patient's condition – Acute correction and gradual correction.

  • Acute deformity correction

Acute correction involves the correction of all the deformities at once. The surgery is carried out by creating two separate bones segments by making a cut across the affected bone. This procedure is commonly referred to as osteotomy. The bone is then positioned in the right manner and stabilized with the help of internal devices like rods and metal plates. The surgery may be accompanied by a soft tissue procedure. The internal device can be surgically removed after sometime when the bone has healed. At Vimhans Nayati, we also offer procedures like fixator assisted nailing or fixator assisted plating, which involves the use of temporary external fixators to align the bone while the internal devices are being placed.

  • Gradual deformity correction

Unlike acute correction, gradual correction involves two or more procedures that are carried out over the span of several weeks or months. It involves the use of an external fixator to align the affected bone. Osteotomy is performed to separate the bone segments and the patient is given special guidelines and instructions for how to adjust the fixators. The process is commonly known as distraction and involves the gradual separation in straightening of the bone segments. While these two bone segments are gradually pulled apart, a new bone starts to form in between. This bone is commonly referred to as the regenerate bone. This phase is known as the distraction phase and is followed by a consolidation phase which involves the hardening of the regenerate bone. The regenerate bone may be cut again to allow lengthening.
