Orthopedic reconstructive surgery uses specialized surgical techniques to address joint damage that develops due to degenerative disease. Dr. Ebraheim is specially trained in reconstructive procedures to restore mobility and range of motion in joints affected by conditions like:
In many cases, replacement surgery is necessary to replace part or all of the affected joint, especially in the knees, hips, and shoulders.
Reconstructive surgery is usually a treatment option when other therapies aren’t effective in relieving chronic pain or increasing your mobility.
Dr. Ebraheim performs a comprehensive evaluation of your overall health, reviewing your medical history and the severity of your condition to determine if reconstructive surgery is right for you.
He may also request imaging tests, like X-rays or a CT scan, to better understand the nature of your disease or injury.
If you can tolerate surgery, Dr. Ebraheim creates a custom surgical plan to address your condition. He offers both minimally invasive and open surgeries to ensure the best possible outcome for your long-term health.
The goal of reconstructive surgery is to replace a portion or all of the damaged joint with artificial medical devices designed to function like your natural joint.
In many cases, Dr. Ebraheim can remove damaged joints through very small incisions using minimally invasive techniques and specialized surgical instruments. This type of procedure causes less trauma to the body, ensuring you recover faster and have a shorter stay in the hospital.
When minimally invasive surgery isn’t possible, Dr. Ebraheim can perform traditional open surgery, focusing on restoring your joint health for the long-term. This type of surgery may require a longer recovery period to ensure your joint and incisions heal properly.
Following either type of surgery, you can expect to undergo physical therapy to rebuild strength in the muscles that support your joint. Dr. Ebraheim works closely with you after surgery to ensure you’re healing properly and regaining normal function in your joint.
