Rotator cuff (shoulder muscle) tear seen more commonly in 50-60 years age group, results in unbearable pain and inability to lift arm. The Double Row Repair technique with swivelock anchors, increases the area of contact of the torn rotator cuff (shoulder muscle) at the bone insertion site. Thereby increasing the repair strength of cuff tear.

Osteochondral Defects. Relook Chondrocyte Implantation Cartilage Repair

Dr. K. Raghuveer Reddy, Sai Institute of Sports Injury & Arthroscopy. The Relook after cartilage cell implantation in young arthritic knee is done for the sole purpose of evaluation. We have been performing these surgeries since 2009 and after two years we subjected these two patients to check the effectiveness. It looked like a normal cartilage with the patient scoring a 100 % and the MRI showing 95 %. It reaffirms that cartilage implantation is a therapeutic option. It instills confidence in patients and doctors. The surgery was performed in two stages; in the first stage a biopsy is taken of the patients own cartilage and the cells are then cultured in a laboratory for 6 weeks. In the second stage, a mini open surgery is performed wherein the cartilage is implanted. This surgery is suitable to patients till they are middle-aged. Those who are operated upon will return back to normal in a time span of 6 months. The surgery costs around two lakhs which includes both the stages of the operation. The expense is less compared to the costs in other country.
