Bone Deformity Correction Surgery in Kondapur, Hyderabad

Correction of deformities may be required in a situation wherein a bone or more than one bone is disorganized, infected, or unstable. This can be done through a surgical procedure or a modifying process at Apollo Kondapur. The bone is placed at the right place, or is attached to the right part of the body or maybe even replaced by a rod or other available tools. The correction of deformity may be required at any part of the body, the most common being the hands and legs.

How is the Procedure of Correction of Deformities Performed?

There are mainly two types of procedures available for correcting deformities. First, acute correction can be used when the deformity requires surgery for correction. An incision or cut is made around the laboured area. The deformed bone is placed correctly and if needed, a rod or plate made out of metal can be placed for proper positioning of the bone and support.

This procedure is generally performed under general anaesthesia. The second method that can be used to correct the deformities is a gradual correction. Herein, either one bone at a time or just some selective bones are treated at once. This is a slow procedure that may take a longer duration for correction of deformities than the acute method of correction.

What are the Benefits of Correction of Deformities?

There can be various conditions of deformities that can take place in a body. These deformities can be corrected using various techniques and procedures suitable for a particular condition. The correction of deformities has several benefits out of which a few can be mentioned as follows:

  • Alignment of misaligned or twisted bones.
  • Proper function of the afflicted area.
  • The overall activity of the body is enhanced.

What are the Side Effects of Correction of Deformities?
