Dr. Santpure  and his team, have performed 5000 major orthopaedic surgeries which includes 1000 cases of joint replacement & 1000 cases of ilizarov/deformity correction/limb lengthening. He is one of the few surgeons in India performing Knee, Hip, Shoulder, & Elbow Replacement as well as Ilizarov Surgery. The specialties are
 

  • TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT: Knee replacement surgery also known as Knee Arthroplasty can help relieve pain and restore function in severely diseased knee joints. During knee replacement, a surgeon cuts away damaged bone and cartilage from your thighbone, shinbone and kneecap and replaces it with an artificial joint made of metal alloys, high-grade plastics and polymers.
  • TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT: Hip replacement surgery is for people with severe hip damage. When you have a hip replacement, the hip surgeon removes damaged cartilage and bone from your hip joint and replaces them with new, man-made parts. This can relieve pain, reduce hip stiffness and help your hip joint work well, and improve your walking and other movements. Your doctor may recommend it if you have hip problems and pain, and physical therapy, medicines and exercise don't help.
  • SURFACE HIP REPLACEMENT: Surface replacement of the hip is an alternative to traditional hip replacement for the treatment of conditions such as osteoarthritis, avascular necrosis, and post-traumatic arthritis. It provides a bone-conserving artificial hip joint, and is designed to preserve bone for younger, active patients.
  • REVISION JOINT REPLACEMENT
  • COMPUTER AIDED ORTHOPAEDIC SURGERIES
  • LIMB LENGTHENING & RECONSTRUCTION: Limb lengthening is distraction ostegenesis, also called callus distraction, a surgical process used for reconstruction of skeletal deformities, and for lengthening bones. Limb lengthening is a procedure in which a bone segment is surgically cut and a distraction device is used to slowly pull the two ends apart. After the desired limb extension has been achieved the bone consolidates until the lengthened gap has completely calcified.
  • ILIZAROV SURGERY: The Ilizarov apparatus is named after the orthopedic surgeon Gavriil Abramovich Ilizarov, who pioneered the technique. It is used in surgical procedures to lengthen or reshape limb bones; to treat complex and/or open bone fractures; and in cases of infected non-unions of bones that are not amenable with other techniques.
  • ADULT & PAEDIATRIC DEFORMITY CORRECTION: Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip, Knock Knees & Bow Legs, Club Foot, Slipped Upper Femoral Epiphysis, Scoliosis, Flat Foot, Irritable Hip, Apophysitis, Intoe Gait, Calcaneovalgus Foot, Perthes Disease, Growing Pains
  • COMPLEX TRAUMA:Severe fractures of the upper & lower extremities, Spinal fractures, Complex Femoral Fractures, Fractures in children, adults, and the elderly, Complex Periarticular Injuries, Pelvic and Acetabular Fractures, Arthroscopy, Osteoporosis Care

Dr. S. V. Santpure | Consultant Joint Replacement Surgeon Treatments Offered

A total knee replacement replaces your diseased knee joint and eliminates the damaged bearing surfaces that are causing you pain. The design of the implant offers you renewed stability and minimizes the wear process. Overall there are three benefits from your knee replacement:

Elimination of pain.
Improved motion.
Minimum wear and tear

KNEE REPLACEMENT COMPONENTS
The lower part of the replacement knee joint is comprised of a flat metal plate and stem that your surgeon will implant in the tibial bone, as shown in the movie above. This tibial tray can be either cobalt chrome alloy or titanium alloy. It can be fixed by either cement or bone “ingrowth”. Next, a polyethylene insert is clipped into the tibial tray to serve as the new knee bearing surface. The upper part of the replacement knee joint consists of a contoured metal shield that fits around the lower end of the thigh bone (femur). The inner surface can be fixed to the cut bone surfaces by the surgeon’s choice of bone ingrowth or bone cement. The outer surface of the contoured metal shield is shaped to allow the knee cap (patella) to slide up and down in its groove. The surgeon may choose to retain the natural knee cap or re-surface it. In this case a polyethylene button will be cemented in place.

TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT IMPLANTS
A diagnosis of advanced osteoarthritis of the knee will indicate the need for total replacement of the knee joint. Based upon your age and lifestyle, there are several design options to choose from that will help you return to an active enjoyable life.

 

A total hip replacement is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased cartilage and bone of the hip joint is surgically replaced with artificial materials. The normal hip joint is a ball and socket joint. The socket is a "cup-shaped" bone of the pelvis called the acetabulum. The ball is the head of the thigh bone (femur). Total hip joint replacement involves surgical removal of the diseased ball and socket and replacing them with a metal ball and stem inserted into the femur bone and an artificial plastic cup socket. The metallic artificial ball and stem are referred to as the "prosthesis." Upon inserting the prosthesis into the central core of the femur, it is fixed with a bony cement called methylmethacrylate. Alternatively, a "cementless" prosthesis is used which has microscopic pores that allow bony ingrowth from the normal femur into the prosthesis stem. This "cementless" hip is felt to have a longer duration and is considered especially for younger patients.

WHO IS THE CANDIDATE FOR TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT?
Total hip replacements are performed most commonly because of progressively severe arthritis in the hip joint. The most common type of arthritis leading to total hip replacement is degenerative arthritis (osteoarthritis) of the hip joint. This type of arthritis is generally seen with aging, congenital abnormality of the hip joint, or prior trauma to the hip joint. Other conditions leading to total hip replacement include bony fractures of the hip joint, rheumatoid arthritis, and death (aseptic necrosis) of the hip bone. Hip bone necrosis can be caused by fracture of the hip, drugs (such as alcohol or prednisone and prednisolone), diseases (such as systemic lupus erythematosus), and conditions (such as kidney transplantation).

The progressively intense chronic pain together with impairment of daily function including walking, climbing stairs, and even arising from a sitting position, eventually become reasons to consider a total hip replacement. Because replaced hip joints can fail with time, whether and when to perform total hip replacement are not easy decisions, especially in younger patients. Replacement is generally considered after pain becomes so severe that it impedes normal function despite use of anti-inflammatory and/or pain medications. A total hip joint replacement is an elective procedure, which means that it is an option selected among other alternatives. It is a decision which is made with an understanding of the potential risks and benefits. A thorough understanding of both the procedure and anticipated outcome is an important part of the decision-making process

 

External Limb
Limb lengthening is distraction ostegenesis, also called callus distraction, a surgical process used for reconstruction of skeletal deformities, and for lengthening bones. Limb lengthening is a procedure in which a bone segment is surgically cut and a distraction device is used to slowly pull the two ends apart. After the desired limb extension has been achieved the bone consolidates until the lengthened gap has completely calcified.

 

A Bow leg (genu varum) is a condition of legs when knees are wide apart when a person stands with the feet and ankles together. Initially, due to folded position in the uterus infants are born bowlegged. Bow legs begin to straighten when the child starts to walk. At this time there is a pressure and weight legs begin to bear. The age of the child at this period is 12.5 to 18.5 months old.

When the child is approximately 3 years old, the normal appearance of legs should be visible. This way a child should stand with the ankles together and the knees just touch to reflect normal position. If the situation with bow legs remains after this period, the child can be called bow legged.

 

 

In knock knees (genu valgum or genu valgus), the lower legs are at an outward angle, such that when the knees are touching and the ankles are separated. Most children develop a slight knock-kneed stance by the time they are 2 or 3 years old. This is part of normal development and often persists through age 5 or 6, at which time the legs begin to straighten fully. By puberty, most children can stand with the knees and ankles touching (without forcing the position). Knock knees can also develop as a result of disease processes. If this condition is not fixed in childhood, it may continue through to adulthood and begin to cause a problem for the adult affected. Adults can also have knocked knees due to arthritis or a severe injury to the knee.

Lumbar Fusion & Disk Replacement Surgeries
 A lumbar disc replacement is emerging as a new treatment option for some types of low back pain. Spinal disc replacement surgery has recently been FDA approved in the United States, and a growing amount of research is being performed throughout the world, mostly in Europe, on this new procedure. Lumbar disc replacement may soon be a standard treatment for surgery on the spine and for back pain treatment.

Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative disc disease is one type of back pain that is caused by wearing away of the cushion that rests between the vertebrae of our spine. The spinal column is made of stacked bones called vertebrae. These bones are separated by a cushion at each level called a spinal disc. The disc is a tough but pliable tissue that helps maintain the position of the spine, but also allows motion between the vertebrae. With this design we have the stability to stand upright, but also the flexibility to bend and twist. Unfortunately, these discs can cause problems as they wear away. As the disc ages, it becomes more brittle and less flexible. The disc also becomes more prone to injury and degradation. Exactly what causes pain with lumbar disc degeneration is debatable, but we do know that some patients with worn out discs have typical symptoms of low back pain.

Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip

Developmental dysplasia (dislocation) of the hip (DDH) is an abnormal formation of the hip joint in which the ball on top of the thighbone (femur) is not held firmly in the socket. In some instances, the ligaments of the hip joint may be loose and stretched. The condition is found in babies or young children.

The degree of hip looseness, or instability, varies in DDH. In some children, the thighbone is simply loose in the socket at birth. In other children, the bone is completely out of the socket. In still other children, the looseness worsens as the child grows and becomes more active.

Pediatricians screen for DDH at a newborn's first examination and at every well-baby checkup thereafter. When the condition is detected at birth, it can usually be corrected. But if the hip is not dislocated at birth, the condition may not be noticed until the child begins walking. At this time, treatment is more complicated and uncertain.

Left untreated, DDH can lead to pain and osteoarthritis by early adulthood. It may produce a difference in leg length or a "duck-like" gait and decreased agility. If treated successfully (and the earlier the better), children regain normal hip joint function. However, even with appropriate treatment, especially in children 2 years or older, hip deformity and osteoarthritis may develop later in life.

Severe fractures of the upper & lower extremities

A fracture is defined as a break in the bone.

Types of Fractures

  • Green stick fracture: It is the fracture in the young bone of children where the break is incomplete, leaving one cortex intact.
  •  Closed fracture: A closed fracture is one where the fracture hematoma does not communicate with the outside.
  • Open fracture: (Compound fracture) this is one where the fracture hematoma communicates with the outside through an open wound. A Compound fracture is a serious injury as infection may gain entrance into the body through the wound and thereby endanger the limb or even life.
  • Pathological fracture: It is a fracture occurring after a trivial violence in a bone weakened by some pathological lesion. This lesion may be a localized one, like a secondary malignant deposit or a generalized disorder like hyperparathyroidism or senile osteoporosis.
  • Stress fracture: It is a fracture occurring at a site in the bone subject to repeated minor stresses over a period of time.
  • Birth fracture: It is a fracture in the new born children due to child due to injury during delivery.
     

Spinal fractures

Spinal injuries can range from relatively mild ligament and muscle strains (such as whiplash), to fractures and dislocations of the bony vertebrae (vertebrae fractures), to debilitating spinal cord injuries. Spinal fractures and dislocations can pinch, compress, and even tear the spinal cord. Treatment of spinal fractures depends on the type of fracture and the degree of instability.

Fractures can occur anywhere along the spine. Five to ten percent occur in the neck (cervical fractures) region. Sixty four percent occur in the lower back (lumbar fractures) region.

Classification of Fractures

There are numerous classifications for fractures. In general, spine fractures fall into three categories:

  • Fractures: when more pressure is put on a bone than it can stand, it will break. The most common type of spine fracture is a vertebral body compression fracture. Sudden downward force shatters and collapses the body of the vertebrae. If the force is great enough, it may send bone fragments into the spinal canal, called a burst fracture. People affected by osteoporosis, tumors, and certain forms of cancer that weaken bone are prone to vertebral compression fractures (VCF). The fracture appears as a wedge-shaped collapse of the vertebra. Multiple VCFs can cause a forward hunch of the spine called kyphosis.

 

  • Dislocations: when the ligaments and/or discs connecting two vertebrae together are stretched or torn, the bones may come out of alignment. For example, when the rapid forward motion of the upper body against a seat belt pulls apart the vertebra and stretches the ligaments. A dislocated vertebra can cause instability and spinal cord compression. They usually require stabilization surgery or a brace.
  • Fracture-dislocations: occur when bone is broken and the ligaments are torn. These fractures are usually unstable, tend to be very debilitating, and are often surgically repaired.

 

Complex Femoral Fractures

The femur is one of the largest and strongest bones in the body. The femur is the thigh bone which extends from the hip joint down to the knee joint. Because the femur is such a strong bone, it can take tremendous force to cause a fracture of the femur.

Femoral stress fracture

A femur stress fracture is the result of cyclic overloading of the bone or a dramatic increase in the muscular forces across their insertion, causing microfracture. These repetitive stresses overcome the ability of the bone to heal the microtrauma. The area most susceptible to stress fracture is the medial junction of the proximal and middle third of the femur, which occurs as a result of the compression forces on the medial femur.
Stress fractures can also occur on the lateral aspect of the femoral neck in areas of distraction and are less likely to heal non-operatively than compression-side stress fractures. Stress fractures occur most often in repetitive overload sports such as in runners and in baseball and basketball players.

 

Ilizarov Technique and Apparatus

The Ilizarov apparatus is named after the orthopedic surgeon Gavriil Abramovich Ilizarov, who pioneered the technique. It is used in surgical procedures to lengthen or reshape limb bones; to treat complex and/or open bone fractures; and in cases of infected non-unions of bones that are not amenable with other techniques.

The Ilizarov Method of Treatment

The Ilizarov Apparatus is a set of external fixators comprising rings, rods and Kirschner's wires. It is different from the conventional external fixators in that it encases the limb as a cylinder-the limb itself being shaped like one and it uses wires instead of pins to fix the bone to the rings.

The Ilizarov Method uses Ilizarov's Principle of Distraction Osteogenesis. This refers to the induction of new bone between bone surfaces that are pulled apart in a gradual, controlled manner. The distraction initially gives rise to Neovascularisation, which is what actually stimulates new bone formation. In addition, there is simultaneous histogenesis of muscles, nerves and skin; in bone diseases (osteomyelitis, fibrous dysplasia, pseudo-arthrosis) this new bone replaces pathological bone with normal bone. This is a revolutionary concept; diseases for which earlier there was no treatment is now successfully treated using the Ilizarov Technique.

Aurangabad, India Destination Overview

Aurangabad is a city in the Aurangabad district of Maharashtra, India. Aurangabad (meaning "Built by the Throne") is named after the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. It is commonly used as a base for a visit to the World Heritage Sites of Ajanta and Ellora which is seeped in medieval history. The city is a tourist destination, surrounded by many historical places and monuments, including the Ajanta Caves and Ellora Caves, which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, as well as Bibi Ka Maqbara. The administrative headquarters of the Aurangabad Division or Marathwada region, Aurangabad is said to be a City of Gates and the strong presence of these can be felt as one drives through the city. Recently, Aurangabad has been declared as Tourism Capital of Maharashtra. It is also one of the fastest growing cities in the world. Aurangabad has now become a thriving industrial centre with many fine academic institutions.

Bibi Ka Maqbara: Situated about 3 km from the city is Bibi Ka Maqbara, the burial place of Aurangzeb's wife, Rabia-ud-Durrani. It is an imitation of the Taj at Agra and due to its similar design, it is popularly known as the Mini Taj of the Deccan. The Maqbara stands in the middle of a spacious and formally planned Mughal garden with axial ponds, fountains, water channels, broad pathways and pavilions. Behind the mausoleum is located a small archaeological museum.
 

Panchakki (water mill): Is a 17th century water mill situated at a distance of 1 km from the city. An intriguing water mill, the Panchakki is famous for its underground water channel, which traverses more than 8 km. to its source away in the mountains. The channel culminates in a mesmerizing 'artificial' waterfall that powers the mill. The beauty of the mosque housed in the inner enclosure is enhanced by a series of 'dancing' water fountains.
 

Gates in Aurangabad: One of the things that makes Aurangabad stand out from the several other medieval cities in India are its 52 'gates' each of which have a local history or had individuals linked with them.

 

Aurangabad Caves: Situated at a distance of 5 km (3 mi), nestled amidst the hills are 12 Buddhist caves probably dating back to 3 A.D. Of particular interest are the Tantric influences evident in the iconography and architectural designs of the caves. One is also treated to a panoramic view of the city as well as the imposing Maqbara from this point.
 

Quila-E-Ark: In 1692, Aurangzeb ordered a palace to be built and named it as the Killa Arrak. The space enclosed by the Killa Arrak or citadel covered nearly the whole ground between the Mecca and Delhi gates of the city. It had four or five gateways and a nagarkhana for the musicians. The walls were battle-mented and loop-holed and had semi-circular towers at the angles, on which guns were once mounted.
 

Kali Masjid, Jumma Masjid: Among the mosques, the Jumma masjid and the Kali masjid built by Malik Ambar, and the Shah Ganj mosque are the most conspicuous. Malik Ambar is said to have built seven mosques which go by the general name of Kali masjid. The Kali masjid is in Juna Bazar area and was erected in 1600 A. D.
 

Shahganj Masjid: Occupying the great market square of Aurangabad is the large Shah Ganj mosque, one of the finest edifices of its class to be found in any put of India. It was built in about 1720 A.D.

 

Chowk Masjid: In 1655 was built the Chauk Masjid by Shayista Khan, the maternal uncle of Aurangzeb. Its front has five pointed arches, and is two arches in depth. These are connected with one another by eight pillars and corresponding pilasters, and support five domes. The central dome, with a metallic spire is lofty, while the others are concealed in the roof. The corners are decorated with minarets.
 

Salim Ali Lake and Bird Sanctuary: Salim Ali Sarovar (lake) popularly known as Salim Ali Talab is located near Delhi Gate, opposite Himayat Bagh, Aurangabad. It is located in the northern part of the city. During the Mughal period it was known as Khiziri Talab. It has been renamed after the great ornithologist and naturalist Salim Ali. It also has a bird Sanctuary and a garden maintained by the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation.
