Soft Tissue

Soft tissue surgeries improve joint stability by repairing tendons, muscles, and ligaments. Some common soft tissue surgeries are muscle repairs, tendon transfers, ligament reconstructions, cartilage repairs, and fasciotomies. Most of the surgeries are performed through arthroscopy and do not generally require patient admission to the hospital. However, in some cases, the discharge of the patient is delayed due to complications, such as damage to nerves, blood vessels, tendons, and ligaments, and disruption of articular cartilage.

Our Offerings

  • Myositis Ossificans Release: Myositis ossificans is a condition characterized by the formation of bone tissues in places where they should not exist, most commonly in the soft tissues of muscles.The treatment options for this condition are rest, icing, stretching, using an elastic bandage to reduce swelling, and taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The doctor may recommend surgical intervention to remove the bony growth in severe cases.
  • Joint Arthrolysis: Arthrolysis is a surgical intervention used to treat conditions that cause joint stiffness and limited range of motion.This procedure involves releasing the soft tissues that interfere with the range of motion.
  • Joint Stiffness Correction: The options to correct the joint stiffness depend upon the cause of the stiffness. such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, bursitis, lupus, and bone cancer.
  • Open Wound Repairs: Open wounds involve injuries to the internal or external tissues of the body. Usually, the open wounds are minor and can be treated at home. Immediate medical care is required in cases of serious accidents, especially if the patient has significant bleeding or has been bleeding for more than 20 minutes. The types of open wounds include lacerations, abrasions, punctures, and avulsion.
  • Finger Contracture Release: Finger contracture occurs when the tissues present under the skin of the finger become thicker and less flexible. The surgeon, during contracture releasing procedure, removes the thickened tissues by making an incision.
  • Elbow Contracture Release: The surgical release of the elbow contracture aims to provide a functional range of motion to the elbow joint. The surgical techniques recommended include open-release or arthroscopic procedures.
  • Knee Contracture Release: Signs and symptoms of knee contractures include anterior knee pain, morning stiffness, and reduced range of motion.Treatments for knee contracture include both surgical and nonsurgical interventions.
  • Toe and Foot Soft Tissue Release: Rigid contracture deformity of the foot and ankle results in pain, gait instability, ulcerations, and bracing difficulties. The soft tissue release aims to improve ankle and foot alignment, reduce pain and the risk of falls, and avoid the occurrence of pressure ulcers.
  • Tendon Transfers: Tendons attach muscles to bones and allow the muscle to move the joints. In the hand and forearm, there are more than 40 muscles. Some of the muscles may not function properly after an injury. The non-working tendon is replaced with the working tendon through tendon transfer surgery.

Soft tissues involve the tissues of the body that are not hardened through the process of calcification or ossification. The function of the soft tissues is to support the bones and internal organs. The soft tissues include muscle, ligaments, tendons, fat, fasciae, lymph and blood vessels, fibrous tissue, and synovial membranes.

The soft tissue injury heals within six weeks without any problems. However, the symptoms may take a few months to subside completely. These symptoms are stiffness, pain or discomfort, swelling, and reduced strength. The healing may take more time in diabetic patients and smokers.
