Sometimes called “wear-and-tear” arthritis, osteoarthritis is a common condition that many people develop after their fifties. In 2011, more than 28 million people in the United States were estimated to have osteoarthritis. It can occur in any joint in the body, but most often develops in weight-bearing joints, such as the hip. Osteoarthritis of the hip causes pain and stiffness. It can make it hard to do everyday activities like bending over to tie a shoe, rising from a chair, or taking a short walk. Because osteoarthritis gradually worsens over time, the sooner you start treatment, the more likely it is that you can lessen its impact on your life. Although there is no cure for osteoarthritis, there are many treatment options to help you manage pain and stay active. If surgery is needed, Dr. Dua will perform the procedure using arthroscopic techniques, getting you back to your active life style much faster.
Based upon the condition of your hip joint, you and your doctor have several options from which to choose for Manchester hip surgery. For total hip replacement, your doctor will remove both the damaged acetabulum and femoral head, and then position new metal, plastic or ceramic joint surfaces to restore the function of your hip. To discuss both non-surgical and surgical options, come in for an appointment today.

If you are looking for a Manchester orthopedic surgeon to treat your knee injury, you have come to the right place. Using the most advanced surgical procedures to treat knee injuries, Dr. Dua excels in arthroscopy and robotic-assisted procedures. Unlike traditional surgery where large incisions are made, arthroscopy uses very small incisions, about the size of a grain of rice. An endoscope, a small camera with a light at the end of it, is placed through the incisions into the knee joint. The images are relayed back to a large screen where the doctor can find and repair the joint damage. Many of these procedures can be performed as an outpatient and healing is much faster that traditional surgery. Robotic-assisted technology is used to enable surgeons to plan partial knee or total hip replacement procedures by using three-dimensional computer imaging based on a CT scan. This allows orthopedic surgeons to determine optimal implant size, position, and alignment for each individual patient, and to map out accurately the areas of bone they want to remove. During surgery, the robotic arm system provides visual, auditory, and tactile control to help assure that surgeons cut away only the damaged bone. Recovery time is relatively fast and post-op discomfort is minimal.
Whatever your orthopedic needs are, if you need a Manchester orthopedic surgeon with craftsmanship and tremendous skills, look no further. Dr. Vipul Dua is board certified and here to help you resume an active lifestyle.
