Меня зовут Бегенч я из Туркменистана. В июне 2016 у среднего сына была травма колена. Повредил во время тренировки по футболу. Он у меня планирует заниматься им профессионально. Наши Ашкабадские врачи предложили оперировать но после нее сын пог бы позабыть о спорте. В итоге решили ехать в Турцию. Ромой подсказали нам родственники, которые были уже у них на лечении. После предварительной операции врач тоже пришел к мнению проведения оперции но в отличии колег из Туркменистана он обещал что операция (ортроскопия ) никак не повлияет на его будующую карьеру. Слово врачи сдержали. правда понадобилась двух месячная физиотерапия но результатом мы однозначно довольны. Бегенч Атамурадов

Nas djecak Hamza je bio bezbrizan i kao vecina djece igrao je fudbal sa drugarima. Nazalost jedan dan je dosao sa povredom i tada je sve krenulo naopako. Vodili smo ga u bolnicu u Sarajevo i rekli su nam da oni ne smiju izvesti tu operaciju, na vrhuncu ocaja smo saznali za Romoy. Imam samo rijeci hvale za njih, ni jedne sekunde nas nisu ostavili same i pruzili su nam neogranicenu podrsku. Zahvaljujuci vama nas Hamza opet bezbrizno trckara sa drugarima. Hvala Vam !

What is Shoulder Resection Arthroplasty?

Shoulder resection arthroplasty is a surgical procedure performed to treat problems in the AC (acromioclavicular) joint of the shoulder resulting from osteoarthritis or traumatic injuries.

 

The acromion is the bone that makes up the upper part of the shoulder. The acromioclavicular joint connects the collarbone and the acromion. The very end of the collarbone is removed (approx. 1cm), leaving a space between the acromion bone and the collarbone, where the AC joint used to be. This space is replaced with scar tissue that allows movement and eliminates bone to bone rubbing.

 

This procedure can either be done as an "open surgery" or it can be done arthroscopically, in which case it would be considered a minimally invasive surgery. Arthroscopic surgeries are video-assisted procedures enabling optimum visualization, smaller incisions and less recovery time.

 

A Good Candidate for Shoulder Resection Arthroplasty

It is very likely that you have already been diagnosed by your doctor with one of the above ailments, in which case an MRI or X-Ray image was taken. If this is the case, be prepared to provide x-rays.

 

If you have not taken MRI or X-Ray images, then you can take them at one of the listed modern health care facilities upon arrival.

 

Shoulder Resection Arthroplasty Procedure

A resection arthroplasty involves the surgical removal of a small portion of the collarbone. This removal then leaves a space between the acromion and the cut end of the collarbone where the AC joint was. This joint replaces scar tissue, which allows movement.

 

This also prevents the bones rubbing against each other. The end result of the surgery is the flexible connection between the acromion and the collarbone.

 

The procedure is usually performed by making a small incision over the AC joint. Sometimes, the surgery can be executed arthroscopically, in which the surgeon uses an endoscope to look through a small hole into the shoulder joint.

 

The endoscope is an instrument consisting of a tube fitted with a light and a miniature video camera, which transmits an image of the joint interior to a television monitor. The surgeon proceeds to remove the segment of collarbone through a small incision.
