Indian shoulder specialist at Nova Muscat
Muscat, March 10, 2013
An India-based super-specialist in shoulder surgery is now providing consultations at Nova Medical Center, a well known multi-specialty clinic at Al Khuwair.
Dr Mahesh Reddy, founder and director of Nova Specialty Surgery Bangalore is amongst the foremost specialists in the area of shoulder surgery in India, and is associated with Manipal Hospital, and Columbia Asia Hospital, Bangalore, as a senior consultant surgeon.
Having completed his MBBS and MS (Orthopaedics) in India, and Mch (Orthopaedics) from University of Liverpool, Dr Reddy has trained at NHS in UK for 5 years. He moved to Bangalore where he set up the ‘Shoulder Clinic’ at Manipal Hospital.
“Shoulder arthroscopy is a type of keyhole surgery used to look inside and treat damage to the shoulder caused by some types of injury, arthritis and certain other conditions. It is performed through small cuts in the skin, using a special telescope (arthroscope) attached to a video camera. Compared with open surgery, arthroscopy has a much faster recovery time,” said Dr Reddy.
“We explore all the segments of the shoulder joint which include bones, cartilage, ligaments and tendons. In case there are any remaining impaired tissues, we make one or two additional incisions to insert other tiny instruments through these. If there is any tear in your muscles, tendons or cartilage, it'll be repaired, setting on the course to functional recovery,” he added.
Honoured by the prestigious Royal College Of Surgeons of FRCS (Eng), Dr Reddy is also associated with two internationally renowned orthopaedic surgery research journals – Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (JBJS) and Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery as a reviewer. – TradeArabia News Service
