Shoulder replacement is a last resort treatment for severely damaged shoulder joint. Physiologically, joint surface is lined with smooth and strong cartilage which allows movements through a wide range of motion. However, due to osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or severe joint trauma, lining cartilage becomes thin and rough. As a result, it is painful to move and it limits and disturbs daily activities. In such case shoulder replacement is an option. Read more about shoulder replacement
ACL is usually damaged because of quick turns and sharp movements during sports which require sudden moving out of one place to another, and sudden stopping (e.g. basketball, gymnastics, football, skiing). If a damaged ligament is not treated it can lead to long-term pain and instability of the knee. When ACL ligament is damaged a person usually has trouble putting pressure on the knee, walking, and playing sports. Read more about ACL reconstruction
Even though some rotator cuff tears may be treated with conservative methods, there are cases that require surgical intervention. There are three main ways to surgically treat a rotator cuff tear, and the choice of the best method depends on various factors, including the severity of the tear and the unique elements of your shoulder anatomy. Repairing the rotator cuff involves using suture anchors (small rivets), which are used to attach the tendon to the bone. Read more about rotatory cuff repair
Knee arthroscopy is a surgical technique that allows a surgeon to view the inside of the knee and treat the damaged ligaments of the knee joint.

Untreated hallux valgus causes inflammation, pain, and misalignment of the toes. The symptoms often worsen when wearing uncomfortable shoes. Since the structure of the bones and soft tissue changes, bunions may also be responsible for a decreased sensation around the bunion. Fortunately, it is possible to treat hallux valgus through surgery, and thus, regain pain-free and aesthetic feet. The surgery helps to straighten the big toe, correct claw toes, and remove the ball of the foot (if one is present). Read more about Hallux Valgus surgery
Articular cartilage can be imagined as a lubricated cushion that covers the ends of the joint-forming bones. It reduces friction and provides a smooth surface for the joint as it bends and transmits weight. When articular cartilage is damaged, one will experience stiffness, pain, inflammation, and reduced range of motion. If left untreated the breakdown of the cartilage will get increasingly worse, eventually leading to osteoarthritis. In some cases the pieces of detached cartilage may get stuck in the joint and become locked leaving the joint motionless for some time. Read more about articulate cartilage repair
