If you are battling arthritis or musculoskeletal pain, our Orthopaedic Surgeons at BMI Carrick Glen Hospital will build a tailored treatment plan to soothe and manage your symptoms.

At BMI Carrick Glen Hospital, we provide a broad scope of orthopaedic procedures to alleviate your symptoms and help you get back to doing the things you love. These include:

Hip replacement surgery

If you have experienced a hip fracture (a crack or break in your femur or thighbone) or your joint has become damaged due to arthritis, you could be advised hip replacement surgery. Your hip replacement operation will involve removing and replacing the ball (top part of your femur) with a prosthesis. Sometimes, your socket might also be replaced with a prosthesis. This is known as total hip replacement surgery.

Knee replacement surgery (partial and full)

Your Orthopaedic Surgeon at BMI Carrick Glen Hospital could recommend knee replacement surgery to treat a knee injury or arthritis. Arthritis, such as osteoarthritis, can cause the cartilage cushioning your joint or joints to break down, causing pain and stiffness. A knee replacement operation can replace the damaged parts of your bones induced by arthritis or injury with a prosthesis.

Spinal surgery

You could be recommended surgery to treat a spinal injury, or a condition such as spinal stenosis (a narrowing of your spinal column which causes your nerves to become compressed) or a slipped disc (where the tissue inside one of your spinal discs bulges outwards, putting pressure on your surrounding nerves). Spinal surgery can also be used to treat sciatica, which can cause pain across your buttocks, legs and toes.

Shoulder replacement surgery

Shoulder replacement surgery involves removing and replacing the damaged areas of your joint with a prosthesis. You might have partial shoulder replacement surgery, where only the head of your humerus (upper arm bone) is replaced, or total shoulder replacement surgery, when your humerus and socket are removed and replaced. The type of shoulder replacement surgery you have will depend on your diagnosis and the condition of your shoulder.

Hand and wrist surgery

At BMI Carrick Glen Hospital, we offer a broad range of hand and wrist surgeries, suitable for all common conditions. These include wrist surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome (a condition where your medial nerve becomes compressed at wrist), and hand surgery to treat arthritis in your fingers or thumbs. Hand or wrist surgery can relieve symptoms such as pain, swelling and numbness.

Foot surgery for toe problems

Foot surgery can be used to treat bunions (bony growths on the side of your feet) or arthritis in your feet. Toe surgery can also help treat hallux rigidus (arthritis in your big toe) and correct deformities such as hammer toe, where your small toes bend upwards.

Ankle arthroscopy

Ankle surgery at BMI Carrick Glen Hospital could involve an arthroscopy (a keyhole operation) that uses a few small incisions around your ankle to gain access to the joint and remove loose cartilage or bone inside or repair damaged ligaments. Your ankle arthroscopy can alleviate symptoms such as pain or stiffness in your ankle, helping you walk with ease.
