Conditions Treated

Vivek Sharma MD uses the latest medical technology with a state of the art medical facility to provide his patients with the best possible outcome. Dr. Sharma renders the most comprehensive care for all conditions including that of the shoulder, hip, and knee and sports injuries. Click on the below mentioned tabs to know more about the conditions that he treats.

Hip

The hip joint is the largest weight-bearing joint in the human body. It is also referred to as a ball and socket joint and is surrounded by muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The thigh bone or femur and the pelvis join to form the hip joint. Any injury or disease of the hip will adversely affect the joint's range of motion and ability to bear weight.

  • Hip Arthritis
  • Labral Tear
  • Trochanter Bursitis
  • Avascular Necrosis
  • Inflamed Synovium

Shoulder

The shoulder joint is the most flexible and complex joint of the body enabling a wide range of movements to the upper extremities. The spherical head of the long bone of the arm fits loosely into the socket of the glenoid cavity of the shoulder bone to form a ball and socket joint. The stability and strength of the shoulder is provided by the supporting ligaments and tendons of the joint.

  • Shoulder Arthritis
  • Rotator Cuff Injury
  • Shoulder Bursitis
  • Glenoid Labrum Tear
  • Inflamed Synovial Membrane

Knee

The knee joint is one of the most complex joints of the body. The lower end of the thighbone (femur) meets the upper end of the shinbone (tibia) at the knee joint. A small bone called the patella (kneecap) rests on a groove on the front side of the femoral end. A bone of the lower leg (fibula) forms a joint with the shinbone. To allow smooth and painless motion of the knee joint, articular surfaces of these bones are covered with a shiny white slippery articular cartilage.

  • Knee Arthritis
  • Ligament Tear
  • Meniscal Tear
  • Patellar Tendinitis
  • Patellofemoral Instability

Sports Injuries

Sports injuries occur when playing indoor or outdoor sports or while exercising. They can result from accidents, inadequate training, improper use of protective devices, or insufficient stretching or warm-up exercises. The most common sports injuries are -

  • Muscle Contusion & Strain
  • Cartilage Damage
  • Tendinopathy
  • Bone Repair
