OCD fixation, or osteochondritis dissecans fixation, is a surgical procedure used to treat a condition where a piece of bone and cartilage has become loose in a joint, typically the knee, elbow or ankle. This can cause pain, swelling, and difficulty with movement. The aim of OCD fixation surgery is to reattach the loose fragment to the underlying bone and promote the growth of new, healthy cartilage. Arthroscopic OCD fixation is a minimally invasive technique that uses small incisions and a tiny camera to guide the surgeon’s instruments. This can help to reduce the risk of complications and speed up recovery time compared to traditional open surgery. After the surgery, rehabilitation is typically required to help regain strength and mobility in the affected joint.
Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) is a condition where a piece of bone and cartilage in a joint loses its blood supply and begins to die, leading to pain, inflammation, and eventually joint damage. Arthroscopic OCD fixation is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves using small incisions and a camera to remove the dead bone and cartilage fragments and replace them with healthy cartilage tissue. The goal of the surgery is to relieve pain, restore function, and prevent further joint damage. Rehabilitation after the surgery plays a crucial role in achieving these goals.
