Depends on case
Orthopedic surgery is the branch of medicine which deals with the conditions involving the musculoskeletal system, while plastic surgery concentrates on aesthetics, form, and soft tissue reconstruction. The merger of both these specialties is known as “orthoplastic surgery,” and it applies the principles and practices of both orthopedics and plastic surgery to treat medical issues.
At Cocoona, we diagnose and offer surgical as well as non-surgical treatments for musculoskeletal conditions. Our orthopedic surgeons have performed thousands of surgeries and offer comprehensive care in all areas of orthopedics like, sports injuries, ankle and foot injuries, spine surgery, hand and joint injuries, etc. We address all types of musculoskeletal ailments like, arthritis, congenital deformities and much more with surgical as well as non surgical treatments. For bones we offer autograft (bone grafting), patellectomy, osteotomy, laminectomy, etc.
Cocoona is a one-of-its-kind Orthoplastic surgery clinic in the UAE. We have two core priorities – restoration of basic functionality, followed by long-term rehabilitation.
Our orthopedic surgeons work very closely with our plastic surgeons to combines the expertise of the two practices into one, which leads to a complete treatment. The orthopedic surgeon deals with the bone and skeletal aspects, whereas the plastic surgeon deals with muscles, nerves and skin. Our patients can be assured they are in safest hands and we will do all we can to minimize the scarring and physical deformities.
