Procedures

Here is a list of some of the common procedures and conditions that Dr Simon Hutabarat manages.

Hand & Wrist Procedures

1500Carpal Tunnel Release
Carpal Tunnel Release
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm. The condition occurs when one of the major nerves to the hand — the median nerve — is squeezed or compressed as it travels through the wrist.

1502Duypuytren’s Contracture
Duypuytren’s Contracture
Dupuytren's contracture is a condition that affects the fibrous layer of tissue that lies underneath the skin in the palm and fingers. In patients with Dupuytren's, this tissue, known as fascia, thickens and then tightens over time. This causes the fingers to be pulled inward, towards the palm.

1504Trigger Finger/Thumb and other Tendon Releases
Trigger Finger/Thumb and other Tendon Releases
Tendons to the fingers and thumb can sometimes get caught in the pulleys they pass through on the way to their insertion site. The finger or thumb can get stuck in a flexed (trigger-like) position. It can be painful when the swollen tendon clicks as it passes through the pulley. Surgical treatment involves a simple release of the pulley. This enables the swollen section of tendon to pass unimpeded.

1506Wrist Arthroscopy
Wrist Arthroscopy
Wrist arthroscopy involves keyhole surgery of the wrist. A fibreoptic telescope attached to a camera is used to visualize inside the wrist joint. A shaver and other tools can be used through another portal for various procedures.

Shoulder Procedures

1491Shoulder Replacement
Shoulder Replacement
Shoulder replacements are used for a number of shoulder conditions including: arthritis, fractures and massive irrepairable rotator cuff tears. There are several types of arthritis including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and rotator cuff arthropathy. Two common forms of shoulder replacement are the anatomic total shoulder replacement (aTSA) and the reverse total shoulder replacement (rTSA).

1493Shoulder Arthroscopy
Shoulder Arthroscopy
Shoulder arthroscopy involves the use of small incisions and special tools to treat shoulder conditions in a minimally invasive way. Conditions that may benefit from this kind of treatment include: shoulder dislocations, impingement and rotator cuff conditions.

1495Rotator Cuff Disease
Rotator Cuff Disease
A rotator cuff tear is a common cause of pain and disability among adults. Every consulting day Dr Hutabarat will see many patients about their rotator cuff. A torn rotator cuff weakens your shoulder. Activities like combing your hair or getting dressed, can become painful and difficult to do.

Hip Procedures

1486Hip Arthroscopy
Hip Arthroscopy
Similar to a knee arthroscopy, the hip arthroscopy uses small incisions and special tools to treat certain diseases and conditions of the hip. The most common hip conditions treated with arthroscopy include labral pathology, femoro-acetabular impingement (FAI) and ligament issues.

1488Hip Fracture Treatment

1484Hip Replacement
Hip Replacement
Hip replacement is done when the surfaces in the hip are worn out and painful. These days recovery is not as painful as it used to be thanks to better anaesthetic techniques and the anterior approach. Better materials and implantation methods also mean that hip replacements will last longer and may be ok for some younger (and older) people than before.

Knee Procedures

1410Knee Arthroscopy
Knee Arthroscopy
Knee arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that allows Dr Hutabarat to view the knee joint without making a large incision (cut) through the skin and other soft tissues. Arthroscopy is used to diagnose and treat a wide range of knee problems.

1474Knee Replacement
