Bone and Joint Infection Clinic in Kenya

Quality Orthopedic Care

Your bones and muscles work with your tendons and ligaments to create the synchronized movements of your joints. When your bones and joints are healthy, you move freely and without pain.

But when they’re not, your life can come to a painful, grinding stop.

Nairobi Spine and Orthopaedic Centre bone and joint infection specialists are experienced in identifying and treating bone infections, known as osteomyelitis, and joint infections, or septic arthritis.

These infections begin when disease-carrying bacteria enter the body, often after a trauma or a surgical procedure, and spread to the bones and joints through the bloodstream. Without prompt treatment, bone and joint infections can become long-term conditions.

How are bone and joint infections diagnosed?

To diagnose a bone or joint infection, your doctor first performs a physical exam, looking for any open sores or areas of tenderness, swelling, and redness.

He or she may ask if you’ve had any recent infections or surgery, of if you’ve experienced any pain or decreased range of motion in the affected limb or joint.

The doctor may also order tests such as blood tests, x-rays, MRI scans, CT scans and bone biopsies to look for the presence of bacteria and assess the extent of the condition.

Treatment of Bone and Joint Infections

The orthopedic surgeons in Kenya at NSOC and infectious disease specialists work together to identify the bacteria responsible for a bone or joint infection. Using this information, they create a treatment plan. They typically prescribe oral or intravenous (IV) antibiotics.

They may also recommend surgery for some people with bone or joint infections. Treatment depends on the type and location of the infection.

Many bone and joint infections are cleared with medication, surgery, or a combination of the two.

Our experienced orthopedists in Kenya at NSOC help prevent bone and joint infections from returning. During follow-up visits, which may occur every two weeks, our doctors perform blood tests to monitor for signs of infection and to ensure that treatment is effective.
