It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more

If from childhood, the weaker eye's image is often suppressed and not seen. ...Read more

I heard that you can't get lasik surgery if you have a dot on the side of your eye. Is this true?

I heard that you can't get lasik surgery if you have a dot on the side of your eye. Is this true?

Depends: It depends on what you mean by a 'dot'. If you have a growth on your cornea called a pterygium, which is a medical problem, this could affect your ability to have lasik. Most eye surgeons would take care of that first before giving you the refractive surgery. If the dot is a pingueculum, or sun damaged conjunctiva, then that might not be a problem. ...Read more

What treatment do I need for a sclerotic lesion at the neck of the fibula due to a bone island  I have pain is there a treatment for it plz?

Work up?: An MRI can determine if a lesion in bone is an active process. Many times, sclerotic lesions in bones, or bone islands, are innocuous, and cause no problems. If there is pain associated with the lesion, then it may signal a more serious problem. Seek care or additional workup. ...Read more

If you have amblyopia, is there a surgery to correct the lazy eye?

If you have amblyopia, is there a surgery to correct the lazy eye?

No: Amblyopia (lazy eye) develops when one eye is not used early in life. This is usually due to not using both eyes together due to eye position (ie. Crossed), or amount of eyeglass correction. If not caught early in life the brain does not make the proper connections to see well out of that eye. If the amblyopia is due to eye position eye muscle surgery at a young age may help. ...Read more

Is it something serious when you have a slight superior medial mensicus displacement? What usually is the treament for that? Does it require surgery?

Is it something serious when you have a slight superior medial mensicus displacement? What usually is the treament for that? Does it require surgery?

Not necessarily: Surgery is always an option, but just depends on your symptoms. If you don't have significant swelling or pain, then conservative management is appropriate. If you have pain that impacts your daily activities, having the meniscus "fixed" (through an arthroscopy) is an option. "displacement" of a meniscus likely means that if you re-tweak your knee, you'll complete the tear. Good luck! ...Read more
