Dr Venkatram Thalapalli - Treatment for Osteogenesis Imperfecta at Banjara Hills

Expert in Osteogenesis Imperfecta Treatment at Kukatpally

Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI), also known as Brittle Bone Disease, is a genetic disorder characterized by bones that break easily.

There are four types of OI, with type I being the mildest and type IV being the most severe.

OI is caused by a mutation in one of the genes responsible for producing collagen, the protein that provides structure and strength to bones. As a result, people with OI have bones that are brittle and prone to breaking.

Symptoms of OI include frequent bone fractures, weak muscles, joint laxity, hearing loss, and short stature. The severity of symptoms varies depending on the type of OI.

If left untreated, OI can lead to deformities, chronic pain, and disability. However, with proper treatment, many people with OI are able to lead full and active lives.

Treatment options for OI include medication to increase bone density, physical therapy to build muscle strength and improve mobility, and surgery to correct deformities.

Dr. Venkatram Thyalapalli, M.B.B.S, M.S. (Orthopedics) (OSM) has extensive experience and expertise in treating OI and other orthopedic conditions. He has successfully treated numerous patients with OI, helping them to regain mobility, reduce pain, and improve their quality of life.

Dr. Venkatram takes a personalized approach to diagnosis and treatment, working closely with each patient to develop a customized treatment plan that meets their individual needs and goals.
