Why you should choose World Class Hospitals in India for Most Advanced Total Knee Replacement Surgery ?
Most Advanced Knee Joint Replacement options.
Total Knee Replacement or Knee Arthroplasty (TKA), is a is a common surgical procedure most often performed to relieve the pain and disability from degenerative arthritis, meniscus tears, osteoarthritis of knee, cartilage defects, and ligament tears.
The most common cause for knee pain which needs Knee Replacement Surgery is osteoarthritis of knee. In Total Knee Replacement, the orthopedic surgeon removes damaged cartilage and bone from the surface of your knee joint and replaces them with a prosthesis/implant of metal and plastic. Total knee replacement can help put an end to arthritic pain in your knee and enable you to resume a functional and active lifestyle.
A large number of patients have arthritis limited to only one part of the knee joint alone. Replacing the whole joint in these patients is unnecessary. Therefore in this type of surgery only that part of the knee, which is unhealthy, is replaced. The normal surfaces are left alone. This operation has several advantages over total knee replacement surgery like smaller incision, longer life of implant, reduced post operative hospitalization and much faster return to active life after knee replacement surgery.
Orthopedic surgeons may recommend both knees are required to be replaced in the same surgery, in one day. The benefit of simultaneous knee replacement is that both knee problems are taken care of at one time. The overall stay and rehabilitation can be done in a shorter time, and there is only one time hospitalization, anaesthesia and quicker return to active life after the surgery. In ters of the surgery cost as well it is much more economical to replace both Knee joints in One surgery.
It may be required to replace a worn out Knee Joint 15-20 years after the first Total Knee Replacement surgery. This kind of revision Knee joint replacement requires a very experienced and skillful surgeon who can remove the old implant and install a new one without causing any discomfort to the patient.
Such Revision Total Knee Replacement Surgeries are routinely done at our world class orthopedic hospitals in India using the most advanced prosthesis and Computer Assisted Surgical techniques what have so far produced excellent outcomes for our patients.
Knee arthroscopic surgery is a procedure performed through small incisions in the skin to repair injuries to tissues such as ligaments, cartilage, or bone within the knee joint area. The surgery is conducted by an orthopedic surgeon with the aid of an arthroscope, which is a very small instrument guided by a lighted scope attached to a television monitor.
Knee arthroscopy has in many cases replaced the classic arthrotomy that was performed in the past. Today knee arthroscopy is commonly performed for treating meniscus injury, reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament and for cartilage microfracturing. Many knee joint problems are amenable to arthroscopic surgery like :-
- Trimming a torn meniscus of the knee
- Repairing a torn meniscus of the knee
- Treatment of cartilage damage in the knee
Advanced Technology for Best Outcomes and Long Lasting Knee Joint Replacement.
In computer assisted Knee Replacement, the computer guides the surgeon in precisely planning the exact amount and angle of bone to be removed during surgery. This, in conventional method is done by simple eye-balling. This technology helps to perform the surgery through small incision (Minimally Invasive Surgery) with 100% precision, eliminating “Human Error” during surgery and helps in perfectly aligning and balancing of knee joint (with accuracy of 0.5 mm and 0.5 degrees). It also helps in increasing implant longevity (20-30 years).
A women’s anatomy is clearly different than a man’s anatomy. Research shows women and men are different all the way down to their knees. Taking this fact into consideration knee replacement implants have been designed based on an average size of women’s and men’s knees.
Now- a- days gender specific implants are extensively used in Knee Replacement Surgery for better results. A gender-specific Knee implant is a prosthesis that is a great boon for women and specifically designed for their needs.
The design of the high flex implants closely replicate normal knee. Rotating knee replacement implants can swing backward and forward giving the knee flexibility to move forward and outward.
High flexion gives patient the freedom to the extent that the patient can even squat ,cross leg and sit on the floor.
Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation
When you’re undergoing joint replacement, whether it’s for a hip or a knee, physical therapy plays a critical role in every stage of the process.Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation services help the patient to return back to normal activity quickly after the surgery. Before you leave the hospital, your physiotherapist will show you a variety of exercises designed to help you regain mobility and strength in your joint. You should be able to perform these exercises at home. You will be shown how to safely climb and descend stairs and how to get into and out of a seated position once you return home. It is a good idea to enlist the help of friends or family once you do return home.
