Total Knee Replacement Surgery in India
Total Knee replacement is the best treatment for arthritis when all other conservative treatments like medicine, physiotherapy etc have failed to relieve the patient of disabling knee pain. During a total knee replacement, the surgeon removes the damaged cartilage and bone from the surface of your knee and replaces them with man- made surface of metal and plastic
The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and takes about 2-3 hours. An 8-12 inch incision is made in the front of the knee and the artificial joint is attached to the femur or thigh bone with special material.
Minimally Invasive knee Replacement
Minimally invasive surgery has revolutionized knee replacement surgery as well as many fields of medicine. Its key characteristic is that it uses specialized techniques and instruments to enable the surgeon to perform major surgery without a large incision.
Minimally invasive knee joint replacement requires a much smaller incision, 3 to 5 inches, versus the standard approach and incision. The smaller, less invasive approaches result in less tissue damage by allowing the surgeon to work between the fibres of the quadriceps muscles instead of requiring an incision through the tendon. It may lead to less pain, decreased recovery time and better motion due to less scar tissue formation.
The results of total knee replacement are very gratifying. One can enjoy an active lifestyle after the surgery free of pain
Partial Knee Replacement
Partial knee replacement or Uni-compartmental knee replacement is an option for patients with osteoarthritis of a part of the knee joint. In a uni-compartmental knee replacement, only the damaged compartment is replaced with metal and plastic.
This is ideal for the younger patient in the 40's or 50's with uni-compartmental arthritis and this could be the first knee replacement for this patient (postponing TKR by fifteen years).
It could also be the last knee replacement for the very elderly patient after 80. It is also known as Uni-condylar or Uni- compartmental knee replacement surgery.
Simultaneous Bilateral Knee Replacement - Both Knee Replacement Surgery
Simultaneous knee replacement or bilateral knee replacement means both knees are replaced at the same surgery, in one day. With advanced technology and minimally invasive knee replacement techniques, it is possible to perform simultaneous knee replacement in many patients.
The benefit of simultaneous knee replacement is less cost, one time and lesser stay at the hospital, one time anaesthesia, lesser and one time rehabilitation. The surgeon decides the candidacy of the patient if he/ she is suitable for both knee replacement at the same time.

Laminar Air Flow in Operation Theatres
Our network of joint replacement hospitals in India have operation theatres built according to international specifications using ultra-clean laminar air flow system. Laminar air flow allows best standards of infection control and thus there have been no chances of infection in these hospitals for knee replacement surgery.
Computer Navigation System
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)
Gender Specific implants
Because of anatomical difference between men and women, the implants and prosthesis used for men and women for knee replacement implants are designed based on an average size of women's and men's knees. These customise implants for knee replacement surgery offer better results especially for women as it is specifically designed for their needs
Hi - flex implants
A High flexion knee or full bend knee replacement allows bending to 155 degrees and is a boon to patients seeking increased function after knee replacement. The hi flex knees allow activities which are not possible after conventional knee replacement. This includes kneeling, squatting, gardening etc.
