What is Knee Replacement Surgery?

Knee replacement surgery, also known as total knee replacement or knee arthroplasty, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to resurface the damaged knee. This surgery is suggested by orthopedic surgeons for patients who have severe arthritis, bone tumor or severe knee injury.

The goal of minimally invasive knee replacement surgery is to resurface the parts of the knee joint which have been damaged and to relieve chronic or constant knee pain which cannot be controlled by other non-surgical treatments. Unlike traditional total knee replacement, minimally invasive knee replacement surgery is apt for all patients. Consult highly skilled orthopedic surgeons at Pristyn Care who specialize in minimally invasive orthopedic surgeries such as total knee replacement, hip replacement, etc.

Diagnosis

The orthopedic surgeon will ask you to have some tests before knee replacement surgery, including-

  • X-Ray
  • MRI
  • Echocardiogram

These imaging tests will help in better diagnosis of the condition, the surgeon will suggest the best suitable treatment option for you after evaluating your condition based on the test results.

Surgery

The minimally invasive knee replacement procedure involves the use of modified techniques and surgical instruments to place the clinically proven implants through a small incision. The minimally invasive knee replacement surgery is performed through 1 small of 3- to 4-inch incision instead of a larger incision of 8- to 12-inch, as in case of the traditional surgery for knee replacement.

Potential benefits of minimally invasive knee replacement surgery include increased knee mobility and motion sooner after the surgery, lesser blood loss during the surgery, faster and easier recovery, much smaller scar and shorter hospital stay.

In our Doctor’s Words

Knee replacement surgery is one of the most delayed surgical procedures. Patients delay it until they can barely walk or bones start cracking. A common sentiment is, I thought it was Ok, as long as I could walk or My friends told me yoga could help. Well, while yoga and other exercises can help prevent certain diseases, an unmonitored strain during an already severed arthritis, does more damage than good. It may severe the pain, and advance complications. This is why I always highlight the importance of timely treatment. Then, youll able to recover quicker, adjust faster, walk painlessly and experience a very evident change in the quality of life. Also its a myth that the implants only last 5-6 years. No. A good knee replacement surgery will easily last you an average of 15-25 years.

Seek relief from chronic knee pain and instability with the best knee replacement surgery in Bangalore

Such conditions can cause inflammation, severe and chronic pain, and damage to the knee. Our experienced orthopedic surgeons have years of experience in treating patients with such orthopedic issues. Based on a detailed diagnosis and evaluation of the condition and functioning of the knee, the knee replacement surgeon will begin the course of treatment, preferably with less -invasive or nonsurgical treatments, including pain medicines, corticosteroid injections, and physiotherapy. But, if the treatment does not help and you continue to experience chronic and severe knee pain, then a knee replacement surgery might be the best solution.

When should you undergo knee replacement surgery?

If you have been suffering from knee arthritis or other knee injuries, your knee replacement surgeon would have probably already tried non-surgical treatments before suggesting you a knee replacement surgery. Orthopedic surgeons usually do not recommend knee replacement until other treatment options have failed to provide relief. Your knee replacement surgeon may suggest you consider knee replacement when the knee problems diminish your quality of life or if the condition is worsening. This may include-

  • Severe complications arising due to the condition
  • Knee deformity which limits the joint motion and causes disability
  • Pain or stiffness in the knee that significantly limits regular activities
  • Severe or constant knee pain occurring even when at rest

If resting and nonsurgical treatments have failed to provide relief, you should consider a knee replacement surgery to prevent any further complications and resume your regular life without any knee pain.

Suffering from degenerative knee disease? Our knee specialists are here to help

Degenerative knee joint disease, also known as OA (osteoarthritis), is the most common type of knee disease. Degenerative joint disease commonly occurs in the knee joint, hip joint, hands, and the spine.

Degenerative joint disease typically occurs with aging when the cartilage cushioning the bones breaks down and the bone surfaces are exposed and rub-down together, causing friction. This friction may cause general irritation and the joint region may become inflamed and painful, resulting in a loss of motion in the knee joint. Other complications of degenerative joint disease may include development of bone spurs around the affected knee or weakness and stiffness in the surrounding ligaments and muscles.

If you or your loved one is suffering from knee osteoarthritis or degenerative joint disease in the knee, you may know how severely this disease can affect an individual’s life. The loss of joint movement and function and knee pain can highly impact a person’s quality of life and might keep them from doing the things they enjoy. Our best knee doctor in Bangalore offers the most suitable and promising treatment options for chronic joint pain and other conditions, including joint replacement and reconstruction surgery. Your knee specialist will provide you with all the necessary information about your condition and available treatment options and will answer questions you may have to help you make a well-informed decision.

Common types of Knee Replacement

  • Total knee replacement
  • Unicompartmental or partial knee replacement
  • Patellofemoral arthroplasty (kneecap replacement)
  • Revision (complex) knee replacement

There are several kinds of knee replacement surgeries and different surgical methods for performing the procedure. Your orthopaedic surgeon will help you to choose the best surgery for you, taking into account the condition of your knee, your general health, age and lifestyle.

Types of Knee Replacement Implants

There are different types of knee implants. The main difference between them is whether the implant replaces the entire knee joint or only some component of it. The most suitable type of knee implant suitable for will depend on various factors.

Artificial knee implants basically consist of the following parts-

  • A metal cap placed on the end of the thigh bone, after removal of the damaged joint surfaces.
  • A platform also called the tibial (lower leg) component (usually consisting of a metal alloy) that replaces the top surface of the lower leg.
  • A plastic spacer made up of polyethylene between the upper leg and lower leg component that replaces the knee joint space and meniscus and helps the knee implant move.

There are several different options for knee joint implants available Your surgeon will select the implant during your preoperative visits. The type of knee implant used for your replacement surgery will depend on various factors, such as your age, weight, activity level and severity of arthritis (if present).
