About Knee Replacement

Knee Replacement, also called Knee Arthroplasty, is a surgical treatment for relieving pain and restoring function to a severely diseased knee joint. The treatment is performed by cutting away the diseased part of the joint and replacing them with a knee joint implant. The goal of knee joint replacement surgery is to increase joint mobility, stability, and strength to allow the patient better function.

Unlike conventional open knee surgeries, minimally invasive knee replacement surgeries do not create a large incision and hence are safe for people of all ages and weights, even for people with pre-existing health conditions.

Pristyn Care is associated with the best knee surgery hospitals in Kolkata that provide affordable, safe, and effective total knee arthroplasty near you.

Diagnosis for Knee Replacement

Most patients try to manage knee dysfunction in the early stages via over-the-counter drugs, physiotherapy, and other holistic measures. But as the dysfunction progresses, these measures become ineffective till the only treatment left is knee arthroplasty. Before making this decision, the doctor conducts a series of diagnostic tests to ensure that surgery is necessary for the patient.
Diagnostic tests required for Total Knee Replacement are:

  • X-Ray
  • MRI
  • Echocardiogram

These tests help determine the severity of the patient’s condition and the kind of procedure and prosthesis they might need for treatment.

Minimally invasive knee replacements are performed through a small 3-4 inch incision. This helps reduce the chance of infection and inflammation and allows the patient to heal faster. In conventional procedures, the surgeon performs the surgery through an 8-12 inch incision. Since the incision is a lot smaller, the scar is less noticeable as well. In addition, the treatment is performed through modified instruments to allow less trauma to the surrounding tissues. The entire surgery is completed in about 1-3 hours.

Pristyn Care is considered among the best knee replacement surgery providers in Kolkata due to its safe, effective, and affordable treatment packages.

What are the different kinds of knee implants?

Generally, a knee implant is made of four components, i.e., a tibial component, a femoral component, a patellar component, and a plastic spacer in between them. Based on their components knee implants can be categorized as:

  • Metal on plastic: In this type of implant, a metal femoral component is attached to a plastic tibial component. It is the most common, least expensive kind of implant. However, these implants are not preferred as much now because the particles released due to wearing away of the plastic component can trigger an immune response in the future.
  • Ceramic on plastic: These implants feature a ceramic femoral component on a plastic tibial component. It is used in people who might have an allergy to metal implants. However, they are not preferred for the same reason as the metal on plastic implants.
  • Ceramic on ceramic: In these implants, both components are made of ceramic. They are least likely to trigger an immune response. However, they are not preferred as much because they make a squeaking noise when the patient is walking. Also, they can easily shatter when subjected to very heavy loads.
  • Metal on metal: In these implants, both components are made of metal. These are not widely in use as they release small amounts of metal in the bloodstream as they erode, which can cause inflammation, pain, and even permanent organ damage in the long term.
