About Knee Replacement Sugery

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.

Treatment

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.

Procedure

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 small incisions instead of a larger incision as in the 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 Word

What-Dr. Ashish Taneja-Say-About-Knee Replacement-Treatment

Dr. Ashish Taneja

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics

17 Years Experience

"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, you'll 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."

What is a partial knee replacement

A partial knee replacement is an alternative procedure to a total knee replacement in which only the damaged parts of the knee cartilage are replaced with a prosthesis (implant). This surgery can be performed when the damage is limited to a particular part of the knee. Partial or unicompartmental knee replacement is a promising treatment option for some people with knee osteoarthritis.

What are the stages of knee osteoarthritis?
  • Grade 0-Normal knee health.
  • Grade 1- Very minor bone spur growth with no pain or discomfort.

  • Grade 3: Moderate OA and pain.
  • Grade 4: Most severe stage of OA with chronic knee pain and significantly reduced mobility.
What is knee arthroplasty?

What is degenerative knee joint disease?

Knee osteoarthritis is another medical term for degenerative joint disease of the knee joint.

What is the lifespan of a knee joint replacement?

The answer depends on several factors like the type of knee implant, the patient’s age, physical condition, activity level and body weight. Because these knee implants are made with strong materials (that are designed to last several years) and provide a secure fit, a total knee implant is expected to last beyond 20 years. A partial knee replacement can last around 10- 15 years.

What are the common knee replacement failure symptoms?

The most common symptoms of a failed knee implant are pain, decrease in knee function, instability, swelling and stiffness in the knee joint.

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. 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.
