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 knee replacement surgeons in Mumbai at Pristyn Care who specialize in minimally invasive orthopedic surgeries such as total knee replacement, hip replacement, etc.

Diagnosis

At Pristyn Care, there is an in-house team of experienced orthopedic surgeons in Mumbai. The knee replacement surgeon in Mumbai will conduct a thorough diagnosis for the condition. S/he will also suggest some tests before knee replacement surgery, such as-

  • X-Ray
  • MRI
  • Echocardiogram

These imaging tests will help in better diagnosis of the condition, the orthopedic 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 a small 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.

Suffering from degenerative knee disease? Our knee specialists in Mumbai are here to help you.

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

The 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 the 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 Mumbai 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.

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

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