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.

    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 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.

    What-Dr. Abhishek Bansal-Say-About-Knee Replacement-Treatment

    Dr. Abhishek Bansal

    MBBS, MS (Ortho), DNB- Orthopedics, M.R.C.S.

    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."

    FAQs around Knee Replacement In Mumbai

    You will be able to get out of bed and walk the same day after your knee replacement surgery.

    What is robotic assisted knee replacement surgery?

    Robotic knee replacement is a modern procedure performed with assistance of a robotic arm or hand held robotic device to replace the diseased/ damaged knee joint with an artificial implant.

    What are the most common types of knee arthritis?

    The two most common types of arthritis affecting the knee are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

    What is knee cartilage regeneration?

    Cartilage regeneration, also known as autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI), is an innovative orthopedic knee surgery to replace the damaged or worn-out cartilage in the knee joint. The procedure is performed by an orthopedic surgeon who takes the healthy cartilage cells from the damaged knee, cultures them in a lab for a span of 4 to 6 weeks, and then injects the new cells into the damaged joint for regeneration with the healthy nearby cartilage. This is a minimally invasive procedure and is a promising option for some patients with isolated cartilage loss. Patients with more extensive knee damage often require knee replacement surgery.

    Can someone undergo knee replacement at age 70 or 80?

    There is no age limit for knee replacement surgery. Studies have found that patients in their 70s, 80s and 90s benefit from a knee replacement as much as younger patients.

    How long is the recovery time after knee replacement surgery at age 80?

    Recovery time after knee replacement surgery for elderly patients at the age of 80 or above is about 12 weeks. The patient will likely need a walking aid like a walker or crutches to get around for the first 2 to 3 weeks. Within 4 to 6 weeks, the patient would most likely notice a significant decrease in swelling and increase in movement.

    What is a partial knee replacement surgery?

    A partial knee joint replacement surgery 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).

Partial or unicompartmental knee replacement surgery is a promising treatment option for some people with knee osteoarthritis.

    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.
