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.

Treatment

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 of 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 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 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). This surgery can be performed when the damage is limited to a particular part of the knee. Partial or unicompartmental knee replacement surgery is a promising treatment option for some people with knee osteoarthritis. Contact Pristyn Care for knee replacement surgery in Mumbai for the most effective treatment.

What is MPFL reconstruction of the knee?

What is knee osteoarthritis?

Knee osteoarthritis or OA is a degenerative joint disease of the knee joint and is typically the result of wear and tear and progressive loss of the articular cartilage (ACL). It is most common among older people and can be divided in 4 categories, depending on the severity of damage and symptoms.

What is the lifespan of a knee joint replacement?

The answer depends on several factors like the type of knee implant used for knee replacement surgery, 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 type of anesthesia is used for knee replacement surgery?

Spinal or general anesthesia is typically used for knee replacement surgery.

What is the latest technology used in knee replacement surgery?

Minimally invasive total knee replacement, also known as quadriceps sparing TKR is the latest technique to perform knee replacement surgery. This technique allows the orthopedic surgeon to replace the damaged knee joint without cutting major tissue or muscles. If you are planning to undergo knee replacement surgery, consult expert knee replacement surgeons near you. Contact us and book your consultation free of cost with our best orthopedic doctor in Mumbai.

Most patients who undergo a successful knee replacement surgery do not require a revision surgery. However, depending on the type of the implant used for knee replacement, lifestyle, and other factors, some patients might require a revision surgery.

Rest assured, the pain is not severe and can be easily managed with painkillers after knee replacement surgery.

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.

    Treatment: Knee Replacement

    5/5

    I seriously have no words to express my gratitude towards the kind of assistance i have recieved throughout this entire process of treatment which i thought would be an uphill task if I would have done it on my own. I would like to categorically give a big shout out to Nityanand C who has been way beyond exceptional from his first interaction with me till date. He may not be the doctor but ensured that he kept us calm and composed throughout this journey. The wide selection of doctors with years of experience and selection of hospitals is something you would not be able to do if u try something this big on ur own. Nityanand Sir made sure we got the best doctor and the best facility to get the operation a success. We did not have to go through the hassle of queues, filling hundreds of paper for admission or running behind hospital staff to obtain the approval status before discharge. Everything was way too organized n was executed as what was planned. The consulting doctor is a true gem made me at ease n filled me with confidence. The only piece I would want to make sure that the Team focus on is around the city care buddies who are assigned to the patients as they donot have all the information and start asking the same questions which ur actually case specialist would know. This is my second experience with pristyn n i would highly recommend it to all my friends n family. A Big Thank you to the entire Pristyn Care Team and special thanks and appreciation to Nityanand Sir for being very pateint and accomodating during the entire process.
