What is Total Knee Replacement?

Total knee replacement (TKR) 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 total 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 TKR 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.

    Knee Replacement Surgery (TKR)

    knee replacement 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 1 small incision of 3- to 4 inch 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

    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."
