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

Knee replacement surgery is a common yet major orthopedic surgery which is used to replace the damaged or worn-out surfaces of the knee. During the surgery, the orthopedic surgeon will replace these damaged or worn out surfaces with an implant. This will relieve pain and maximise mobility, allowing increased knee motion.

When is total knee replacement surgery recommended?

Reasons why an orthopedic surgeons may recommend you knee replacement surgery may include-

  • Severe knee pain or stiffness which limits everyday activities, including walking, climbing stairs, and getting in and out of chairs.
  • Inability to walk long distances or feeling the need to use a walking cane
  • Moderate or severe pain in knee even while resting
  • Chronic knee inflammation and swelling which does not improve with rest or prescribed medications
  • Knee deformity (evident bowing in or out of the knee)
  • Failure to substantially improve with other non surgical treatments such as medications, injections or physical therapy.

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.

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 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.

Suffering from degenerative knee disease? Our knee specialists are here to help

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

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 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.

  • A platform also called the tibial (lower leg) component (usually consisting of a metal alloy) that replaces the top surface of the lower leg.
  • A plastic spacer made up of polyethylene between the upper leg and lower leg component that 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).
