About Knee Replacement

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.

Diagnosis for Knee Replacement

Most patients try to manage knee dysfunction in the early stages via over-the-counter drugs, physiotherapy, and other holistic measures. But as the dysfunction progresses, these measures become ineffective till the only treatment left is knee arthroplasty. Before making this decision, the doctor conducts a series of diagnostic tests to ensure that surgery is necessary for the patient.
Diagnostic tests required for Total Knee Replacement are:

  • X-Ray
  • MRI
  • Echocardiogram

These tests help determine the severity of the patient’s condition and the kind of procedure and prosthesis they might need for treatment.

Knee Replacement Surgery

Minimally invasive knee replacements are performed through a small 3-4 inch incision. This helps reduce the chance of infection and inflammation and allows the patient to heal faster. In conventional procedures, the surgeon performs the surgery through an 8-12 inch incision. Since the incision is a lot smaller, the scar is less noticeable as well. In addition, the treatment is performed through modified instruments to allow less trauma to the surrounding tissues. The entire surgery is completed in about 1-3 hours.

Pristyn Care is considered among the best knee replacement surgery providers in Tirupati due to its safe, effective, and affordable treatment packages.

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."
