Get Your Orthopedic Injuries Treated At An Advanced Joint Replacement Centre

April 16, 2021

Knee replacement is a surgical procedure that enhances the quality of life by decreasing pain among many patients with severe arthritis of the knees. Patients usually undergo this surgery after non-operative treatments fail to provide relief of pain and arthritic symptoms. Non-operative treatments are known to include knee joint injection, anti-inflammatory medication, and activity modification.

Surgeons have been performing knee replacements for over decades. However, the advancement in medical sciences and technological modernization has made it more efficient to achieve excellent results.

For those who are not aware, there are 2 types of knee replacements:

  • total knee replacements and
  • minimally-invasive partial knee replacements (mini knee).
Total Knee Replacement

Traditional total knee replacement involves an incision of 7-8” over the knee, a hospital stay of a few days, followed by a recovery period (lasting for a maximum of three months) during which the patient starts to walk with a cane or walker. Once the patients have recovered from a total knee replacement, a large number of them report complete or substantial relief of their arthritic symptoms.

Partial Knee Replacement

Partial knee replacement is being performed for many years now and offers excellent clinical results. The less invasive techniques are available to insert these smaller implants but only a minority of knee replacement patients are suitable candidates for this procedure.

Knee replacement surgery restores the weight-bearing ability of a worn out, damaged, or diseased knee joint. The aim here is to restore mobility and help patients get rid of the pain.

It is also known as knee resurfacing or knee arthroplasty.

The surgeon caps the ends of the bones that form the knee joint with plastic or metal components, or implants a prosthetic, shaped in the form of a joint. This makes it possible for the knee to move properly.

Knee replacement surgery is known to help the patients whose knee/knees have degenerated due to various conditions including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, post-traumatic arthritis, or, when an injury has damaged the knee.
