Total Knee Replacement:

In this procedure, the knee is replaced with an artificial joint. It requires a major surgery and hospitalization. The surgeon replaces the damaged portions of the knee with plastic and metal parts.

The benefits of Same-Day-Both-Knee Surgery are that it takes you half the time to fully recover from the knee surgery. Although you are out of bed and walking on the second day after surgery and climbing stairs 5 days after surgery, it takes approximately 3 months to fully recover from this surgery and have complete freedom to do what you like.

Knee replacement is technically demanding, needs careful planning and also a variety of add-on in terms of implant accessories will need to be made available in the operating theater before commencing surgery. We routinely perform surgery at our hospital for those patients who need it. Another common complication we see is a fracture of the bone near the site of implant, on the rare occasion when a patient falls down on landing/twisting on the operated leg  This needs special plating technique with the Locking compression plate technique.

If you are planning to do one knee surgery at a time, this means it will take (3+3) 6 months for full recovery!. Of course, not everyone is fit enough for both knee surgery. But if you are a fit person, then it makes sense to have both knees operated at the same time. Most of my patients prefer both knee surgery on the same day and if they are fit I offer it to them.

Knee replacement, also called arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to resurface a knee damaged by arthritis. Metal and plastic parts are used to cap the ends of the bones that form the knee joint, along with the kneecap. This surgery may be considered for someone who has severe arthritis or a severe knee injury.

A Total knee replacement is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased knee joint is replaced with artificial material. The knee is a hinge joint which provides motion at the point where the thigh meets the lower leg. The thighbone (or femur) abuts the large bone of the lower leg (tibia) at the knee joint.

Imagine yourself pushing a fully loaded vehicle which has flat tires. You would need considerable force to make it move. Same happens to an overweight person with an Arthritic Knee Joint. Their knee joints feel stiff and are deformed and hence the person needs more physical energy to get up from a sitting position, walk, climb stairs and negotiate slopes.

The solution to the painful arthritic knee is now easily available in form of Knee Surface Replacement.
