Total Knee Replacement
Total Knee Replacement Surgery is one of the commonest surgery in India. Most of the people above the age of 50 have some kind of knee pain which reduces their activity level. The pain is mostly due to arthritis which results in degradation of the knee joint. Once the pain increases then our mobility is reduced and this makes the muscles of the legs weaker.
The severe pain prevents us from physical activity and the quality of life goes down. A lot of people think that Knee Replacement means replacing the original knee joint with an artificial knee which is not true. In this surgery only the top surface of the knee joint which has degraded is replaced by a titanium implant.
Surgery & Recovery
When you get admitted for the surgery we carry out all the pre surgery tests to evaluate your fitness for surgery. The surgery for each knee is finised in 45-60 minutes. We use FDA approved imported titanium implants and keep the biggest stock of these implants so that the right sized implant is used for your knee. Your stay in the hospital would be 5 days for single knee and 7 days for both the knees.
You are on your feet from the 2nd day of the surgery and intesive phyiotherapy is given during your stay at the hospital. After discharge you are given a complete programme for rehabilitation which you should continue for the next 45-60 days during which you would recover completely and would be able to do all kinds of activities.
Knee Replacement Surgery at Vardhman Hospital is done by a team of Orthopaedic Surgeons led by world renowned Dr Mukesh Jain. and Dr Anubhav Jain. All of our orthopaedic doctors are trained on Computer Navigated Knee Replacement. The navigation helps in the alignment of the knee joint with the hip joint and leaves no scope for any kind of human error.
Dr Mukesh Jain is considered as one of the best knee replacement surgeon in India with more than 30 years of experience and has done several thousand of these surgeries successfully. Knee Replacement surgery takes only 45 minutes but the entire process is close to 3 months and post surgery rehabilitation is very important. Our team of physiotherapists make sure that you get the best post operative rehab.
