  • Summary

A broken or worn-out joint is replaced with a prosthetic implant during joint replacement surgery, commonly referred to as arthroplasty, in order to restore mobility and reduce discomfort. The quality of life for those with severe joint diseases, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or joint trauma, can be greatly improved by this surgical procedure, which is frequently carried out on joints including the hip, knee, shoulder, and elbow.

  • Knee joint replacement

Knee arthroplasty, commonly referred to as knee replacement, is a surgical operation used to replace the knee joint’s weight-bearing surfaces in an effort to ease discomfort and incapacity.

A partial or full knee replacement can be done during surgery for a knee replacement. Surgery often entails replacing the knee’s diseased or damaged joint surfaces with metal and plastic components tailored to preserve knee motion.

It is most frequently used to treat osteoarthritis, as well as other knee conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, severe post-traumatic deformity, and cartilage abnormalities.

Between the ages of 50 and 80, knee replacement is most prevalent.

  • About the procedure

You will visit us for a consultation before surgery, during which we will:

  1. Enquire about your medical background and ongoing prescriptions.

  2. Carefully examine your knee joint, paying attention to its range of motion, any deformities, and the strength of the muscles around it.

  3. If necessary, order a blood test, a knee X-ray, and an MRI scan.

It is a good idea for you to ask questions concerning the operation during this pre-operative evaluation. Find out which drugs you need to stop taking or keep taking the week before surgery.

  • Total Hip replacement

The most typical treatment for joint failure brought on by osteoarthritis is a total hip replacement. Rheumatoid arthritis, specific hip fractures, and benign and malignant bone cancers are further indications. The procedure’s goals are pain alleviation and improved hip function. Hip replacement is typically only taken into consideration after failing with conventional treatments like physical therapy and painkillers.

The diseased bone and cartilage of the hip joint are removed during a total hip replacement, also known as a total hip arthroplasty, and replaced with artificial parts. One of the most effective operations in all of the medicine is hip replacement surgery.
