If a patient's knee is severely damaged, whether as a result of arthritis or an injury, it may be difficult for them to perform activities that are a normal part of their daily routine, such as walking or climbing stairs. This is because arthritis and injuries are two of the most common causes of knee pain. After a certain amount of time, people may even experience discomfort, whether seated or lying down. When non-surgical procedures such as using walking aids and medicines are no longer effective in treating a patient's knee condition, the orthopaedic surgeon may recommend that the patient requires a total knee replacement. It is a risk-free surgery that aids in the reduction of pain corrects leg deformity, and assists the patient in returning to regular activities.
Only the most reputable medical facilities like Manav Hospital are fully equipped to perform total knee replacement surgery, also known as arthroplasty of the knee. The complete knee replacement procedure is broken down into four distinct stages. The bone will need to be prepared, the metal implants will need to be positioned, the patella will need to be resurfaced, and a spacer will need to be inserted. Before total knee replacement procedure, our Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Sharad Gupta will evaluate the patient's medical records, do a physical examination, take X-rays, and may advise a CT Scan and blood tests. After going through the findings of the patient, the ortho surgeon Dr. Sharad Gupta decides whether or not total knee replacement surgery is the most appropriate course of treatment for that individual to enhance function and decrease levels of discomfort. Physical therapy, medicines, injections, and other forms of surgery are some other therapeutic possibilities. If you want your total knee replacement to go well, it's essential that you take care of the knee implant and your overall health following the procedure, as outlined by Dr. Sharad Gupta.
After a careful medical examination, patients with severe arthritis in both knees may be given a simultaneous replacement of both knees. Computer-assisted joint replacement is another option since it increases implant alignment and surgical accuracy.
The complexity of the knee joint is greater than any other joint in the body. It is made up of the intersection of three bones, namely the patella (also known as the knee cap), the thigh bone (also known as the distal femoral condyles), and the leg bone (the proximal tibial plateau). Articular cartilage, a flexible tissue that enables unrestricted movement in the knee, covers the ends of the tibia and femur. If it is injured, cartilage cannot heal itself. Knee replacement surgery is the treatment of choice in these kinds of situations.
At Manav Hospital, Ghaziabad more than 500 joint replacement surgeries have been done with complete success and pristine results clearing to improve lifestyle and pain free movement of our patients.
