Understanding Knee Replacement:

Total knee replacement, also known as arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure that involves replacing a damaged knee joint with a new artificial implant (prosthesis). This procedure is commonly performed to address conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis. Annually, more than 50 million patients undergo total knee replacement surgery worldwide.

 

Types of Knee Replacement:

  • Total Knee Replacement (TKR)
  • Partial Knee Replacement (UKA)
  • Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement Surgery
  • Revision Knee Replacement Surgery

Symptoms Indicating Knee Replacement:

  • Common symptoms that may lead to knee replacement surgery include:
  • Chronic rheumatoid arthritis
  • Chronic osteoarthritis
  • Trauma
  • Chronic knee joint pain and swelling
  • Post-traumatic arthritis
  • Stiffness and redness around the joint

Risk Factors of Knee Replacement:

Risk factors associated with knee replacement surgery may include:

  • Risks related to anesthesia
  • Bleeding and blood clots
  • Infection
  • Temporary dizziness
  • Fracture or broken bone
  • Nerve damage

Preparation for Knee Replacement Surgery:

Preparing for knee replacement surgery includes:

Undergoing pre-surgery check-ups, such as blood tests, ECG, and echocardiogram for cardiac evaluation to assess fitness for surgery.

Signing a consent form before the operation, granting the surgeon permission to proceed with the treatment.

Informing the surgeon about any medications you are taking.

Admitting to the hospital on the day of the procedure on an empty stomach while fasting.

Discontinuing blood-thinning medications ten days before surgery after discussion with the doctor.

The cost of knee replacement surgery in India generally ranges from $6,000 to $6,500 USD. The cost varies depending on the patient's condition, quality of the implant, city, hospital, surgeon's qualifications, and experience.

Best Knee Replacement Procedures:

To identify the diagnosis, doctors may advise comprehensive evaluations, which typically include blood investigations, X-rays, CT scans, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The knee replacement procedure involves the following steps:

Step 1 - Anesthesia: Total knee replacement surgery typically takes 2 to 3 hours, with either local or general anesthesia administered to relieve pain.

Step 2 - The Incision: The surgeon makes an incision in the knee area, usually 8 to 10 inches long. In minimally invasive knee surgery, the incision is typically 4 to 6 inches. The damaged knee cartilage is removed and replaced with metal and plastic implant components designed to allow continued knee motion.

Step 3 - Closing the Incisions: The orthopaedic surgeon closes the incisions using sutures, skin adhesives, tapes, or clips.

Post-Procedure Care:

Post-surgery care includes:

Information from the doctor regarding recovery, incision care, medication management, and other post-operative instructions.

Removal of stitches or staples after 7 to 10 days.

Patients are encouraged to stand and walk using a walker after 48 hours of the operation. After one month, they can use a walking stick.

Patients should avoid sitting cross-legged or on the ground after surgery.

The recovery period may be around 6 weeks or longer.

Physiotherapy will be ongoing until muscle strength and a good range of motion are achieved.
