Centre Of Excellence In Total Knee Replacement
Total Knee Replacement, also known as Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA), is a joint surgical procedure to replace a damaged, impaired, or diseased knee with an artificial joint. It is usually a result of Arthritis - a degenerative joint disease that develops swelling and soreness of joints and makes it difficult to perform simple daily activities like walking, climbing, or running. It may even start to cause pain while sitting or resting. The knee is the largest joint that takes the entire weight of the whole body and, in turn, becomes more vulnerable to damage or injury.
Knee Arthroplasty is a reliable and effective procedure and can help in relieving pain in knees, correct leg deformity, and restore function in severely damaged knee joints. The damaged joint is removed and replaced by implants made of specialized plastic and metal materials. This implant gives a new and smooth surface to the joints.
TKA is one of the most popular and successful orthopaedic surgeries in today’s life. Patients have experienced reduced knee pain with improved mobility to do daily chores and move better after the surgery, which successively increased the chances of quality human life.
Other than Arthritis, the following health conditions can cause knee damage:
- Increased Body Mass Index
- Unusual Bone Growth
- Knee Deformity
- Cartilage Loss
Knee Replacement Surgery is major surgery and only recommended if the other treatment procedures like medications, physiotherapy, walking supports, or intra-articular injections have not eased the symptoms. “Knee Resurfacing” is another term given to this surgery as only the surface of the knee gets replaced after the surgery.
The basic steps involve:
- Removing damaged cartilage from the knee
- Replacing removed cartilage with implants
- Creating a smooth gliding surface by inserting a spacer for joint motion
Right before TKA Surgery, our doctors perform a complete medical evaluation of the knee to determine the risks to get optimal outcome and recovery after the surgery. MRI and Knee Radiograph are used to diagnose and assess the severity and alignment. The evaluation involves blood and urine tests, X-rays, physical examination, and medical history.
Pre-surgical and post-surgical rehabilitation exercises also contribute to better recovery after the surgery. Our orthopaedic surgeons recommend exercising regularly to restore strength, improve mobility, increase blood circulation to the legs to prevent blood clots, strengthen knee muscles, and enable movement. The exercises include proper walking, types of leg raise, knee range of movements, and mobility exercises.
Some of the preventive measures to keep in mind after Total Knee Replacement Surgery:
- Take medications on time to avoid blood clots.
- Use walkers or handrails during the initial weeks to provide proper balance.
- Exercise regularly to strengthen leg muscles.
- Avoid gaining weight and have good nutritional food.
- Notify the doctor of any immediate warning signs like fever, chills, increasing pain, swelling, numbness, and tenderness in the knee.
