A joint is where two or more bones meet, like the knee, hip and elbow. When these bones and joints are damaged due to disease or wear and tear, a joint replacement surgery is required. Joint replacement involves removing a damaged joint and placing a prosthetic joint implant instead. Replacing a joint can relieve pain, improve your mobility and significantly enhance your quality of life. Hips and knees are the most often replaced joints.
The knee joint can be damaged by arthritis, trauma, and other diseases. This can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling. With continuous wear and tear, the damage inside a joint can limit blood flow to the bone impairing the bone’s ability to regenerate. At this stage, a knee replacement surgery becomes necessary.
A TKR is performed by an orthopaedic surgeon. The surgeon skillfully removes the diseased portions of the bone. He then shapes the joint to fit and place the knee implant. A knee implant can be made of metal, plastic, ceramic or a mix of such materials. There are numerous implants of varying quality, functioning and longevity. The choice of implant lies with the patient and the treating surgeon. A unilateral TKR surgery takes around 2 hours provided there are no unforeseen complications.
After Total Knee Replacement, the patient is monitored closely for a few days. Under the guidance of Kamineni Hospitals’ team of orthopaedic physiotherapists, the patient undergoes multiple weeks of therapy to improve circulation, increase movement and strengthen muscles.
Every physiotherapy regimen is personalized and closely monitored by a team of experts to ensure comprehensive recovery.
The hip joint is one of the largest joints in the body. It is a ball and socket joint and can be damaged by arthritis, accidents or other conditions. This can cause pain, stiffness, impaired movement and swelling. With continuous wear and tear, the damaged joint can seriously impair mobility, causing unbearable pain while walking. At this stage, a hip replacement surgery becomes necessary.
A Total Hip Replacement is performed by an orthopaedic surgeon. The surgeon removes the painful hip joint and replaces it with an artificial implant. The hip implant can be made of metal, plastic, ceramic or a mix of such materials. There are numerous implants of varying quality, functioning and longevity. The choice of implant lies with the patient and the treating surgeon.
After Total Hip Replacement, the patient is monitored closely for a few days. The patient may be confined to the bed and catheterized to reduce motion and help the new joint settle. The patient may be prohibited from twisting the leg for up to a year after hip replacement surgery. Physical therapy may begin after a day or two, at the discretion of the orthopaedic surgeon.
Kamineni Hospitals provides multiple weeks of physical therapy to improve movement and strengthen muscles for patients recovering from Total Hip Replacement. Patients undergo personalized physical therapy under the guidance of skilled physiotherapists. Following successful physical rehabilitation, a patient can expect relief from pain and slowly regain ease at walking.
