Why Total Knee Replacement?
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.
What happens during a Total Knee Replacement?
A TKR is performed by an orthopedic 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.
What happens after a Total Knee Replacement?
After Total Knee Replacement, the patient is monitored closely for a few days. Under the guidance of Kamineni Hospitals’ team of orthopedic 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.
Why Total Hip Replacement?
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.
