Title: knee replacement in jaipur (1)

  • Osteoarthritis usually starts in late fourth
    decade but inflammatory arthritis appears
    earlier. Wearing out of the smooth lining of
    articular cartilage and exposure of bone
    underneath is arthritis. With progressive damage
    there is increased pain, stiffness, loss of range
    of motion, swelling and instability. Arthritis
    can develop because of old age, previous injury,
    birth defects, fracture, diseases like rheumatoid
    arthritis, etc.

Total Knee Replacement
  • In modern total knee replacement surgery, only
    the worn out cartilage surfaces of the joint are
    replaced.The entire knee is not actually
    replaced. The operation is basically a
    resurfacing (or retread) procedure. On
    resurfaced area, hip or knee joints made up of
    specialized alloy metal and ultra high density
    polyethylene (UHDP) plastic are placed.

Revision Joint Replacement Surgery
  • Modern joint replacement surgery and the
    prostheses used in these surgeries are a mature
    technology, with many advancements over the past
    several decades. However, despite the wide
    success and excellent outcomes, nearly all
    artificial joints can be expected to wear out
    after enough time and wear. Joint replacement
    surgery is analogous to repairing the moving
    parts of a car, then sealing the engine
    compartment and achieving decades of 16 hours of
    daily use without lifting the hood again!

Total Hip Replacement
  • Hip replacement, also called total hip
    arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace
    a worn out or damaged hip with a prosthesis (an
    artificial joint). This surgery may be considered
    following a hip fracture (breaking of the bone)
    or for someone who has severe pain due to
    arthritis. AVN arthritis affects young patients
    in India and may require THR at young age.
    Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease that
    affects mostly middle-aged and older adults, may
    cause the breakdown of joint cartilage and
    adjacent bone in the hips.
