Title: Knee Replacement In India - Cost, Hospitals, Surgeons - Lyfboat


1
Knee Replacement
2
What is Knee Replacement
  • Knee replacement is a surgical procedure to
    replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee
    joint to relieve pain and disability. It is most
    commonly

performed for osteoarthritis, and also for other
knee diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and
psoriatic arthritis.

BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
  • Your doctor may recommend that you take
    antibiotics before and after the surgery to
    reduce the risk of infection. If you need any
    major dental work, your doctor may recommend that
    you have it done before the surgery. Infections
    can spread from other parts of the body, such as
    the mouth, to the artificial joint and cause a
    serious problem.

How it is performed

HOW IT IS PERFORMED
Once you are under general anaesthesia (meaning
you are temporarily put to sleep) or
spinal/epidural anaesthesia (numb below the
waist), an 8- to 12-inch cut is made in the front
of the knee. The damaged part of the joint is
removed from the surface of the bones, and the
surfaces are then shaped to hold a metal or
plastic artificial joint. The artificial joint is
attached to the thigh bone, shin and knee cap
either with cement or a special material. When
fit together, the attached artificial parts form
the joint, relying on the surrounding muscles and
ligaments for support and function.

Recovery
  • The average hospital stay after knee joint
    replacement is usually three to five days. The
    vast majority of people who undergo knee joint
    replacement surgery have dramatic improvement.
    This improvement is most notable one month or
    more after surgery. The pain caused by the
    damaged joint is relieved when the new gliding
    surface is constructed during surgery. After knee
    joint replacement, people are standing and moving
    the joint the day after surgery. At first, you
    may walk with the help of parallel bars, and then
    a walking device - such as crutches, walker, or
    cane - will be used until your knee is able to
    support your full body weight. After about six
    weeks, most people are walking comfortably with
    minimal assistance.

Potential Risks
  • As with any surgery, knee replacement surgery
    carries risks. For knee replacement surgery,
    these risks are low. They include
  • Infection
  • Blood clots in the leg vein or lungs
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Nerve damage
