Introduction
  • For old and young patients suffering from
    arthritis or knee problems, total or partial knee
    replacement surgery is the most feasible options
    nowadays. While for some group of patients,
    partial knee replacement is the only option,
    whereas for others total knee replacement can be
    the last resort.

Differences between the partial and the total
knee replacement
  • Benefits of total knee replacement include that
    most of the patients become more flexible after
    this operation. The patients must remember that
    depending on the affected portion of the knees,
    they should go for partial or total knee
    replacements.
  • According to Dr Niraj Vora, a renowned knee
    replacement specialist in Mumbai, partial knee
    replacement is required when parts of a knee or
    ligament are affected by arthritis.
  • In case of a full knee replacement method, the
    ligament needs to be balanced very easily, but in
    case of partial knee replacement surgery, only a
    single chamber of the knee is resurfaced, and the
    patients can also get back their earlier life,
    and they can squat, or even kneel down.
  • Dr Vora is one of the most popular knee
    resurfacing doctors in India, and so he
    understands the exact requirements of patients
    suffering from gout, arthritis or weakening of
    the cartilages.
  • It is also a fact that, if a part of the
    cartilage or the meniscus is operated or damaged
    during the infant years of a person, then partial
    knee replacement surgery can prove immensely
    helpful to him/her.

Some important points to remember before opting
for total knee replacement
  • Benefits of total knee replacement surgery cannot
    be avoided, as it often allows the patient to
    carry a prosthetic leg.
  • The new joint that is attached to the knees after
    the surgery, allows the patient to move about
    like before, and the bones are also saved from
    getting chaffed and disintegrated.
  • Knee replacement surgery recovery time can vary
    from person to person, but usually as the patient
    begins to recover within few weeks, the doctors
    can discharge him/her.
  • There are certain restrictions with regard to
    taking showers, exercises, lifting heavy weights,
    and also regarding driving. The concerned
    specialist must be consulted for immediate
    effects and any sort of complications.
