One of the major health problems which are being faced by Indian people is problem related to legs. There is little or no movement due to the changed lifestyle of the people. Knee replacement especially in the old people is one of the most common problems faced in India. There are various types of surgeries that can be done to get the knee replaced.
Some of the ways to get your knee replaced in India are:
- Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement (MIS)
This is the type of knee replacement surgery in which knee replacement is done using an incision that is half the length of the standard size of the knee. This technique helps in reducing the pain and blood loss and there is a comparatively speedy recovery observed.
- Computer Assisted Surgery (CAS)
This is a type of knee replacement surgery in which computer is used by the surgeon to align the knee components with the bones more precisely. An imagery guided by the computer is used which can help increase the longevity of the replaced joint.
- Bilateral Knee Replacement
This type of knee replacement surgery is when both the knees undergo the same type of surgery by any method. It is done when both the knees are suffering from decreased mobility and damaged cartilage.
- Custom Fit Total Knee Replacement (CFKR)
This is one of the best types of knee replacement in India in which CT/MRI of the patient’s knee is taken for getting a three dimensional bone model. The images help in understanding the size of the implant needed and they are sent to US through software. Customised surgical instruments are made for this type of knee implant surgery.
- Revision Knee Replacement
Revision Knee replacement is a type of knee replacement surgery that can be repeated several times depending on the requirement. When a knee joint which has already been through surgery is damaged, revision knee replacement is done.
- Partial Knee Replacement
Partial knee replacement, also known as Uni compartment knee replacement is a type of surgery in which the arthritic portion of the knee including the cartilage and bone are removed. It is done only when just one part of the knee compartment is severely damaged while the other parts are working well.
