There are various variations in knee joint replacement surgery depending upon the patient's age, requirement and medical condition of the joint.
- Total Knee Joint Replacement: Total Knee replacement is considered to be the best treatment for arthritis when all other conservative treatments have failed to relieve the patient of disabling knee pain.
- Hi Flex Knee Replacement: High flexion knee or full bend knee replacement allows bending to 155 degrees and is a boon to patientsseeking increased function after knee replacement. It allows activities after the surgery which require deep knee bend like stair climbing, squatting, kneeling, gardening etc. This degree of high flexion is achieved by selecting the right patient (not every patient is a candidate for hi-flex knee),implant design, surgery technique and rigorous physiotherapy.
- Minimally invasive quadriceps (sparing total knee replacement): This technique also known quadriceps- sparing knee replacement allows surgeons to insert the same knee replacement implants through a shorter incision that avoids any kind of trauma to the quadriceps muscles. Unlike the conventional surgery, where the incision is about 7-8" long, minimally invasive surgery is done through an incision which is 3-4" long, resulting in quick recovery. The patients are able to walk as early as third day after the surgery.
- Partial Knee Replacement (Uni-condylar or Uni-compartmental): Uni-compartmental knee is an option for a small percentage of people suffering from osteoarthritis of a part of the knee joint. In a uni-compartmental knee replacement, only the damaged compartment is replaced with metal and plastic.
- Total hip replacement: Hip replacement is the tested and proven operation in elderly patients over 60. THR is also the preferred treatment for femoral neck fracture in this age group. THR is advised as the golden standard for hip arthritis in patients older than 60 years, advanced hip destruction and altered anatomy of the hip joint.
- Hip Resurfacing: Hip resurfacing (also called hip arthroplasty) involves replacing the damaged surfaces of the hip joint with metal implants to improve mobility and reduce pain in the hip joint.
