Knee replacement surgery in India

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.

The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and takes about 2-3 hours. An 8-12 inch incision is made in the front of the knee and the surgeon cuts the damaged knee bone and cartilage and replaces it with an artificial joint made of alloys or high grade polymers. The artificial joint is attached to the femur or thigh bone with special material.
