Knee replacement surgery : Let's start moving

Total knee replacement is a common orthopaedic procedure which is used to replace the damaged or worn out surfaces of the knee. Replacing these surfaces with an implant or prosthesis will relieve pain and increase mobility, allowing everyday activities to be pain free. Lately, invasive knee replacement in India has evolved with time and is one of the easy pain relieving procedure when compared to the traditional methods.

The traditional approach to knee replacement makes use of a long vertical incision at the centre of the knee to view and make changes in the joint. Invasive knee replacement is an alteration of this approach. The surgeon uses a shorter incision and a different, less-invasive technique to expose the joint, with the goal of reducing postoperative pain and speedy recovery.

What happens during invasive knee replacement?

In invasive knee replacement, the surgical procedure is similar to that of total knee replacement, but there is less cutting of the tissue surrounding the knee. Also, specially designed surgical instruments are used to make the femur and tibia ready and to place the implants properly. The invasive knee replacement procedure is performed through a comparatively short incision of 4 to 6 inches which is less when compared to 8 to 10 inches for traditional knee replacement. A smaller incision allows less tissue disturbance. In addition to a shorter incision, the technique which is used to open the knee is less invasive. As the techniques used to expose the joints involve less disruption to the muscles, it will lead to less postoperative pain and reduced recovery time.

Who can have an invasive knee replacement?                                    

Invasive knee replacement is not suitable for all the patients. The doctor will conduct a thorough evaluation and will consider several factors before determining if the procedure is an option for the patient or no. Generally, the patients for invasive procedures are not obese, younger, healthier, stronger and more motivated to actively participate in the rehabilitation process, when compared to patients who have to undergo the traditional surgery. Invasive surgeries are not suitable for patients who are overweight or who have already undergone other knee surgeries. Also the patients who have some significant deformities in the knee, those who are too muscular and those with health problems that slow down the wound healing process are at a higher risk for problems from invasive knee replacement.

Effective Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Any type of joint replacement involves a surgery to replace the ends of bones in a damaged joint. This surgery will create new joint surfaces.

In a shoulder replacement surgery, the doctors will replace the ends of the damaged upper arm bone and the shoulder bone or cover them with artificial surfaces lined with only plastic or metal and plastic.

What to Expect After Surgery?
Right after the surgery, the patient will be administered with antibiotics and medicines to prevent blood clots for a day. Most of the people go home after one or two days after the surgery. A physiotherapist will help with exercises to move the arm and to keep the shoulder loose. Rehab will typically continue for up to three weeks after the patient leaves the hospital until the patient is able to function more independently and has recovered as much strength, endurance, and mobility in the shoulder.

Why is it done?
Joint replacement surgery is recommended only when the shoulder pain and loss of function become very severe and when medicines and other treatments no longer relieve the intense pain. The doctor will use X-rays to look at the bones and cartilage in the shoulder to see whether they are damaged and to make sure that the pain isn't coming from somewhere else.

How well it works?
Most of the people have experienced lesser pain after a shoulder replacement surgery and are able to do many of their daily activities more easily and comfortably.
  • The shoulder will not move exactly the way it did before having shoulder problems. But, the surgery will allow the patient to do more of the routine activities without pain.
  • After surgery, the patient may be allowed to resume sporting activities such as golfing, riding a bike, swimming, walking for exercise, dancing or any other sports.

Treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis

A chronic case of arthritis, the rheumatoid arthritis, is an inflammatory disorder that initially affects the joints and spreads to other body systems. In addition to joints, the other parts affected by this disease are eyes, skin, lungs, blood vessels and heart.Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto immune disorder, that occurs when the immune system mistakes the body tissues to be a foreign body and attacks it. The tissues affected is usually the ones lining the membranes around the joints. The joints affected by this disease appear red and swollen with severe pain during movement. The inflammation that develops around the joint, thickens the membrane effectively destroying the bone and cartilage with time.

The disease is not linked to heredity but a history of rheumatoid arthritis in the family makes you susceptible to the factors leading to the disease. In other words, you are at a greater risk than a normal person. Age, smoking, obesity, environmental exposures to certain kind of metals like asbestos are some factors associated with the disease. Studies show that women are at greater risk of contracting the disease than men.
A case of rheumatoid arthritis can be diagnosed by conducting blood and imaging tests. Blood tests look for the rheumatoid factor, anti-CCP antibodies and an elevated rate of C-reactive protein. X-rays, ultra sounds and MRI scans help to track the progress and severity of the disease.
The treatment for this disease involves medications, physiotherapy, surgical treatments, arthroplasty (surgery replacing the damage part), arthroscopy (surgery with the help of small tubes to remove the damaged tissue) and joint replacement. The treatment is progressive over time and involves a rehabilitation process also.With a motto of ‘wholesome care at affordable price’, Kasturi Multispecialty Hospital, Secunderabad, Telangana offers state of the art infrastructure and advanced treatment in orthopaedic, gynaecology and other allied specialties.
