Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement (TKR) as the name suggests is a surgical procedure where the natural but worn out (arthritic) knee joint is replaced by an artificial knee prosthesis.

Recognized as one of the most successful procedures in all of medicine, well over one lakh people undergo knee replacement surgery each year in India alone. Many of these are performed at Zoi’s orthopedic hospital.

Your orthopedic surgeon at Zoi’s clinic will provide expert, coordinated care for knee surgery which can help you reduce or eliminate pain and discomfort, allow easier movement and get you back on your feet

Why get a TKR?

As you age, you may notice pain, stiffness, swelling in one or both knees, which can be the result of natural wear and tear. What happens is the protective coating between your bones (cartilage) wears out, making even the most routine movements a painful experience due to rubbing of the exposed surfaces with each other.

If left untreated, a painful condition called osteoarthritis may arise. This leads to bone deterioration as well as pain and inflammation, which results in restricted movement.

Our orthopedic doctors will provide you with a thorough examination and diagnosis so that if a procedure is needed, you will understand your options. You will be scheduled for surgery only if all other traditional measures such as exercise, physical therapy and or medications fail to improve your condition.

If you are a candidate for surgery, an orthopedic doctor will determine the best type of implant for you

The following implant options are available:

  • Cobalt chromium
  • Allergy solution (gold coated)
  • Patient specific implants (PSI)
  • Gender-specific implants

This procedure includes giving a combined spinal epidural anaesthesia under sterile conditions. The worn out ends of the bones are cut and replaced with artificial implants to bring the knee into straight position.

Once discharged, a physiotherapist will follow-up with you at home to help you through the process of rehabilitation and suggest changes to be made at home

After completion of the procedure, you will be under the care of the intensivist, operating orthopedic surgeon, physical therapist and dietician. Pain control measures are started immediately and gradual rehabilitation towards recovery is supervised by the team to ensure that you are discharged in a stable condition by the end of third or fourth day of your hospital stay.

You will be required to follow up with your orthopedist at the end of two weeks, one month later and then one year later from the date of surgery.
