Total Knee Replacement
Knee replacement surgery has been around for more than 60 years, and in that time has improved to such an extent that today 10-year success rates are in excess of 90%. At Aster, a total of x total knee replacement surgeries have been performed over y years. In the total knee replacement surgery, the entire joint is removed and replaced with an artificial joint.
There are three compartments to a knee, the medial (along the inside), the lateral (along the outside), and the patellofemoral (the front between kneecap and thighbone). If two or more compartments are damaged, then a total knee replacement is generally performed. It is also performed if there is a deformity caused by long-term arthritis or if the ligament is unstable.
Partial Knee Replacement
Sometimes only a single compartment of the knee is affected and there is no other serious damage to the knee. An example is that of a patient who has had the cartilage or meniscus removed due to an injury or complication in childhood. In such cases, a partial knee replacement can be done. At Aster, a total of x partial knee replacement surgeries have been performed over the past y years.
The partial knee replacement is done in an outpatient setting and is less invasive, heals quickly, and the patients also report a more natural feeling of movement. The recovery time is also cut in half of that of total knee replacement and people resume their normal activities in as little as 3 to 4 weeks.
The patellofemoral replacement is a type of partial knee replacement in which the patellofemoral section of the knee is resurfaced. Because the intervention happens through a small incision, there is zero to very little damage to the soft tissues in the knees. There is also lesser blood loss and reduced pain and swelling.
Similar to the other partial knee replacement methods, those who undergo patellofemoral replacement can return to performing normal activities in the span of a few weeks. Movement also feels more natural than a total knee replacement.
Total Hip Replacement
In total hip replacement, the damaged hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant, referred to as a hip prosthesis. Total hip replacement surgery is recommended when the patient has difficulty performing day-to-day activities such as walking or bending or when the hip pain continues while resting. In Aster, a total of x total hip replacements have been performed over y years.
Most people who undergo hip replacement surgery at Aster have experienced a dip in the levels of pain and the ability to perform normal activities without any interruptions. Patients are advised to return to normal activities a bit more slowly after hip replacement. Excessive activity or being overweight can cause more than normal wear and tear, which can affect the success of the procedure.

How do I know if I need arthroplasty?
You may need arthroplasty if you have severe joint pain or stiffness that limits your ability to perform daily activities. Your doctor may recommend arthroplasty if other treatments such as medication or physical therapy have not been effective in relieving your symptoms.
What are the risks associated with arthroplasty?
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with arthroplasty, including infection, blood clots, and nerve damage. Our team takes all necessary precautions to minimize these risks and ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.
What type of anesthesia is used for arthroplasty?
Most arthroplasty procedures are performed under general anesthesia, which means you will be asleep during the surgery. In some cases, local anesthesia or regional anesthesia may be used to numb the area around the joint.
How do I prepare for an arthroplasty procedure?
Your doctor will provide you with specific instructions on how to prepare for your arthroplasty procedure. This may include restrictions on eating or drinking before the surgery, as well as instructions on any medications you should avoid taking.
What is the recovery process like after arthroplasty?
Recovery times vary depending on the type of arthroplasty procedure you undergo. Generally, patients will need to participate in physical therapy and rehabilitation exercises to regain mobility and strength in the joint. Our team will work closely with you to develop a customized recovery plan that meets your needs and goals.
How long does an arthroplasty procedure take?
The length of an arthroplasty procedure varies depending on the type and complexity of the surgery. In general, most procedures take between 1-3 hours to complete.
How long do the results of arthroplasty last?
