We excel in all the types of surgical replacement/reconstruction of a knee/hip joint with an artificial prosthesis, to rectify the severe damage or wear and tear. Our Orthopedic team performs a thorough evaluation of the patient's medical history, perform a physical examination, and order imaging tests to determine the extent of joint damage. We develop a personalized treatment plan based on the patient's individual needs, medical history, and lifestyle. Post-surgery, a rehabilitation program is chalked out to help patient recover and regain mobility and function.
Joint replacement surgery involves the removal of the damaged or arthritic joint and replacing it with a prosthetic joint.
We are a cut above the rest in all the three types of hip and knee joint replacement/reconstruction procedures. i.e. Primary, complex primary and revision joint replacement.
Primary joint replacement/reconstruction: This surgery is performed by our doctors when a joint is severely damaged or arthritic. In primary joint replacement/reconstruction, the damaged joint is replaced with a prosthetic joint. The surgeons remove the damaged cartilage and bone and then insert the prosthetic joint into the joint cavity.
Total Hip Replacement: This procedure involves replacing the ball-and-socket joint of the hip with artificial components made of metal, plastic, or ceramic.
Total Knee Replacement: This procedure involves replacing the ends of the femur and tibia with metal components and a plastic spacer in between.
Complex primary joint replacement/reconstruction: When the joint damage is more severe, our doctors may decide to choose a complex primary replacement of knee or hip joint It may involve replacing more than one joint or addressing bone deformities, bone loss, or soft tissue injuries. This type of joint replacement is necessary for patients with conditions such as severe arthritis, avascular necrosis, or joint deformities. We have a team of experienced orthopedic surgeon, as well as a team of healthcare professionals who expertise in complex primary joint replacement.Complex primary joint replacement surgeries include total hip replacement with extensive bone loss or deformity, total knee replacement with ligament deficiencies, or total shoulder replacement with severe rotator cuff tears.
Revision joint replacement/reconstruction: This type of surgery is performed in patients who have already undergone joint replacement surgery, but have experienced complications or failure of the initial joint replacement. We have a team of skilled surgeons who remove the old prosthetic joint and replace it with a new one. Revision joint replacement is a more complex procedure than primary joint replacement, and the surgeons need to use specialized implants or techniques to address the damaged bone or tissue.
The procedure involves the use of specialized surgical tools, including bone saws, drills, and prosthetic joint components. The surgeon makes an incision over the affected joint and carefully removes any damaged or worn components, before preparing the surrounding bone for the new implant.
The new implant may be affixed to the bone using specialized cement, or may be designed to integrate with the surrounding bone over time through a process called osseointegration. In some cases, the surgeon may also need to repair or replace other structures within the joint, such as ligaments or tendons, to ensure proper function and stability.
Surgery is followed by a period of physical therapy and rehabilitation to help restore range of motion and strength to the affected joint.
