Knee Replacement Surgery in Kanpur

Knee Replacement

Knee replacement surgery replaces all or some of your knee joints. Your orthopedic doctor in Kanpur (haddi ke doctor) will replace damaged cartilage and bone with a prosthetic joint. It can take up to a year to recover fully after a knee replacement, but you can resume some of your usual activities gradually as you heal.

What is knee replacement surgery?

A knee replacement is a surgery to replace all or some of your knee joints. It’s a type of method called arthroplasty (joint replacement).

An orthopedic doctor in Kanpur (haddi ke doctor) will remove damaged parts of your natural knee joint and replace them with an artificial joint made of metal and plastic.

Types of knee replacement

Your orthopedic doctor in Kanpur (haddi ke doctor) will recommend either a total or partial knee replacement:

Total knee replacement

Total knee replacement is the most typical type of knee replacement. Your orthopaedic surgeons will replace all three areas of your knee joint — the inside, outside, and under your kneecap.

Partial knee replacement

A partial knee replacement is just what it sounds like. Your orthopedic doctor in Kanpur (haddi ke doctor) will only replace some areas of your knee joint — usually if only one or two areas are damaged. Partial knee replacements are more typical in younger adults who’ve experienced an injury or trauma.

What diseases are treated with a knee replacement?

An orthopedic doctor in Kanpur (haddi ke doctor) might recommend knee replacement if you have intense symptoms that don’t get better after trying nonsurgical treatments, including:

  1. Joint pain.
  2. Stiffness.
  3. Trouble moving your knee
  4. Swelling.

Arthritis is the most typical condition that causes people to need knee replacement surgery. Most people who prefer to have a knee replacement have osteoarthritis, but some people with rheumatoid arthritis may need one, too.

It’s rare, but an orthopedic doctor in Kanpur might suggest knee replacement if you’ve experienced a bone fracture in your knee that causes post-traumatic arthritis after you’ve experienced a:

  1. Car accident.
  2. Fall.
  3. Sports injury.

What happens during a knee replacement?

On the day of your surgery, you’ll receive anesthesia to numb your body and your orthopedic doctor in Kanpur (haddi ke doctor) will make sure you don’t feel any pain. An anesthesiologist will give you either general anesthesia to put you to sleep during your surgery or regional anesthesia to numb you from the waist down.

During a knee replacement, your orthopedic doctor in Kanpur (haddi ke doctor) will:

  1. Remove injured cartilage and bone.
  2. Insert the prosthetic knee joint.
  3. Insert a plastic spacer that recreates the smooth cushion of your damaged or removed cartilage.
  4. Reshape your kneecap to fit the new prosthetic knee joint (if needed).

When can I drive after a Total Knee Replacement surgery?

You may be able to drive two to four weeks after your operation, or even earlier, depending on your general health, mobility, the range of movement of your replaced Knee, and muscle strength. If your left Knee has been operated on and you are driving an automatic car, you may start going in about two weeks. But if you are driving a manual car, then you should ideally wait for about four weeks after surgery.

How should I sleep at night to keep my knee safe?

Placing a pillow between your legs should help you to keep your knee comfortable and stable. You may sleep on your back or either side, depending on what makes you most comfortable.

Is there much preparation before surgery?

Before surgery, you must have a physical exam and pre admission testing, participate in preoperative education classes, and prepare your home for when you return after surgery.

Can I avoid the surgery?

If the patient has intense arthritis, which has caused bending of the knee, deformity, and problem in walking, It is not advisable to avoid the surgery because the pain would become worse, and your activity (standing, walking, outdoor work) will become less & less over some time.

What are the ways I can avoid or delay the surgery?

By reducing weight and doing regular knee exercises, we can reduce the pain, and we can avoid the operation for a few weeks or months. You cannot permanently prevent it if the knees are severely deformed or painful.

Can I sit on the floor?

60-70% of patients can sit on the floor if they exercise regularly and achieve a range of movement beyond 125 degrees.
