Flexible Knee replacement gives you extra bending to permit kneeling & squatting. Which procedure is best for you?

Knee replacement is a permanent solution when you have tried other options. I offer total knee replacement. The ideal age for a knee replacement is 65. If you are younger, a knee replacement alternative may be an option. See here, here and here.
Total knee replacement is also available for young patients. In them I use durable implants and techniques.
Knee replacement surgery is very safe in elderly patients too.

I routinely use high flexion knees which restore full mobility. 

If you are a woman, the Gender specific knee replacement will feel very comfortable.

If the damage is restricted to one part only, a partial  knee replacement may suffice.
If you have developed arthritis in young age, durable solutions are available. These durable joints can last for 30 years thus saving you a revision.

For those with metal allergy, non allergenic implants are available.

Techniques- I use conventional techniques and smart tools. One such tool is patient specific instruments (PSI).  These  techniques enable me to position the implant accurately. Patient specific instrumentation (custom fit knee) has several advantages like better alignment, reduced operating time, less bleeding & infection risk. Other methods are computer assisted surgery with traditional and personalized navigation. These are used in difficult cases with mal-united fractures.

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS)- I routinely use a minimally invasive approach.  See an example of a minimal invasive incision here.

When your existing implant has failed, revision knee replacement is performed.

Biomedical solution like Autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) is  reserved for young patients.
An osteotomy may be indicated in malaligned legs.

Costs are calculated on the base of  implant, accommodation, hospital and individual case.
