I am a Joint replacement surgery specialist in Chennai, India.
My advanced training, focused approach and continuing education
ensure high standards and quality of care for my patients
Durable implants and smart tools extend the life of a knee replacement
in young patients. Several young patients have got a
new lease of mobility.
A minimal invasive and full bending Knee replacement offers considerable
advantages over conventional methods. As a result of increased
mobility, patients are able to enjoy activities which require kneeling
and sitting cross legged.
The goal of these procedures is to allow patients to enjoy the use of
their natural knee by several years, postpone a knee replacement and
avoid a revision surgery.
A revision surgery is required when your primary hip and knee replacement
has failed. Joint replacements fail due to several reasons.
Why me ?
My goal is to restore your mobilty and flexiblity. I have performed knee replacements in complicated cases like obesity, renal failure, fused knees, neglected fractures and failed operations from elsewhere. I am able to work with you to provide a customized solution for your needs.
Knee surgery choices- Total Knee replacement is the permanent treatment after exhausting non-surgical options. I offer this and other knee surgery procedures customized to your requirement. For those patients unable or unwilling to get a permanent surgical solution, I offer non operative temporary measures like bracing, injections and biomedical solutions.
I only use those implants which have a good standing in joint registries and are backed by experimental evidence. I routinely use implants that give full bending. If you are a woman, the Gender specific knee replacement will feel more comfortable. If wear is limited to one part of the knee alone, a partial knee replacement is the logical answer. If you have developed arthritis in young age, a durable knee which last for 30 years is available. I was the first to introduce durable Oxinium implants in this region in November 2008. See the video testimonial of the first recepient here. I introduced the Journey, Visionaire and Verilast CR knees in Chennai. I was the first surgeon to use the Orthoglide interpositional arthroplasty in Tamil nadu in April 2012.
1. I began using the I Assist smart tool in Aug 2014. I started using Visionaire patient specific instruments in January 2012. Smart tools enable one to align implants accurately. There is a correlation between perfect alignment and durability of implants. They are particularly useful in young patients & difficult cases. I was the first surgeon to use the I Assist smart tool with the Gender specific and Verilast knees.
Anesthesia and pain relief - The single factor preventing patients from seeking surgery is fear of pain. Our pain relief protocol minmizes post operative pain and allows early discharge. Listen to a patient story here. My patients have very little post op pain, eat normally, walk soon and go home by the fifth day.
Support services- The hospitals have accomodation to suit all pockets. Services of all specialists are available round the clock. You begin the evaluation by consulting specialists who are going to be involved in your care. Microbiology support is available while dealing with infected joints. I work with an independent radiologist interested in musculo skeletal radiology. My dedicated physical therapist will help you regain full function with the latest protocol.

Smart tools like I-Assist and PSI are of great value in difficult cases and young patients.
The High flex knee ( High Flexion Knee) is a boon to patients seeking increased function after a TKR.
Patients with symptomatic partial knee arthritis may benefit from a partial knee replacement.
Revision means that the previous implant has failed and replaced with another new one.
Watch real knee operations and learn about our techniques.
A high tibial osteotomy is a joint preservation procedure that will extend the use of your own knee by several years.
