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. Total knee replacement is also available for young patients too. In them I use durable implants and techniques. Knee replacement surgery is very safe in elderly patients too.
I routinely use high flexion knee implants which restore full mobility. If you are a woman, the Gender specific knee replacement will feel more comfortable. If the damage is restricted to one part only, you may just need a partial knee replacement. 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. Oxidized zirconium is one such.
Techniques- I use both conventional and smart tool techniques. Examples of smart tools are I-Assist, PSI and computer navigation. Smart tool techniques enable me to position the implant accurately. The latest method is the I Assist smart tool. This has several advantages. These are better alignment, reduced operating time, less bleeding & infection risk. These are not needed in routine cases but can be extremely useful in difficult primary cases and young patients. I routinely use a minimally invasive approach. See an example of a minimal invasive incision here. When your existing implant has failed, I offer revision knee replacement.
Biomedical solutions like Autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) and stem cell induced cartilage regenration (MCIC) are performed for selected patients. Patients above sixty are not suited for cartilage regeneration procedures.
An osteotomy can be a knee replacement alternative in middle aged patients with uni compartmental arthritis and significant deformity. External fixation may be an option in the elderly patient.
Costs- My cost is competitive. The total cost depends on your choice of implant and hospital room. The best way to know your cost is to discuss your requirements with me in person. However rest assured that my cost will be competitive. International patients can get a quote here. Indian patients can get a quote here.
