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.
My goal is to restore your mobilty and flexiblity by knee replacement surgery. I have performed knee replacement surgery in complicated cases like obesity, renal failure, fused knees, difficult cases and failed procedures done elsewhere.
Total knee replacement is the permanent solution in patients with advanced damage and who have not responded to conservative treatment. In some patients with lesser damage, I offer Cartilage repair and joint preservation. These procedures have the potential to heal early damage. I assess your eligibility for these by clinical exam and investigations. To get an appointment, contact us. I also offer these knee surgery procedures . See here for joint preservation procedures and here for stem cell treatments.
I only use those implants which are backed by evidence and top the list in joint registries. I routinely use high flex knee replacement. If you are a woman, you will feel more comfortable with the Gender specific knee replacement . If wear is limited to one part of the knee alone, a partial knee replacement will do. If you need a knee replacement in young age, I use durable knees. I was the first to introduce the Oxinium knee in India. See the video testimonial of the first recipient here. I also introduced the Journey, Visionaire and Verilast CR knees in Chennai.
1. An Osteotomy can relieve pain in suitable patients with uni-compartmental arthritis.
Technological advances -
1. I use the I Assist smart tool to get perfect alignment. Smart tools enable me to align implants accurately in complicated cases and young patients. There is a positive correlation between alignment and survival. I was the first surgeon to use the I Assist smart tool in Chennai.
2. When your primary replacement has failed, I offer revision surgery. Listen to a patient story here.
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 fourth day.
Support services - The hospitals have accommodation 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.
