Has your knee replacement failed many times? A knee arthrodesis in India is the final operation to give a stable but stiff knee. I perform this procedure for failed infected knee replacements. These are becomingly increasingly common with the rise in number of failed knee replacements.
The indications for an arthrodesis are
Failed knee replacement,
Tumours involving the articular ends,
Infections with severe chondral loss.
Loss of extensor apparatus
Knee arthrodesis is done with intra medullary rods or external fixators.
