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
- Hemophilic knee
- Neuropathic knee
Knee arthrodesis is done with intra medullary rods or external fixators.
