Total Knee Replacement is very rewarding surgery for advance arthritis of knee joint. Osteoarthritis of the knee joint is a progressive degenerative disease due to the aging process leading to pain, difficulty in walking & deformities. Knee can also get damaged due to other problems such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Post Traumatic Arthritis, or any infection causing damage to the cartilage of the Knee joint. In the initial stages of arthritis medicines, physiotherapy can help but in advanced stages of arthritis, only knee replacement can work.

What are the Indications of Total Knee Replacement?

Total Knee Replacement is required for cases with advanced arthritis of the Knee Joint. The
most common cause is Osteoarthritis of the knee joint which is worn & tears happening in
the Knee joint due to the aging process. Other indication includes Rheumatoid Arthritis or
Arthritis due to damage to the Knee Joint following infection or Trauma.

Who needs Total Knee Replacement?

Early arthritis of the Knee Joint can be managed with exercises, medicines & physiotherapy. But if the arthritis is in an advanced stage where the patient is having difficulty in walking or having pain even at rest then Knee replacement is needed. Further, if there is a deformity in the legs or the patient is having instability there also Knee replacement is needed.

What is done in Total Knee Replacement?

Total Knee Replacement involves replacing the damaged cartilage at the end of bones with Artificial Knee components. The collateral ligaments are preserved as they are needed for the stability of the Knee Joint.

Can both Knees be replaced at the same time?

If the patient is having problems in both his knees and is medically fit after being examined by the physician & anesthetist, then both knees can be replaced together.

When can a patient walk after Total Knee Replacement?

Nowadays Total knee Replacements( TKR ) are performed with MIS ( Minimally Invasive Technique) with the latest implants. This leads to post-operative surgical pain & very quick recovery. The patient is made to walk from next day onwards with the help of a walker. By the time patient is discharged ( usually 3-5 days) he can ambulate on his own with the help of a walker. Gradually with exercises patient progresses to walking with a cane and then without any support in 3-6 weeks.

When can I lead a normal life after Total Knee Replacement?

Usually, by 2 months a Knee Replacement patient can start doing household chores like cooking, can go for gentle walks, and driving. The person can lead an almost normal life for 4-5 months. There are usually some restrictions after Knee replacements such as sitting cross-legged or squatting on the floor. Patients are allowed sports like swimming, cycling, or playing golf but should avoid physical sports like Football, Basketball.

Mr. Hari Lal-Both knee Replacement

ऑपरेशन से पहले मैं हर काम के लिए बच्चो के सहारे के मोहताज था। Tiolet के लिए भी मुझे बच्चो का सहारा लेना पड़ता था तथा दर्द के कारण  मुझे रात भर नींद नहीं आती थी। Knee Replacement के बाद मैं अपनी सभी दिनचर्या के काम बिना दर्द के बड़ी आसानी से कर लेता हूँ मेरी यह सलाह हैं कि जिस किसी को भी इस ऑपरेशन कि जरुरत है वह इसे अवश्य कराए।  मुझे तो इससे एक तरह से नई जिंदगी मिली हैं।

Parsen Hedaoo-Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction

This Hospital specializes in ligament injuries and Dr. Shekhar Srivastav is very skillful and experienced which I have personally seen. I had ACL reconstruction done seven months back and I am recovering at a good pace. I can notice remarkable differences in my activities with the reconstructed ligaments which have given me better stability at the knee without any pain. The Supporting staff was also amicable. My overall experience with the Hospital was excellent. I wish him all the best for the future.

Mrs. Sheela – Bilateral Total Knee Replacement

पहले मैं बहुत डर रही थी ऑपरेशन करवाने से पर सर्जरी के बाद मुझे पहले से बहुत आराम आया और चलने फिरने में तकलीफ नहीं हुई, पहले मैं उठ भी नहीं पाती थी। अब मैं अपना सारा काम खुद कर लेती हूँ, डॉक्टर साहब के इलाज के बाद मुझे जो आराम मिला है, जो संतुष्टि मिली है उससे मैं ही नहीं मेरे परिवार वाले भी बहुत खुश हैं। डॉक्टर साहब का बहुत बहुत आभार।

Mr. Ashok Bhan – Bilateral Total Knee Replacement

मैं घुटनों के दर्द से हताश होकर संत परमानन्द हॉस्पिटल में आया था, डॉ शेखर श्रीवास्तव ने मेरे दोनों घुटनों का एक साथ इलाज करके मेरी जिन्दगी के 15-20 साल वापिस लौटा दिए। उनकी दूरदर्शिता, हिम्मत और विश्वाश को देख के मुझे बहुत अच्छा लगा।
