  2. When should you consider getting a Knee Replacement Surgery?

    If your knee is severely damaged and deformed by arthritis or injury, it may be hard for you to perform simple activities such as walking or climbing stairs. You may even begin to feel pain while you are sitting or lying down. If medications, changing your activity level, and using walking supports are no longer helpful, you may want to consider total knee replacement surgery.
    A knee replacement surgery should be considered if you have :
    Severe knee pain that limits your everyday activities, including walking, climbing stairs, and getting in and out of chairs.
    Moderate or severe knee pain while resting, either day or night.
    Knee deformity: a bowing in or out of your knee.
    Knee stiffness: inability to bend and straighten your knee.
    Failure to obtain pain relief from nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These medications, including aspirin and ibuprofen, often are most effective in the early stages of arthritis.These drugs may become less effective for patients with severe arthritis.
    Inability to tolerate or complications from pain medications
    Failure to substantially improve with other treatments such as injections in the joint, physiotherapy, other surgical procedures like arthroscopy.

    Most patients who undergo total knee replacement are age 60 to 80, but Dr Jayant Arora will evaluate patients individually. Recommendations for knee replacement surgery are based on a patient's pain and disability, not age. We have done Knee replacement in many patients above the age of 85 years.

    What to expect after a knee replacement surgery?

    Following total knee replacement, more than 90 of patients have no pain, or only slight pain, and their walking is no longer limited by their knee. Most patients can live a full and independent life.

    The expected outcome of a total knee replacement are, in order of priority:

    1. Pain relief
    2. Standing and walking that is not limited by the knee
    3. Improved knee motion
    4. Improved knee strength
    5. Correction of the deformed legs
    Total knee replacement is major surgery, which usually involves a 3-4 day stay in the hospital followed by rehabilitation period of 2-3 months. A team Doctors and Physiotherapists led by Dr Jayant Arora at Columbia Asia Hospital will work with you to guide your recovery, but you are the most important member of the team! We believe that an informed patient is the best ally in achieving success with total knee replacement surgery. Please read the information given below carefully. Share it with your family and friends. The information will guide you in preparing for surgery and it will give you insight into how to maximize your recovery from knee replacement surgery and enjoy many years of painless knee function.

    Can both knees be replaced together?
    Yes, both knees can be replaced together simultaneously in one sitting if the patient’s general condition is good. Alternatively one knee is replaced followed by the other after an interval of 6-8 weeks. This allows patient some time to recover between the two surgeries. The decision to do both knee surgery will be taken after Dr Jayant Arora has examined you in the clinic.

    What does a MIS knee replacement surgery involve?
    Minimally invasive Knee replacement surgery (MIS TKR) is a new method of performing Knee replacement using an incision that is half the length of the standard total knee incision.
    This technique minimizes muscle cutting thereby reducing the post operative pain, allowing earlier rehabilitation and reducing the duration of hospital stay.
    The knee components are same as those used during the traditional surgery but using special instrumentation only a 4 inch incision is sufficient to carry out the surgery. MIS Knee replacement is possible in majority of patients needing knee replacement, exceptions being large legs due to obesity and bulky muscles.
