Joint Replacement (Knee, Hip and Shoulder Replacement)

Joint replacement surgery involves replacing a degenerated joint with an artificial joint. In knee or hip replacement surgery, the artificial joint is made out of special alloys (Titanium/Cobalt chrome), ceramic or ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE).

Knee replacement is a procedure that replaces the knee by resurfacing the bones at knee joint. The success of the surgery / implant life depends upon the proper utilization of the replaced Knee joint. After the surgery for few days, individuals are suggested to walk with the help of crutches, parallel bars, a walker, or a cane for a while to get up.

The choice of implant is made according to the bone structure of an individual. The aim of joint replacement surgery is to relieve pain, and aid the joint to work better, and enhance walking & other daily activities. There are many benefits of joint replacement surgery like return to daily activities and no pain.

Further, with the passing time, one can stand on their feet and witness a big improvement in flexibility & less pain within a duration of a month. However, it is important to exercise the knee often, in order to keep down inflammation& to fortify the muscles.

Hip Replacement is a procedure that replaces the hip by resurfacing the bones that intersect at the hip joint. This surgery aims to relieve hip pain and improve function. The surgeon removes the femoral head & replaces it with a prosthesis. This prosthetic femur head is shaped like a ball and fits perfectly into the rounded cup prosthesis that serves as the new pelvic socket. If the hip is damaged by fracture, arthritis, or any other condition & even if changes in lifestyle, everyday activities, medications & walking support do not help in improvement of the condition, the doctor may advise a hip replacement surgery. It is a safe surgery that effectively aids the patient by relieving pain, assisting in their return to normalcy, increasing motion, and enabling them to enjoy their daily activities.
