Knee Surgery in India

Knee Surgery is a standard happening with the orthopedic surgeons in India. In India almost everyday the maximum number of operation that happens after child delivery is knee surgeries. Yes in this country the knee related diseases are rising high and according to the doctors it will become an epidemic very soon owing to the poverty level increase in the country.

Throbbing knees are a frequent occurring problem in the middle-aged and elderly populations. Commonest cause of knee pain in this population is knee arthritis. There are quite a few treatments for early knee arthritis that can help alleviate pain, and return people to their daily activities. Knee replacement surgery, better known as total knee arthroplasty can help relieve pain and restore function in severely diseased knee joints.

The knee:
The knee is the largest joint in the body, and one of the most easily injured. It is made up of the lower end of the thighbone (femur) which rotates on the upper end of the shinbone (tibia), and the knee cap (patella) which slides in a groove on the end of the femur. The knee also contains large ligaments which help control motion by connecting bones and bracing the joint against abnormal types of motion. Other parts of your knee, like cartilage, serve to cushion your knee or help it absorb shock during motion.

Different diseases of the knee:

  • Patellar Tendon Rupture
  • Tibial Tubercle Fracture
  • Quadriceps Tendon Rupture
  • Osteonecrosis Of The Knee
  • Goosefoot (Pes Anserine) Bursitis Of The Knee
  • Posterior Cruciate Ligament (Pcl) Tear
  • Arthritis Of The Knee
  • New Techniques To Restore Articular Cartilage

    Knee Replacement Surgeries:
    Knee Replacement Surgery is an operation where the knee is recovered completely to make it active once again just like a new one. During the surgery the knee is in a bent position so that all surfaces of the joint are fully exposed. After making an incision between 6 and 12 inches in length, your surgeon moves aside your muscles, kneecap and connective tissues and cuts away the damaged joint surface. He or she takes measurements to ensure a good fit for your new prosthesis and smoothens your bones' rough edges. The surgeon then inserts the prosthesis. Before closing the incision, he or she bends and rotates your knee, testing and balancing it to ensure that it functions properly. Some people choose to have both knees replaced at the same time.

    Knee Replacement Surgery help in the following:

  • When you have pain that limits activities such as walking, climbing stairs and getting in and out of chairs, or you experience moderate or severe knee pain at rest.
  • When you have limited function or mobility, such as chronic knee stiffness and swelling that prevent you from bending and straightening your knee.
  • You've tried other methods to improve symptoms, for example resting, weight loss, physical therapy, medications, braces and surgery, but they've failed.
  • You have a knee deformity, such as a joint that bows in or out.
  • You're age 55 or older.

    ACL Surgery:
    The surgical procedure for an ACL reconstruction is variable, but commonly involves using a segment of another larger ligament or tendon to replace the damaged ACL. The ligament most commonly used is the patellar ligament which connects the kneecap (patella) to the tibia. About one-third of this ligament is removed and subsequently secured to the femur and tibia to replace the torn ACL.

    The Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction is the incidence of post operative neuromas of the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve. Doctors prefer the patellar tendon as a graft, although recent reports have found no significant difference between patellar tendon and hamstring grafts. In a revision reconstruction they may choose to use allograft if available.

    The options that can be used for ACL reconstruction include:

  • Patellar Ligament
  • Hamstring Tendons
  • Allograft (Donor Tissue)
