Total Knee replacement is one of the most successful surgeries in all of medicine. Pioneering work in knee replacement was done in the early 70's by prominent scientists and surgeons in the US and UK. Since then knee replacement has come a long way. Surgeon experience has grown. Surgery is faster, more precise and with minimum errors. Anaesthesia is better. Pain management is better. All this has resulted in faster recuperation for the patient. The patient walks independently on the second day after surgery.
The patient is discharged in 5 or 6 days. Replacing both the knees in one sitting is now possible and the advantages are obvious. The knee replacement prosthesis’ have undergone a tremendous evolution as well. Better prosthesis translates into better function and a longer life for the joint. Most patients enjoy a near normal knee function postoperatively with the knee bending completely. Patients disabled with knee pain who can barely walk on their deformed legs undergone a dramatic transformation after the surgery.
They experience complete relief from pain and complete correction of deformity. After surgery they don't need pain killers. They can walk normally without a stick or walker and at a normal pace. In fact for patients needing knee replacement, things have never looked as promising as they are now!
