What is total knee replacement?
Also known as knee arthroplasty, knee replacement is a medical procedure that involves the replacement of all the components of the knee joint, that have been damaged by an injury, regular wear and tear or some degenerative joint disease like arthritis, by a prosthetic component that resembles the original joint in structure and function. With over 1,20,000 knee replacements performed every year in India, the procedure is known for its high success rate and effectiveness. The prosthetic knee components are usually made up of metal alloys, polymers or high-grade plastics or a combination of these. 
Total knee replacement helps to 

  • Restore the normal range of motion
  • Reduce joint-related pain and discomfort 
  • Alleviate swelling and discomfort
  • Improve joint mobility

Things you need to know

  • The surgical procedure usually takes about an hour or 2
  • You will be hospitalized for a couple of days, depending on your overall progress
  • Your average length of stay will be decided by your doctor depending upon the pace at which you are recovering

 How to prepare for the treatment? 

  • You will be required to undergo certain screenings and tests to evaluate your overall health as well as to prepare a personalized treatment plan to address your specific needs
  • You need to inform your doctor about all the medication that you have been taking as you might need to stop taking some of them
  • You will be prescribed some medicines, usually antibiotics, to help lower the risks of infection during and after the surgery
  • You need to refrain from smoking, drinking or using any kind of recreational drug
  • You need to make sure that your surgeon is well aware of your medical history

Procedure involved

  • You will be given anaesthesia to make sure that you do not feel any pain 
  • You will be asked to lie down on your back and your knee is positioned to allow better access to the affected area. 
  • The surgeon will clean the area and make an incision that is around 8 to 10-inch-long so as to access the affected joints. 
  • Once the kneecap has been exposed, the surgeon will rotate it outwards so as to access the other joint component. 
  • The affected joint is removed along with its degenerated joint fragments and the bone surface is cleaned for the placement of the artificial components which are fixed with the help of screws and plates. 
  • Once all the knee components have been replaced, the surgeons will carefully move and bend the knee to check if these have been placed correctly. 
  • After making sure that everything is normal, the doctors will close the wound and cover it up.

What to expect after the procedure?

  • After the surgery, you will be shifted to the recovery room, where you will be kept under observation for a couple of hours, or even a day
  • You are likely to feel slight pain and discomfort, which is quite normal after the surgery and can be managed easily by taking prescribed medication
  • Physiotherapy will be started to enhance blood flow, improve mobility and aid recovery
  • Regular follow-ups are necessary to negate the risks of any complication

Potential risks that you need to know about

  • Clot formation
  • Nerve or tissue damage
  • Pulmonary embolism
