All about knee replacement surgery

Medically known as knee arthroplasty, a knee replacement surgery is a surgical intervention in which the damaged or impaired part of the knee is replaced with artificial components. Knee surgery is recommended when there is a pain, difficulty in routine movement, swelling or degenerative changes.

Reasons to undergo Knee surgery:

The reasons to undergo knee replacement surgery may differ from individual to individual, and is generally done by elderly individuals however, even youth and young adults may be recommended to undergo the surgery if the impairment calls for it. The common reasons for pain and discomfort are as follows:

  • Osteoarthritis:  Caused by inflammation of joints and age-related, osteoarthritis is a fairly common medical condition seen in elderly patients. Individuals above the age of 40 may notice stiffness, swelling, pain and limitation in movement which is a result of impairment of the cartilage that surrounds the joint degenerates over time to cause.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis:  This auto-immune degeneration is caused by the chronic inflammation of the membrane surrounding the knee joint. This, in turn, destroys the cartilage along with the underlying bone, resulting in stiff and sore joints
  • Post Traumatic Arthritis:  As a result of acute knee injury like ligament tear or fracture, the cartilage protecting the knee joint is damaged causing the symptom.

Knee replacement treatment options

Knee replacement surgery is an option if you are suffering from acute pain and stiffness of joint that restricts your mobility and causes discomfort. Depending on the acuteness of the pain and the damage, a patient can either try non-surgical methods like medical pain management, physiotherapy or even knee bracing to relieve them of the pain. However, this may only bring temporary relief in certain cases, and the patient will have to eventually look for permanent relief through surgical method.

The types of knee replacement surgeries one can opt for based on their medical condition and their orthopaedic doctors

  • Total knee replacement:  This surgery is recommended for patients for whom all non-surgical methods have been in vain. Total knee replacement surgery is done to replace the damaged surface with an artificial implant through a 7-8” incision around the joint. Post-operative therapy for the patient is a must to get accustomed to the artificial implant.
  • Partial knee replacement:  Also known as uni-compartmental knee replacement, this surgery only replaces the part of the knee which is severely damaged with artificial implants. Partial knee replacement surgery is indicated in very rare cases, where only the part of a knee joint is degenerating.
  • Minimally invasive knee replacement:  With the use of specialized surgical methods, a small 5-7” incision is made to insert the implants. The incision is done without causing injury or damage to the quadriceps muscles; hence, this method is also known as Quadriceps Sparing Knee Replacement Surgery. The benefit of undergoing minimally invasive knee replacement surgery is lesser recovery time, fewer days in the hospital and a smaller incision.
  • Hi-flex knee replacement:  Hi-flex knee replacement surgery allows full knee bending up to 155 degrees after the surgery. Nonetheless, not every patient can be a candidate for this surgery. This degree of high flexion is attained only by selecting the right patient, implant design, surgical technique and aggressive rehabilitation post-surgery.
  • Computer navigated knee replacement:  As the name suggests the surgery is performed with the highest level of precision with the skilled hand of an orthopaedic surgeon. With the most advanced and revolutionary - NAV3 navigation technology the surgeon can accurately implant the prosthetic with minimum scarring. This benefits the patient in the long-term performance of the knee joint, and also quicker recovery time.

Frequently Asked Questions and patient concerns:

1. How many days would I have to stay in the hospital for my knee replacement surgery?

A hospital stay of 3 to 5 days is required to undergo knee replacement surgery in India. This stay includes surgery and post-operative rehabilitation. A physiotherapy session for about two weeks is also suggested, which the patient is called in for.

It takes about 6 weeks to completely recover from the surgery, during which the patient can move with the aid of crutches. It is advised to resume routine activities gradually, first with the help of a walking stick and then without any support. However, in certain cases, it could take even three months for the swelling and pain to subside.

It is advised to use a pillow between your knees and to avoid sleeping on the stomach. Ensure to use a firm mattress for sleeping, and change positions whenever you feel discomfit.

There is no such age limit to undergo knee transplant but depends upon the pain and disability of the patient. Patients between the age group of 50 to 70 years can undergo a transplant, as that is when the knee cartilage begins to deteriorate with age, however, even young patients suffering from osteoarthritis can opt for the transplant.

The implant joints are compatible with the body and composed of special metals to replace the knee. They do not react with body tissues thus ruling out the risk of rejection.

Immediately after the surgery, it is advised to refrain from high impact activities like running, however, you will be advised to walk as much as possible. Gradually, with the advice of your surgeon, you can ease into activities like brisk walking, climbing, sitting cross-legged, and travelling or even play sports like golf.

You can resume a desk job in a span of a month or 6 weeks, however, jobs can require prolonged walking or standing can be resumed after 2 months of the surgery.

If the doctor suggests you are fit, then you can undergo bilateral knee replacement surgery in one sitting, however, in older patients with co-morbidities, it is advised to have a breather of a few days or a month. Generally, a bilateral knee replacement can be performed on a patient up to the age of 60.
