Which is the best hospital for knee replacement in India?


A knee replacement surgery is an orthopedic procedure done to restore function and relieve the pain of the knee joint. The damaged portion of the bone is removed and replaced with an artificial prosthesis made of metal alloys, high-grade plastics, and polymers.


When is a knee replacement needed?


Total knee replacement is the ultimate and final treatment option when all other forms of therapies have failed. Usually, the following signs associated with the knee pain indicate that the patient needs a knee replacement surgery,

  • Knee pain interfering with sleep, which is not relieved with rest.

  • Knee pain causing hindrance in walking, getting in and out of a chair, or climbing stairs.

  • Failure of the pain-relieving medications to provide relief.

  • Knee pain associated with swelling, which does not subside by any treatment and limits the mobility of the joint.

  • Bowing of the knee, in or out.
