What is Knee Replacement Surgery?

Knee replacement surgery or knee arthroplasty is a procedure that involves resurfacing a damaged knee joint due to arthritis. In the surgical procedure, plastic and metal parts are used. 

These parts cover the ends of the bones that make up the knee joint, including the kneecap. This surgical option is recommended for individuals who suffer from severe arthritis or a serious knee injury.

What are the Types of Knee Replacement Surgery?

When medications and treatments fail, knee replacement surgery is an option. Two major types of knee replacement surgery are mentioned below:

  • Total Knee Replacement Surgery - Total knee replacement is the most common type of knee joint replacement surgery. In this procedure, all three areas of the knee joint, including medial (inside), lateral, and patellofemoral (under the kneecap), are replaced.
  • Partial Knee Replacement Surgery - Partial knee replacement is a type of knee arthroplasty (joint replacement). This surgical procedure removes the damaged sections of the knee joint and subsequently replaces them with an artificial joint made of either plastic or metal.

What are the Factors Affecting Knee Replacement Surgery Cost?

The cost of knee replacement surgery in India varies depending on several factors, including the type of surgery, hospital, type of implant used, etc. Some of these factors are mentioned below:

Type of Knee Replacement Surgery: The type of knee replacement surgery you choose affects the surgery cost. The major types of knee replacement surgery are:

Type

Cost (INR)

Cost (USD)

Total Knee Replacement

2.8 lakh - 6 lakh

3350 - 7000

Unicompartmental (Partial) Knee Replacement

1.5 lakh - 3 lakh

1800 - 3500

Kneecap Replacement (Patellofemoral Arthroplasty)

2.8 lakh - 5 lakh

3350 - 6000

Complex or Revision Knee Replacement

3 lakh - 8 lakh

3500 - 9500

Type of Implant: The type of implant used for the surgery also affects its cost. The different types of knee implants include the following:

  • Metal on plastic -  INR 60,000 to INR 1.5 lakh (USD 700 - USD 1800)
  • Ceramic on plastic - INR 1.0 lakh to INR 2.5 lakh (USD 1200 - USD 2300) per implant
  • Ceramic on ceramic - INR 1.5 lakh to INR 3.5 lakh (USD 1800 - USD 4100) per implant
  • Metal on metal - INR 1.0 lakh to INR 2.5 lakh (USD 1200 - USD 2300) per implant
  • Health Condition of the Patient - The cost of knee replacement surgery depends on the complexity of the surgery. If a patient is suffering from any pre-existing illness, such as hypertension or diabetes, then the intricacy of the surgery increases, leading to higher costs.

Type of Surgical procedure - The type of procedure followed during the knee replacement surgery also affects its cost. An open knee surgery costs more than a robotic knee replacement. 

Type of City - The city where you get your knee  replacement surgery can also affect the surgery cost. The total knee replacement cost in a tier 1 city like New Delhi will be more than that of a tier 2 city like Ajmer.

Type of Hospital - The type of hospital where your knee replacement surgery is performed also affects the cost of the surgery. A knee replacement surgery conducted in a more reputed hospital will cost more due to higher medical infrastructure costs. 

Surgeon's Expertise - The surgeon performing the surgery also affects its cost. Surgeons with higher expertise and experience charge a higher fee as compared to those with less experience.

Duration of Hospital Stay - The length of your hospital stay determines the cost of your knee replacement surgery. The longer you stay in the hospital, the more expensive your treatment will be.

Knee Operation Care - Usually, knee replacement surgery is followed by postoperative care that may involve physiotherapy, diagnostic tests, etc. The longer the postoperative care, the more the cost of the surgery.

What is the Pre-Surgical and Post-Surgical Expenses in a Knee Replacement Surgery in India?

  • Preoperative diagnostic tests (lab tests, X-ray, or MRI): Approx. INR 1,500 - INR 10,000 (USD 15 - USD 120)
  • Post-surgery cost (follow-up consultations and physiotherapy for 2-3 weeks): Approx. INR 500 - INR 1,000 (USD 5 - USD 15) (per session)
  • Assistive walking (braces, crutches, side railers): Approx. INR 2,000 - 5,000 (USD 20 - USD 60)

What is Involved in the Post-Surgery Care?

After your surgery, there are some essential things to keep in mind for your safety, recovery, and comfort. Following are some tips that can help patients in better and faster recovery:

  • Reduce swelling and pain by icing your knee for 20 minutes several times daily.
  • Keep the stitched area clean and covered to avoid infection.
  • Exercise in the recovery period as suggested by your doctor.
  • Take physiotherapy sessions post-surgery.
  • Maintain your diet and take your medicines regularly.
  • Visit your doctor for follow-up appointments.

Does Health Insurance Cover for Total Knee Replacement Surgery in India?

Health insurance plans cover the medical and surgical expenses of the insured individual. If you get sick or hurt or need someone to take care of you, your insurance can help you pay for these expenses. Your insurance can either pay you for the expenses you incurred or pay the care provider directly.

Health insurance plans cover the cost of total knee replacement. It also covers the following:

  • Medical expenses incurred in the hospital room
  • Diagnostic tests
  • Medicines
  • Consumables
  • Pre- and post-hospitalization expenses

Many health insurance plans cover the surgery, but there is usually a waiting period of 2 to 4 years before you can make a claim. Once the waiting period is over, you can claim the expenses for the surgery. 

Having a policy with a sufficient sum insured can help prevent financial difficulties.
