Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to reconstruct or reshape a damaged or diseased joint. This surgery often involves removalof the damaged joint and the implantation of an artificial joint. Those who are in good health but experience osteoarthritic pain that has not responded to other treatments to the point of interfering with their daily activities can opt for the surgery. The relief of joint pain and better quality of life are the driving factors for patients to receive arthroplasty. Arthroplasty may be used to: - Replace all or part of a joint with a prosthesis. - Reshape the bone and cartilage that make up the joint. Arthroplasty is performed under anesthesia and may last several hours. During the procedure, the joint is fully exposed and the damaged bone and cartilage are cut away or reshaped. Patients typically resume normal activities within 3 months.
Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis caused by the breakdown and loss of cartilage (connective tissue that cushions bones at joints). Symptoms include pain, stiffness and joint locking. There are many factors that lead to osteoarthritis. For instance, joint injury, obesity, or misalignments of bones. You may be suffering from osteoarthritis if you have pain or discomfort when you use your joints (especially the knee) and the symptom has been present for more than 6 months. Your doctor will examine you and take an X-ray – usually this will be enough to diagnose the condition. Otherwise, it may be necessary to undergo more sophisticated tests or scans. Let us help.

Total knee replacement is a surgery to replace worn or damaged parts of the knee joint. The surface of the diseased joint are removed and replaced with an artificial joint. This surgery can relieve pain and improve movements in your knee joint. You may need a total knee replacement if: - Other treatments such as medicine, steroid injections and physical therapy, no longer stop your pain or help movement of the joint. - The pain or poor movement in your knee prevents you from doing your normal activities. The staff will help you stand and begin walking with a walker the day of or day after surgery. You will have some pain as the tissues heal and muscles regain their strength. This pain should go away in a few weeks and pain medicine will be given to relieve surgery pain. With your new joint and physical therapy, you may be able to resume some of the activities you once enjoyed. Kindly consult our doctors if you need any advice.
