What Is Knee Joint Replacement Surgery?

Joint replacement surgery is a medical procedure that aims at helping patients suffering from chronic joint injuries or joint degeneration. An injury may be the result of an accident or an underlying medical condition. The surgery is carried out under the influence of anaesthesia. The artificial grafts made of metal, plastic, or ceramics that resemble the original joint are replaced with original joints. The surgery can help the patient get rid of the pain and enhance their range of motion, which was retrenched earlier due to the orthopaedic problems. Joint replacement surgery is one of the most common orthopaedic procedures that can be performed on adults and children.

Knee Joint replacement surgery can be of two types:

  • Partial joint replacement ( surgeons replaces only one part of the joint)
  • Total joint replacement (surgeons replaces the complete joint)

What Are The Indicators For Knee Joint Replacement Surgery?

Joint knee replacement surgery is generally for patients with chronic joint problems beyond repair, and surgery is usually the last resort for treatment. It helps treat patients suffering from conditions like arthritis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis, especially when:

  • They face difficulty in moving the affected area.
  • They experience moderate pain even while lying down.
  • There is severe stiffness in the affected joint and the areas surrounding it.
  • Other treatment options like medication and physiotherapy fail to give desired results.

What Are The Medical Conditions We Treat Under Knee Joint Replacement Surgery?

Some of the significant medical conditions we treat under Knee Joint Replacement Surgery include:

  • Eliminating joint pain
  • Helping improve the patient’s mobility
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteonecrosis/ avascular necrosis
  • Previous joint injuries
  • Joint fractures
  • Joint infections
  • Other inflammatory joint problems

How Should You Prepare For The Joint Replacement Surgery?

To prepare patients for joint replacement surgery, we recommend the following steps:

  • It is not only the surgery that is important; one must also have the required guidelines, prior to the surgery.
  • As the surgery is quite challenging and sophisticated, the patient must be prepared for the procedure both physically and mentally.
  • It is crucial to get in shape by shedding those extra kilos as they can put excessive strain on the affected joint after the surgery.
  • Discuss the whole procedure with your doctor and inquire about all the possible complications.
  • Start physiotherapy as it will help to reduce the inflammation and swelling, making it easier for the doctors to perform the surgery.
  • Take all the medicine prescribed by the doctor to negate the possibility of infection during or after the surgery.
  • Since the surgery involves loss of blood, it is better to bank blood beforehand.

What Are The Precautions One Must Take Before And After The Knee Joint Replacement Surgery?

The necessary precautionary measures one must consider before and after the surgery are:

Before the surgery:

  • Quit smoking
  • Abstain from eating unhealthy food to avoid unnecessary weight gain.
  • Abstain from smoking and drinking
  • Do not take any medication without a prescription.
  • Do not push yourself to perform activities that cause pain or discomfort.

After the surgery:

  • Avoid lifting heavy objects.
  • Avoid indulging in rigorous physical activities
  • Do not keep the wound open.
  • Avoid unnecessary movement of the affected joint.
  • Avoid smoking and drinking.
  • Consult your doctor before taking part in Sports.

Are There Any Complications Involved?

Just like any other medical procedure, joint replacement surgery also has certain risk factors. These include:

  • Infections
  • Clotting
  • Scarring
  • Allergic reactions to anaesthesia
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Bleeding
  • Nerve damage
  • Dislocation of the replaced graft

All of these complications can be eliminated easily with proper care and precautionary measures.
