Renowned  Orthopaedic  Surgeon  Recommends  Partial  Knee  Replacement  as Weekend Surgery, ensuring more natural movement of knee joint .

 

Thursday,  August  17,  2017:  Increasing  patient  awareness  about  various  joint  pain  relief  alternatives  and demand for minimally invasive surgeries, has led to the rise of partial knee replacement surgeries in India. Dr. Neelam  V  Ramana  Reddy,  Orthopedics  Specialist  at  Star  Hospitals,  Hyderabad,  and  one  of  the  leading orthopedic surgeons in the country, strongly recommends partial knee replacement as a bone-conserving joint replacement surgery, for patients suffering from early osteoarthritis/ unicompartmental osteoarthritis, where only one of the knee compartments is affected.  

 

According to Dr. Ramana Reddy, the key benefits for patients from partial knee replacement are:

 

 Preservation of all ligaments as none of the ligaments of the knee joint are released during surgery

 

 More natural movement of knee joint than a total knee replacement surgery

 

 Natural movement enables patients to kneel, squat or sit cross-legged, which are difficult to achieve with total knee replacement 

 

 Done “WEEKEND Surgery”, where patient gets admitted on Saturday morning, undergoes surgery on same day and is discharged on Sunday evening. This also allows patients to be able to walk within 6 hours of undergoing surgery. 

 

   Minimal invasion and pain for patients, also ensuring faster rehabilitation 

 

However,  Dr.  Ramana  Reddy  cautions  that  there  are  many  factors  to  consider  while  choosing  the  right treatment for knee arthritis, such as age, bone density, and shape of the knee joint of the patient.  

 

Dr. Phil Hirst, a leading orthopedic surgeon from Manchester, United Kingdom, and one of the pioneers in the advancement  of  partial  knee  replacement  surgery,  recently  visited  Star  Hospital  to  engage  in  a  knowledge sharing session with Dr. Ramana Reddy on this issue. He elaborated on some of the technical improvements that have been made in products for partial knee replacement, such as the following: 

 

 Fixed bearing knee technology that prevents motion in multiple directions or spin-off, which is seen in the case of mobile- bearing technology. This helps in reducing wear rate and increasing life of implant. 

 

  Additional patellofemoral joint that can reduce patellar pain during movement 

 

 Option to replace both medial and lateral compartments of the knee, as opposed to some products that only address osteoarthritis in the medial compartment 

 

  Highly polished Cobalt Chrome material which provides optimal bearing material and reduces wear 

 

Therefore,  depending  upon  the  degree  of  arthritic  damage,  partial  knee  replacement  proves  to  be  a  more suitable  option  for  patients  seeking  more  natural  knee  movement,  bone  preservation,  faster  recovery  and better pain relief.
