Total knee replacement in Kadapa
In this procedure, the surgeon operates on the entire knee, replacing the damaged and diseased joints, bones, and cartilage with artificial material. A well-trained and experienced anesthesiologist will administer epispinal anesthesia. To facilitate optimized recovery, we at Vidyasagar Hospital implement a fast-track anesthesia technique to reduce side effects and fast-track recovery.
To alleviate pain after knee surgery, we use Interspace between the popliteal artery and capsule of the posterior knee (IPACK) blocks.
We use adductor canal block technique, with which patient will be completely pain free of the knee and can also be able to do exercises, able to walk sooner after the surgery.
With all the medical field advancements, surgical procedures are now done in the laminar airflow operation theatres, equipped with the latest equipment and technologies.
The knee replacement surgery is done under the supervision of a multi-disciplinary team of doctors and surgeons, including an orthopedic surgeon, an anaesthesiologist, a diabetologist, a cardiologist, and a physical therapist for a higher success rate of the surgery and proper recovery afterward.
Knees, much like the rest of our body, are subjected to aging. Several conditions – from consistent risks of constant friction of the bones to inflicted pain due to injury – impose the need for knee replacement surgery. The procedure, also known as knee arthroplasty, involves removing the damaged bone and cartilage from around the thighbone, shinbone, and kneecap of the patient and supplementing them with artificial joints or prostheses.
The primary objective behind a knee replacement is to restore the knee’s normal function and reduce the persistent pain and stiffness that the patients struggle with. You might need to undergo knee replacement surgery
