Knee replacement surgery is typically recommended for patients who are experiencing severe knee pain or disability due to arthritis, injury, or other medical conditions. Knee replacement surgery, also known as knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure in which a damaged or worn-out knee joint is replaced with an artificial joint made of metal and plastic components.
During the surgery, the surgeon will make an incision in the knee and remove the damaged portions of the joint, including the cartilage and bone. The artificial joint will then be secured to the remaining bone using cement or other materials. After the surgery, the patient will typically stay in the hospital for a few days to recover before beginning physical therapy and rehabilitation.
While knee replacement surgery can be highly effective in relieving pain and restoring mobility, it is a major surgical procedure and carries some risks, such as infection, blood clots, and nerve damage. It is important for patients to carefully consider the potential benefits and risks of the surgery.
Knee Surgery is split into two they are-
• Partial Knee Replacement:
The knee joint is split into three compartments 1. Lateral 2. Medical 3. Patellofemoral. If the problem affects only one or two compartments of the knee, then partial knee replacement is suggested, which involves replacing damaged tissue, implanting artificial parts into the affected compartment of the knee, and resurfacing existing areas.
• Robotic Knee Surgery:
A state-of-the-art surgical procedure that utilizes the NAVIO system for either partial or total knee replacement surgery. Here surgery is carried out by using robotic assistance to remove facets or all of the knee joint through prosthetic implants. The robotic instruments work more effectively to bend and rotate than the human hand to promote vision, precision, control during this minimally invasive method, moreover, healthy structures covering the area remain unharmed.
