A total knee replacement is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased knee joint is replaced with Titanium Implant. Total Knee Replacement is actually a surface replacement surgery, as only the top 8 mm covering of the knee is changed and not the entire knee as the name of the surgery suggests. The surgery is now being done at more than 100 centres in India with very good results.
Knee replacement surgery, which can take 1 to 2 hours, has become so precise that doctors can choose from a variety of knee designs that suit your height, weight, and activity level. The implants, as they are called, are made from a variety of materials, including metal, ceramic, or plastic. They are built in such a manner so that they can provide the best range of movement. Some implants are made just for women -- to closely match their anatomy.
In Knee replacement surgery, the surgeon removes the damaged joint lining and replaces the joint surfaces with a metal and plastic implant that functions similar to a normal knee. A lot of patients keep suffering from knee joint pain caused by advanced arthritis due to fear in the mind that their condition may become worse after the surgery. This is due to the experience of some patients who get the surgery done by untrained surgeons. At the hands of experienced surgeons who are now more than 300 in India, this is a fairly simple surgery with excellent results. One must not wait for the knee to deteriorate so much that the patient is unable to walk at all before going for the surgery. The best time to get this surgery done is when the patient is still walking even though with pain. In such cases the results of the surgery would be the best.
Patients having degenerative knee due to arthritis or any other reason are ideal candidates for Total Knee Replacement. The knee joint arthritis is classified into 5 grades and the best time to get this surgery is when the disease is around grade 3. When the pain is felt even while lying down on the bed or sitting on a chair, it is time to consult a best knee joint replacement surgeon and getting ready for the surgery. Best time to do the surgery is when the patient is still able to walk and is not immobile. Therefore the surgery should not be postponed for a long time as other complications like Diabetes and Hypertension may also adversely affect the best results of the surgery.
A common artificial knee design replaces the PCL (posterior cruciate ligament), located in the back of the knee. Another replaces the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament). Some artificial knees are designed for partial knee replacement, while others are built to keep the PCL and ACL right where they are.

The patients get on their feet within 24 hours of the surgery. The physical therapy team starts physiotherapy and exercises during the hospitalization itself in order to achieve the best results from the surgery. The Physiotherapy continues at home till the stay of the patient in India and the stitches are taken off around the 15th day from the date of surgery. The exercises continue for 45 days and in the best case scenario the patient is able to get rid of the walker within 15 days of the surgery. A lot of hospitals do not emphasize the role of physiotherapy in obtaining best results from the surgery and so the patients ignore this important aspect which can sometimes have disastrous results. You have got the surgery done so that you can walk without any pain and in order to achieve this goal you should walk more and more after the surgery. With every passing day your intensity should increase and you would be able to do more activity without any discomfort. Muscle Strengthening will go a long way in making your surgery successful.
