Are you having problem with pain in your knee? Is it locking, making it hard to straighten? Are you feeling that your movement is restricted? Do you hear the clicking sound with every movement? Are you in pain due to swelling and stiffness?
Knee pain can be caused due to several reasons. It could be due to a sudden trauma or injury to the knee, or due to sudden overuse of the knee like climbing steps during a trekking trip, or due to an underlying problem in the knee joint such as Arthritis.
At Chanddni Hospital, we get to the core of the problem and then suggest the best suitable treatment for our patients. In the first consultation, we make notes of all your symptoms and may suggest a few tests if required to better understand the problem. On the basis of physical examination and test results, we device a best treatment plan for our patients.
Simple lifestyle modifications can help in relieving knee pain. It is best to avoid high impact exercises and wear appropriate footwear to maintain the correct posture while walking or playing sports or exercising. Its good to consult a physical therapist who can guide you for simple lifestyle modifications and simple stretching exercises which can take load off your knee and in some cases, might be able to fix knee related issues too. Physical therapy also helps you to strengthen your muscles and enhances the joint stability.
For some patients, we feel that knee condition may be revived without surgery. For them we suggest injections, such as Corticosteroids, Hyaluronic acid and Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and optimum medication first. Our expert team of radiologists under ultrasound screening to ensure that the drug is administered at the targeted location administers these injections.
Our first solution is always lifestyle modification and physical therapy. Only then if required we resort to medications or surgery.
Surgery is not always the answer! At Chanddni Hospital, we first examine your condition and suggest simple lifestyle modifications and physical therapy to ease out the pain. Only patients who can not be treated with non-surgical methods are guided about the surgery. At Chanddni Hospital, we are specialized in knee replacement surgery, arthroscopic surgery to treat ligaments, meniscus, cartilage and problems of the patella. Patients with previously failed surgeries or with revision surgeries, or ones with multiple ligaments damage, or ones requiring re-alignment surgeries are also being treated at Chanddni Hospital.
Knee Replacement Surgery, also known as knee arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee to help ease the pain and disability caused by severe osteoarthritis. Apart from treating osteoarthritis, the doctor may also suggest knee replacement surgery for treating:
Total Knee Replacement Surgery: In which the surface of the thighbone and shinbone that connect to the knee are replaced.
Partial knee replacement: In which only one side of the knee is replaced. This is only possible if arthritis partially affects the knee. The surgeon only suggests this if the patient has strong knee ligaments.
Kneecap replacement: In which only the under-surface of the kneecap is replaced. Many surgeons, however, do not recommend this, as it has low rate of success when compared to total knee replacement surgery.
Complex knee replacement: This is recommended in case a patient has had 2-3 knee replacement surgeries in the past or has severe arthritis.
Knee replacement surgery can take up to 1-2 hours. During the surgery, the orthopedic surgeon replaces the diseased or damaged part of the knee joint with a metal or plastic component that’s allows to mimic the functionality and movement of the original knee.
Knee replacement surgery involves extensive postoperative pain. It is highly recommended to get vigorous physical therapy post operation. It may take up to 6 weeks or more to recover. Meanwhile, use of mobility aids like canes, crutches or walking frame may be required.
At Chanddni Hospital, we provide knee replacements either Bilateral (in same sitting), Simultaneous (at the gap of 2 days) or One by one separate (at the gap of 6 hours).
