The dedicated joint replacement unit at Anand Hospital, one of its kinds in the country, conducts replacement surgeries for knee, hip, shoulder, ankle and elbow.
Joint replacement surgery is a procedure in which your surgeon will remove the damaged cartilage and bone and then replace it with a new metal and plastic joint surface to restore the alignment and painless functioning of your joints.
If non-surgical treatments are ineffective, total knee replacement surgery can be considered a safe and effective procedure to relieve pain and help you resume normal activities. It also helps to correct deformity. The results of knee replacement are predictable and long lasting. Also because of the developments in anaesthesia, pain control and physiotherapy, one can resume back to normal routine activities fairly soon after the surgery.
