Knee Replacement Surgery

My Youtube Videos

5 questions you should ask yourself before you decide to get a knee replacement surgery......

1) Do you get pain in the knees even on rest ? (Just sitting or resting in bed)

2) Do you need to take painkiller on regular basis ? (More than 3 tablets in a week)

3) Do you have to think twice before deciding to go out for a family/social gathering ? (Fearing that you might get pain due to little walking/standing).

4) Are you having trouble in doing your routine activities at home due to knee pain ? (Like bathing, changing cloths, working in kitchen).

5) Do you get knee pain while walking on level ground for 10 minutes ? (Or less)

If the answer is 'yes' to 3 or more questions, then probably you might require a knee replacement surgery.....

On an average knee replacement lasts for 15 to 20 years. However these days we use better quality implants with expected life up to 30 years.

  • The knee replacement surgery involves making an incision over the front of your knee to expose the damaged bone of your joint.

  • The standard incision size varies from approximately 6–10 inches in length.

  • During the operation, the surgeon moves your kneecap to the side and cuts away the damaged cartilage and a small amount of bone.

  • They then replace the damaged tissue with new metal and plastic components.

  • The components combine to form an artificial joint that is biologically compatible and mimics the movement of your natural knee.

  • Single knee surgery : 30-40 minutes.

  • Both knee surgery : 60- 90 minutes.

Artificial knee implants consist of metal and medical-grade plastic called polyethylene.

There are two ways of attaching the components to the bone. One is to use bone cement, which usually takes about 10 minutes to set. The other is a cement-free approach, in which the components have a porous coating that allows the bone to grow onto it.

In some cases, a surgeon may use both techniques during the same operation.


# General anesthesia ( 5%)

# Spinal or epidural (95%)

There is some pain for first 2 days. But our surgery team will do everything possible to keep it manageable and minimal.

We might give you a nerve block prior to your surgery and use a long-acting local anesthetic during the procedure to help with pain relief after the procedure.

Also we will give you a intravenously (IV) painkiller after surgery to keep pain under control.

When you leave the hospital, we will give you pain relief medication as pills or tablets.

At home, your knee should be significantly less painful and comfortable.

  • # Anaesthesia usually takes 6-8 to wean off completely.

  • # we will keep your knees raised (elevated) to help with swelling.

  • # There will be a bandage over your knee, and you may have a drain to remove fluid from the joint.

  • # There will be a urinary catheter which will removed later on the day of your operation or the next day.

  • # You will be given a compression bandage or sock around your leg to improve blood circulation.

  • # We will be giving you an anticoagulant medication (blood thinners), foot/calf pumps, or both.

  • # Intravenous antibiotics will be given to reduce the risk of infection.

Most people are up and walking within 24 hours with the aid of a walker or crutches.

Following your operation, a physiotherapist will help you bend and straighten your knee, get out of bed, and ultimately learn to walk with your new knee. This is often done on the same day of your operation.

Most people are discharged from the hospital 4-5 days after surgery.

After you return home, physiotherapy will continue regularly for several weeks. Specific exercises will aim to improve the functionality of the knee.

Most people recover within 3 months, although it may take 6 months or longer for some people to recover fully.

# If you live in a building, prepare a bed and space on the ground floor so that you can avoid the stairs when you first return.

# Make sure the house is free of obstructions and hazards, including power cords, area rugs, clutter, and furniture. Focus on pathways, hallways, and other places you are likely to walk through.

# Handrails are secure.

# A grab bar is available in the tub or shower.

# You may also require a bath or shower seat.

6–8 weeks : low-impact exercise such as riding a stationary bike, walking, and swimming.

8-12 weeks : Fast walking, partial squats.

You should avoid running, jumping, as well as other high-impact activities.
