Knee Replacement: What You Need To Know About It?

Knee Replacement: What You Need To Know About It?

Knee replacement is a surgery wherein an artificial joint is used to replace a diseased, damaged or worn out knee. This surgery is common among people who fall in the age group of 60-80, but recent trends seem to suggest that younger people are opting for this surgery as well. The lifetime of the artificial knee joint is around 20 years, provided the knee is well cared for.

Why do you need knee replacement?

Most common reason is “high grade osteoarthritis” due to wear and tear of the knee joint. The pre-hospital study of the Knee joint is mandatory and would decide what kind of Replacement is suitable to the patient. If there is diabetes or hypertension associated with this, then it should be controlled well before undergoing surgery. Hemoglobin of at least 10 gm% is required.

If the mobility in your knee joint is reduced leading to impaired functioning of the knee joint, then you might need a knee replacement surgery. You may experience pain while walking, sitting and, in some cases, resting as well.

Some of the common reasons why you may opt for this particular surgery are:

  1. Gout, where, small crystals are formed inside the joint.
  2. Rheumatoid Arthritis, an autoimmune disorder, wherein the immune system of the body attacks the body’s healthy tissues.
  3. Hemophilia, wherein, the blood ceases to clot normally.
  4. Injuries to the knee.
  5. Disorders that cause unusual bone growth (bone dysplasias).
  6. Death of bone in the knee joint following blood supply problems (avascular necrosis).
  7. Knee deformity with pain and loss of cartilage.
  8. Unusual growth of bones in the knee joint.

Knee replacement surgery is classified into:

  1. Partial Knee Replacement: In this surgery, only one part of the joint is replaced.
  2. Total Knee Replacement: Total knee replacement surgery involves replacement of both sides of the knee joint.

The usual hospital stay period is around 2-3 days after the surgery is completed. Initially, you will require the help of crutches to walk for at least 2 months. You may also be asked to do gentle knee strengthening exercises. It may take up to 3 months to recover completely from a knee replacement surgery.

Dear lybrate user cervical spondylosis often called arthritis of the neck it is a general term for wear and tear affecting the spinal disks in your neck. As the disks dehydrate and shrink, pain in neck & shoulder appears sometimes numbness in arms may also be felt, cervical spondylosis can be cured by homoeopathy. You should continue your physiotherapy and start homoeopathic medicine which is free from side effects your excess weight will also reduce.

Lot inflamation is felt in my both legs from foot to knee and as well in some parts of my upper body under arm pits, don't know why?

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I will have to understand why you are having these pains in multiple joints of the body. You need to get some blood tests done and send me the results so that I can see them and advise accordingly: cbc, esr, crp, serum electrolytes, serum vitamin d levels. The reports of these tests can give us a clue to whether there is any inflammation going on, also if there is any deficiency, that can be corrected as well. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hello, My father is 60 years of age. A month ago his left calf became swollen. The doctor did an ultra sound and this is the report: Cellulitis both lower legs, lymphadenopathy in left upper thigh, lesser saphenous varicose veins in B/L lowers legs, no e/o DVT, arterial flow normal. Doctor prescribed him:- Osil 500 mg and Brutozyme, both to be taken twice a day. But even after a month, the swelling has hardly gone down. And my father feels no change in his legs for the better. Please help and advice what to do. Are the medicines prescribed enough. Is there anything serious to worry about? Does it take a long time to heal? How long? Should we see another doctor? Any advice is appreciated. Thank You.

Hello Dolten! your father taking right medicine as osil is for varicose veins n brutozyme is for wound cleaning, your father diagnosed acute varicose veins but no thrombosis, but this varicose veins problem doesn't start suddenly, it goes increasing slowly for long time n some aggravating factor turns into acute condition, so as this is long term disease doest not respond sudden with medicine even age is 60, in this age medicine already work slowly as degenerative changes started, in this you didn't mention about sugar level, this also a disappointing factor in varicose veins, I suggest you to take ayurvedic treatment with these medicine so that we can provide strength to the veins as Ayurveda have rasayana medicines for rejuvenation, this disease gets slow results about 1 year to heal, for more information please contact me on private chat, with more personal information about bp sugar n operational history etc. Till then take care,

My wife is 7th month pregnant. Daily she is suffering from back pain. What care to be taken to recover from pain.
Its normal to have back pain during pregnancy or after delivery,she can do hot fomentation,take rest and take precautions like sitting with a back support (pillow behind the back) And avoid using very soft mattress,she can visit physiotherapy centre for ante natal care and learn proper postures and exercises,precautions that can be taken after the delivery which will regain the lost muscle strength of the back.

Requires detailed examination and investigation. Preliminary investigations suggested: hb, tlc, dlc, esr, blood sugar fasting & pp, uric acid vit d urine r/e x-ray of the affected part. Anyway it may be tried sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomentation paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck, back, knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it. Let it not become beginning of a bigger problem. Make sure that patient is not allergic to any of the medicines that he/she is going to take.
