Why to Do a Total Knee Replacement When Partial Knee Replacement Is Enough

Why to Do a Total Knee Replacement When Partial Knee Replacement Is Enough

Partial knee replacement is a surgery in which only one, that is an affected side of the knee is replaced. This is a very helpful surgery for young patients who are very young to undergo a total knee replacement. The surgery has many advantages over total knee replacement surgery.

The surgery is small , the incision is small. The knee cap is not dislocated during surgery. Post operative recovery is smooth. The chances of medical complications are less. The chances of infection are half. The natural proprioception is maintained as the native ACL ligament is preserved.

Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Swing 20 times morning and evenings. Go for a regular walk. Also control your weight properly to bring down the pain.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your injury was around 6 months old and since then all tissues must have healed by now. Did you do a x ray after your initial injury to rule out a bony issue? my advise is: - do intensive ice packs 3-4 times in a day - take a short course of anti inflammatory medication for 5-7 days - start physical therapy like stretching exercises for your plantar fascia initially under supervision of a physical therapist - modify your footwear and try to wear well cushioned sports shoes or leather shoes with insoles to give extra protection to your heels. Normally this should take care of your symptoms, in case pain continues, please let me know. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I am Hockey player, 5 months back I got hit by hockey stick and I consulted two doctors both did not treat well, the first doc said its a fracture and gave me a thumb sling and told me to remove after 3 weeks, after 3 weeks when I removed I was not able to bend my finger and consulted the 2nd doc he said its a sprain and told me to try hot water and salt and try bending the finger everyday. Since then I am trying I am not able to bend my finger fully, and when I give pressure or accidentally get hit, it pains. And when I compare both the fingers I feel something is there in between the joints, the upper and the middle. Please tell me what to do?

Hi since you are at banglore, there are orthopaedic surgeons who specialise in hand surgery. If your thumb joints are not normal, an x-ray shall be needed and these hand specialists may be consulted for evaluation and management. 3 weeks is already late but correction is possible if thumb joints are involved. Although chances are your current doctors may have assessed correctly, and physiotherapy as advised may be a solution. Seek second opinion if you feel subjectively abnormal thumb joints. Thumb is important to grip and all holding by hand of pen, and other objects and extracaution is needed for functionality of it. Best wishes.

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
Backache is a common ailment. Rule out diabetes & vit.D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. SPRING BEDS, FOLDING BEDS OR THICK MATRESS ARE HARMFUL Use no pillow under the head. Any way take IBUPROFEN 200mg OD & SOS x 5days CALDIKIND PLUS (mankind) 1 tab ODx10days You will need other supportive medicines also. Take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take Do ask for detailed treatment plan..Don’t ignore, lest it becomes starting point of a major problem

If you have pain when going to bed it may be due to irritation of spinal nerves. Do a test for yourself: walk on toes by lifting your heals - then walk on heals by lifting your toes. When you get pain severe when walking either of this way there is a chance of spinal nerve getting irritated. Spinal nerve irritation may be due to continuous bike or car driving, wrong sitting posture during work, heavy weight lifting, etc. You need a consultation from a qualified physiotherapist.

Are you taking medicines for the treatment of Osteoporosis?

Are you taking medicines for the treatment of Osteoporosis?

Are you taking medicines for the treatment of Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis literary means porous bones or bones which have developed holes in them. This is an exaggerated terminology because in this condition the bones become thin, weak and less dense. This weakness causes them to break (fracture) easily during minor falls and injuries.

This problem affects both men and women but is more frequent and severe in women. It is estimated that every second woman over 50 years of age will have a fracture of backbone or hip or wrist in her lifetime due to osteoporosis.

Prevention is the best way of avoiding osteoporosis and is achieved by diet and exercise. One should have a good nutritious diet which gives you enough calcium, vitamin D and phosphorus like yogurt, paneer, and green leafy vegetables. Second is to have an active lifestyle by having all kind of exercises. Walking, stationary bikes, small weights, and yoga are recommended.

Once the disease occurs and osteoporosis sets in, one is usually prescribed medicines as there is almost no role of surgery. Even medicines will not improve whatever bones have been lost but will slow down further deterioration.

If you have been taking commonly prescribed medicines (Bisphosphonates-/ alendronate: used weekly or biweekly) for having low bone density, then you need to be cautious. Long-term use of these medicines has now been linked with problems in the jaw bone and atypical fractures of certain bones.

These problems are more likely to occur if a woman takes the medication on and on for many years, as happens with many women found to have osteopenia or strong family history of fractures.

The best way to prevent these complications is to give your- self a break. It is recommended that for osteoporotic women, with every decade of drug use, you should take a break of 1-2 years.

While women with milder problems and having osteopenia, should take a year-long holiday from these medicines after every five years. But always check with your doctor before starting or stopping these medicines.

Hi your scoliosis is called degenerative scoliosis. Which can cause back pain because of wear and tear. Only thing anyone can do is mainly to control pain, but can not be treated completely. With you r other heart problems - you can still try some swimming if possible. Regarding the medication - you should try pregabalin + methylcobalamin will help regarding the pains. Furthur assessment by mri scans and clinically too.

I am 43 years old having pain from right back to foot (seatic nurve) what I should do ?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have mentioned back pain associated with radiating leg pain as your main symptom. If you have these pains with no other neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - you can also take medications for neuropathic symptoms like tab pregabalin or tab gabapentin in small doses for your radiating pain for around 2 weeks - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home initially focusing on swd/ift for back and tens for leg pain. - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
