Total knee replacement is arguably one of the most successful of Orthopaedic surgeries. The success has been documented at various scientific platforms and Journals.
However there are still many myths in the mind of the lay person who is suffering from this crippling problem and prevents them from getting treated for the same.
- Myth : Everyone suffers from Knee arthritis, I should learn to live with it.
Fact: If the Knee pain due to arthritis is so much that is affects activities of daily life, and you find yourself refusing to participate in routine social activities, Knee replacement could be the best option to bring back the lost zeal in your life.
- Myth: I am too young for this surgery
Fact : Joint Replacement is no longer just dependent on the age. Recent advances in materials and design have vastly extended the boundaries for joint replacement.
- Myth: I am too overweight for this surgery
Fact : Surgery is not dependent on the weight, but on the overall medical condition of the person. In fact after the surgery, the ease of movement means losing weight may become easier.
- Myth: I should try to postpone the surgery as much as possible.
Fact : Severity of Knee arthritis can sometimes be so crippling that even small daily activities like going for a walk in the garden , shopping at the market or in the mall can become unbearable. This causes a great loss in the quality of life for that person. Pulling on in such circumstances is not only physically more challenging but may cause emotional issues and depression. In such circumstances joint replacement can be a life changing surgery
