Knee Replacement - Steps Involved In Its Procedure!

Knee Replacement - Steps Involved In Its Procedure!

Knee replacement is a procedure where the weight-carrying surfaces of knee joint are replaced surgically to ease the pain or any disability. People suffering from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or psoriatic arthritis undergo knee replacement. All these conditions revolve around stiffness and painful knee. This surgery is usually performed on people aged over 50.

Surgery Types-

Knee replacement is mainly of two main types:

  1. Total knee replacement where both the sides of knee joints are replaced
  2. Partial knee replacement where only single side of the joint is replaced

Procedure-

In case of partial knee replacement with minimal invasion, a smaller incision, which is 3 to 5 inches, is required. This leads to minimal tissue damage, and the surgeon can work between the fibres of the quadriceps muscles. Here, an incision through the tendon is not required. This may result in less pain, recovery time is reduced, and motion is better as scar tissue formation is less.

In total knee replacement, four steps are performed:

  1. Removal of damaged cartilage surfaces, which is at the ends of the femur and tibia, with a small quantity of underlying bone.
  2. Replacement with metal components, which help as a recreated surface of the joint
  3. Incision of knee cap with a resurface made of a plastic button, which is optional based on the case
  4. Insertion of a medical-grade plastic spacer amid the metal components. This creates an effortless gliding surface.

After general or spinal anaesthesia, an incision of 8-12inches is made in the front part of the knee. Joint part which is damaged is removed from the surface of the bones. The surfaces are then formed in a way to hold a metal or plastic artificial joint. The thigh bone shin as well as knee cap is attached to the artificial joint with either cement or a special material.

After Effects of the Procedure-

After the surgery, patients may stay in a hospital for three to five days. Post surgery, notable improvement can be seen after a month or later. The patient is gradually relieved from pain with the construction of new gliding surface during surgery.

There will be slow progress in the movement. In the beginning, one may walk with a support of parallel bars and then with the help of crutches, walker, or cane. After full recovery in about six weeks, people can enjoy normal activities except running or jumping.

Presently, over 90% of total knee replacements function well even after 15 years of surgery. Hence, knee problem is no problem at all!

I'm 22 year old and I'm having injury at my ankles any ointments are not working properly I need to relief from pain. Give any good ointment prescription.

Our suggestion would be to do hot water fermentation along with cold (ice) therapy. You shall also keep a pillow under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes.

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?
It is actually not usual for the pain relief to be permanent, although this can happen. Patients often find that after some time the pain may return, in which case, after a period of several months, the procedure may be undertaken again. There is no one single response to this procedure, it depends on various factors including the specific nerve or nerves and any damage that they have experienced.

Great to know you are such a enthusiatic & good athlete. If you have shooting pain from your back going to your legs it could be spine related issue leading to nerve compression. You may need specific medications and interventions for it. In addition to good physical therapy in form of spine strengthening exercises. Consult a pain specialist or spine surgeon. Its better to go for treatment at early stage especially since your an athlete.

Iam suffering from RA since 2 years whether there is any permanent treatment is there.

MBBS, MD, Diploma in Echocardiography, Diploma in Rheumatology
Internal Medicine Specialist, Kolkata
Mr. Kumar, Rheumatoid Arthritis does not have a permanent cure. Only 8 to 14% of patients may get back to normal that too within first 4 years of the disease. Go through this article for brief knowledge of Rheumatoid Arthritis Vital notes: RA is a chronic debilitating joint disease that affects small joints of hands and foot. More common in females aged 20 to 50 years. It is not synonymous with Rheumatic Fever which occurs in children aged less than 15 years. It has got nothing to do with monthly Penicillin injections and checking ASO titre. Somebody on Penicillin injections or being checked for ASO titre should change the doctor immediately. Untreated disease may cause deformity of hands and foot causing deterioration of quality of life. Erosion of small joints along with loss of entire joint architecture is the basic disease process. Early morning stiffness of joints along with swelling of one or more small joints of hands is very characteristic. Treatment is done with Methotrexate, Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate, Sulfasalazine, Leflunomide and short courses of steroids. Difficult diseases are treated with costly injections called biologics. The motto of treatment is “ catch early, hit hard and achieve and maintain treatment goal “ Lung and cardiac complications are common in long term disease. Rheumatologists but not the Orthopedicians nor neurologist are the best person to treat the disease.Introduction: Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease of mankind where the cells and molecules who are responsible for security of our body, misidentify the joint tissue as foreign substance and start destroying them similar to the way they usually do when a bacteria or virus enters the body. This misdirected attack towards our own body is called autoimmune phenomenon. The worst affected parts of the body are the joints of hands and foot. These small joints that are responsible for performance of day to day activities like eating, holding, writing, typing, washing etc become painful and swollen causing stiffness and deformity. This results in poor quality of life and subsequent depression. Early diagnosis and continuous treatment with specific medicines is cornerstone of treatment. What are the symptoms? Symptoms vary from person to person and also from early stage to late stage of the disease. In early stage there may be mild pain and stiffness involving 1 to 4 small joints of the hands and feet with a typical pattern of stiffness of those joints after rising from bed. During this phase it is very difficult to diagnose the disease. But it is very important to catch the disease in this stage. Researchers have proved that joint damage and bony erosions start even before the symptoms have manifested and hence earlier the treatments better the results. In a full blown case of Rheumatoid arthritis the picture is very classical of a middle aged female presenting with pain and swelling of hand and foot joints along with early morning stiffness that responds to steroids brilliantly. Wrists and the knuckles are predominantly involved. Patients are unable to hold a pen or open the door or do cooking etc. Gripping the wrist firmly causes pain and the hand joints are warm. In a advanced case of the disease we often find elderly people presenting with crooked hands with areas of permanent swelling and skin changes due to chronic friction. The skin fold may contract chronic fungal infections and the joints are swollen and painful. A few other organs are damaged in silence and they create serious problem at the advanced stage of the disease. Lungs, Heart and Blood Vessels are frequently affected. There is accelerated cholesterol deposition in arteries of heart causing increased risk of heart attack and brain stroke. These patients frequently contract infections which are difficult to treat. Involvement of spine or low back is uncommon. However, cervical spine or the neck region is the only part of the spine that may be affected in this disease. What is the difference between Rheumatic Fever & Rheumatoid Arthritis? There is a heaven & hell difference between these two entities. Rheumatic Fever is a disease of childhood. It usually occurs in children aged less than 15 years and is characterised by excruciating pain, swelling and redness of one or more big joints of arms and legs that responds excellently to Aspirin. This disorder may cause cardiac problems and is the leading cause of Valvular Herat disease in India. It is often characterised by some skin rashes and rarely neurologic problems. The disease process, the causative agent and the clinical symptoms are completely different from that of Rheumatoid arthritis. Why Penicillin injections are given on a monthly basis? Patients of Rheumatic fever often suffer a damage to the valves of the heart during the attack of Rheumatic fever. This damaged valves are potential sites of infections that may develop in the later part of the life. This infection is called Infective Endocarditis and may cause serious complications if not addressed properly. Penicillin injections are given as a form of prevention of development of this infection and have got no relationship with the wellness or cure of the disease. People who are aged above 15 years and are being treated with penicillin for the first time for joint pain occurring in small joints of hands should immediately change their doctor and consult a rheumatologist. How is Rheumatoid Arthritis diagnosed? Rheumatoid Arthritis is diagnosed by its classical symptoms and some laboratory investigations. To identify early rheumatoid cases we usually follow a scoring system which includes counting of number of joints involved, the duration of the symptoms, checking ESR and CRP in blood and looking for the positivity of Rheumatoid Factor and Anti CP Antibody. Patients with high values of Anti CP Antibody are very much likely to suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and also they are very much likely to suffer a aggressive disease course Does each and every patient of rheumatoid arthritis develop crooked hands and foot? No. Not all patients suffer from such a devastating complications. There are important characteristics which if present predict severe destructive disease. Females, Smokers, High values of Anti CCP or Rheumatoid Arthritis, Family History of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Early evidence of Joint destruction on X Ray are a few important features who will go forward to develop destructive disease. How Rheumatoid Arthritis is treated? Continuous Physical activity of the involved joints is the corner stone of treatment. More the joints are active, less the damage. Cessation of smoking is mandatory. Smokers tend to develop early joint destruction Medicines that used in treating rheumatoid arthritis are together called Disease Modifying Anti Rheumatoid Drugs or DMARDs. Methotrexate, Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate, Sulfasalazine, Leflunomide are the principal DAMRDs. Of these, methotrexate is the backbone of therapy. Methotrexate is used on a once a weekly basis starting from a dose of 5 mg to 50mg/week and a weekly 5mg of Folic Acid supplement is given to neutralise the adverse effects of Methotrexate. The detail of the drugs is mentioned below. Why I am being given Steroids? Steroids are given for a short period of increased disease activity. In rheumatoid arthritis we do not prescribe steroids in a regular basis. It is often prescribed when the patient is put on the DMARDs for the first time and when there is break through pain or active disease during the treatment. Steroids are used in low dose in a decreasing dosage pattern over weeks and usually are not continued more than a month. What are Biologic agents? Why they are so costly? Biologic agents are highly specific molecules who directly block the action of the culprit chemicals in our body that cause the joint destruction. They are highly researched molecule an d is manufactured abroad. They are usually available in injection formats and have their own side effect profile which includes reactivation of Tuberculosis and other opportunistic infections. Usually patients are checked for latent Tuberculosis Infections, HIV, Hepatitis B and C before the treatment is started. Biologics cause excellent response to the disease causing alleviation of pain and swelling and sense of well being but unfortunately they do not provide any cure. Hence, if biologics are stopped then there are chances that the disease activity may worsen requiring more biologics or aggressive treatment with DMARDs.

Treating Knee Pain With Homeopathy

Treating Knee Pain With Homeopathy

Knee pain is referred to as a condition when the knee joints (which are responsible for walking, running, sitting and standing along with bearing the maximum body weight for most forms of physical activities) are significantly inflamed, giving rise to a severe pain in particular areas or the entire knee joint. There might also be severe stiffness around the knee joint which might make it very difficult to function.

Knee pain might occur due to obesity, old age, different forms of arthritis, severe injury in the knee or the associated ligament or bones, knee cap dislocation, overuse of the knee joint and infections of the knee joint.

Homeopathic Treatment For Knee Pain:

Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homoeopathy is not only to remove the symptom of knee pain but to cure its underlying cause. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several well-proved medicines are available for knee pain that can be selected on the basis of cause, location, sensation, modalities and extension of the knee pain. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person. The effective homeopathic remedies for knee pain are as follows :

  1. Bryonia Alba – This homeopathic preparation is effective in curing knee pain with the symptoms of severe pain in the knee joints during walking. Pain stops when you stop walking or moving and you may also have an abnormal growth in the knee joints. If the knee pain is caused due to osteoarthritis, Bryonia Alba can prove to be a useful remedy as well.

  2. RhusTox – If the knee pain comes with the symptoms of severe pain in damp weather, intense pain after initial movement which tends to gets better in continuous motion, a prescribed dosage of RhusTox might help in the elimination of the pain.

  3. Colchium – The medicine is useful in treating knee pain which worsens due to movement and subsequently improves in warm weather or after getting appropriate rest.

  4. Silicea – This preparation is useful in curing knee pain which retains the sensation of being tightly bound during all times.

  5. Lachesis – If the knee pain is caused due to rheumatoid arthritis, Lachesis can be an effective treatment. Lachesis can also be prescribed if the pain is accompanied with an abnormal growth around the affected area.

These are just a few of the commonly used Homeopathic remedies and are mentioned only to create awareness about the effectiveness of Homeopathic medicines for Knee Pain. It is not advisable to resort to self-medication for any disease.

I have pain in my backbone last week. Now its paining too much. What should I do?
First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket . And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back . you may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * Gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * Surya Namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * In diet vegetable protein of cereal , B complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.
