I am Dr. Shailendra Patil, Orthopedist, practicing in Mulund, Thane and Navi Mumbai. I do knee replacement surgery. I take a special precaution is not to cut the thigh muscles. Even after the surgery patient gets the very less pain because of no cut and stitching in the muscle. injections are given to get rid of pain. After 3-4 hours of this surgery, patient starts walking. Patient is ready for discharge even on 2nd or 3rd day. Patient requires physiotherapy and medications after the surgery for few time. Another specialization of mine is in hip replacement surgery. With this surgery, we can save maximum natural bones. Even after the total hi replacement, patient can enjoy all his activities.
There are very minimal chances of hip dislocation after the surgery. A partial knee replacement surgery. A knee has 3 compartments. Inner, outer, knee cap compartment. Arthritis starts from any one of the compartment. In knee replacement 70% of the knee remains natural. Only 30% is treated. Patient feels a natural knee after the surgery. Patient can perform all his activities after the surgery which he was doing prior to it. Like sitting on floor, cross leg sitting, use of Indian toilets and stair climbing. Arthroscopic surgery is my another speciality also known as keyhole surgery. It fixes the problem of ligament injuries, ACL injuries or usually know as sports injuries. We make the small hole in front of the joint and try to fix the problem. To know more about it, you can consult me through lybrate.com.
