I am Dr Hardik Ghundiyal, practising orthopaedics surgeon since 7 years in Bombay. I am mainly into minimal Invasive Joint replacement surgeries.
Knee Replacement surgeries have been done all over the globe since last 30 years. And they have been very successful. In the past, if the patients had arthritis, we could only give them pain killers. But as if now when a patient comes with knee stiffness, pain, deformity, we can provide them with the total knee replacement. We always give a non-surgical conservative approach to the patient when the patient comes with arthritis. If that fails and they are not relieved from the pain, then we give them the option of total knee replacement. About 5,000,00 total knee replacement is being done all over the globe every year. Most of the people who have experienced knee replacement they think that they could have done it before because the pain relief is so good.
When we do a total knee replacement, we do not cut 2 inches or 3 inches of bone from the thigh, instead, we do re-surfacing of the knee. In the normal knee, there are smooth surfaces on the both sides which glide easily when the movement of the knees are done. But in the arthritic knee, the surface is pitted and get rough because of which the pain is there when they glide on each other.
In the total knee replacement surgery, we change the rougher surface into a smooth gliding prosthetic material so that they glide on each other without any pain and patient get pain free movements. The material has been improved drastically from last 15-20 years. The process however remains the same but the plastics, the poly ethylene which is used in between the metal surfaces have been improved drastically by durability as well as the strength. The research has improved the longevity and the prosthesis.
During surgery, we use a muscle sparing approach, that means we do not cut-open muscles while doing the surgery. The patient is mobile as early as possible. The patient is able to stand and walk up on the same day of the surgery. If a patient is comfortable, we make them able to walk also. Hence the hospital stay is reduced and it is minimized to 2-3 days only.
The recovery of the patients depends on how active was the patient pre-operative. Some patients need a walker, walking aid, some patients are mobile without any support. Most of the times, you can get back an activity within month time a surgery.

There is a general belief that homeopathy is a line of medicine that takes a holistic look at the human body and not in a localized manner. Every condition is diagnosed based on its history and the underlying cause and the other parts of the body the disease or disorder may be connected to. The case of joint pains and arthritis is no exception. If you feel pain in your joints and approach a homeopathic practitioner, the process will be to make a diagnosis in this way only.
It’s Not Always About Medicines
There is this misconception that homeopathy is all about medicines and concoctions that are prescribed for treatment of diseases. It is usually more than that. As mentioned above, the practitioner will consider several aspects. These will include the style or the way the pain is experienced by the patient. For example, a person who feels pain in the knee joints may feel severe pain when waking up in the morning, but the pain will reduce in intensity and relief will be experienced as he or she moves around. This may repeat alternately while resting and when being active. This kind of pain will be treated with a different remedy than the direct localized application of a gel or other preparations. Alternately, when the pain shoots up as the person moves, the treatment needs to be of a different kind.
A Large Volume of Research is Undertaken
Practitioners of homeopathy themselves and others who are keen to know if it is really that effective as a form of medicine undertake a lot of research on the way homeopathy approaches its methods of treatment. In these experiments, the researchers from 2 groups with similar conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and offer them treatment, one following homeopathy and the other a different method. And the results have always proven that homeopathy has evolved better ways to address the condition and offer longer lasting remedies.
Lifestyle Choices Reviewed and Corrected
Another additional form of the remedy suggested within homeopathy for the treatment of joint pains and arthritis or any other form for that matter relates to the changes being suggested in the lifestyle of the patients.
These are besides the medicines prescribed for the remedy and will cover the food intake; things that should be avoided or taken in larger amounts, dropping certain habits and inculcating others and so on. Consumption of alcohol, for instance, is generally discouraged because it interferes with the internal medicine being taken. This is true for most allopathic drugs also, but it is not given the same emphasis there as it is done in homeopathy.
There are other similar suggestions made during the treatment of joint pains through the homeopathic route which comprises medicines and counselling. The medicines will also have the external components and the internal ones. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
