How is knee pain treated?

The early-stage treatment of knee arthritis involves management of pain with mild medication, weight reduction, and physiotherapy. However, for end-stage or chronic arthritis which involves a severe decrease in joint space and a consequently significant amount of pain, a surgeon replaces the worn articular cartilage with artificial long-lasting bearing surfaces called modern knee replacement.

What is Knee Replacement?

Knee replacement or arthroplasty is a surgery performed to replace a damaged, worn or a diseased knee with an artificial joint. The goal of knee replacement is to relieve pain, restore proper function of the knee joint, and improve the overall quality of life

Total Knee Replacement (TKR)

In this procedure, the complete knee joint is replaced with an artificial joint, made of metal and plastic components.

Advantage of Knee Replacement surgery :

Worsening of Knee Deformity: The protective bone cushion can become over time leading to increased inflammation induced-joint fluid.

Increased Joint Stiffness: Due to inflammation and lack of mobility, the ligament, joint capsule, and muscle become contracted making the joint stiff. Difficulty in like walking, and sitting.

Ageing: As you delay your knee replacement surgery, lowered endurance, weight gain and pulmonary issues may make you ineligible for surgery.

Reduced Muscle Strength: As mobility is restricted, it takes a toll on muscle stamina making it lose tensile strength.

Knee Replacement surgery : When To Consider surgery?

  1. Severe knee pain and difficulty in standing and walking
  2. Progressive Bowing of knees
  3. Stiffness and difficulty in climbing stairs
  4. Crackling and giving way of the knee on walking
  5. Reduction of overall walking with thigh and leg pain
