New hope for knee arthritis patients

Much has been said about high incidence of diabetes, cancer, hypertension and HIV in India. A recent study suggests that osteoarthritis beats them all to claim the first slot among ailments in India. Over 18 Crore Indians suffer from joint-related problems and the cases are expected to grow further.

Arthritis is not a symptom of ‘getting old’. It is a degenerative disease of the joints that is not necessarily a part of the aging process. It curbs daily activities such as climbing stairs, walking, and even getting in or out of the bed. It can make people feel old, even when they are in the prime of their life. It is so incapacitating that a few patients even suffer from depression due to this. So far, there were no satisfactory options for them, except for physiotherapy, painkillers and activity restriction. Some had to undergo total knee replacement. But now, there is hope due to a high precision, minimally invasive surgery, which provides immediate pain relief, fast recovery and fast return to an active lifestyle.

Surgery is a definite treatment for OA when all other means of treatment are not helping. With the newer advances the surgery has become more and more patient friendly and specific. With early diagnosis and intervention we can part of the knee which is unaffected and replace only the affected part. We now do replacement with minimal invasive techniques so there is less blood loss and patient can be mobilised early.

With the better understanding now the implants are designed which are more advanced with following advantages:

  • High flexion allowing patients to do squatting, climbing stairs etc. very easily
  • Very high surface strength of the implant ensuring extremely less wear and more load bearing
  • The special coating of implant done with a patented PVD technology, ensures a very smooth interface between the knee system
  • Extremely high acceptance of implant in body due to the inert metallurgy, hence no allergic reaction

With these dramatic advances in knee implants, patients can look forward to successfully overcoming arthritis at an early stage of the disease and returning to active lifestyle once more.
