If your knee is significantly injured due to arthritis or injury, you may find it difficult to do simple activities such as walking or climbing stairs. Even if you are sitting or lying down, you could start experiencing discomfort. You might want to think about having a Total Knee Replacement Surgery (TKR) if nonsurgical options like taking drugs and utilising assistive devices for walking no longer work. To relieve pain, rectify leg deformities, and enable you to get back to your regular activities, knee replacement is a safe and successful technique.

Who Should Undergo Surgery For A Total Knee Replacement?

Undergo this surgery if you have one of the following conditions:

Tests Performed Before Surgery

The surgeon at Wockhardt Hospitals will assess your health and other factors to ensure that surgery is the best course of action for you. Here are some things they may evaluate and some tests they may order.

Complete Physical Exam – In a physical examination, the surgeon will look for:

Blood & Urine Test – A urine test can reveal information about the condition of your kidneys and liver. You can discover whether you have anaemia or another blood condition that could compromise surgery with a blood test.

Chest X-Ray & ECG – To ensure your heart and lungs are in good enough condition for surgery, your doctor could order an Electrocardiogram (ECG) and a Chest X-Ray.
Your orthopaedic surgeon will decide if surgery is the best option to enhance your function and reduce your pain after they have the results of these tests.

Before Procedure

During Procedure

Hospitalisation is needed for total replacement. Depending on your health and your doctor’s preferences, procedures could change. The patient will be given an anaesthetic on the day of the procedure to ensure they don’t feel anything during it. The anaesthesia will either be general or regional. The medical team will choose the type of anaesthesia that is best for the patient.

A procedure to replace a knee can take around 1-2 hours. The surgical team’s duties throughout the procedure are:

After Procedure

You will then, after the surgery, be taken to a recovery room. The medical staff of the hospital will keep an eye on you for a short while to ensure you come out of anaesthesia without any problems. Additionally, they’ll monitor your pain threshold and vital indicators. You will be transported to your hospital room once your breathing, blood pressure, and pulse have stabilised and you are awake. Having a total replacement surgery often necessitates a few days in the hospital.

People who undergo total replacement rarely leave the hospital on the same day. The length of stay in the hospital might increase if it’s necessary for medical reasons. Soon after your surgery, you will meet with a physical therapist who will create an exercise regimen for you. In the hospital and following release, you will be given an exercise schedule to adhere to

FAQs

You’ll receive detailed instructions from the doctor who treated you. But three to six weeks following surgery, a lot of people may resume their regular routines.

After surgery, most contemporary knee implants endure 15 years or more. With time and regular usage, the plastic implant may start to deteriorate or loosen.



This depends on how much hemoglobin you had before the procedure. Blood loss during surgery is often low when using a tourniquet. However, occasionally following surgery, a transfusion might be advised due to the patient’s hemoglobin level and the outflow of the surgical wound’s drain.

During your hospital stay, your surgeon will manage your treatment. While recovering in the hospital, you’ll probably visit your surgeon multiple times. Two to four weeks following surgery, you will also have a follow-up consultation at the orthopedic clinic.
