Medications, walking supports and altering activity levels may no longer be helpful after the knee disease progresses beyond a certain level. At this stage, total knee replacement surgery is the best treatment option, as it corrects leg deformity, relieves pain and allows you to easily perform your daily activities. High flexion knee replacement surgery is the latest advancement in replacement surgery and is performed by highly skilled surgeons at SBJH, which is one of the pioneers in TKR. After TKR, you will experience relief from symptoms and also be able to do difficult tasks like kneeling and squatting.
Surgery is commonly done under general anesthesia (patient completely unconscious), or using spinal or epidural anesthesia.
Why choose SBJH
Unicompartmental Knee Replacement Surgery, also known as partial knee replacement, is done if just one part of the knee is damaged. Unlike TKR, where all three parts of the knee joint are replaced, UKR replaces only one. SBJH surgeons are adept at UKR surgeries.
Unicompartmental knee replacement surgery is a boon for young arthritis patients, as it enables them to lead a normal life, perform activities like sitting on the floor, and only a small part of the knee is actually replaced.
