Knee replacement is one of the most important Orthopaedic surgical advances of this century. When medicines, using walking supports and physical therapy fail to manage the knee pain and swelling, one should consider total knee replacement. Newer knee joint implants have better quality and they last longer. They are so designed that a patient can even sit cross-legged. As female’s bony structure is different from males, hence specially designed knee implants are used for them.
Dr Neeraj Bansal informed that some latest advancements in joint replacement surgery are the minimally-invasive surgery, stitch less Surgery where the size of incision is half the size of conventional incision, which is more cosmetic. Some new hip prostheses are surface hip replacement prosthesis where the bone cut is less, hence the original bone is saved as only the surface is replaced.
