Development in joint replacement procedures

Are you thinking about knee or joint replacement surgery? Well, you are on the right page with us. Let us help you with recent joint replacement advancements currently going on in the medical industry.

If you are suffering from long-term knee or hip pain that is not responding to medicines positively, it is time to give a second thought to surgery. Recently, there have been many advances in the field of joint replacement which is on the high rise these days. Many patients are skipping on with the painkiller regime of joint pain and stepping towards joint, knee, or hip replacement surgeries. Let us check out the details. 

When should I opt for joint replacement?

Early detection is key to preventing joint pain. If you have tried all the collagen, glucosamine, chondroitin, calcium, and Vitamin D supplements, it's time to think again about your knees. If you are not seeing any pain relief with the medicines, consult your doctor about knee or joint replacement surgery. It is recommended to take supplements at least for 3 months of time in order to see some improvement in the knee and joint pain. 

Advancements in joint replacement 

Recently, many procedures have been developed to preserve the native and original joint. Moreover, robotic-assisted arthroplasty has added unparalleled precision to replacement surgeries as well. 

Delays in getting medical advances can definitely lead to persistent issues and can worsen the already existing problems. For instance, If there is a meniscus tear, ligament injury, or cartilage injury sometimes leading to irreversible damage to the joint can be detrimental to the knee function. 

The success rate of knee replacement surgery 

Knee replacement has been a very misunderstood surgery in India. It is important to note that knee replacement surgery is highly rewarding in terms of pain, relief, and independent mobility. There are no side effects of the knee replacement surgery and the fear is totally unwarranted. It is important to take your doctor’s advice before you opt for knee surgery. Once you are assured that you can be a suitable candidate for knee surgery, opt for it. Knee replacement surgery has become very common nowadays and the success rate of knee replacement surgery is considered GOOD. Remember, knee replacement surgery is highly beneficial surgery for the right patient. 

Talking about an artificial intelligence-enabled robotic system for joint replacement surgeries, the new robotic navigation technology allows the surgeon to pre-plan the surgery by assessing the individual patient’s disease state and predicting the joint stability over the full range of motion. This ensures precision and reduces the chances of malalignment of implants.
