Reclaiming Mobility and Freedom: The Journey of Knee Replacement Surgery at ILS Hospitals

Knee pain, often accompanied by reduced mobility and compromised quality of life, is a common challenge faced by many individuals. When non-surgical treatments no longer provide relief, knee replacement surgery emerges as a transformative solution. At ILS Hospitals, we specialize in advanced knee replacement surgery, helping individuals regain mobility and embrace an active lifestyle.

Understanding Knee Replacement Surgery

Knee replacement, also known as knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure that involves replacing damaged, diseased, or worn knee joints with artificial joints made of metal, plastic, or a combination of both. This procedure is designed to reduce pain, restore knee function, and improve the overall quality of life.

Indications for Knee Replacement Surgery

  • Osteoarthritis: A degenerative joint disease causing the breakdown of cartilage, resulting in pain and stiffness.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: An autoimmune disorder affecting the joints, causing inflammation, pain, and deformity.
  • Post-Traumatic Arthritis: Arthritis that develops after a serious knee injury, leading to pain and instability.
  • Avascular Necrosis: Loss of blood supply to the bone, causing it to die and collapse.

  • Comprehensive Rehabilitation: Our multidisciplinary approach includes post-operative rehabilitation to enhance recovery and facilitate a faster return to daily activities.

The Knee Replacement Procedure

  • Pre-surgery Evaluation: The patient undergoes a thorough evaluation, including physical examinations and imaging tests, to determine the necessity and extent of knee replacement.
  • Anaesthesia: During the surgery, the patient is given anaesthesia to ensure a pain-free experience.
  • Incision and Reshaping: The surgeon makes an incision, removes damaged surfaces of the knee joint, and reshapes the bones to accommodate the artificial joint.
  • Implant Placement: The artificial joint components (made of metal and plastic) are precisely placed to mimic the function of a natural knee joint.
  • Closure: The incision is closed, and the knee is stabilized to complete the surgery.

Recovery and Rehabilitation

  • Hospital Stay: Patients typically stay in the hospital for a few days post-surgery for monitoring and initial recovery.
  • Physical Therapy: Rehabilitation begins soon after surgery, focusing on strengthening the knee, improving mobility, and aiding full recovery.
  • Pain Management: Medications and physical therapy help manage pain and discomfort during the recovery phase.

Knee replacement surgery at ILS Hospitals is more than just a medical procedure; it’s a chance to reclaim an active and pain-free life. Our dedicated team of experts, state-of-the-art facilities, and personalized approach ensure that each patient’s journey through knee replacement surgery is smooth, successful, and life-changing.
