FAQs about Total Knee Replacement

If you're having trouble getting up to answer the phone or walk to your car or your Knee Pain is affecting your day to day life style, it could be the right time to plan for a TKR. A thorough examination by a Joint Replacement expert should confirm if the time for TKR has arrived. If you are dependent on Pain Killers / NSAIDs on regular basis to keep yourself going, you should immediately consult the Joint Replacement expert.

In few cases, lifestyle modifications, physiotherapy and expert supervised medication, or phototherapy (which involves injecting a specific fluid to strengthen connective tissue) can help manage some knee problems. However, prolonged delay or declining a necessary knee replacement could result in a less favourable outcome. If you have tried medication, physiotherapy, kitchen remedies and suggestions from friends / neighbours and the knee pain is still holding you back from doing the things - it is time to plan a Knee Replacement Surgery.

If you have chronic knee pain that restricts your regular activities like walking, getting up from the chair or floor, constant knee instability, severe deformity of the knee, or If you are dependent on Pain Killers / NSAIDs on regular basis to keep yourself going, then you are likely a good candidate for a total knee replacement.

TRUE ALIGN TECHNIQUE is an indigenous technique developed by joint replacement team at Zydus Hospitals. This is a surgical protocol with emphasis on better surgical outcome and enhanced patient experience.

At the core of the technique is attaining the required bony alignment and ligament / soft tissue balance in Total Knee Replacement Surgery. Alignment & Balance are two most important parameters which have a large impact on surgical outcome

True Align Technique ensures minimal & pain less physiotherapy while at hospital, post discharge patients do not need any further physiotherapy sessions. We provide them with a detailed exercise chart with the core objective of muscle strengthening.

Surgery performed with TRUE ALIGN TECHNIQUE means better aligned & well balanced knee, this ensures equal weight distribution on implanted components and the underlying bone. Which surely increases life of the implant.

Total Knee Replacement (TKR) surgery aims to remove the worn out cartilage and fixes the artificial knee consisting of a femoral part, a tibial part and a patellar part. The femoral part replaces the lower end of thigh bone, 'femur'. The tibial component replaces upper end of the leg bone tibia'. The knee cap or patella is also replaced with a prosthesis or artificial knee cap.
