Knee replacement surgical protocol by Dr.Waleed:
Knee replacement surgery or arthroplasty can calm pain and restore function in painful diseased knee joints. The protocol involves removing the damaged cartilage and bone from the kneecap, shinbone, and thighbone and replacing it with a prosthesis (artificial joint) composed of high-grade plastics, polymers, or metal alloys.
In suggesting whether a knee replacement is recommended for you, our Doctor’s team assesses your knee’s range of mobility, strength, and stability. X-ray shows the degree of damage.
Our team chooses various knee replacement prostheses and surgical protocols while considering your age, activity level, weight, knee shape and size, and general medical health.
When to perform a knee replacement surgery?
The most apparent reason for knee replacement surgery is to treat pain-causing osteoarthritis. Patients having difficulty walking, getting in and out of chairs, and climbing stairs are in need of knee replacement surgery. Although, some have severe pain even at rest. The key reasons for performing knee replacement surgery are as follows:
- Severe knee stiffness or pain that restricts routine activities
- Moderate to severe knee pain while at rest at any time of the day
- Knee deformity
- Chronic knee inflammation or swelling that is non-treatable with medication or therapies.
- Showing no response to treatments like cortisone injections, anti-inflammatory drugs, lubricating injection shots, physical therapies, or other surgeries.
What to expect after knee replacement surgery?
Generally, people undergoing knee replacement surgery feel relief from pain, hassle-free mobility, and a better standard of life. And most knee replacements can last for more than 15 years.
You can resume your routine activities after 3-6 weeks of surgery. You can practice different low-impact activities, such as swimming, golfing, walking, or biking. But strenuous exercise or activities like skiing, jogging, tennis, and jumping should be avoided.
