“Osteoarthritis is a part of ageing and indicates the wear and tear of our joints because of over use. However, when this wear and tear becomes extreme, even normal daily exercises like getting up from the bed, going to the washroom and walking become extremely difficult. This not only impacts the mobility of the affected person and his/her state of mind but also increases risk of diseases due to inactivity. Joint Replacement is a credible and safe option to restore movement and normal lifestyle in affected people. However, it is a very critical surgery that needs highly experienced surgeons who can perform it with high precision,” shared Dr Vivek Logani, Chief of Joint Replacement, Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon.
Knee Replacement may also be necessitated in case of injury, or rheaumatoid arthritis, and may provide much relief to patients suffering from immobility of the knee joint.
