Types of Knee Replacement

There are different types of knee replacement:

  • Total knee replacement

It involves removing the weight-bearing, damaged knee cartilage and the bone to replace it with the plastic prosthetic joint or man-made metal to replicates the knee function. A highly polished strong metal alloy replaces the femur portion of the knee joint with a strong durable polymer tray replacing the tibia portion of the joint and plastic replacing the patella and kneecap. The surgery will take around 1 ½ to 3 hours.

  • Partial knee replacement

It is the choice if only one part or compartment of the knee is severly damaged and needs replacement instead of the entire joint. An implant for the tibia, femur or patella portion will be surgically inserted through a small incision. In case of two or more compartments of the knee being damaged, then the partial knee replacement is not the best treatment choice. Generally, the hospital stays are shorter perhaps overnight.

  • Revision knee replacement

It involves removing and replacing a prosthetic knee joint which is worn out or that which has failed. It can be repeated multiple times but the scar tissue formation from previous knee surgeries can make this procedure increasingly difficult for each of the knee replacement.

  • Minimally invasive knee replacement

The newer minimally invasive knee replacement or the MIS uses the specialized techniques allowing a three to five inch incisions instead of the standard eight to 12-inch incision. The small incisions offer recovery with potentially less pain, less scar tissue formation and faster healing period. The hospital stay will be one to three days.

  • Bilateral knee replacement

For patients who have had both the knee been equally affected by the cartilage damaged with decreased mobility, the bilateral knee replacement is an option. During this procedure, both knees will undergo any of the knee replacement type surgeries at the same time.

  • Computer assistance knee replacement

Knee replacement using the computer assisted surgery is a computer driven technology which uses the computer guided imagery during surgery. This will aid alignment of the knee components during the surgical procedure which renders the alignment more accurate. The high level of alignment accuracy will increase the longevity of the knee replacement from the top knee surgeons in Delhi Gurgaon at the knee replacement in Delhi Gurgaon Hospitals.
