The cost of Knee Surgery Depends on the following factors.
The final cost can only be calculated after Consultation with the doctor.
Knee replacement surgery, also known as arthroplasty, can help reduce pain and restore function in severely damaged knee joints. Cutting away diseased bone and cartilage from your thigh bone, shinbone, and kneecap and replacing it with an artificial joint (prosthesis) composed of metal alloys, high-grade resins, and polymers is the process.
An orthopaedic surgeon evaluates your knee's range of motion, stability, and strength to determine whether a knee replacement is suitable for you. X-rays aid in determining the degree of the damage. Your doctor can select from a number of knee replacement prostheses and surgical procedures.
Knee replacement surgery is considered a significant procedure, and as such, the patient is anesthetized. To begin, the surgeon will make an incision over the front (midline) of the knee and remove damaged bone surfaces from the femur and tibia. Between these two bones, an artificial space is produced.
This space, which was previously occupied by healthy cartilage, is now filled by a metal plate and a polymer insert known as a 'spacer'. These components are meant to mimic healthy joint mobility by recreating the joint surface and moving like natural joints. The kneecap's undersurface may also be cut and resurfaced.
Severe knee pain that limits your everyday activities.Moderate or severe knee pain while resting, day or night.
Knee replacement surgery is relatively safe and effective for most people.
You will stay in the hospital for 1 to 2 days after having hip or knee joint replacement surgery.
The best sleeping position just after your surgery is sleeping on your back. You should make sure that your operative leg stays as straight as possible.
