Total Knee Replacement

Total Knee Replacement (TKR) is usually recommended to patients whose quality of life is severely affected due to knee pain. Usually these are patients who have not experienced adequate or long-term relief from with non-surgical treatments such as physical therapy, weight management, medication etc. Each patient is unique but generally those who experience one or more of following symptoms are candidates for knee replacement.

Total Hip Replacement

Total Hip Replacement (THR) surgery involves the removal of arthritic bone ends and damaged cartilige, and replacing them with hip implants that are designed to replicate the hip joint. During surgery, the femur (head of the thigh bone) and the acetabulum (hip socket) are replaced. Typically, the artificial ball with its stem is made of a strong metal, and the artificial socket is made of polyethylene (a durable plastic).

An anchoring pin is mounted into the bone and tracker
mounted  on anchoring pin. This tracker interacts continuously with Navigation system during surgery. A navigation tracker is then mounted to the anchoring pin. This tracker continuously interacts with the Navigation system. Using imagery from the infrared cameras, the computer creates a highly detailed 3D model of the knee. After studying the model, plan for repairing the joint is created. The computer helps determine the precise angle of cuts that need to be made, the size and shape of the implants needed, and the proper alignment of the implants. The system also gives the surgeon real time feedback during the surgery and reduces chances of error by  alerting the surgeon to  potential pitfalls before  they are performed.

Pelvic bone is a very complex structure. This is bone is felt inside your waist region. It protects vital internal structures and has extensive blood supply. Acetabulum is a cup or a socket like structure forming a part of your hip joint. This participates in the ball and socket mechanism of the joint. Acetabulum is a part of your pelvic bone. Acetabulum carries your body weight across your lower limbs and hence it is important to fix any fractures of this bone accurately to prevent joint pain and arthritis in the future.Pelvic-acetabular fractures are one of the most severe orthopaedic injuries. Pelvic fractures are prone for severe internal bleeding and can cause shock and death. Acetabular fractures can lead to long term morbidity like hip pain, arthritis and difficulty in mobilisation.
