Apollo Hospitals Perform Revolutionary Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement (Resurfacement) Surgery
Date:1/28/2013

deal with Knee Arthritis," says Dr. Prabhat Lakkireddi, who was trained in London for 10 years and recently joined Apollo Health City.

The major advantages of this surgery over standard Total Knee Replacement includes its affordable cost and early rehabilitation which helps patients to return to their normal routine and life style expeditiously. It allows patients to squat and sit cross-legged, an important part of our daily lives in our Indian Culture, which is not possible with the conventional knee replacement surgery. Above all, OrthoGlide allows delay of total knee replacement until patients are older and less likely to require a second knee replacement.

As against a Total Knee Replacement, Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement (Resurface) Surgery involves 2 inches incision, no cutting of the natural bone, the joint is left intact, no cutting of the muscle therefore no bleeding, less painful, low infection, less complications, fast recovery, can walk the same day, the surgery can be performed as a day care surgery, therefore doesn't require hospitalization and cost would range between Rs 1.1 - 1.2 lakhs, which would come down further with mass utilization of the device. This surgery has the approval of the FDA. The Total Knee Replacement is a major surgery involving an incision of 6-8 inches, around half a liter blood loss, bone cutting which means usage of bone cement, high risk of infection, hospitalization of 5 to 10 days and long period of rehabilitation.

This surgery can be opted after conservative oral medical treatments fail. 'MIKRS' offers a cost effective treatment for early and moderate arthritis of the knee joint at virtually half the cost of Total Knee Replacements - which is considered to be the last option for the disease in advance stages with badly degenerated joints.
