Joint replacement surgery is an orthopedic surgery for the replacement of any dysfunctional, damaged or inactive joints with artificial joints made of plastic, metal or ceramic to replicate the movement of a healthy joint. The artificial or man-made joint is known as prosthesis.
All type of joint replacements has unique set of pros and cons but an almost similar technique for replacing the specific joint.
Traumatic Spine Surgery, Minimal Invasive Surgery, Microdiscectomy, Spondylolisthesis, Spinal Laminectomy and Spinal Decompression. This is performed when spinal stenosis causes a narrowing of the spinal canal that results in pain. The surgeon removes the bony walls of the vertebrae and any bone spurs, aiming to open up the spinal column to remove pressure on the nerves.
Arthroscopy (also called arthroscopic or keyhole surgery) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure on a joint in which an examination and sometimes treatment of damaged ligament/meniscus is performed using an arthroscope, an endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision.

At present, the total joint replacements in India are estimated to be around 40-50 thousand, with knee surgeries growing faster than any other categories, and doubling every year.
A knee replacement is major surgery, so is normally only recommended if other treatments, such as physiotherapy or steroid injections, have not reduced pain or improved mobility. You may be offered knee replacement surgery if: you have severe pain, swelling and stiffness in your knee joint and your mobility is reduced.
Overall cost of joint replacement surgeries depend on joint, age, type of prosthesis used and several other factors for which you need to visit our experts.

Knee replacement, or knee arthroplasty, treats damaged knee joints with metal or plastic implants. It’s a common procedure that’s very effective at reducing pain and stiffness from injury or arthritis. After knee replacement and recovery, you can get back to everyday tasks and activities you enjoy.
Joint replacement surgery removes damaged or diseased parts of a joint and replaces them with new, man-made parts. The goals of joint replacement surgery are to relieve pain, help the joint work better, and improve walking and other movements.
