Both Knee Replacement

The benefits of Same-Day-Both-Knee Surgery are, that it takes you half the time to recover, from the knee surgery fully. Although you are out of bed and walking on the first day after surgery and climbing stairs 3 days after surgery, it takes approximately 3 months to fully recover from this surgery and have complete freedom, to do what you like.

If you are planning to do one knee surgery at a time, this means it will take (3+3) 6 months for full recovery!. Of course, not everyone is fit enough for both knee surgery. But if you are a healthy person, then it makes sense to have both knees operated at the same time. Most of my patients prefer both knee surgery on the same day and if they are fit, I offer it to them.

Ceramic, Oxinium, and other unproven knee implants are not routinely used at my centre for Knee Replacement. It has been used on rare occasions, where patients have known allergy to certain metals.  The longevity and performance of knee replacement depend on several factors including, the expertise of the performing surgeon, your activity level, body weight, and the Hospital Facilities

We specialise in taking up complicated cases like:

Morbidly Obese Patients

Renal Failure Patients

Previously fractured & inadequately treated knee injuries

Failed surgeries from other centres

Confusion After Surgery May Be a Very Early Sign of Alzheimer’s Disease

Patients experiencing confusion after joint replacement surgery may be in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, according to a study published in Annals of Surgery. Delirium is seen in approximately 1 in 6 people after planned hip and knee replacement surgery. People who develop delirium following surgery are thought to be more likely to develop dementia in the future.

A new study from researchers at Queen’s University Belfast, the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust and University College London shows delirium after surgery is more likely in people who have a toxic form of amyloid known to be involved in Alzheimer’s disease. The findings raise the possibility that delirium during recovery from surgery could be due to underlying, early-stage Alzheimer’s disease.

Patients who had low levels of CSF Ab42 were more likely to develop delirium after their operations. This can help to reduce the risk of delirium for patients undergoing surgery.~
