Implants Used

Implants Used for Joint Replacement Surgery
 
Knee joint is basically a hinge joint with some rotational and gliding movement. The parts come in 3 - 4 pieces of varying sizes to suit different sizes of knees. They weigh around 500 grams in all. Contrary to popular belief the knee joint is not entirely removed and replaced with artificial parts. Instead only the worn out surfaces are sliced away, using sophisticated jigs and occasionally computer guidance and resurfaced with a combination of metallic and plastic implants.
 
The Femoral component is made up of Cobalt-Chromium alloy, the Tibial component of Titanium and the middle spacer of High Density PolyEthylene. Occasionally the knee cap is also replaced which is usually made of the same Polyethylene.
 
Since almost all our patients prefer only imported implants for their surgery we do not stock indigenous made ones. However if you would like to save on costs and prefer Indian implants we can make it available on special request, which needs adequate notice.
