Knee Replacement in Obese People
A recent study published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery says
that obese people face more risks when it is matter of total knee replacement
and have more chances of requiring a revision knee surgery than other patients.
Obesity and Osteoarthritis
It is a well known fact that one of the most common indications for knee
replacement surgery is osteoarthritis.
Extra weight puts extra strain on the knee joint which causes
osteoarthritis, which has no cure.. Osteoarthritis is caused by the
inflammation and wearing down of cartilage in the knee joint. Osteoarthritis is
the most common form of arthritis, with millions of people around the world
suffering from it. Since it is a progressive disease, a lot of people eventually
get to the point where knee replacement is the only solution left. Knee
replacement, also known as Total Knee Replacement surgery is the procedure
which involves resurfacing of the knee bones- femur, tibia and patella and the
cartilage between them is replaced with an artificial devise known as implant
or prosthesis. This acts as a cushion between the joints.
Knee replacement in Obese people
Orthopaedic surgeons across the world agree that the surgery itself is “technically
more difficult” in obese people. Not only is the procedure difficult, obese
people have found to have double the rate of infection than people of normal
weight. The rate of infection is higher for both superficial and deep
infections, according to American Academy of Orthopaedic surgeons.
Various studies also point to the fact that risk of corrective surgeries
is almost two times in obese patients as compared to the normal weight
patients. It is again because of the same reason. Extra weight puts extra
stress on the replaced knee joint and causes fast wear and tear of the new
joint, thus requiring a corrective or replacement surgery.
Experts however also add that obese people should not be dissuaded from
undergoing the surgery. If an obese patient has problems with the knee joint
and is affecting his or her activities of daily living, he should undergo knee
replacement surgery keeping in mind the present benefits that it would give to
However, obese patient should be encouraged to lose weight, if possible before
the surgery or definitely after the surgery so as to prolong the life of the

What is triple bypass heart surgery? Though it may sound like a completely different heart surgery, triple bypass heart surgery is a type of open-heart bypass surgery only. It is called triple bypass because the number of grafts done in this procedure is three. It is important to understand CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft) or heart bypass surgery first, to understand what triple heart bypass surgery is. The arteries that supply blood to the heart for its functioning are called Coronary arteries. Any block in the coronary artery may lead to the disruption in the normal working (pumping of blood to the body) of the heart and lead to a heart attack. The blockage in the coronary arteries is referred to as coronary artery disease and if it is severe, the blood flow to the heart can be completely stopped which can be fatal. This blockage can be treated by medicine alone if the blockage is small, but if the blockage is severe, one would require a heart bypass surgery or a CABG( Coronary Ar…

becomes worse with time. The most common cause for back pain, as you get
older, is spinal stenosis or
narrowing of one or more areas of the spine, which most often results from
