Knee Replacement in India with Advanced Computer Navigation

Precision in Orthopedic surgery

Orthopedic surgeons all over the world agree that the long term success of knee replacement critically depends on how well or precisely the implant is positioned. Most knee replacements are done using traditional alignment jigs and cutting blocks, with which even experienced surgeons face limitations in proper balancing and alignments of the new knee. And thus resulting in pre-mature failure of implants in many cases.

Knee assisted navigation has revolutionized the technique of performing joint replacement surgery. The surgery allows complete precision and 100% accuracy with which the implant is placed, thereby completely eliminating the chances of pre mature failure of implants due to mal-alignment. In other words, the scope of human error in doing the surgery is completely eliminated. The surgeon can make absolutely precise cuts in knee and corrects the deformities with computer navigation.

Because the accuracy is high, the life of the implants also increases by many years- usually the joint replacements done with computer navigation last for 25 years or even more.

How is computer navigation assisted knee replacement done?

The technique uses sophisticated software, cameras, light emitting diodes in coordination with the computer to assist the surgeon.

navigation system for joint replacement

The surgeon carefully attaches the light emitting diodes to the patient’s leg which communicates with a camera attached to the computer creating the digital reproduction of the surgery. The surgeon conducts a series of movements on the patient’s leg which are captured by the camera and sent to the computer for processing. This includes range of motion, ligament tension, component position and various other medical parameters which the computer uses to create a unique anatomic “model” of the knee. The computer then keeps processing and displaying this information throughout the surgery for the surgeon to know all important distances and angles. This navigation helps the surgeon with bone cuts, positioning the implant, balancing of ligament various other aspects helpful for precise implant placement. Human errors which otherwise go unnoticed are quickly seen and simultaneously corrected by the surgeon.

Various other advantages of computer assisted knee replacement surgery are:

  • Lesser blood loss
  • Quick recovery
  • Decreased rehabilitation periods- patients are able to walk unaided and climb stairs within a few days.
  • The navigation surgery virtually eliminates expensive and radiation intensive CT and MRI scans before the surgery

Alignment during knee replacement surgery is very important for the long term durability and functioning of the replaced knee. It is the cuts in the bone which determine the position/ alignment of the prosthesis and in conventional technique, the surgeon depends upon indirect methods and surgical “eyeballing” to guide the cuts. Improper or wrong alignment can result in an “unbalanced” knee resulting in early wear and tear and thus failure of implant; while computer assisted replacement ensures that the actual life of implant is able to match the “ideal life” of the implant.

By the time people reach 50, most people’s spine show at least some signs of age-related wear and tear of the disks and of facet joints, which can grow to be enlarged and arthritic. These changes can exert pressure on the spinal cord and nerves leading to pain, numbness or weakness in arms or legs or other problems adversely affecting the quality of your life.

Triple Bypass Heart Surgery in India– Important Things to know

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…
