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 impl

Gastric bypass surgery, one of the most popular weight loss surgeries, is a true blessing to many of us who suffer from morbid obesity.  How does Gastric Bypass surgery work? Gastric bypass surgery alters your normal physiological response to food. It does this by reducing the volume of your stomach. The bariatric surgeon divides the patient’s stomach into two parts and connects the upper part with the lower small intestine. The lower part of stomach is sealed off from the upper region. The patient naturally feels ‘full’ with less food since his/her
