Knee Replacement in India – My Journey from Broken to Replaced Knees
travelled halfway around the world and had both of my legs broke and it was a
pleasurable trip. To clarify I needed both knees replaced!
idea was to operate on both knees at the same time; spend 4-5 days in the
hospital, go to a hotel and come back for physical therapy; I was completely
the first meeting with the surgery team, I was told they would do the left knee
first, then wait a few days and do the right one. I even argued with them! Then
I realised that they knew way more than me and they were COMPLETELY
right. The left knee was done and I even considered just having injections in
my right knee; here again, they were right. That would only be a temporary fix
and I would be in the same position that I came in therewith.
it hurt? YES! But it was the good kind because I can sense that an ending is in
sight. There were a few problems that were handled as opportunities or
solutions and were quickly resolved.
Physical Therapy, the therapist did everything in their power to make sure I
was ready for the LONG JOURNEY home. And after being home for a week I can only
say they did a FANTASTIC JOB! My therapist in the US was extremely impressed
with my movement and ability to walk. Both knees are bending to 128 degrees and
I have already started on the stationary bike.
the nurses, the lovely ladies with smiles that melted the coldest heart: I
cannot even begin to say how well I was treated by all of them and how
wonderful they were.
Keeping: What a great group of people! ALWAYS HAPPY AND SMILING! They helped me
a lot during both the surgeries and tried teaching me Hindi too!
people in the operating theatre, they made me feel very comfortable during both
surgeries. The Dieticians: when they found out that I liked fruit, they made
sure I had plenty.

mobility, better physical activity levels and a much superior overall quality
of life after the surgery. There has also been a significant improvement
in the quality of implants, the materials used now have more endurance and are
more resistant to wear and tear. About longevity, more than 90% of implants

about the cost?
The cost of Knee Replacement surgery in India is one of the
major reasons why people opt for Knee surgery abroad in India. The average cost
for Unilateral or Single Knee Replacement surgery in the US is around the US $
50-60,000, which is more than 10 times what it costs in India. Even this is not
an all-inclusive price as there are additional expenses of outpatient charges
for investigations, physical therapy, follow-up consultations with the surgeon,
etc. Adding all these costs makes the surgery completely out of the budget for
uninsured people. Even for those who are insured, the deductibles and
co-payment themselves make a huge amount.

is as less as $ 4500, thus making the surgery in India very affordable. This is
so, without any compromise on the quality of implant or surgical technique.
