JOINT REPLACEMENT CLINIC
Replacement arthroplasty , or joint replacement surgery, is a procedure of orthopedic surgery in which the arthritic or dysfunctional joint surface is replaced with an orthopedic prosthesis. Joint replacement is considered as a treatment when severe joint pain or dysfunction is not alleviated by less-invasive therapies
Arthritis is a disease where a joint is damaged. There is a stage in arthritis, when the joint is so badly damaged that it becomes painful and deformed. In case of the knee, taking even a few steps becomes painful. Initially one tries to pull on with pain-relieving medicines but after sometime nothing works, and the only way out is surgery. Done at the proper time, for a selected patient by a doctor who knows it all, the operation brings almost new life to the patient. Today, these operations are no longer experimental, and have a success rate of over 95 percent
We at DR.SHELAR’S ORTHO CARE orthopaedic clinic thoroughly examine the patient having severe knee pain/joint pain and investigate the patien taking xrays of affected joint in various positions and after studying entire profile advise appropriate surgery which will help patient to walk a pain free life.
