Arthritis" is a specialty of MIOT Hospitals. In
Arthritis all the movements in the Joints are restricted by
pain. Beyond a certain stage, pain killers, injections,
massage or any other form of healing may not be adequate.
Once restriction of movements occurs in the joints, there is
need for replacement.
Arthritis of the
knees is extremely common in India. Replacement of painful
crippled arthritic knees is a leading specialty of MIOT
Hospitals. MIOT Hospitals pioneered Total Knee Replacement
Surgery three decades ago and is the leading practioner in
this field. MIOT has performed more than 2,500 Total Knee
Replacements successfully over the last 5 years without
infection or major complications, making it the preferred
destination for knee replacement surgery.
Laminar Air Flow operation theatre with total body exhaust
suits for the operating team keeps the incidence of
infection much below global standards. Special anaesthetic
techniques with combined spinal epidural anaesthesia and
nerve blocks enable us to offer knee replacement to the
elderly with coexisting multiple medical disease conditions.
Every type of knee deformity from the mild to the most
severe can be corrected with a variety of knee prostheses,
including the latest Hiflex knee offering 150 degree
New Techniques - Computer Navigated Total Knee Replacement
MIOT is also a pioneer in Computer Navigated Total Knee
Replacement which helps in ligament balancing and
placement of the prosthesis with zero error. This should
vastly improve the longevity of the joint. Considering the
functional demands of the patients and faster recovery, MIOT
has specializes in Minimally Invasive Total Knee
Replacement. Here Total Knee Replacement is performed with
just a small 8-10 cm incision and the patient can recover
completely in 3 weeks time.
After surgery patients are immediately put on a CPM
(Continuous Passive Motion) Machine and encouraged to walk
the next day, which decreases the incidence of Deep Vein
Thrombosis. They are climbing staircase by the 5th day and
are discharged on the 7th post – operative day.
Revision Surgery of the Knee
Failure of Total Knee Replacements done elsewhere due to
implant failure or polyethylene wear and loosening can be
remedied by special Revision Knee Prosthesis. Patients
with Knee Replacement, who have accidents and periprosthetic
fractures, can also be internally fixed with special
implants. The results are excellent and tailor made to suit
each individual patient.
