Knee replacement involves removing damaged elements of the knee and replacing them with a metal and plastic prosthetic knee joint. A bonding agent such as acrylic cement is used to join the new artificial implant to the kneecap, femur, and tibia. Knee replacements are performed at 600,000-700,000 per year in the United States, making it a relatively common treatment. Bilateral Knee replacement surgery has a very high success rate, with over 90% of patients experiencing considerable pain and function improvement.
Our orthopedic surgeons will assess the state of your knee joint. In some cases, some of the adjacent joints (hip and ankle) may also be evaluated. If these joints are damaged, it may affect the efficacy of your results. Before surgery or bilateral knee replacement, you may be requested to stop taking certain drugs, such as blood thinners or anti-inflammatories.
We provide the following techniques for bilateral knee replacement surgery: Total Knee Arthroplasty — Also known as total knee replacement, this surgical technique resurfaces an osteoarthritis-affected knee. Total knee replacement is required when arthritis has progressed to the point where all of the knee cartilage has degraded. Partial Knee Arthroplasty – In partial knee replacement surgery, only one component of a damaged knee is replaced. It can be used to replace the knee’s inside (medial) part, outer (lateral) part, or patellofemoral part (under the kneecap). The injured section of the knee will be replaced with an artificial implant, similar to a total knee replacement. This surgery minimizes harm to the good bone and tissue in the knee by just replacing the damaged surface of the joint. Bilateral Knee Replacement Surgery — When both knees need to be replaced, this operation is used. Bilateral knee replacement surgery can be done in stages or all at once. Both knees are replaced in one surgical surgery during the same treatment. On the other hand, staged bilateral knee replacement
