Total Knee Replacement- A  Total Knee Replacement (TKR), also referred to as Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA), is a surgical procedure where worn, diseased, or damaged surfaces of a knee joint are removed and replaced with an implant or prosthesis.

Partial Knee Replacement- This is also called as Unicompartmental or Unicondylar Knee replacement surgery. Not everybody suffering with knee pain need a total knee replacement surgery. There are instances where only a small part of knee joint is damaged and a total knee replacement is not required. In such cases a partial knee replacement becomes more suitable which can be done using minimally invasive technique.

Simultaneous Bilateral Knee Replacement-A simultaneous procedure means that both knees are replaced at the same surgery and this type of surgery has benefit s such as single anaesthesia, shorter hospital stay and rehabilitation.

Revision Knee Replacement-Total Knee Replacement surgery may have to be redone or  revised after 15-20 years  after the first surgery as the implants may get worn-out. Our doctors use the most advanced prosthesis and Computer Assisted Surgery (CAS) for Revision Knee Replacements.
