Total Knee Replacement
Partial Knee Replacement
Many people get bad arthritis of the knee at a young age. While total knee replacement is offered to many younger patients across the globe, it is better to avoid it when possible in the less than 60 age group. In countries like India where arthritis is often predominant on one side of the knee, partial or ‘Unicompartmental’ knee replacement provides for cure of the patients’ symptoms while allowing a lot more activity for a young patient as compared to a total knee replacement. It can also be easily changed to a total replacement after wearing out, whereas revision of a total replacement is far more complicated surgery.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction
Ligament injuries are common in the knee not only out of sports but also in traffic accidents and in trivial falls especially in ladies. The ACL can rarely be repaired and mostly the body requires a newly created ligament. This surgery is much easier than commonly perceived as it is done without any open wound, with keyhole surgery; one can walk taking full weight on the leg the same day of surgery and do stairs as well as go home the next day. The use of braces after surgery is also obsolete in specialist centers around the world. In many instances such ligament injuries can be managed without surgery too; most required surgeries can also be scheduled as per logistic convenience.
