Total Hip Replacement

This procedure is the definitive treatment for severe arthritis of the hip joint causing symptoms that are annoying in your day to day life and not adequately controlled by non-surgical means.

Common symptoms include pain in the groin, thigh and bottom. Often activity-related and typically affecting simple things like putting one’s shoes and socks on or being able to reach one’s toenails, getting in and out of cars.

Hip replacements are major operations with low risks. However, with major improvements in biomaterials and surgical techniques, they have become some of the most successful (if not the most successful) operations of the 21st century with excellent results and very high patient satisfaction.

Total Knee Replacement

Similar to hip replacement surgery, a knee replacement is indicated when you have advanced osteoarthritis of the knee joint and non-operative measures, for example, weight loss, anti-inflammatory, physiotherapy, are no longer controlling your pain.

Modern-day knee replacements are a successful way to treat end-stage arthritic knee pain and immobility. It is never really too late to replace the knee so if you can manage with your current arthritic knee, and keep going until it becomes too uncomfortable and is interfering with your quality of life.

Considering knee replacement?

Your Xray or CT Scan results help your doctor to diagnose osteoarthritis based on the medical or physical examination if you:

• Suffer from severe knee pain which limits your daily activities (such as walking, getting up from a chair, or climbing stairs).

• Moderate to severe pain that occurs during rest or awakens you at night.

• Have a chronic knee inflammation and swelling that is not relieved with rest or medications

• Fail to obtain pain relief from medications, injections, physical therapy, or other conservative treatments
