On the day of surgery:
  • Surgery takes around an hour for single knee replacement.
  • Bilateral knee replacements are done simultaneously if needed.
  • Patients are kept in ICU overnight if warranted.
Knee Replacement Procedure:
  • Preparation of the bone: The damaged cartilage surfaces at the ends of the femur and tibia are removed along with a small amount of underlying bone to make it even.
  • Positioning implants: The removed cartilage and bone is replaced with metal components that recreate the surface of the joint. These implants are cemented or “press-fit” onto the bone.
  • Resurface the patella: The under surface of the patella (knee cap) is resurfaced with a plastic button. Most of the times resurfacing the patella is not required.
  • Insert a spacer: A medical grade plastic spacer is inserted between the metal components to create a smooth gliding surface.
Postoperative period:
  • Patient is made to walk with help of walker by the physiotherapist
  • Knee range of motion & strengthening exercises are taught during the hospital stay
  • Hospitalisation is for 3-4 days
  • It will take 4-6 weeks on an average to get back to normal and walk independently with walker depending on individuals.

  • I was having grade 4 Osteoarthritis of knee due to which I was unable to walk even short distance. I had visited many doctors but was not convinced for knee replacement. Dr.Naven Reddy explained me in detail all aspects and made me feel totally confident about the outcome of knee replacement surgery. As promised by him I was able to walk just 4hrs after surgery with help of walker and there was no pain at all. Now I am able to walk normally even long distances. I am extremely grateful to Dr.Naveen Reddy and his entire team. – Lalitha
  • I came to Dr. Naveen Reddy Ortho for my Knee Replacement Surgery. But he suggested me that this is not right time to undergo the same. As per x-ray my knee is suitable for surgery but as per physical investigation I am not fit for Knee Replacement Surgery now. He asked me to do Knee related exercises and to take limited medicines which has no role of spoiling kidneys. Thanks to the doctor. The hospital staff is very polite. I appreciate the way they treat the patient. Best Orthopedic Doctor in Hyderabad. – Srinivas
