Our hospital is the first to have equipped the Robotic arm for total or partial knee prosthesis placement, says Dr. Mir Jawad Zar Khan a veteran of two decades and a pioneer of innovative approaches in the field of orthopedics and surgery.
The advantages of the robot are numerous. It is more accurate and allows the surgeon to initially scan and model in 3D the knee of the patient, explains Dr. Mir Jawad Zar Khan. It is thus possible to determine the size of the implant, to adapt to the morphology of the patient. Then, sensors are installed allowing the surgeon to have information in real time, during the operation, on the knee, and in particular to see the retraction of tissues. By modifying the position of the implant by a few degrees, it is possible to arrive at a perfect harmony of the implant with the body, which is decisive for the life of the prosthesis.

KNEE REVISION SURGERY
Knee revision surgery, also called revision Total Knee Arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure where the previously implanted artificial knee joint, or prosthesis is replaced with a new prosthesis. Knee revision surgery also associates usage of bone grafts. The bone graft might be an autograft, meaning that the bone is taken from another area of the patient’s body; or an allograft, in the sense that the bone tissue is taken from some other donor.
REASONS FOR KNEE REVISION SURGERY
A knee joint might fail due to the below reasons:
- Aseptic Loosening
- Wearing of plastic
- Improper alignment
- Unstable Joint
VARIOUS CATEGORIES OF KNEE REPLACEMENT SURGERIES
There are basically two kinds of Knee replacement surgeries namely the TKR (Total Knee Replacement) and UKR (Unicondylar / Partial Knee Replacement). Knee Replacement is a surgery that’s done as a part of the knee or done only over a partial area or a total knee replacement. Typically, the surgery removes the damaged joint and the surface is replaced with either metal or plastic surface which allows ease of movement in the knee joint area. It’s also called as Implant or Prosthesis.
SITUATIONS WHEN TKR COMES TO RESCUE
Activities such as walking, climbing stairs and getting in and out of chairs are restricted, hence rest is advised. Restricted knee function or mobility, such as chronic knee stiffness and swelling that restricts an individual from stretching or bending in the knee area. When other approaches have failed to provide relief such as resting, weight loss, physical therapy, support of other walking aid, medications, braces and surgery which have failed to relieve the pain..
WHAT TO EXPECT POST TKR SURGERY?
At our Hospitals, under the expertise guidance of Dr. Mir Jawad Zar Khan the results of a Total Knee Replacement are outstanding. The operation relieves pain in patients & patients can walk without any support.
At our hospital we take utmost care that our patients are treated in the most sterile conditions. Our Class100 OTs matches to the most strict infection control standards, we have mastered the usage of Surgical Spacesuit worn by our surgeons while performing the surgery to eliminate any chances of infections. Positive Air pressure in the OTs ensures that the air outside the complex makes the OT completely sterile.
PARTIAL KNEE REPLACEMENT (PKR)
A partial knee replacement is an alternative to total knee replacement for some patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. This surgery can be done when the damage is confined to a particular compartment of the knee.
In a partial knee replacement, only the damaged part of the knee cartilage is replaced with prosthesis.
Patients with medial, or lateral, knee osteoarthritis can be considered for partial knee replacement. “Medial” refers to the inside compartment of the joint, which is the compartment nearest the opposite knee, while “lateral” refers to the outside compartment farthest from the opposite knee. Medial knee joint degeneration is the most common deformity of arthritis.

What are the advantages of partial knee replacement over total knee replacement?
Compared to total knee replacement, partial knee replacement better preserves range of motion and knee function because it preserves healthy tissue and bone in the knee. For these reasons, patients tend to be more satisfied with partial knee replacement compared with total knee replacement.
There is also less blood loss during surgery, and knee motion recovers faster with partial knee replacement.
You can start moving the knee the day after surgery. Your knee function should return rapidly and with less pain than with total knee replacement. You will work with a physical therapist to mobilize the knee while in the hospital and for two to four weeks after discharge. You are usually discharged no later than one or two days after surgery.
You should be back to full activity in about 6 to 8 weeks. Impact exercises or jogging/running may not be recommended because the replacement includes a bearing surface that can wear. However, activities like tennis, skiing, and other sports are okay. This, of course, is why partial knee replacement is even being considered — to return you to activities you enjoy.
