Services Offered
Joint Replacement

The Centre offers all types of joint replacement surgeries to restore freedom of movement and relieve the pain of degenerated and diseased joints. Surgery often provides dramatic improvement in daily functioning for people with arthritis. Medications and physical therapy services are helpful adjuncts.

 

Some of the latest techniques offered are cementless implants for a customised fit thus prolonging the life of the replacement. However, joint replacements do not last forever. Many people require a second replacement surgery, especially for hip and knee joints. This replacement, or revision, can be more difficult than the initial surgery due to the difficulty in removing the adhesive material used to hold the artificial joint in place.

 

Knee and hip replacement surgery are the most common procedures. We also perform joint replacement surgery for other major joints including the elbow, ankle, shoulder, and wrist joints. In addition, our surgeons have extensive experience in using the newest clinically proven techniques to revise joint replacements that have failed. Rehabilitation following joint replacement is coordinated with other healthcare professionals on the arthritis center team.

 

Our facilities to perform joint replacements are outstanding both in theatre environment and instrumentation. For all joint replacement cases we have Laminar Air Flow operation theatres, pulsatile lavage, pneumatic and cordless stryker power saw/reamer system and complete systems for primary and revision arthroplasty. A computer navigation system is also part of the joint replacement armamentarium.
