The demand for Ideal Total Knee Replacement is increasing day by day across the world where it is widely believed that the implants of the knee replacement do not last beyond ten years making it a difficult choice especially for younger patients or athletes. 

Usually, the patients who undergo a total knee replacement surgery in Chennai require a longer period of time to recover post-surgery. This major concern is perceived that patients usually take up to a year to recover from post operative pain and trauma. Another area of concern is the longevity of the knee replacement procedures.

The prolonged recovery from past procedural pain and limited life span of implants are two critical factors that trigger apprehension in patients. Keeping these two concerns in mind the concept of ideal total knee replacement was innovated to offer a new lease of life for the patients. Moreover, this type of total knee replacement treatments is considered to be a boon in the medical field of Orthopaedics because it has proven to provide the patient with superior results. 

Ideal Total Knee Replacement – A Revolutionary Procedure

The Ideal total knee replacement is an exciting development in the total knee replacement surgery. Previously, this customized total knee replacement surgery in Chennai simply meant that the knee was studied prior to surgery and the best cuts were made to the joint to optimize the surgical outcome. 

But in recent years, the customized or ideal total knee joint replacement is just that prior to surgery, your orthopaedist will use an advanced computer technology to build your artificial knee so that it fits exactly to the contour of the actual knee joint. 

A key factor in this revolutionary procedure of ideal total knee replacement surgery in Chennai is to protect and preserve the muscles which is particularly true for knee joint replacement or resurfacing. The muscles provide strength, control the knee and play an important role in regaining motion. 

The ideal total knee replacement does not require cutting or detaching muscles around the knee but comes with zero error, prolonged endurance of implants, better motion and rapid recovery from pain.

Ideal Total Knee Replacement by Dr. C. Lenin

Dr. C. Lenin, is the pioneer of the ideal total knee replacement for making this magical procedure truly futuristic. He is an acclaimed expert in this field and offers his patients-minimally Invasive total knee replacement using the cutting edge Subvastus approach which seeks to decrease the problems of traditional extensile exposures that aims for more rapid rehabilitation of patients after surgery. Also, this new age procedure comes with a rotating platform knee which is implanted precisely with zero error.

The minimally invasive procedure compared to the conventional knee replacement procedures quadriceps (muscles covering the front side of the knee) are cut open to place the knee implant (Parapatellar approach). The strength of this muscle is the key factor which influences post operative recovery. 

Dr. C. Lenin has redefined total knee replacement treatment leveraging the Subvastus approach with the ideal total knee replacement technique which absolutely preserves the quadriceps muscle. This muscle-sparing approach aids the patients for a quicker recovery post operative procedure affording them with a quality life in a short span of time.

Fixed Platform Knee Implants Vs Rotating Platform Knee Implants

Whether there are cruciate-retaining or posterior-stabilized designs, knee implants can also be categorized as fixed platform knee implants or fixed-bearing implants and rotating platform knee implants or mobile-bearing implants. 

In a fixed platform, the cushion between the femoral and tibial implant is fixed to the tibial implant which causes stress and pain to the knee due to the rotational torque forces. The tibial implant and bone interface gradually loosens over the years which often results in redo surgeries. 

Rotating platforms were used as an alternative to fixed bearings to provide more natural kinematics besides improved clinical outcomes. Also, in rotating platform implants, the cushion is free to rotate, reduces the wear of the polyethylene, increases the longevity of the implants (made of Titanium and Oxonium) which are highly durable and proven to last besides increasing the comfort levels.

Implants Used in Ideal Total Knee Replacement

Today the longest enduring knee implants in the world are rotating platforms with the robust backing of clinical and lab tests. Dr. C Lenin uses rotating platform knee implant which has a proven efficacy emerging as a viable option among the younger and obese patients.

Procedure of Ideal Total Knee Replacement

The ideal total knee replacement surgery in Chennai is performed by pushing the muscles to the side to expose the joint following the SubVastus approach preserving the muscles unlike the conventional procedures which requires flipping the knee caps and cutting the muscles. This treatment can be cosmetically appealing because the skin is cut only upto 8 – 10 cm. 

Due to this ideal total knee replacement treatment, the bones are not separated from each other but are cut in place minimizing the stretch injury to the structures surrounding the joints. This approach significantly results in less trauma to the leg, provides more mobility and strength in the new knee besides faster healing.

It requires less hospital stay because the patient won’t suffer from any heaviness in the thigh muscles, can lift the leg next day immediately and can also stand and walk independently without any support after the ideal total knee replacement surgery. In other words, the patient tends to forget the surgery is done and will be able to resume their day-to-day activities comfortably.

  • Keep the surgical site dry and clean
  • Plan to take your pain medications 30 minutes before walking
