Our body stays upright because of the skeletal system and then the question “What makes it move?” arises. This is where the joints in our body come into play. These joints actually give our body the ability to perform all these actions, be it walk, run or even dance!
However, these joints in our body undergo wear and tear as we grow older and it worsens as we age. Our knees, being a major factor in making us stand up, face the brunt of these problems. In most cases, Osteoporosis has been found to be the main culprit with the cartilage in our knees wearing away.
You might get lots of answers to this question, surprisingly, from all scientific systems of medicine, be it Allopathy, Ayurveda et al. But it all comes a full circle with the solution, i.e., surgical intervention, especially total knee replacement surgery, which has proved most effective for patients with major cartilage damage
Orthopaedics, like any other branch of medicine, has seen quite a number of innovations, particularly in joint replacements. We have picked out a few of the most prominent ones that are going to change the face of knee replacements:
Robots have recently been welcomed into the field of orthopaedic surgeries. They have brought quite a number of developments to the scene by improving the accuracy, precision, and outcomes of all types of surgeries, including knee replacements.
Robotic surgery actually allows for more accurate positioning and alignment of the components when compared to traditional techniques.
This groundbreaking technology allows implants to be placed into the knee without cement for their initial implant stability. This allows the bone to grow into the implant surfaces making the implants last longer (more than 20 years in some cases).
This process utilizes 3D printing technology to design and print customized implants that can be the best fit for a patient. Orthopaedic surgeons, all around the world, can now make knee replacements more customizable and a closer match to the patient’s body structure.
Knee Replacement surgeries are known to leave behind a big incision or cut over the knee after the procedure. A durable wound closing technique has to be used to actually finish off the process.
This is where Barbed Sutures proves useful with their tiny barbs that allow for a faster and tighter repair of the wounds when compared to traditional ones. They lock the edges of the wound quickly together and a surgeon doesn’t have to tie a knot.
This is a new technique that helps a patient gain the adequate muscle strength required after a knee replacement surgery, easily and quickly. NMES uses a brace to contract the muscles around the knees by transmitting electrical pulses, which will strengthen the knee joint.
