Knee pain and arthritis and stiffness is treated with a variety of methods. This includes medications, physical therapy and exercises, weight loss methods and surgery to replace the worn out cushions between the joint spaces.
It is when all other medications and therapies fail that patient may consider a Total Knee Replacement or TKR. This involves replacement of the worn out joint with artificial prosthetic joint.
This operation is usually performed under general anesthesia wherein patient will be rendered unconscious during the operative procedure. This operation can also be done under spinal or epidural anesthesia. A cuff like tourniquet is placed on the thighs just before the incision. When inflated this aids in reducing the blood flow to the operative site and reduces the risk of bleeding.
There are basically two approaches to a TKR :

Total Hip Replacement (THR) is necessary when none of the other methods to correct a damaged hip is effective. In this operation the surgeon replaces the ball and the socket with metallic replacements and the cartilage with artificial joint material. Usually THR is done under general anesthesia, it can be also performed under spinal or epidural anesthesia where the anesthetic medicine is injected into a space between the vertebrae in order to numb the legs during the operation without making one lose consciousness.
After the surgery you will be transferred to the bed with a splint to hold the joint in place and avoid immediate movement. You will have to stay in bed with a wedge shaped cushion to keep the hip joint in alignment. Fluids, pain relievers and antibiotics may be given intravenously for a day or two before you can start on a normal diet and take the medications orally.
Early physiotherapy ensures early mobility and rapid recovery. Within a day or two you will be encouraged to walk with the help of crutches, walker or a cane. You may be released from the hospital in a few days to a week.
The benefits offered by this operation are remarkable in terms of reduction of pain and thus improvement of sleep, improvement of range of motion, physical capabilities and quality of life.
