Dr Udai Prakash, earlier this month welcomed Dr Sharat Kusuma also an expert in minimally invasive surgery to Udai Omni Hospital.
Together they performed several partial knee replacement surgeries. The hospital is pleased to announce all patients are doing extremely well. Their star patient was Mrs I. S. aged 79years, had bilateral partial knee replacements walked within 24 hours, with good physiotherapy was up and about to visiting friends, shopping outdoor within 10 days and resuming full activities within 3 weeks.
Both Dr Udai Prakash and Dr Sharat Kusuma feel that the partial knee replacement should be considered by all patients who are thinking of having a total knee replacement.
1 in every 4 patients with advanced arthritis of the knee may be suitable for a partial knee replacement which holds several advantages over the total knee:
- Bone conserving
- Ligament conserving
- Smaller operation
- Smaller incision
- Minimal blood loss
- Much faster recovery
- Normal knee function
- Better movement
- Can play sports like badminton and gentle tennis
- Easier to climb stairs and sit on the floor
Dr Sharat Kusuma, MD, MBA. Dr Udai Prakash FRCS(Eng),FRCS(Edin),FRCS(Tr&Ortho) offer surgical and non surgical treatments of hip and knee joint conditions and specialise in Partial Knee Repalcement.
