Joint replacement is the surgical process of removing the abnormal bone and lining structures of the joint and replace with a new artificial craft made up of special metal or plastic or specific kinds of carbon-coated implants. The surgery aims at helping patients experiencing chronic pain due to joint injuries or joint degeneration. Considered as one of the most common orthopaedic procedures joint replacement surgery can help the patient to enhance their range of motion which was retrenched earlier due to the orthopaedic problems
The surgery can be of two types:
- Partial joint replacement surgery (replacement of only one part of the joint)
- Total joint replacement surgery (replacement of the complete joint)
Our multidisciplinary team of orthopaedic experts provides each patient with world-class treatment approach using minimally invasive techniques, Computer-aided Navigation system, and other advanced technologies.

A patient might have to perform some diagnostic tests like blood tests, an X-ray and possibly an MRI for determining the actual cause of your pain and the problem in the joint. During the surgery, a surgeon removes the damaged section of the joint using a minimally invasive approach by making a small incision. The damaged section is replaced with an artificial joint (prosthesis) usually constructed of metal, ceramic and very hard plastic that helps in reducing pain and improve function. The two most common procedures of joint replacement surgery are
- Hip Replacement
- Knee Replacement
