Parekhs Hospital Gujarat’s 1st only introducing the revolutionary Robotics-assisted surgical procedure

Why do you or your loved one have knee pain?


Knee pain mostly occurs due to Osteoarthritis, also called degenerative arthritis. Between our joints rests a cartilage which is rubbery. This acts as a cushion for the bone and ensures smooth, gliding joint movement. In Osteoarthritis, the cartilage breaks down, causing pain, swelling, and difficulty in moving the joint. In such case, immediate Knee Replacement is advisable.

What is Knee Replacement?


The procedure for replacing a damaged knee joint with a prosthetic implant is called Knee Replacement. It is specifically designed to replicate the shape, motion, and stability of your natural knee joint. After the procedure, patients report relief and a dramatic decrease in pain with an enhanced ability to perform daily activities. A success rate of the procedure is quite high and it is an exceptionally well-renowned remedy for joint pain. Knee Replacement is advisable before the condition worsens.

What makes Robotics-assisted Surgery (Procedure) an ideal choice?


Robotics-assisted surgery is effectively used in Partial and Total Knee Replacements. It offers a vast range of benefits to both, the surgeon and patient, making it the most preferred choice of treatment. The comparison chart follows.
