Price effective Knee joint replacement surgery in India with medical tourism

  1. 1. Price effective Knee joint replacement surgery in India with medical tourism Medical tourism provides Knee joint replacement surgery in India at an attractive cost difference then in the countries like UK & UK. Medical tourism can be broadly defined as the provision of 'cost effective' private medical care in collaboration with the tourism industry for patients needing surgical and other forms of specialized treatment. The process of healthcare tourism is jointly facilitated by the corporate sector involved in medical and healthcare as well as the tourism industry - both private and public. Medical tourism has become a common form of vacationing, and covers a broad spectrum of medical services. Medical tourism mixes leisure, fun and relaxation together with wellness and healthcare for the treatment of Knee joint replacement surgery in India. The procedure of Knee joint replacement is called as total knee arthroplasty (TKA). This surgery involves replacing your knee joint with a manmade one. Doctors may replace your knee joint to end pain, stiffness, and loss of function. Knee joint replacement cause: Both chronic osteoarthritis and rheumatoid commonly cause people to lose knee function to the degree that they need a knee joint replacement (total knee arthroplasty or TKA). But knee damage may also stem from injury or infection. Generally, people require a TKA a decade earlier due to rheumatoid arthritis as opposed to osteoarthritis. 1. The most common problems with a Knee joint replacement are: 1.1 Fractures (breaks) of the new knee after a fall or other accident 1.2 Pain from slippage and wear in the new joint 2. Other less common problems are: 2.1 Infection of the joint 2.2 Dislocation, either complete or partial, of the new knee
  2. 2. Knee joint replacement symptoms: Many people who fall after having a knee replacement break the bone below the new joint on which the new knee is anchored. Pain and swelling occur at/or near the site of the Knee joint replacement. Pain can occur gradually as the new joint develops wear patterns that interfere with the smooth function of your knee. 1. Slippage can cause bony surfaces to move opposite each other and cause pain. 2. This pain increases the more steps you take and decreases when you sit. 3. Infection will cause pain, along with frequent redness and swelling at the joint, even when you are at rest. 4. Often fluid will collect at the knee joint from infection and cause a boggy swelling. Fluid may not accumulate with every infection. When to seek medical care: Call your family doctor or orthopedist if you develop gradual pain that feels like slippage in your knee. This generally is an urgent problem, but not an emergency. If you experience any of these, you should go to the hospital: 1. A fracture or dislocation after a fall. 2. New swelling. 3. New pain while resting. 4. Redness or warmth at a joint suggesting infection. 5. Swelling, pain, or redness below your knee that suggests a clot in your vein (deep venous thrombosis). Procedure for Knee joint replacement surgery: When a Knee joint replacement surgery is performed, the bone and cartilage on the end of the thigh bone (femur) and top of the shin bone (tibia) are removed. This is performed using precise instruments to create surfaces that can accommodate the implant perfectly. A metal and plastic knee replacement implant is then placed in to function as a new knee joint. Depending on the condition of the

After Knee joint replacement surgery: You will be encouraged to start moving and walking as soon as the first day after surgery. You will be helped out of bed to a chair on the first day after surgery. When you are in bed, bend and straighten your ankles often to prevent blood clots. You will be encouraged to do as much you can for yourself as possible by the second day. This includes going to the bathroom or taking walks in the hallways, always with someone helping you. Some surgeons recommend using a continuous passive motion machine (CPM) while you are in bed. The CPM bends your knee for you. Over time, the rate and amount of bending will increase. If you are using one, always keep your leg in the CPM when you are in bed. It will help speed your recovery and reduce pain, bleeding, and risk of infection. A combination of many factors has lead to the recent increase in popularity of medical tourism for Knee joint replacement surgery in India. Exorbitant cost of healthcare and medical facilities in advanced countries, ease and affordability of international travel, favorable currency exchange rates in the global economy, rapidly improving technology and high standards of medical care in the developing countries has all contributed their share to this rapid development of medical tourism. India is giving stiff competition in healthcare services for overseas patients with cost of surgery lower by over 30% and in fact cheapest in entire Asia.
