The healthy knee joint is formed by the top of the shinbone called the tibia and the bottom of the thighbone, or femur. Your kneecap is called the patella. Cartilage provides padding between the bones and helps assure an effortless, smooth gliding movement of the joint. A special membrane called the synovial membrane produces a lubricant that contributes to the smooth movement of the knee. When it is healthy, the knee is a remarkable mechanism. When arthritis intrudes, however, the knee is unable to effectively cushion the body from impact and stress. The result is erosion of the joint and pain that can gradually hamper your quality of life, reduce your independence and make it hard -- or impossible -- to do the things you want to do.
If you have osteoarthritis (OA), the pain in your knee is being caused by cartilage wearing out. While you can treat the symptoms of knee OA (such as pain, stiffness, and difficulty moving) in a variety of ways from weight loss to medications to injection therapy, there is no cure for the condition and your pain and debilitation is likely to get worse over time.
A growing number of Indian knee joint replacement surgeons are using camera-computer systems to help them apply their skills to the utmost advantage for patients undergoing joint replacement. The goal is to assist surgeons to operate with smaller incisions and greater precision.
Computer-assisted surgery helps surgeons align the
patient’s bones and joint implants with a degree of accuracy not
possible with the naked eye. For the first time doctors have detailed
information allowing them to balance the ligaments and it is given to
them before they make the necessary cuts. The computers also help
doctors who use smaller incisions instead of the traditional larger
openings. Small-incision surgery, most often referred to as minimally
invasive surgery, offers the potential for faster recovery, less
bleeding and less pain for patients.
