Unicondylar Knee Replacement Recovery: Day 10
Dhana Laxmi B was suffering from localised knee pain for quite some time. She came down to visit Dr. Adarsh to get treatment. Dr. Adarsh made a note of her discomforts after a careful physical examination. He suspected Anteromedial Knee Osteoarthritis. Special X-ray reports supported his prediction.
Dr. Adarsh performed Unicondylar(partial) Knee Replacement on both her knees on the same day. The video shows her improvement on the 10th day after the surgery when she revisited the hospital to remove her sutures. She can now walk and even climb stairs as comfortably as she could before the pain set in.
Owing to the good results of Unicondylar(partial) Knee Replacement surgeries in Sunshine Hospitals performed by Dr. Adarsh, this surgery is becoming popular among the eligible arthritic patients. Dr. Adarsh is one of the very few surgeons in India who is skilled at doing this procedure. He has performed 4 UKR surgeries in one day in the previous month and 3 more in one day of this month. In his own words, “It’s about finding the right patient who would benefit the most from this particular surgery.”
