Global Health Care detailed Product Description for
Total Knee Replacement -Unilateral- Orthopedic Surgeon – BLK Super Speciality Hospital, New Delhi
Specialty Surgeon Complete Packaged Procedure for a Knee Replacement by an Orthopedic Surgeon. Knee replacement, or knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve the pain and disability of osteoarthritis. It may be performed for other knee diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis.
Knee replacement surgery can be performed as a partial or a total knee replacement. In general, the surgery consists of replacing the diseased or damaged joint surfaces of the knee with metal and plastic components shaped to allow continued motion of the knee.
Knee replacement and knee cartilage replacement are commonally referred to as the same procedure. The knee itself is not replaced, only the damaged cartilage and bone ends. Knee replacement implants include a metal alloy on the end of the thighbone and polyethylene (plastic) on the top of the tibia and underneath the kneecap. The implant is designed to create a new, smoothly functioning joint that can prevent painful bone-on-bone contact. In total knee replacement damaged cartilage and bone from the surface of your knee joint is replaced with a man-made surface of metal and plastic. In a partial knee replacement one part of your knee joint is replaced. This cost is based on a total knee replacement.
Treatment cost includes the facility fee, physician’s fee, related medical procedures and drugs required to administer the plan of care. Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists and cost of complication management; travel, food and lodging.
Each estimate is presented with the Physicians CV, Facility Information and Treatment Plan, transparently by the provider. There is “0.00” upfront charge to you!
