Hi there, my name is Mrs. Babarinde, I am a Nigerian citizen. A couple of weeks ago I had my successful Total Knee arthroplasty surgery in India. I really want to thank my medical consultant – Indian Healthguru Group for making things possible. Otherwise, the pain and agony wrecked all havoc in my life wherein I couldn’t see a dead end to my sufferings. I was engulfed with a constant pain in my knee area. But after my Total Knee arthroplasty surgery in India, I am a free bird to fly in the air. A couple of weeks ago I was not the same person which I am today. I was struggling from my constant pain since the last 6 months in my knee and couldn't bend it. It was very difficult for me to get in and out of a car and to carry out my day to day activities. I went to a Hip/Knee hospital in Nigeria but soon had to return dismayed and distressed since I was not satisfied by the service. I then decided to consult few friends based in some other countries including India. After having a substantial research over the internet and comparison on various factors I found India to be a better option. I thus contacted a medical health consultant called Indian Healthguru Group, a Medical consultant in Indiato have my Total Knee arthroplasty surgery done in India. They really appreciated my move to visit India for my treatment, thus with couple of e mail exchange and few phone calls, they worked out some good package for my Total Knee arthroplasty surgery in India.
In India, things were as per the plans and I had to just follow everything as per the schedule. Right from the doctor to the hospital, everything was chalked out before my arrival to India. I was really pleased to see the commitment and quality delivered to the foreign patients by them. The doctors, nurses, staff were at par with excellence and were always there for you. I am really amazed to see such a wonderful treatment given by the Indians. During Total Knee arthroplasty surgery the knee joint is usually approached anteriorly through a medial parapatellar approach, although some surgeons use a lateral or subvastus approach. Osteophytes and intra-articular soft tissues are then cleared. Bone cuts in the distal femur are made perpendicular to the mechanical axis, usually using an intramedullary alignment system, which is then checked against the center of the hip. The proximal tibia is cut perpendicular to the mechanical axis of the tibia using either intramedullary or extramedullary alignment rods. Restoration of mechanical alignment is important to allow optimum load sharing and prevent eccentric loading through the prosthesis. Sufficient bone is removed so that the prosthesis re-creates the level of the joint line. This allows the ligaments around the knee to be balanced accurately and prevents alteration in patella height, which can have a deleterious effect on patellofemoral mechanics. Because of preoperative deformity, some ligaments around the knee are contracted. These are carefully released in a step-wise fashion to balance the soft tissues around the knee and allow optimum knee kinematics. Thus my entire Total Knee arthroplasty surgery in India went perfect.
After my Total Knee arthroplasty surgery in India I was kept under observation for a 24-hour period in a high-dependency ward. Adequate hydration and analgesia were essential at that time of high physical stress. Analgesia was provided through continuation of the intraoperative epidural, patient-controlled intravenous analgesia. At this early stage, I started knee movement sometimes using a continuous passive motion (CPM) machine and exercises. These are continued under the supervision of a physiotherapist until my discharge. I was discharged within two days and soon was back to Nigeria with list of instructions from my surgeon and medicine to take. As I am back to my normal life, I thank you all the medical team and the executives of Indian Healthguru Group, who put their best for my Total Knee arthroplasty surgery in India. Apart from the treatment an exotic holiday too was clubbed with Total Knee arthroplasty surgery, wherein I really had good time. Certainly such surgeries and treatments are inexpensive as compared to the western countries. In India, we have clinics with state to the art equipments and well trained experienced doctors to match the best of international standards.
