Why Choose Us

Our Joint Replacement Surgeons routinely performs Minimal Invasive Surgery.
Benefits that patients experiences are - less blood loss, less incision therefore patient experiences less pain, faster recovery
  • Unlike other surgeons, our surgeons do bilateral knee replacement in a single sitting which saves on anesthesia time as well as multiple procedures. It is the replacement procedure done for both the diseased knees at the same time during a single sitting surgery. Interestingly it is also a fact that for almost 90% of us suffering from arthritis problems, it is very common that both the knees are affected and the surgery can be done at the same time to have implants in both the knees at once. First of all, there are no additional risks to operate both the knees at the same time, most people recover very well, the entire procedure takes about a week's time, from one day prior to the surgery to about 5 days of post-operative recovery time. After about couple days, the patient is able to walk and will be able to go back to all of his regular lifestyle activities within about 3 months time. The trauma of surgery is also so much less and the individuals do not have to go through the pain twice by adopting to this bilateral replacement.
