Dr. Vivek Mittal has performed a large number of surgeries.
Total Knee Replacement surgery has been designed for people whose knees have been severely damaged by diseases (like Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, post traumatic arthritis, etc.) regardless of the cause of damage.
During the surgery, the damaged joint is replaced by an artificial joint, which is cemented into the place, making knee as good as new. About 90 – 95% patients with painful & stiff knees have very good outcome after surgery and are helped to walk within 48 – 72 hrs. with support.
Total Knee Replacement brings freedom of movement by getting relief from perpetual pain & stiffness, correction of deformity and obviating the need of support like walker or wheel chair for ambulation, and allows patients to resume their daily activities, which were often put on hold because of severe arthritis.
Total Knee Replacement not only improves your quality of life but also gives you independence by allowing you to return to your routine activities, attending social functions, enjoying holidays, etc.
