The main reason for a Bilateral Total Knee Replacement is severe arthritis that causes pain and stiffness in both knees affecting the patients ability to carry on with basic day- to- day activities and significantly reduces one’s quality of life. The pain makes even the simplest of tasks like ‘bending to pick something from the floor’ difficult for the person. Their conditioned is worsened if they have to pick heavy weighed things. Arthritis in knees is a progressive condition and usually worsens with time. A person choses to go for simultaneous procedure when they have significant deformity of both knees. Having them corrected simultaneously helps the patient recover faster and allows them to walk straight again soon.
The standard method of hip replacement involves replacing the acetabulum (the hip socket) and placing a femoral component inside the femur (thigh bone). Hip resurfacing is the procedure where a small bone of the femoral head is removed and then replaced with a plastic or a metallic component. The surgery is mainly performed on people who are not more than 55 years of age and have arthritis problem like Osteoarthritis. The key cause of this kind of arthritis can be childhood disorders like dislocated hip, Perthe’s disease or slipped epiphysis, connective tissue disorders or Inflammation.
Hip resurfacing Surgery as a treatment is less tender and saves more bone than in the case of Total Hip replacement. The progressive Hip Surgery results in improved stability, flexibility and ease of movements. The results of this surgery are more progressive as the patient can sit with ease on the floors and can take part in any kind of outdoor sports.
In most of the medical cases related to knee damage, the surgeon usually suggests a minimally invasive total knee surgery. The only difference is that the surgery is done by making a small incision and within a smaller surgical area than in the traditional knee replacement surgery. The surgery requires only a small incision of 3 to 6 inches as against the 8 to 122 inch cut in the traditional method. In the minimally invasive surgery, a surgeon just pushes the kneecap aside whereas in the traditional surgery, knee is turned over 180 degrees so that surgery could be performed easily. The only risk involved during the minimally invasive knee replacement surgery is that the surgeon has limited access to the knee joint and that may increase the complications during the surgery.
Total hip replacement is a treatment option for the last stage degenerative hip disease or degenerative arthritis. The best part about the surgery is that apart from treating the pain in the hips, it helps in the improvement of sleep patterns, range of motion and the physical ability of the person. A lot of times, due to the degeneration of the cartilage surface, a person has to go through a lot of pain, stiffness, loss of hip joint movement and a lot of disability. The total hip replacement surgery involves replacement of both the ball and the socket.
The after effects of the total Hip Replacement Surgery are such that the patient might suffer from blood loss, nerve injury, fracture and dislocation. MediMantra supports the patients till he/she is able to lead the normal life.

Also known as Partial knee Replacement surgery is a surgical process to treat arthritis that has affected only the single part of the knee. Partial knee replacement is an invasive surgery that eliminates only the damaged areas of the joint. During the knee replacement surgery, the damaged bones and cartilage is resurfaced with metal and plastic components. In the case of unicompartmental knee replacement, only a portion of the joint is treated.
Since the process involves treating only a small portion of the knee, it promises quicker recovery, less pain after the surgery and even less blood loss. During the surgery, the healthy bone, cartilage and the ligaments are not removed which helps the patients knee feels more natural after the unicompartmental knee replacement as compared to the complete knee replacement.
