Custom fit Knee Replacement in Gurgaon.

We are one of the first centers in Gurgaon to offer knee replacement using Patient Specific instrumentation (PSI) or Custom made instruments. We has associated with Smith and Nephew, Memphis, USA to provide their custom fit technology to the patients in India. For more information, you could visit http://www.smith-nephew.com/patient/treatments/knee-treatments/visionaire-patient-matched-technology/


PSI uses advanced imaging to generate one-time-use instruments specific to each patient. An MRI/CT scan is taken of the patient’s leg. A three dimensional bone model of the patient's knee is created based on the CT/MRI images. Dr Arora will then plan your surgery on this 3D image regarding overall alignment, femoral and tibial bone cuts and size of the implant needed. The detailed plan is then sent to the implant manufacturing unit based in USA and an engineer uses the data to fabricates a corresponding set of disposable cutting blocks or pin guides designed to help the surgeon position and align the implant during surgery. These jigs are then shipped to us for use during surgery.


These patient-specific surgical instruments are custom made for the precise alignment of patient’s knee. There are several distinct advantages of this technology.


  • It removes multiple steps from the traditional surgical technique and shortens surgical time.


  • This may lead to less blood loss and a lower risk of infection.


  • This technique leads to precise implant fitting and better functional results.


  • Small incision and quick recovery

Frequently asked questions regarding Custom Fit Knee Replacement Surgery.

Q1. What is Custom Fit Knee replacement surgery?

Ans: Custom Fit Knee replacement uses CT or MRI scan of the patient's knee to generate  a three dimensional bone model. Surgery is planned on these models using computer and instruments matching patient's bone size and shape are created which are used during surgery.

Q2. Why Custom Fit Knee replacement is better than conventional surgery?

Ans: Knee replacement surgery done using conventional techniques is anyway a very successful and safe procedure with success rate of over 90%. By using computer generated 3-D models and patient specific instruments, we can eliminate any human errors and improve the success rate to above 97%.
This technique is especially useful in patient with deformed legs and previous injury to the leg.
This technique is routinely used many Western countries in every patient and is expected to become the standard technique of performing a knee replacement surgery in the future due to increased accuracy and reduced complications.

Q3. How is Custom fit surgery different from a conventional surgery?
Ans:
  • It removes multiple steps from the traditional surgical technique and shortens surgical time.
  • This may lead to less blood loss and a lower risk of infection.
  • This technique leads to precise implant fitting and better functional results.
  • Small incision and quick recovery.

Q4. What are other advantages of this technique?
Ans: This technique improves accuracy and reduces the risk of human errors during the surgery. This leads to  better outcome of the procedure, quick recovery and a smaller incision to perform the surgery.

Q4 What is the process involved in Custom Fit Knee Replacement?
Ans
You will be assessed in the Knee Clinic by Dr Arora and CT/MRI scan of the knee will be arranged. The instruments are manufactured by US companies and the process takes 2-4 weeks. Once your customized implants are received in the hospital, the surgery can be scheduled. 

Q5: Can you perform the custom fit Knee surgery at Columbia Asia Hospital.
Ans We are one of the first centers in Gurgaon to offer knee replacement using Patient Specific instrumentation (PSI) or Custom made instruments. We have successfully performed total knee replacement in more than 50 patients over last 2 years using this technique. Dr Arora has received advanced training in Belgium to perform the custom fit knee replacement surgery.

Q6: Can CFTKR be done in both knees at the same time?
Ans: Custom fit knee replacement is an ideal technique if you need knee replacement surgery on both sides, as this technique reduces blood loss and shortens the surgery time as compared to conventional technique. Majority of our patient, who underwent custom fit knee replacement received it  on both sides in one sitting.
