About the Total Knee Replacement B/L

Total knee replacement, also known as Total knee arthroplasty. It is a surgical procedure in which a damaged or diseased knee joint is replaced with an artificial joint or prosthesis. This procedure is typically performed to alleviate pain and improve the function of the knee when conservative treatments have been unsuccessful.

Total knee replacement surgery is generally effective in relieving pain and improving the quality of life for individuals with severe knee joint problems.

A bilateral knee replacement surgery is performed when both knees are damaged or diseased. If only one knee is affected, then the surgeon recommends the patient undergo the replacement of just one knee, a procedure known as unilateral knee replacement surgery.

Following are some of the indications for bilateral knee replacement surgery

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Post-traumatic arthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Knee deformity
  • Vascular necrosis
  • Swelling
  • Inflammation of the cartilage surrounding the knee

How is Total Knee Replacement B/L performed?

Bilateral knee replacement surgery can be approached in two ways: either both knees are addressed in a single surgery or each knee is operated on separately in distinct procedures. Opting for simultaneous surgery is often favored for younger patients with overall good health. In contrast, individual surgeries may be recommended, with a gap of a few hours to days between them.

Administration of Anesthesia: In the course of bilateral knee replacement surgery, patients are administered either general anesthesia for unconsciousness or spinal anesthesia to induce numbness. The knee is then accessed, either through an open incision or a small one in the case of minimally invasive procedures.

Type of Knee Implants: The surgical process involves the removal of the kneecap and the extraction of damaged or diseased knee components. These are substituted with implants crafted from metal, plastic, or ceramic materials, chosen based on the surgeon's assessment. The fixation of implants can be cemented or cementless, and the incision is meticulously closed using stitches. This comprehensive approach aims to restore knee function and alleviate discomfort, promoting a smoother recovery for individuals undergoing bilateral knee replacement surgery.

Typically lasting between 1 to 2 hours, knee replacement surgery involves a series of precise steps by the surgeon. This includes making a strategic incision over the knee, skillfully removing diseased and damaged bone and cartilage while preserving healthy bone, and finally, expertly implanting replacement components into the thighbone, shinbone, and kneecap. This meticulous process aims to restore function and alleviate pain, paving the way for improved mobility and quality of life.

Recovery from Total Knee Replacement B/L

Bilateral knee replacement surgery is a major procedure and therefore, recovery may take time. You are likely to experience pain for the initial few weeks. However, it goes away gradually as you start performing physical exercises recommended by the doctor.

You should keep your wound dry and clean to prevent infection after the surgery. In addition, you should elevate your leg often for reduced pain. Talk to your surgeon if you experience redness, swelling, or inflammation around the knee.
