Knee-Replacement
Non-Invasive Cardiology Services in Mumbai

Apollo Hospitals Navi Mumbai, offers advanced treatment for conditions of the knee joint such as arthritis that can severely affect the knee and hamper routine activities.

What is arthritis?

Arthritis is inflammation of the joints. A gradual wearing away of the tissue on the ends of bones results in reduction of joint space and friction at the exposed bone surfaces, changing regular bone movement and causing severe pain. Knee Replacement Surgery is the best solution to treat the condition and allow resumption of normal activities in the knee.

The types of arthritis are:

Osteoarthritis

This occurs after the age of 50 in individuals with a family history of arthritis. The tissue that cushions the bones of the knee softens and wears away. The bones then rub against one another, causing knee pain and stiffness.

Rheumatoid arthritis

This is a disease in which the inner membrane of joints is thickened and inflamed. This results in excessive production of the fluid that lubricates these joints. This chronic inflammation can damage the tissue covering the ends of the bones and eventually result in loss of the tissue, pain and stiffness.

Traumatic arthritis

It can result from a serious knee injury. A knee fracture or severe tears of the knee's connective tissue may damage the tissue covering the ends of the bones over time, causing knee pain and limiting knee function.
