Total Knee Replacement (TKR) is a widely performed surgery nowadays. Over the years, the surgery has evolved quite significantly in terms of the techniques utilised and the outcome thereof. It has come a long way from the monoblock technique to the more advanced high flex TKR. In today’s digital era, computer is an integral part of TKR surgery, creating milestones of accomplishment with the success rate as high as 99 percent.

Computer was first introduced in Orthopaedics in France, 1980 for Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) surgery. In the late 90s, computer technology was introduced for Joint Replacement Surgery. Many organisations have invented surgical navigation system to assist during the surgery, some major ones being - BrainLabs, Medtronics, Aesculap, Zimmer and Stryker. These are all closed systems with limited popularity as they are error prone and are not considered as userfriendly technology. The evolution of the technology in this field could be summarised as follows:

The first generation - Single way communication, closed system, pins in bones.
The second generation- Two way communication, open system, pins in bones.
The third generation - Pinless- World’s only 3rd generation surgical navigation system for Knee: ASM (Articular Surface Mounted), Stryker, produced in 2010.

BLK Super Speciality Hospital is equipped with third generation pinless ASM (Articulate Surface Mounted) Nav3 Express software technology. Previous versions involved wire and lesser sensitive trackers whereby, the surgeon had to drill a pin in the thigh and leg bone to fix the tracker, leaving accuracy in doubt and increasing risk of fracture of shaft because of the pin. If the pin is loose by any chance, not holding in osteoporotic bone, all the efforts would be wasted.

BLK Super Speciality Hospital and Republican Research Centre of Emergency Medicine (RRCEM) signed a Memorandum of Understanding which will enable cultural, educational, scientific and medical cooperation between both the hospitals. Visiting faculty from BLK provided orientation to the doctors of RRCEM on how to handle crisis and emergency situations. The visiting consultants from BLK also conducted OPDs, special lectures and knowledge sharing programs for the patients and medical staff in Uzbekistan.

RRCEM is the biggest emergency medical service provider in Uzbekistan and an Association of Emergency Physicians in the country.

“The initiative taken by BLK has been of great value to our team of doctors in terms of capacity building and knowledge enhancement. The orientation and lectures delivered by the specialists from BLK have proven to be quite insightful for us. OPD conducted by the hospital hugely benefitted our citizens.
