MIS for Joint Replacement
This involves the use of smaller incisions than the ones which are done in traditional joint replacement. In MIS the incision is only 4-6 inches as compared to 8 to 10 inches in traditional surgeries. In this way there is less damage to the tissues around the joint. The patients that undergo this procedure can expect a short hospital stay and less blood loss. BLK is among those few of hospitals in India to offer Minimally Invasive Joint Replacement Surgery.
The BLK Centre for Orthopaedics, Joint Reconstruction & Spine Surgery has performed large number of Total Knee and Hip Replacement Surgeries with results that are comparable to the best hospitals of the world. The Centre also offers Unicondylar Knee Arthroplasty, which is done for relatively younger patients with knee arthritis. Shoulder and Elbow Arthroplasty as well as Arthroplasty for small joints in hand (especially in case of Rheumatoid Arthritis) are some of the key services offered to the patients with an aim to improve the overall quality of life.
