Total Knee & Hip Replacements are very well accepted procedures now in India. Tremendous success rate and excellent outcome have made these procedures popular and very safe. Other than that total elbow replacement is also a procedure which very few people are aware of though quite common in a damaged elbow in USA & Europe, but not practiced in India because of lack of trained professional
Elbow is considered to be one of the very much important and integral parts of the body which performs vital role in almost all the works for a human body. Without a healthy elbow joint, many an important functions of the arm will not be possible like lifting things which needs many complexed movements at elbow joint. Sometimes, due to some internal problems of bones or due to severe fracture of these elbows, they are needed to be changed with the artificial one
Dr. Sujoy Bhattacharjee, Joint Replacement Surgeon at Metro Hospital, Faridabad, has taken special training from Germany for this procedure and recently performed Total Elbow Replacement on 23 rd April 2015.

Now seeing the gratifying results of this elbow replacement surgery, it is a great hope for such patients who are turned away by many orthopedic surgeons Informed Dr S S Bansal, Managing Director & senior interventional Cardiology, Metro Hospital, Faridabad. He added that I am very happy and satisfied with kind of surgery Dr Sujoy and his team has performed first time in Faridabad and he said that I am very confident, that more number of patients will be benefitted by this technique.
Total knee replacement surgery has been a boon in alleviating pain and disability in patients suffering from Arthritis. Knee replacement implants so far have been designed according to the anthropologic measurements of the Western people and that's why these implants sometimes tend to mismatch when used in Indian patients. Knee size and body size differ in Asians compared to Western counterparts. As a result, an Asian's knee might not fit these prostheses.
According to Dr. Sujoy Bhattacharjee, Joint Replacement Surgeon of Metro Hospital, Faridabad, Asians particularly Indians require a higher range of flexion for most of their daily habits and customs. Asians are much smaller and different in size than their western counterparts. They also have poor bone mass and poor bone quality, due to delayed referrals and osteoporosis. Hence in these patients excessive bone cutting is associated with more post procedural complications.
Thanks to advancement in technology that we now have implants that are designed keeping in mind the Asian bone size and shapes. Earlier, we only had implants designed keeping in mind the Asian bone sizes and shapes. Earlier, we only had implants designed as per Caucasian standards (European and American). Indian women tend to have smaller bones compared to their western counterparts and Indian lifestyle also requires more flexible knee movement. Today a plethora of Total knee Replacement Systems are available in the market giving the surgeons and patients a choice. Improper implant fit limits patient's movement, comfort and increase the chance of post-operative complications.
Such newer modifications in implant design and sizing allow Indian population to achieve as near normal knee bending possible to lead normal lifestyle and stair climbing. In many persons, these newer implants will also allow one to bend knee fully and be able to kneel, squat and sit cross-legged, though excessive use of such postures can impair the longevity of the prosthesis. Dr. Sujoy Bhattacharjee, a senior Orthopaedic Surgeon in Metro Hospital, Faridabad who is a well known Joint Replacement Surgeon, who has more than 200 happy patients - who are bending their knees leading pain free life after undergoing freedom knee replacement surgery which suits perfectly in all Asian patients. The "Freedom" knee prosthesis has been a boon and is more "patient specific" for Indian/Asian population. The bone cuts are conservative and offer benefit to patients.
