Osteoarthritic degeneration and subsequent knee pain among elderly is a common health problem., “Beyond a certain age, medicines, physiotherapy and other arthroscopic interventions are not useful in the treatment of arthritis and such patients require total knee replacement as a definitive treatment” says Dr.Balaraju Naidu, Computer Navigation Joint replacement surgeon,at Citizen Speciality Hospital,Hyderabad.

Studies have proved computer-assisted knee replacement surgeries are more precise, less risky, resulting in improved quality of life and offers the patient a huge advantage of immediate recovery.”
For Rajeswarmma , 68 years, being able to stand, walk and sleep, is nothing short of a ‘miracle’. Diagnosed with severe osteoarthritis in both knees, she could barely walk 100 metres at a stretch, until she underwent computer-assisted simultaneous bilateral total knee replacement surgery by Dr.Balaraju Naidu , 15 days ago.

“At Rajeswarammas’s  age, surgeries are usually risky and after considerable planning and preparation, the  simultaneous bilateral total knee replacement surgery was done with the aid of a computer navigation system used intra-operatively ” he says.
She has been able to start walking almost in three hours of  time after surgery, able to climb stairs the next following day and was discharged on day three” informed Purusthotham Reddy ,Rajeswaramma’s son and a software engineer based in Banglore.
“Because it was a computerised surgery, she was able to recover quickly and resume her routine. ”.“Computer-assisted surgeries are not only more accurate but also safer. Additional benefits include shorter hospital stays, less blood loss and a reduced risk of post-surgery complications,” says Dr.Balaraju Naidu. The patients treated with this technology can get full movement, including sitting cross legged and squatting.

“In a computerised surgery, surgeons can cut the bone at accurate angles and balance the soft tissue around the knee . This helps in achieving better knee alignment too,” . “It also quantifies the tension around the ligament to help the surgeon decide how much pressure he should apply during surgery.”

This kind of advancement is also encouraging patients to overcome their fear and go under the knife to improve their quality of life.

“The shelf life of an implant in a knee replacement procedure depends on how well the implant is aligned with the bone. The computer navigation technique helps immensely in increasing the longevity of implant and reduces revision rates.
