Doctor Speak | Dr. Debashish Chanda | Knee Replacement Surgery FAQs

Surgery is not the only solution to treat knee pain. Only about 20% of patients need knee replacement surgery, whereas 80% of patients don’t. It is essential to maintain weight, engage in an active lifestyle and increase physical activity or light exercises to keep joints active and healthy. Increasing the amount of calcium, vitamin D and other essential nutrients in your diet also help in maintaining bone health. Surgery may be required only in case of chronic conditions such as constant problem in walking, unbearable pain, having to take pain relief medicines daily and difficulty in doing day-to-day activities.

One should also know that knee replacement surgery is not a complete replacement surgery but a resurfacing procedure to reconstruct joints. During the procedure, the worn-out parts are replaced by medicated metal or plastic parts to make the joints active again.
