Why joint replacement?
A joint replacement is a permanent solution to relieve pain and restore movement in the affected joint. You could need a joint replacement surgery for a number of reasons, such as:
· Bone disease
· Reduced blood supply
· Wearing out of the joint due to age, etc.
Replacement surgery is not about standardised procedures, it is not a case of 'one-size-fits-
Minimally invasive surgery or MIS
A greater understanding of the human anatomy together with the rapid strides in surgical techniques have enabled minimally invasive surgery for joint replacements as well. This allows for a smaller incision, less muscle-cutting and therefore less trauma to the soft tissue. MIOT International's expertise in minimally invasive joint replacement surgery results in shorter hospitalisation, decreased pain intensity and faster rehabilitation of the patient.
Joint for Life
Dr. P.V.A. Mohandas has initiated MIOT International's dedicated Joint for Life programme is manned by highly-trained experts who employ the latest techniques and the largest range of orthopaedic implants. Our Joint for Life programme is a success because our doctors are enabled by sophisticated imaging technology, cutting-edge surgical facilities and infection-free environments that ensure that every patient receives the perfect implant that will allow him not only smooth mobility, but also last a lifetime.
A joint is said to have successfully replaced when the implant has bonded completely with the patient's bone and gives him or her freedom from pain, stability and ease of movement. At MIOT international (http://www.miotinternational.com/
Our experts work systematically in steps involving:
· A detailed and accurate assessment of the bones and joints
· Finding and customising the implant to suits the patient's age, physical activity and lifestyle
· Deciding on the surgical approach which will yield the best results
· Devising the right post-surgical physiotherapy regime
If you are contemplating joint replacement surgery, you need to choose a high-volume hospital with a proven track record of successful implants. For the best outcomes, you need a hospital that has the experience and the expertise as well as the infrastructure to ensure an infection-free environment, quality nursing and competent physiotherapy. You'll find all these only at MIOT International.
