The aim of Physiotherapy is to help restore movement and normal body function in cases of illness, injury and disability as well as treating specific problems. Your physiotherapist may also suggest ways to improve your general wellbeing – for example, by taking regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight for your height and build.

Therefore we also have Yoga Therapy, Panchakarma, Counselling and Ergonomics.

Knee Replacement

Knee Replacement

Knee replacement surgery involves replacing the surface of some or all of the components of the knee joint with a synthetic implant. A total knee replacement surgery replaces all three compartments of the diseased knee joint. A partial knee replacement involves an implant in just one or two compartments of the knee, retaining any undamaged parts. While there are non-surgical and surgical interventions short of knee replacement which will often provide temporary relief, the long-term resolution to most knee degeneration will be joint replacement.

There are several different implant designs (total implants | partial implants) but each will offer renewed stability and movement. Overall, there are two main benefits to be gained from knee replacement surgery: (1) elimination of pain and (2) improved range of motion. Of all possible surgical interventions, total knee replacement offers the greatest quality of life improvement. The procedure has a high rate of success.

If non surgical treatments are ineffective, total knee replacement surgery can be considered a safe and effective procedure to relieve pain and help you resume normal activities. It also helps to correct deformity. The results of knee replacement are predictable and long lasting. Also because of the developments in anesthesia, pain control and physiotherapy, one can resume back to normal routine activities fairly soon after the surgery.

This department is headed by Dr.Ramesh Ranka who has more than 16 years of experience in this super specialty stream of medicine. The super specialty services provided under Orthopaedics at Ranka Hospital are of International standards.
