FTKR a New Alternative to Total Knee Replacement

In an attempt to reduce the post-operative trauma in a knee replacement surgery, a team of doctors headed by Neelam Ramana Reddy, joint replacement surgeon at star hospitals, has performed a fast track knee replacement (FTKR) surgery, a comprehensive and convenient alternative to the conventional procedure.

According to Dr Reddy, FTKR is an evidence-based procedure with maximum outcome for patients suffering from severe degeneration of the knee joint who require total knee replacement. “it is a minimally invasive surgery that requires 8 to 12 inches leading to significant disruption of the muscles and tendons,” he said, further adding, “it is a giant leap forward in total knee replacement.

New Developments in Joint Replacements

New, Exciting Techniques Delay Aging

As people live longer, there will inevitably be an increased need for joint replacements One of the major problems encountered by doctors is the fact that, although they have been able to replace joints for a number of years,they have been unable to replace worn-out or damaged cartilage. In fact, if this problem were solved it would enable surgeons to delay joint replacement for a number of years.

According to the BBC, the University College London has been growing cartilage stem cells. In this technique cells are harvested from the patient, grown in a lab and then transplanted back into the patient after joint replacement or to avoid this surgery for as long as possible. Using the patient’s own cells circumvents the need for patients to take immune-suppressant drugs for the rest of their lives. Cells grown from the patient’s own cells also contained higher levels of collagen, the protein constituent of cartilage.

This subsequently leads to painful movement of the limbs hampering the ability to carry on a normal life. These kinds of degenerative diseases damages joints thus limiting blood flow, and thereby causing problems.
