Total Knee Replacement
  joint replacement

A joint replacement is needed when "an arthritic or damaged joint is removed and replaced with an artificial joint, called a prosthesis". Arthroplasty or joint replacement surgery, is a procedure of Orthopaedic surgery, in which the arthritic or dysfunctional joint surface is replaced with an Orthopaedic prosthesis. When joint replacement surgery occurs, the artificial surfaces of the joint replacement are shaped in such a way as to allow joint movement similar to that of a healthy and natural joint. A person who has injured or damaged their joint may experience extremely severe pain at the site of the joint. In certain instances when the pain is extremely severe, one may "avoid using the joint, weakening the muscles around the joint and making it even more difficult to move the joint". In such a severe case, one may consider a Joint Replacement as a possible solution.

Successfully performing joint replacement services sinces 2005, Chanddni Hospital continues to provide ultimate Orthopaedic care to the patients. Dr.S.N.Soni is specialized in Joint Replacement and has received training for these surgeries in India and abroad. We currently provide Three Kinds of Joint Replacements

Total Hip Replacement:  

A total hip replacement is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased cartilage and bone of the hip joint is surgically replaced with artificial materials. The normal hip joint is a ball and socket joint. The socket is a "cup-shaped" bone of the pelvis called the acetabulum. The ball is the head of the thigh bone (femur). Total hip joint replacement involves surgical removal of the diseased ball and socket and replacing them with a metal ball and stem inserted into the femur bone and an artificial plastic cup socket. The metallic artificial ball and stem are referred to as the "prosthesis." Upon inserting the prosthesis into the central core of the femur, it is fixed with a bony cement called methylmethacrylate. Alternatively, a "cementless" prosthesis is used which has microscopic pores that allow bony ingrowth from the normal femur into the prosthesis stem. This "cementless" hip is felt to have a longer duration and is considered especially for younger patients.

All the three types of hip replacement surgeries viz.,Cemented, hybrid and uncemented.
The uncemented hip replacement surgeries of

Metal on poly
Metal on Metal
Ceramic on Poly
Ceramic on Ceramic
Articular Surface replacement

are being performed successfully by Dr.S.N.Soni

Total Knee and Unicondylar Knee Replacement  

Knee replacement, or knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve the pain and disability of osteoarthritis.It may be performed for other knee diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. In patients with severe deformity from advanced rheumatoid arthritis, trauma, or long standing osteoarthritis, the surgery may be more complicated and carry higher risk. Osteoporosis does not typically cause knee pain, deformity, or inflammation and is not a reason to perform knee replacement.
Other major causes of debilitating pain include meniscus tears, cartilage defects, and ligament tears. Debilitating pain from osteoarthritis is much more common in the elderly.
Knee replacement surgery can be performed as a partial or a total knee replacement.[2] In general, the surgery consists of replacing the diseased or damaged joint surfaces of the knee with metal and plastic components shaped to allow continued motion of the knee.
The operation involves substantial postoperative pain, and includes vigorous physical rehabilitation. The recovery period may be 6 weeks or longer and may involve the use of mobility aids (e.g. walking frames, canes, crutches) to enable the patient's return to preoperative mobility

we provide knee replacements with different knids of procedures namely:

Bilateral, - in same sitting
Simultaneous - at the gap of 2 days
One by one separate - at the gap of 6 hrs

between the replacement of both knees.

Shoulder  Replacement  

We also specialize in shoulder replacement surgeries.

Shoulder replacement surgery is an option for treatment of severe arthritis of the shoulder joint. Arthritis is a condition that affects the cartilage of the joints. As the cartilage lining wears away, the protective lining between the bones is lost--when this happens, painful bone-on-bone arthritis develops. Severe shoulder arthritis is quite painful, and can cause restriction of motion. While this may be tolerated with  and lifestyle adjustments, there may come a time when surgical treatment is necessary.

Total shoulder replacement surgery alleviates pain by replacing the damaged bone and cartilage with a metal and plastic implant. The shoulder joint is a ball-and-socket joint, much like the hip joint. The ball is the top of the arm bone (the humerus), and the socket is within the shoulder blade (scapula). This joint allows people an enormous range of motion at the shoulder.When shoulder replacement susome medicationsrgery is performed, the ball is removed from the top of the humerus and replaced with a metal implant. This is shaped like a half-moon and attached to a stem inserted down the center of the arm bone. The socket portion of the joint is shaved clean and replaced with a plastic socket that is cemented into the scapula.
