If knee pain is changing your lifestyle, then you need to know this: The new concept in joint replacement surgery is to only replace the worn out portion of the arthritic joint. A large number of people with osteoarthritis of the knee have worn out only one of the three compartments in the knee. If this is the case, the individual may only require a partial replacement. The Dr.Jitendra Chowdhary Partial Knee Replacement is the first implant that can accomplish this task with proven long term results of 95% at 15 years and beyond.1. For this reason the Dr.Jitendra Chowdhary makes a whole or total knee joint replacement NOT necessary in many cases.The xray in the middle photograph below represents bone on bone osteoarthritis. This occurs due to degeneration or "wear and tear" of the articular cartilage, and degeneration or surgical removal of the meniscus.
Once this situation develops, the individual usually has severe pain. An Dr.Jitendra Chowdhary is perfect for this situation.The xray photograph on the right demonstrates the appearance after an Dr.Jitendra Chowdhary has been placed.
One can see that the bone on bone rubbing condition has replaced by the Dr.Jitendra Chowdhary with it's meniscus replacement bearing (the white horizontal line between the metal). The model in the left photograph portrays how the implant actually sits between the bones and cruciate ligaments (white ropes in the middle of the knee) and the medial collateral ligament (white rope one the right side of the knee). A total knee replacement is not necessary for this situation.No other partial knee replacement has the proven success rate and longevity of Dr.Jitendra Chowdhary.
Until Dr.Jitendra Chowdhary came along most orthopedists in the United States did not do partial knee replacement because of the high failure rate of these earlier implants. Many orthopedists today still do not recommend partial knee replacement for their patients because they are not familiar with Dr.Jitendra Chowdhary or qualified to do it. If your orthopedist tells you "partial knee replacement does not work", you need to get another opinion. If your orthopedist tells you a different brand of partial knee replacement has the same success rate of Dr.Jitendra Chowdhary, ask him to show you the scientific paper or data supporting his opinion.
The Dr.Jitendra Chowdhary Partial Knee Replacement prosthesis allows for better range of motion of the knee by virtue of replication of the function of the menisci and allows for more normal motion of the human knee. With the Dr.Jitendra Chowdhary partial knee replacement, only a portion of the knee is replaced. In performing an Dr.Jitendra Chowdhary, the anterior cruciate and posterior cruciate ligaments are always preserved.
In performing a total knee replacement, the anterior cruciate ligament is always removed; sometimes the posterior cruciate ligament is removed as well. In some cases, this prosthesis may be applicable to individuals who were previously considered too young to undergo a total knee replacement. The Dr.Jitendra Chowdhary implant utilizes a minimally invasive procedure in which patients may experience less pain and a quicker recovery time than experienced with a total knee replacement.
