Alternative Treatment for Knee Replacement in 2021 | Dr Mir Jawad Zar Khan , Germanten Hospital Hyderabad

Alternative for knee replacement

Edited Version | 27 Feb 2021 | Hyderabad

Unfortunately, the frequency of total knee replacements remains on the rise and the numbers are staggering. As the general population continues to age, average weight increases and unhealthy lifestyles take a toll on our bodies, especially our joints, more specifically, our knees.

Sometimes, a patient who visits a doctor with severe knee pain looking for relief will be told that a total knee replacement is inevitable.

Fortunately, for patients who are unready to face the prospect of major surgery, there are a handful of knee replacement alternatives that have been used to successfully treat conditions such as:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Meniscus tears
  • ACL tears
  • Tendinitis
  • Other knee joint conditions

Knee replacement alternatives are increasingly viewed as viable options

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy :

Another total knee replacement alternative is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy. Through this process, the patient’s own blood is drawn and centrifuged to separate the red blood cells and plasma, leaving behind a rich concentration of platelets, white blood cells, and tiny stem cells. This concentrate is then injected into the damaged knee, which can facilitate an accelerated healing response.

Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy:-

Stem cell knee therapy is becoming a popular alternative to knee replacement surgery. Through a method known as autologous transplantation, the cells are extracted from the patient’s bone marrow or fatty tissue, processed, and immediately injected into the damaged knee.

The procedure, performed within a single day, could provide the same results in a less traumatic way, without the risks of complications such as infection and blood clots. Many patients experience improvement within as little as one week.

Dr Mir Jawad Zar Khan , say that even most patients are able to return to normal activity following the procedure, which allows avoiding the painful and lengthy rehabilitation periods that are typically required after joint surgeries
