Bone related diseases are on the rise in India like never before. And not only does it results in pain and suffering, but also significantly deteriorates the quality of life of patients suffering from it. One of the most common among these diseases is Osteoporosis. Many people beyond the age of 40-50 suffer from it and the most affected area is the Knee.
So, what’s the solution? While medications and exercises are a part of the treatment, a knee replacement surgery is recommended by the Doctor when:
- The pain exceeds the pain-bearing capacity of the patient.
- When there is continuous pain day and night.
- Knee-inflammation that doesn’t go away with medicines or other treatment modes.
- Walking gets difficult on your own.
Most knee-replacement surgeries are done between the ages of 50-80.
