Dr. Bakul Arora is a Consultant knee & hip Replacement Surgeon based in Thane and Mumbai. He is pioneer in Mini Invasive techniques where muscles around the knee & hip are not cut.Dr. Bakul Arora comes across many patients who are afraid of undergoing knee replacement surgery in spite of having significantly knee problem. They restrict their activities in order to avoid pain. This sets in a chain of reactions. They don't move out of the house leading to the dullness of mind and depression. They don't exercise much due to pain which leads to aggravation of blood sugars and blood pressure. The knee joint starts deforming and becomes stiff leading to increasing in pain. Hence it's important to undergo surgery at the right time when your physical and mental health is sound. Total knee replacement offers a magical solution of all knee-related problems. However many patients fear the surgery related pain and doubt if their recovery would match the expectations as promised. No surgery can be painless. But our efforts are oriented to achieve an almost painless technique and faster recovery. That is to start walking on the same day of surgery, without pain.How do we achieve this? We focus on providing the best environment for your new knee.Imagine yourself locked in a room. What would you prefer? A room with angry red colored walls or a room with soothing blue colored walls? The muscles are the walls around the knee joint. During conventional surgery the muscles of the knee joint are cut in order to change the knee joint, that means the wall of the room is broken and then repaired. This makes the muscles red angry and swollen. Of course, with time, the inflammation settles down, but the initial period after surgery becomes extremely painful which in turn delays the recovery. Sometimes patient starts walking only after 2 weeks. He operates using a very innovative approach where the muscles around the knee are Not Cut. As the muscles are not cut, there is almost no pain. Your new knee feels comfortable just like at home. This approach doesn't incite the inflammation as much as the conventional technique. Hence the recovery is quick. Most patients begin walking within 3 to 6 hours after surgery, start stairs climbing on the next day and are ready for discharge the day following. His idea is to help patients to confront their fears and eliminate them.
