My Wife Hemambika Ramachandran in her Sixtees was Suffering from Arthritis for more than 8 years and we were looking to get her operated for more than 3 yrs.
Over the last few years we met Many Eminent Top Surgeons and visited most of the Leading Joint Replacement Centres across India and during our interactions with them we understood that not All Knee Replacement Surgery are the same. We came to an understanding that the Results were Dependant on the Skills,Experience and Expertise of these Operating Surgeons due to the various Surgical Techniques available for the Surgery and utilized by these Surgeons as per their Expertise. We also realised that along with Techniques what also mattered in the Final outcome was the Choice of Implants made for a particular patient as the fit of the Implant may vary as per the size of the Joints and the structure and age of the patient.
By now we had read and come to know about Subvastus Muscle Sparing Approach and it’s benefit in Early recovery of the patients after knee replacement and were looking for a Surgeon who uses this technique.
We were by now fully aware about the Need of Knee Replacement and the Various Types of Techniques and Implants available after our multiple consultations but were completely confused which would be the best implant in her case.
One day we were forwarded a newspaper cutting of an Article about Dr Santosh Shetty Joint Replacement Surgeon from Mumbai in Times of India regarding a Gold Knee Replacement which he had done for one of his patients.
We decided to take an opinion of Dr Santosh Shetty and discuss our concerns.
Dr Santosh Shetty answered all our queries and took away all the doubts we had.
Our main Concern areas were
1)Longevity of The Implant as we had heard about Revision Surgery in later stages of life
2)Early Recovery through Surgical Techniques and Need of Long Term Physiotherapy
3)Achieveing Full Range of Movements
4)Risk of Infection and Metal Allergy
Dr Santosh Shetty Explained us in Details about the Techniques and the Choice of Implants available which will help us Achieve what we were looking for.
In the very first meeting we made up our mind to go ahead with the surgery due to the clarity that we got from Dr Santosh Shetty.
Dr Santosh Shetty One of the Topmost Joint Replacement Surgeon from Mumbai Trained in Germany, Belgium and USA and Mastered Many Techniques over the period of years said that he Performed A Bilateral Total Knee Replacement Surgery using a Minimal Invasive Technique with special MIS instruments through a very small incision leading to a sutureless surgery and utilized Quads Muscle Sparing Subvastus Approach which helped the patient regain her muscles strength immediately in no time after surgery leading to her early mobilization and walking Immediately after the Surgery.
Dr Santosh Shetty Explained us the Benifits of the Specially Coated Gold Knee Implant in the form of Reduced Incidence of Metal Allergy / Infection and Reduced Wear and Tear leading to Long Term Longevity and survivorship which would be ideal in her case keeping her age in mind.
He also told us that the Knee is designed to fit better and best in Asian population and as such would have the highest and closest probabilities of giving her a perfect fit due to the various sizes available in these implants.
His Holistic Approach towards the Need of the patient helped my Wife recover at the earliest and start walking without walker or stick the very next day after Bilateral Knee Replacement Surgery and climbing staircase on the very same evening.
My Family have no words to Express our Gratitude towards Dr Santosh Shetty who has taken away the Pain and Added Miles To Her Life and Smiles to All Our Faces.
Tough this has been a Magical Experience and is nothing short of a Magic for me and my family to see My wife walk without a walker or a stick after surgery of both her Knees immediately after the surgery, we are fully aware and know that these results and outcomes are results of extensive planning and proper Execution of these planning due to the Dedication and Vast Experience that Dr Santosh Shetty and His Team have acquired through their extensive training all across the Globe in the field of Joint Replacement Surgery.
