The First Knee Resurfacing surgery in Asia was performed here at the Nanavati Hospital centre by Dr Sankalp Mutha. Dr Mutha said 'the recent Surgery can be termed as major innovation in treatment of Knee Arthritis in India. Nanavati Hospital has also adopted the State-of-the Art Resurfacing Procedure to provide Minimally Invasive Knee Solution to joint pain to patiens.' Dr Mutha successfully conducted the first path breaking Knee Resurfacing Surgery using the FDA approved OrthoGlide Knee Implant, patented and designed by ABS Corporation of the USA, licensed in India to Smart Ortho Devices Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi. It took just under an hour with almost no blood loss, no bone cuts and no cement used, leaving all the joint bones absolutely natural and virtually untouched. Post Operation, the patient recovered well and was walking within four hours of surgery which is unheard of with current surgical modalities offered to patients of knee arthritis. Pain relief and Improved Movement of the knee joint was reported within hours of the procedure and the Patient was discharged the next day of the Procedure. Osteoarthritis, which is the cause of the pain, erodes the cartilage that acts as a cushion between bones in knee joints, causing inflammation and pain in joints. Ortho Glide is designed to replace much of the function of the cartilage that has been lost due to the disease. Osteoarthritis has alarmingly become the 2nd largest disease after Diabetes affecting the Indian Population as per recent studies. After conservative oral treatments failure, this surgery offers a cost effective treatment for early and moderate arthritis of the knee joint which is virtually half of the cost of Total Knee Replacements which is considered to be the last option for the disease in advance stages with badly degenerated joints. The Major advantages of this surgery over standard Total Knee Replacement includes its early rehabilitation which helps patients to return very fast to normal daily function and life style. It allows patient to squat and seat cross legged, an important part of our daily lives in our Indian Culture, he added. UNI ST SN SKB2003 NNNN
