Here’s a quiz: What part of your body starts to give way as soon as you reach the fifty mark (some­times even ear­lier)? Easy enough to guess this one — the joints.

They be­gin to make hor­rid noises, start to ache and cause dis­com­fort, pain and in­con­ve­nience. Knee car­ti­lage de­gen­er­a­tion comes as a part of the ag­ing process but the rate and de­gree of de­te­ri­o­ra­tion is in­flu­enced by our life­style choices.

And if your joints have be­gun to creak and com­plain, here’s good news for you. In­dian Spinal In­juries Cen­tre (ISIC) is of­fer­ing a com­plete spec­trum of treat­ment for knee de­gen­er­a­tion. The next op­tion is to do par­tial joint re­place­ment us­ing com­puter nav­i­ga­tion in which only the worn out part of joint is re­placed. This con­serves the healthy joints and all the lig­a­ments, which en­sures that a pa­tient can do all the nor­mal daily ac­tiv­i­ties with­out any phys­i­cal re­stric­tion. It is the most re­cent form of joint re­place­ment.

If the whole joint is worn out, ISIC of­fers new, ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy, Knee Re­place­ments us­ing Com­puter Nav­i­ga­tion, which is a good sur­gi­cal op­tion to re­lieve pain and im­prove func­tion in pa­tients with knee os­teoarthri­tis. It helps achieve a well-aligned pros­the­sis with well-bal­anced lig­a­ments in order to min­imise wear and im­prove im­plant sur­vival. This tech­nol­ogy, which is in­creas­ingly be­ing used in the world over is now avail­able at In­dian Spinal In­juries Cen­ter (ISIC), a hospi­tal that has top of the line in­fra­struc­ture with mod­u­lar OTs and all lat­est equip­ments. Par­tial or total knee re­place­ment us­ing com­puter nav­i­ga­tion tech­nol­ogy is the most re­cent devel­op­ment in the field of min­i­mally in­va­sive kneere­place­ment.

Now you don’t have to wait for the pain to progress, at ISIC they can help get your knees back on track. DIS­CLAIMER: The ve­rac­ity of any health claim made in the above ar­ti­cle is the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the con­cerned hospi­tal/doc­tor .
