HIP and KNEE replacements are the most successful surgeries in Orthopedics for patients of hip and knee arthritis.
The surfaces forming the joint are removed and a highly polished metal prosthesis is inserted. The metal glides smoothly on a high-grade plastic insert. The soft tissue imbalance is also corrected and any deformity is also corrected simultaneously.
DRs AMIT and ASHISH Deo are specially trained in this surgery and have been doing these surgeries regularly at Aayush hospital. Great importance is given to evaluating the patient individually and specific joints for each patient are thought of and done. The amount of personal involvement in diagnosis, personal needs of patient, fitness and pre op care and counseling followed by excellent
rehabilitation is most important for the patient to get a successful joint replacement.
