Top 10 Knee Surgeons in India



Joint pain is a universal condition that affects most people after a certain age. Some people might experience it at higher intensity because of underlying medical conditions or arthritis. Injuries and congenital deformities are some other reasons why a patient might be recommended to undergo knee replacement surgery.

According to studies, 98% of patients who undergo knee replacement surgery from a reputed center are able to get rid of their joint pain and achieve better control of their motion.

30 – 40% of patients who undergo joint replacement surgery in Africa, end up requiring revision surgery. There are limited orthopedic surgeons and medical centers in the country, some of which are still using traditional methods for performing the operation that can increase the risk of infection as they require bigger incisions that take longer to recover.

However, Indian knee replacement surgeons specialize in performing all types of joint replacement surgeries, using minimally invasive techniques that help patients recover faster.
