Joints Replacement

We believe that you should never let your spirit be broken, as for the joints, we shall take care of those. When conservative treatment is not able to heal your joints completely we recommend arthroplasty.

We recommend the such procedures to older patients who suffer from a lot of pain and loss of function arising out of arthritis and have failed results from other conservative methods of therapy. The procedures we offer are based on the region of your body part.

Total Knee Replacement (TKR)

Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement is a surgical procedure that involves removing a damaged knee joint, cleaning up cartilage and tissue, and then replacing it with an artificial joint. This surgical procedure reinforces the knee joint, restores movement and reduces knee pain.

Though this knee joint replacement is most commonly performed on adults older than 60-years-old, younger adults may develop a serious knee condition that requires this surgical procedure to restore normal function. Orthopaedic specialists at Polaris Healthcare are highly recognised in successful, total knee replacement surgery and can recommend this or alternative treatments, to patients with severe knee conditions.

Total Hip Replacement (THR)

Total Hip Replacement

Polaris Healthcare’s highly talented orthopaedic surgeons adopt a minimally invasive approach to hip replacement surgery, employing specialised training to perform the procedure through just a few small incisions.

Our patients typically benefit from a quicker return to their daily lives. And because these techniques minimise surgical impact on the tissues surrounding the replaced hip joint, they also experience less post-surgical pain and scarring. Book an appointment with a specialist today.
