Answers to the frequently asked questions on Orthopeadic problems, by Dr. Niraj Vora

Question.1 Things not to be done after a complete knee replacement surgery?:

Q uestion .1 Things not to be done after a complete knee replacement surgery ? A nswer Even though your activity level is likely to increase, a knee replacement surgery means that high-demand or high-impact activities must be avoided. You should definitely avoid running or jogging, contact sports, jumping sports, and high impact aerobics. You should also try to avoid vigorous walking or hiking, skiing, tennis, repetitive lifting exceeding 50 pounds, and repetitive aerobic stair climbing. The safest aerobic exercise is biking (stationary or traditional) because it places very little stress on the knee joint. Life After Knee Replacement Surgery

Q uestion .2 Knee or joint problems occur in women after some age, why? A nswer A recent study in The New England Journal of Medicine showed that while women are more likely to suffer from arthritis than men, they are three times less likely to undergo knee replacement to relieve their pain. If you're a woman suffering from chronic knee pain, you may often notice how this pain affects your daily activities such as walking or enjoying family events, and it may even be disrupting your sleep. Yet as a woman, you may often wait to seek treatment due to the uncertainty of the recovery period and how it may impact your life and family. When non-surgical treatments such as exercise or anti-inflammatory medications no longer relieve your pain and your knee dictates what you can and cannot do, it is time to talk to your orthopaedic surgeon about knee replacement surgery.
