Knee Replacement Surgery in Bedford





Knee replacement surgery is the definitive solution and the only potential cure for severe knee arthritis.

Although it is a major surgery, it has a success rate of over 80%. The procedure involves an incision on the front of the knee (or medial side for a partial knee replacement), replacing the worn part of the joint with metal components fixed with cement or press fitted to the bone, and inserting a new prosthetic joint bearing made of hard plastic between the metal parts to enable sliding and a good range of motion.

Postoperative care includes a hospital stay of 2 to 4 days, depending on pain management and the patient's confidence in mobilising. If suitable for a partial knee replacement (e.g., arthritis limited to only the medial compartment of the knee joint), the patient may be able to go home within 1 or 2 days after surgery, as this procedure is less invasive than a total knee replacement and typically has a faster recovery. After discharge, patients have follow-up appointments at the clinic at 6 weeks and 6 months post-operation (more frequently if necessary). Here, you can find more detailed information about the procedure, including a generic video:

He was very informative and supporting...

Mr Arvinte was very professional and thorough through the consultations prior to me having a full knee replacement operation. He was informative with regard to the concerns on having this operation whilst being very supportive. He was very supportive on the day of the operation with follow up checks during my stay in hospital. His post op consultations have been thorough along with his advice for my complete recovery.
