When knee gets warned out to the extent that it interferes with patients daily routine activities and he/she would not be able to walk even 10-15 minutes without pain, this condition would generally warrant knee replacement. However of course it is only definitely decided after consulting a knee surgeon and after necessary investigation and discussions.
By protocol all patients are consulted by our chief knee surgeon and director of clinic Dr. KC Mehta himself. However you will be meeting a Medical Officer or the surgeon first who would examine you, advise necessary investigations and do your preliminary assessments. Once that is done Dr KC Mehta sees you. During consultation it will be decided whether you required total or partial knee replacement. Dr. Mehta explains all of the details for your satisfaction.
