A key element in a hip or knee replacement surgery is the artificial joint that is used. The choice of joint and its precise placement will go a long way in determining your mobility and the longevity of the joint.
Young people will require joints which are made of material which will last long. Usually old people may not require such a joint. But these days all want to lead active lives. People in the 60+ age group want to exercise, travel, take courses…enjoy their retirement. To live life to the fullest we need to be mobile. This desire has led to a tremendous increase worldwide in Knee and Hip Replacement Surgeries.
In view of this, it is the Surgeon who should decide on the type of joint that has to be used for replacement and not the manufacturer.

The key to a successful joint replacement surgery (hip and knee) is matching the perfect implant to replace the joint. MIOT Hospital does this right. The right implant fits smoothly and leaves the patient comfortable and active for life. The wrong implant leads to discomfort, wear and tear and possibly, another surgery in a few years.
The longevity of the implant depends not only on the type of material but also on the angle it is placed in your body. Once the right implant is chosen, MIOT surgeons then place this implant with zero- error precision supported by computer navigation and several man years’ of experience. Having specialized in this field and perfecting their technique with constant updates, the efficiency and skill of MIOT Hospitals surgeons ensures optimum operating time and sensitive tissue handling.
