“Pain relief, better use of the joints and increased flexibility.”
What is Joint Replacement?
Designed for patients of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or injuries who do not respond well to medications & exercises, a Joint Replacement involves replacing the knee or hip joint with a synthetic implant made of hi-density polyethylene, ceramic, titanium or cobalt/chromium.
The RK Joint (Hip & Knee) Replacement Centre, Bangalore has had hundreds of successful joint replacement surgeries, thanks to a unique combination of surgical expertise and indigenously developed physiotherapy protocols.
