Robot- Assisted Joint Replacement Surgery
Robot- Assisted Joint Replacement Surgery | CMRI Hospital, Kolkata
Knee replacement is one of the most common orthopaedic procedures that involves the replacement of deteriorating knee joints with new prosthetic components. Depending upon the area of the knee joint that is affected, doctors may either recommend partial replacement or total replacement. The former is recommended when only a part of the knee joint is affected and aims at removing only the damaged section while leaving the remaining joint intact. The latter, on the other hand, is recommended when the complete knee joint is affected and needs to be replaced. Offered at the best multispeciality hospital in Kolkata, the procedure has helped hundreds and thousands of people lead pain-free life.
What everyone needs after a long tiring day is a good night’s sleep, and not being able to enjoy the same can be quite frustrating. While some people may fall asleep soon after lying down in their bed, others may spend their nights twisting and turning, waiting like an owl. The condition is commonly referred to as insomnia, and is defined as the inability to fall asleep, or maintain a peaceful sleep at night. The problem may be acute or chronic depending upon how long it lasts. As per the best doctor for sleep disorders, acute insomnia is usually a result of stress or some external factor, whereas chronic insomnia may be related to some serious underlying health issue.
A knee replacement surgery or medically known as total knee arthroplasty is a surgical procedure that involves relieving pain and restoring the normal functionality in a severely ailing knee joint.
