The KIMS Joint Replacement Center provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment for patients with permanent and progressive damage to knees, hips, or shoulders as a result of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, trauma, or other joint disorders. KIMS is famous for the best knee replacement surgeons in Srikakulam.
The initial assessment involves a review of medical records and history, complete musculoskeletal physical exam and acquisition and review of appropriate radiological studies (X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs). Patient-tailored treatment recommendations are based on findings and diagnosis in conjunction with age, activity level, and medical history.
Treatment recommendations vary from conservative non-surgical measures to surgical intervention. Options are discussed with the patient as part of education and counselling by KIMS Joint Replacement Service surgeons. Non-surgical treatment includes anti-inflammatory medications, joint injections, physical therapy, and/or an individually designed home exercise program.
KIMS Joint Replacement Service surgeons are experts in the spectrum of joint replacement procedures for the hip and knee. Surgical treatment often involves a total joint reconstruction/joint arthroplasty. For the knee this may involve unicompartmental knee replacement or total knee replacement. A small subset of patients may be candidates for a bone realignment procedure called an osteotomy. For the hip, treatment may involve a bone-conserving surface replacement procedure or a total hip replacement.
