MISV TKR: A Game-Changer in Knee Replacement Surgery in Landmark Hospitals

Posted in : Uncategorized on by :

For years, Total Knee Replacement surgery has been a standard solution for severe knee arthritis, known for significantly improving the quality of life for many. However, the associated postoperative pain and the necessity for long and often painful physiotherapy have been major deterrents. Recognizing this, Dr. Sudhir Reddy of Landmark Hospital has pioneered a method that is changing the landscape of knee replacement surgeries.

His technique, the Minimally Invasive SubVastus Approach (MISV) for Total Knee Replacement, deviates markedly from the standard or robotic TKR methods. Traditional methods involve a long incision and cutting through the quadriceps muscle, leading to more pain, bleeding, and a longer, painful recovery period. Dr. Reddy’s MISV approach, however, ensures that the quadriceps muscle remains intact. This key difference results in a smaller incision, considerably less pain, and reduced bleeding.

One of the most significant advantages of the MISV TKR is the immediate postoperative recovery. Patients can walk right after the surgery and experience much less pain when bending the knee, thanks to the preservation of the quadriceps muscle. This approach not only minimizes the need for extensive physiotherapy but also accelerates the return to normal activities.

Dr. Sudhir Reddy’s expertise in this field is unparalleled. Having performed around 10,000 TKR surgeries with a success rate exceeding 99%, his method has become the preferred choice in his center and a beacon of hope for patients across South India. For the past 15 years, the MISV approach has been exclusively used in his center, demonstrating its efficacy and patient-centric focus. Dr. Reddy’s innovative approach to knee replacement surgery is not just a medical advancement; it’s a transformative experience for patients, redefining recovery and comfort in orthopedic care.
