Joint Replacement

Joint replacement, also known as arthroplasty surgery, is a surgical procedure performed by orthopaedic surgeons to replace a worn-out or damaged joint surface with an orthopaedic prosthesis, which is an artificial device. Conventional joint replacement surgeries can be highly invasive and require longer recovery time and hospital stay. However, at Sterling Hospitals Ahmedabad, we offer a minimally invasive technique for joint replacement surgery that has significantly reduced complications to zero levels. This innovative technique takes minimum time to perform surgery, resulting in a faster recovery and shorter hospital stay.


The technique can be used for various types of joint replacements, including:

  • Knee Replacement: Knee arthroplasty or knee replacement surgery restores the normal functioning of the diseased knee joint by replacing the damaged bone with a joint-shaped prosthesis.
  • Hip Replacement: Hip arthroplasty or hip replacement surgery involves replacing the damaged hip joint with a prosthesis.
  • Shoulder Replacement: Trauma or injuries such as falls on the shoulder or accidents can cause fractures of the shoulder blade (scapula) or collarbone (clavicle) and dislocation of the arm bone. Shoulder replacement or shoulder arthroplasty involves the removal of damaged bone and replacing it with an implant made of plastic or metal.
  • Small Joint Replacement: Fractures and arthritis of small joints in the wrist, fingers, elbow, ankles, and foot can cause extreme pain and affect bone movements. Small joint replacement surgery involves the removal of damaged bone and replacing it with implants.


When choosing the best orthopaedic surgeon for your joint replacement surgery, consider the following:

  1. Surgeon's Credentials: Check the surgeon's certification, which indicates their skills, training, and experience to perform the surgery. Look for fellowship training in the specific type of surgery you need.
  2. Experience: Consider the surgeon's experience with the specific procedure or condition you require surgery for. Inquire about the number of patients with similar medical conditions they have treated and the number of high-risk cases they have encountered.
  3. Experience with High-Risk Cases: Ensuring that the surgeon has experience in handling high-risk cases is important to ensure they can address any potential complications that may arise during your surgery.
  4. Hospital Affiliation: Consider the quality of care provided by the hospital the surgeon is associated with. Top-rated hospitals, such as Sterling Hospitals Ahmedabad, typically have fewer complications and better survival rates. Additionally, consider the hospital's location and infrastructure as you will be spending a few days there after your surgery, and quality service is crucial during your stay.
  5. Insurance Coverage: Check if the hospital is covered under your insurance plan to avoid unexpected out-of-pocket expenses. However, still prioritize credentials, experience, outcomes, and hospital quality when selecting a surgeon for your procedure.
  6. Online Search: Utilize digital technology to search for the best surgeons. Shortlist surgeons based on proven cases and credibility and seek second opinions from referrals.
  7. In-person Consultation: Finally, meet with your shortlisted surgeons in person to address any doubts and gain confidence in your chosen surgeon.
