Pain Control After Knee Replacement

knee replacement surgery is done to replace the weight-bearing surface of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability in patients suffering from osteoarthritis. Many people across the world go through this painful procedure annually, but most of them are not equipped with the information necessary to make the post-surgery period easier. Postoperative pain may leave some patients initially questioning why they underwent the operation.

"All patients undergoing total knee replacement will experience pain; our challenge is to reduce the pain to a satisfactory level in the post-operative  period"

Multimodal pain control starts before surgery wherein the patient is administered drugs like iv paracetamol and pregabalin. Pain control works best when started before the procedure as it prevents the beginning of pain sensation from the very start.

Most knee replacements are performed under spinal anesthesia or combined spinal-epidural anesthesia where the anesthetic drugs are delivered through catheterin the spine region to numb both the legs. The catheter is kept inserted in the spine for approximately 18 to 24 hours after the surgery to give additional pain relieving drugs in the post-surgery period. This catheter can be continued for 2to 3 days to allow controlled delivery of local anesthetic drug and for continued pain control.

Along with painkillers, drugs to control nausea and vomiting are also used to make the patient comfortable in the post-operative period. Sometimes the surgeon might also inject a combination of local anesthetic, antibiotics, steroid and opioid painkiller in the joint region for local pain relief

The Right Pain Control Can Help
  • You to be more comfortable
  • You to get back to your normal routine
  • Promote healing

Multimodal pain management reduces pain after surgery, reduces the need for opioid painkillers and therefore reduces their side effects. It improves functional recovery with greater patient satisfaction. This also helps you participate to the best of your ability in your physical therapy program so that you have a joint that functions well. Since the surgeon and the anesthesiologist both play a very important role in this plan, discuss with your clinician the pain management plan that's right for you

Is Osteoarthritis the Cause of Your Hip Pain !!

Arthritis of the hip is a disease which wears away the cartilage between the femoral head and the acetabulum, the two bones will scrape against each other, raw bone on raw bone. When this happens, the joint becomes pitted, eroded and uneven. The result is pain, stiffness, and instability. In some cases, the motion of the leg may be greatly restricted. 

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It is degenerative and although it most often occurs in patients over the age of 50, it can occur at any age, especially if the joint is in some way damaged.

It is usually confined to the large weight-bearing joints of the lower extremities, including the hips and knees, but may affect the spine and upper extremity joints, too. Patients with osteoarthritis often develop large bones spurs, or osteophytes, around the joint, further limiting motion.


Osteoarthritis of the hip is a condition commonly referred to as "wear and tear" arthritis. Although the degenerative process may accelerate in persons with a previous hip injury, many cases of osteoarthritis occur when the hip simply wears out. Some experts believe there may exist a genetic predisposition in people who develop osteoarthritis of the hip. Abnormalities of the hip due to previous fractures or childhood disorders may also lead to a degenerative hip. Osteoarthritis of the hip is the most common cause for total hip replacement surgery. 


The first and most common symptom of osteoarthritis is a pain in the Hip or groin area during weight-bearing activities such as walking. People with hip pain usually compensate by limping or reducing the force on the arthritic hip. As a result of the cartilage degeneration, the hip loses its flexibility and strength and may result in the formation of bone spurs. 
Finally, as the condition worsens, the pain may be present all the time, even during non-weight-bearing activities. 

Before considering total hip replacement surgery, your doctor and you may try various non-surgical therapies. An appropriate weight reduction program may be beneficial in decreasing force across the hip joint. However, weight reduction can be difficult for people with hip arthritis since the arthritis pain precludes them from increasing their activity and burning calories. An exercise program may be instituted to improve the strength and flexibility of the hip and the other lower extremity joints. Lifestyle and activity modification may be undertaken in an attempt to minimize the activities that are associated with hip pain. Finally, various medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and nutritional supplements to reduce pain and inflammation associated with the disease may be considered. 

Assistive devices like a cane or a crutch can help to reduce the force transmitted through the hip joint during walking and thereby may help to decrease hip arthritis pain. If non-surgical treatment is unsuccessful, you and your surgeon may decide that a total hip replacement or Bipolar (Partial) Hip Replacement or Ceramic Total Hip Replacements (For young and Active Patients) the best available treatment option.
