Patellofemoral Joint Replacement

Patellofemoral Joint Replacement the most advanced type of partial knee replacement. Dr. Harprit is also the first and the only surgeon in all of India to successfully carry out a Patellofemoral joint replacement surgery for isolated Patellofemoral joint arthritis. Such a patient would otherwise have been given long and unmeasured doses of analgesics for years altogether, until old enough or worse enough to merit a Total Knee Replacement… and which still might have been too early for him! In hand of a normal orthopaedic surgeon this type of knee would end up having a total replacement of the joint i.e TKR thereby sacrificing the entirely normal cartilage unnecessarily, but in highly specialized centres in the world PFJ would be the answer.
