Patellofemoral Joint Replacement (PFJ)

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.
