Dr Udai Prakash at the Arthrex Surgical Skills Lab – LATEST INNOVATIONS IN ADVANCED KNEE ARTHROSCOPY at Arthrolab, Germany

I was recently in Munich to update himself in the latest technology in knee ligament reconstruction. The Arthrex surgical skills lab is equipped with the latest arthroscopic wet and dry lab simulators and is stocked with a complete inventory of the latest instrumentation and implants.

The exposure certainly gave me the edge in offering my patients the latest surgical options in knee ligament surgery.

 

The knee has several ligaments that can get damaged after sports injuries and accidents. These include the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), the PCL (posterior cruciate ligament), MCL (medial collateral ligament) etc.

Without surgical reconstruction many young patients can never get back to sports and an active lifestyle. The knee becomes vulnerable to getting worn out (arthritis) at a younger age than average.

Early and expert ligament reconstruction can help young people get back their former active lifestyle and delaying surgery can result in damage to other structures within the knee. It’s like a loose hinge on a door, if not repaired early can result in other hinges coming loose.

Knee arthroscopy procedures (keyhole surgery) have advanced many fold in the last few years. This was an opportunity for surgeons like myself  interested in knee surgery to update themselves.

The experienced faculty from around the world conducted practical demonstrations in some of the most advanced arthroscopic (keyhole) procedures for ligament and meniscal injuries of the knee.

Dr Udai Prakash at the Oxford Partial Knee Replacement Course, Pune Nov 2015

Dr Udai Prakash was invited as faculty for the recent Oxford Partial (Uni-compartmental) Knee Replacement course held in Pune to teach young surgeons from across the country on how to do this unique surgery.
The course was organised by Zimmer-Biomet – the largest orthopaedic implant manufacturer in the world. Amongst the faculty were surgeons from Oxford University, UK.
The Oxford group from the UK are pioneers in this type of knee replacement where only the worn out part of the knee is replaced. The results in terms of function and complications are far lower for the partial knee replacement when compared to total knee replacement.
