Hello
You can try Acupressure for your condition which is No Medicine- No Surgery therapy.
Pain in any area is due to blockages in the meridian.
Acupressure stimulator can help release this blockage.
Slight changes in diet will help to improve your condition quickly.
Cupping is equally useful.

No, there's no average age for knee replacement.

However, younger patients are often discouraged from opting for this surgery because:

  • It is assumed that younger patients will require another knee replacement surgery owing to their high participation in rigorous activities.
  • Younger candidates are also more prone to experiencing prosthetics failure ((that is, incapability of the device in ensuring proper functioning of the joints - same can be attributed to infection of the implants, mechanical failure in the device, or loosening of the device)), which thus calls for revision surgery.

 

Additionally, doctors often evaluate patients on a case-by-case basis to prescribe total/partial knee replacement - and below mentioned are the points that factor into their decision-making: 

  • Degenerative joint diseases as well as the strength of bone.
  • Stiffness.
  • Knee deformity.
  • And/or any such condition which restricts your daily physical movement.

Only case in which you will disqualify for knee replacement surgery is if your bones are too weak to support implants.

To conclude: There's no upper cap to knee replacement age, or any knee replacement age limit.

Individuals with osteoarthritis should be able to go for knee replacement surgery in our knowledge, but if there's any other complication, then the doctor might restrict.

So we advise you to visit multiple doctors, enquire about the procedure, your overall health/knee condition, and how the surgery would benefit same.

And also discuss about their past experiences and success rate, as well as risks/common side effects, along with correction treatments & compensation.

 

In knee replacement surgery, Total knee replacement would be a more viable mean than partial knee replacement.

But take this with a pinch of salt.

 

Read our blog to understand cost breakdown & diagnostic testing - Knee Replacement Surgery Cost.
