Apollo Speciality Hospitals, Madurai introduces Novo technique for joint replacement, a first in South Tamil Nadu

08 Dec 2018

The Novo Technique is faster and better than conventional techniques. Conventional technique involves use of large number of surgical instruments for surgery, hence resulting in longer duration of surgery. In conventional technique surgeons were highly dependent on instruments for achieving precision, accuracy and perfect alignment. Novo technique on the other hand utilizes surgeons' expertise, experience and skills with minimal use of instruments.

Dr. Jayesh Sonaje, MBBS, MS (Orthopaedics), with a Fellowship in Joint Replacement and Arthroscopy (Germany) and Consultant - Orthopaedics, Joint Replacement and Arthroscopy at Apollo Specialty Hospitals, Madurai said, “Novo technique for total knee replacement has been launched for the first time in Madurai.  This new advanced technique mainly focuses on giving best possible results at very low cost in very less time to patients undergoing Total Knee replacement surgeries.

As compared to conventional technique, Novo technique reduces:

Mr. Ganeshan was operated using Novo technique at Apollo Speciality Hospitals, Madurai said "I was admitted on October 3, the surgery was conducted the next day and I was discharged on October 8. I started walking on the third day after surgery and it was quick and painless. I never felt that I had undergone a surgery and recovered well. I had bent knees which have become straight now."

Ms. Dhanalakshmi who had the surgery done on both knees, said "After the surgery I wasn't limping or using walker. I recovered quickly."

Patients gets consistently good results and satisfaction with total knee replacement. Being a cost effective technique, now even a patient from a poor financial background can consider knee replacement surgery and enjoy the second innings of life.
