  • Gold knee joint revolutionises replacement surgery


    3D gold knee and ePlus poly cover can also enhance longevity, says doctor

    Research in total knee replacement surgery has led to gold knee-blended joint with vitamin ePlus poly cover. The Guntur-based Sai Bhaskar Hospitals has successfully operated upon a 65-year-old man, Gopal Rao, and implanted a gold ceramic-coated knee joint.

    Managing Director Busireddy Narendra Reddy said here on Saturday that for the first time a vitamin ePlus poly cover with gold plated knee joint, gold femur, was used in AP while it has been in vogue in the USA since July 2011.

    “In comparison to other joint prostheses, knee replacement implants, made of cobalt and chromium that continuously release allergenic metal ions, with ceramic surface coating on metallic components has many benefits in reducing both allergic reactions and wear,” Dr. Narendra Reddy said.

    The new 3D gold knee and ePlus poly cover can also enhance the longevity and performance in total knee replacement surgery.
