  • Minimal Protocol TKR

    Over the past two decades by following the best surgical practices and innovating, Dr Marothi has developed a special protocol to do total knee replacement surgery in a very short time. This offers many advantages to the patient. Called the ‘Minimal Protocol TKR’, this total knee replacement surgery is done quickly, safely and the patient can walk very soon after the operation. After a few months the patient can resume nearly all his/her activities.

    Key points of Minimal Protocol TKR*:

  • Minimal time – key steps of the surgery are completed in less than 20 minutes
  • Minimal bone removal
  • Minimal tubes - No drains or catheters are attached on the patient after surgery
  • Minimal marks - surgical wound is sutured from inside
  • Minimal Recovery time - patients can stand up soon after the surgery
  • Minimal need for revision - Minimal Protocol Surgery lasts for 30+ years, so revision surgery may not be required. [Revision surgery is done when the artificial joint wears out].
  • Minimal possibility of infection - Dedicated operation theatre for joint replacements
  • Minimal post-operative change in life - Patients can easily sit cross legged
  • *The exact details will vary from case to case.

    The key point in Minimal Protocol TKR is however its gradual but dynamic and everchanging nature.As newer technologies and material come into use, Dr Marothi is quick to modify his techniques for further improvement.
