Indian hospital launches joint replacement technology


A new joint replacement technology has been launched by the Madras Institute of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (Miot) Hospitals in India.

The 'Joint for Life' technology provides joint replacements that are designed to last a lifetime, negating the need for revision surgery.

Mr Mohandas, managing director of Miot Hospitals, told the Thaindian News: "With more and more people seeking to lead active lives even in their 70s and beyond, there has been a tremendous increase in the demand for knee and hip replacement surgeries.

"The need for joint replacement is increasing among the younger population too due to stressful lifestyles and higher incidence of accidents."

The director said that the new technology gives patients the confidence that they are getting "the best that science and surgery offers" and saves them from the "trauma and additional cost" of revision surgery.

India is renowned for its modern private hospitals and highly skilled medical staff, many of whom received training in the UK.
