Revision surgery after knee replacement
After the knee replacement fails, a revision surgery becomes imminent. In this type of surgery, the old prosthesis is replaced with a new one.

PRP (stem cell) treatment for arthritis: Stem cell treatments are gaining pace with the passage of time. Because stem cells have the ability to blend with the environment, transform to any type of tissue as required, and multiply at an appreciable rate, the advocates of this surgery are growing more and more. It is believed that if the stem cells are placed beside an affected cartilage, the cells grow as cartilage tissues and help in solving the case, which is the factor around which the treatment revolves.
Stem cells are applied through injections or via the arthritis joint in the affected area. To deliver the cells accurately in the right area, physicians take help of medical imaging techniques, such as ultrasound. As of yet, a concrete guideline representing who should get the stem cell treatment has not been drafted yet. Doctors advise this surgery depending on the severity of the case and the overall health of the patient.
