Medications, walking support and altering activity levels may no longer be helpful after knee disease progresses beyond a certain level. If you are at this stage, Total Knee Replacement (TKR) surgery is the best treatment option, as it relieves pain, corrects deformity and allows you to easily perform your daily activities.

The team of surgeons at SBJH are the pioneers of TKR in India and use the "SMART" technique of Total Knee Replacement surgery. This cutting edge procedure is the latest advancement in replacement surgery. The TKR unit at SBJH is headed by Dr.Sivamurugan Soundarapandian, a highly trained and skilled surgeon in the field of arthroplasty.

After the "SMART" TKR, the patient will experience relief from pain and other symptoms. They will also be able to perform tasks like kneeling and squatting!


    When you choose the "SMART" technique for your TKR needs, you will be assigned the best team to provide you with all these benefits:

    • PAIN LESS: Patients will have minimal pain after the surgery. Pain management is very important to us, and we put the patient’s comfort first.

    • EARLY DISCHARGE: Patients deserve to be home with their loved ones. SBJH’s “SMART” technique allows patients to go home within 2 days. Due to our highly skilled team, our patients recover much quicker and are confident enough to go home early.

    • EARLY WALKING: Patients will be able to walk 4 hours after the “SMART” TKR.

    • EARLY NORMALCY: Patients are back to normal with 15 days post surgery!
