Opulent Gold Knee implanted at Saishree Hospital


12/4/2018

PUNE: The renowned Hip and Knee Replacement Surgeon Dr. Neeraj Adkar, successfully implanted Opulent, the high flexion Gold Knee joint system in Knee replacement surgery at SaiShree Hospital for Special Surgery, Aundh in presence of Dr. Carl Becker from Lancaster, PA United States.

The Opulent Bionik Gold surface is for allergy and wear protection of knee implant. Macroscopically, the Bionik Gold surface presents a metallic, light golden yellow appearance whereby the coating forms an extremely strong bond with the implant. In addition to Opulent Gold knee surgery, cobalt–chromium–molybdenum alloy (CoCrMo) is one of the most important materials used in orthopedic applications.

The CoCrMo with its proven efficacy has been a regular choice for knee replacement implant material more than a decade. An advanced technology process of coasting of inert material TiNbN is an icing on the cake providing high flexion, best in class biocompatibility and longevity on opulent besides the regular properties of CoCrMo.

“The implant used for this surgery has a gold colored Titanium-Nitride/Zirconium nitride coating. Not only does the golden knee implant prevents any allergic reaction with the body, but also, is more durable and has a longer life. After knee replacement most of the patients are able to perform their daily routine within few weeks,” said Dr. Neeraj Adkar

He further said, Candidacy for a knee replacement is not based on age, but on the person’s level of pain and immobility. Living with a painful joint that prohibits you from working or participating in normal life activities is an outdated way of thinking so OPULENT knee technique is best choice for patients.

“In India, their lifestyle requires them to use their knees a lot, typically they don't exercise enough; they are skinny and have poor bone mass. All of this leads to the need for knee replacements.”  Said Dr. Carl E. Becker, MD Orthopedic Surgery. He added further, In India, bone health is a huge issue and people are largely unaware of the importance of nutrition, vitamins and minerals to develop peak bone mass.
