Knee replacement, also known as knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability. It is most commonly performed for osteoarthritis, and also for other knee diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis.
Other major causes of debilitating pain include meniscus tears, cartilage defects, and ligament tears. Debilitating pain from osteoarthritis is much more common in the elderly. Knee replacement surgery can be performed as a partial or a total knee replacement. In general, the surgery consists of replacing the diseased or damaged joint surfaces of the knee with metal and plastic components shaped to allow continued motion of the knee.

Dr. Nishikant Kumar did and excellent job. My father wanted full bending knee replacements only. The two operations have been performed exceedingly well. My father had zero pain post-operatively. He can walk without a stick in a very short period. Dr. Nishikant Kumar is an amazing doctor in himself.
I, my family and relatives have been consulting Dr. Nishikant Kumar for all our orthopaedic problems and are very satisfied with the treatment we have had. I have also undergone two surgeries due to sports injury and have recovered very well and back to my normal life. I have been recommending his treatment to the people I know and I will continue to do so..
Dr. Nishikant Kumar performed hip replacement surgery on my mom's hip. She had been going through excruciating pain and if not for Dr. Nishikant Kumar we would have not known what to do. Dr and his team took tremendous effort and involvement for the whole procedure. He made sure my mother was taken good care of post-surgery. We had always been a little sceptical about the whole knee replacement procedure but reading about doctor and talking to some of his patients convinced us to go talk to the doctor. A very kind person, he calmly heard my mom and made sure she was comfortable and relaxed throughout the procedure. Now she is walking absolutely without pain. I have no words to thank him and will be eternally grateful to have helped my mom get back on her feet. Happy to recommend him to everyone who needs help.
