MIOT Institute of Orthopaedics
Joint Replacement and Revision Surgery
At the renowned MIOT Hospitals Joint for Life programme, our experienced surgeons use the latest techniques and materials to find the perfect implant for every patient – one that suits their age, anatomy and lifestyle, and fits comfortably, enabling them to return to an active life.
Genetics, nutrition, activity and lifestyle are the cause for changes, over time, in our bones and joints. You could need a joint replacement surgery for a number of reasons: injury, bone disease, reduced blood supply, the wearing out of the joint due to wear and tear associated with age, etc. A joint replacement is a permanent solution to relieve pain and restore movement in the affected joint. Today, medical advancements have made it possible to replace our natural joints with artificial ones that are made from metal, polymers, ceramic or plastic. In the MIOT Joint for Life Programme, our expert surgeons perform replacement surgery of the knee, hip and shoulder. Backed by over 40 years of experience and more than 40,000 replacement surgeries and counting – MIOT Hospitals use current technologies and treatments to find that right implant to give you a joint that will last a lifetime.
