Mr Moholkar has designed a knee instrument which helps to balance a knee while surgery is carried out. This improves the results following a knee replacement. Mr Moholkar’s approach towards knee replacement has been the balanced way right from the beginning when he started doing knee replacements way back in 2002. His results both regarding patient satisfaction, PROMS (Patient-reported outcome measures) and survivorship (length of time his knee replacements last) reflect this approach. Please ask him about his results, which he is very passionate about and will be his pleasure to share this with you. He uses the medial pivot concept in doing knee replacements. He teaches and lectures worldwide on this topic. He has lectured in Belgium, Italy, Amsterdam, UK, India, Ireland and many other countries on his method of doing knee replacements and the method of reducing pain and improving satisfaction.
He uses enhanced recovery pathway during knee replacement surgery and has called his pathway, GBS (Get better soon) to designate his design. He usually recommends surgery under spinal anaesthetic. Analgesia is started before surgery, and a selective concoction of drugs is used around the time of surgery to reduce the intensity of pain a person will experience after knee replacement surgery. The majority of his patients will be able to go home 48 hours after surgery.
Mr Moholkar has published and presented several papers and posters both nationally and internationally. Further information is available on his website https://kneeclinics.co.uk
