Though this procedure is done in same surgical sitting, patient can start walking from the same day only
Though it is done in same surgical sitting patient can be discharged after 24 hours of procedure
The procedure is done in a single surgical setting and takes less than two hours as it utilizes a minimally access approach with no major incision or cuts.
Yes, we can treat both knees at a time
Till date we had not found neither any complication has been reported by any patient. Except mild bruising / redness/ swelling at the sight of aspiration.
Besides an initial pain at the injection site, the patient will not experience any discomfort. Few patients have developed a minor fever, headache, nausea or vomiting after the treatment. However, these side effects have never lasted more than three days and usually get resolved within 24 hours. No long-term negative side effects have been reported.
Yes, there are evidence I and evidence II literature published in the indexed peer-reviewed journals.
Because the procedure protocols will vary from patient to patient, each patient has its unique condition; hence the cost may vary from patient to patient.
No, this procedure is a minimally invasive procedure; hence there will be no cuts or stitches on the affected joint
Neither we separate individual types of cells nor do we culture cells, this surgical procedure is done in the same surgical sitting.
No, it doesn’t make any significant difference
Though this procedure is minimally invasive, low-impact activities can be done from the first day, even encouraging such activities.
The results may take from 1-4 months, but it may take as long as 6-9 months in few cases.
As of date, more than 2000 patients have undergone Sahaj Therapy® in India & leading an active life. In addition, more than 10000 patients have been benefitted from the treatment worldwide.
Yes, to gain the strength of muscles, our trained physiotherapist or staff will guide you on what exercises to be done and its schedule.
No, it is not a stem cell therapy, nor it is promoted as stem cell therapy.
Last- Yes, it is, but it may vary from policy terms and conditions. We suggest before going through the procedure, speak to the concerned TPA or Insurance company.

What do you mean by Avascular Necrosis of hip?
It is a degenerative joint disease or degenerative arthritis; osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic condition of the joints. It generally affects larger weight-bearing joints such as the knee, hip, etc., having a common reason for pain, i.e., Cartilage Damage. The wearing down of the protective tissue at the ends of bones (cartilage) occurs gradually and worsens over time. In normal joints, a firm, rubbery material called cartilage covers the end of each bone. Cartilage provides a smooth, gliding surface for joint motion and acts as a cushion between the bones. In OA, the cartilage breaks down, causing pain, swelling, and problems moving the joint. As OA worsens over time, bones may break down and develop growths called spurs. In addition, bits of bone or cartilage may chip off and float around in the joint. In the body, an inflammatory process occurs, and cytokines (proteins) and enzymes develop that further damage the cartilage. In the final stages of OA, the cartilage wears away, and bone rubs against bone, leading to joint damage and more pain.
The pain, reduced mobility, side effects from medication, and other factors associated with osteoarthritis can lead to negative health effects not directly related to the joint disease. Knee or hip pain may lead to a sedentary lifestyle that promotes weight gain and possible obesity. Being overweight or obese can lead to the development of diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Side effects from medications used for pain relief, such as Analgesics, Steroids, etc., can also damage vital body organs such as the liver, kidney, etc. Narcotic pain relievers or steroids can cause people to feel dizzy, unbalanced and leads to addiction.
This is categorized into four classes based on severity, Grade of Cartilage damage, and degree of deformity. Grade 1, 2,3 & 4
Symptoms of Osteoarthritis vary, depending on which joints are affected and how severely they are affected. However, the most common symptoms are pain and stiffness, particularly in the morning or after resting. In addition, affected joints may get swollen, especially after extended activity. These symptoms tend to build over time rather than show up suddenly. Some of the common symptoms include:
Sore or stiff joints – particularly the knees and Hips – after inactivity or overuse.
Limited range of motion or stiffness that goes away after movement
Clicking or cracking sound when a joint bends
Mild swelling around a joint
The pain is made worse by prolonged activity and relieved by rest.
Increased pain associated with cold temperature and high humidity
Pain that is worse after activity or toward the end of the day
This is a slow progression disease often; symptoms come on gradually over weeks to months. However, over long periods, the inflammation associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis can cause bone erosion and joint deformity.
The wrist and hands are most commonly involved, with the same joints typically involved on both sides of the body. This body's immune system attacks its tissue, including joints. In severe cases, it attacks internal organs also.
Rheumatoid Arthritis affects joint linings i.e., Cartilage causing painful swelling.
If not modulated, the disease may also affect other parts of the body.
This may result in a low red blood cell count, inflammation around the lungs, and inflammation around the heart. In addition, fever and low energy may also be present.
Avascular necrosis (AVN), also called osteonecrosis, bone infarction, aseptic necrosis, and ischemic bone necrosis, is cellular death (necrosis) of bone components due to interruption of the blood supply. Without blood, the bone tissue dies, and the bone collapses. If avascular necrosis involves the bones of a joint, it often leads to the destruction of the joint articular surfaces or Cartilage.
As the condition worsens, your affected joint may hurt only when you put weight on it. Eventually, the joint may hurt even when you're lying down. Pain can be mild or severe and usually develops gradually. Pain associated with avascular necrosis of the hip may be focused in the groin, thigh, or buttock.
Avascular necrosis is the death of bone tissue due to a lack of blood supply. Also called osteonecrosis, avascular necrosis can lead to tiny breaks in the bone and the bone's eventual collapse. The blood flow to a section of bone can be interrupted if the bone is fractured or the joint becomes dislocated.
