Total knee replacement is considered to be one of the most successful surgeries in modern day orthopaedics. Lot of people who were previously afraid of this procedure are undergoing this and are enjoying the benefits of this procedure. But there is a small group of patients who will definitely benefit from this surgery, but cannot undergo such a major procedure under general or spinal anaesthesia due to other severe comorbidities. Combined femoral and sciatic block turns out to be a safe and novel alternative to provide benefits of joint replacement surgery for such patients without any serious risk to life and survival.
