Most patients in India present with advanced stages of degeneration of both knees requiring knee replacement surgery. Patients often keep hopping on the good leg when only one knee is initially involved and would reluctantly accept surgical intervention when the situation becomes hopeless and mobility comes to a grinding halt. Such patients predictably require more than one total replacement before on improved functional status occurs, and hence the question of multiple joint replacements under one anaesthetic (Head and Paradies 1977; Ritter and Randolph 1976). This study analyses the morbidity and coast analysis in sixty consecutive bilateral total knee replacements performed sequentially by one surgeon (SKSM).
