Hi, the options depend on how much you can afford. their are basic to high profile implants available. The commonest manufacturers are Johnson & johnson's dePuy, Zimmer, Stryker, Smith n Nephew and so on. They cost somewhat in the range of 70,000-1,50,000 INR. I would suggest go for a gender knee by Zimmer as its made for women.
Good luck
