Total Knee Replacement Surgery
What Is A Total Knee Replacement Surgery?
When the cartilage has worn away, an artificial knee (called a prosthesis) can take its place. The surgery to implant the prosthesis is termed a total knee replacement.
Only the surface of the joint is removed – the arthritic ends of the bones are shaved off and replaced with new metal and plastic surfaces.
The knee replacement recreates the normal function of the knee. While the idea of getting an artificial knee joint may be frightening to some, it is one of the safest and most effective medical procedures.
Maintaining your post surgical treatment care is almost as important as getting the surgery itself. Our surgical procedures and rehabilitative practices may be highly advanced, but your attention to detail is also an important component of your total knee replacement recovery.
