What is Total Knee Replacement?
Total Knee Replacement, also known as knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure that involves replacing a damaged, worn, or diseased knee with an artificial joint. The goal of this surgery is to relieve pain and restore function in severely diseased knee joints, typically caused by arthritis or injury. During the procedure, the surgeon removes damaged bone and cartilage from the surface of the knee joint and replaces them with an artificial joint made of metal alloys, high-grade plastics, and polymers. This artificial joint mimics the function of a healthy knee, enabling patients to move more freely and without pain. Total Knee Replacement is a common and highly successful procedure that significantly improves quality of life for those suffering from severe knee problems.
