Total Knee Replacement
Total Knee Replacement surgery is an operation that involves replacing a worn out knee with an artificial joint.
The most common reason for knee replacement surgery is severe osteoarthritis of that knee.
It can be done in patients who have had previous injuries or fractures to their knee and the residual sequel of that is now severe osteoarthritis.
The surgery involves refashioning the ends of the femur and tibia bones which form the knee joint in a very advanced and technical manner. The artificial knee joint is then placed on the cut ends of the bones.
