What is Knee Replacement Surgery?

Knee replacement surgery, also known as total knee arthroplasty, involves replacing a damaged knee joint with prosthetic components. The implants typically consist of metal components that replace the ends of the thigh bone (femur) and shin bone (tibia), as well as a plastic insert to recreate smooth joint movement.

How Does Knee Replacement Surgery Work?

Knee replacement surgery typically involves the following steps:

  • Incision: The surgeon makes an incision to access the knee joint.
  • Bone Preparation: The damaged surfaces of the knee bones are carefully prepared to receive the implant components.
  • Implant Placement: The prosthetic components are precisely fitted and secured into place.
  • Closure The incision is closed, typically with dissolvable sutures.

What Does Knee Replacement Surgery Treat?

Knee replacement surgery is a common solution for severe knee conditions such as:

  • Osteoarthritis: Addressing advanced damage to the knee joint due to wear-and-tear.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: Managing inflammation-related damage to the knee.
  • Post-traumatic Arthritis Treating damage caused by a previous knee injury.

Who Is a Candidate for Knee Replacement Surgery?

You might be a good candidate for knee replacement surgery if you:

  • Have severe knee pain that interferes with daily life.

Types of Knee Replacement Surgery

  • Total Knee Replacement: The most common type, replacing all three compartments of the knee joint.
  • Partial Knee Replacement: Involves replacing only one or two compartments if the damage is less extensive.
  • Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement: Some surgeons offer this option, using a smaller incision and specialized techniques.
