Knee Replacement Surgery

Knee Replacement Surgery

Our Knee is the largest and most complex joint that’s an amalgamation of three bones; the Femur(thighbone), the Tibia (Shinbone) and the Patella (Knee cap). The ends of these three bones are covered with articular cartilage, which is a smooth substance. This allows for smooth movement of the bone within the joint. A healthy Knee is extremely essential to perform the utmost of our routine activities.

In a healthy Knee, all of these bones work in harmony. Still, a complaint or an injury can disrupt this smooth functioning, thereby causing discomfort due to pain, weakness and reduced function. One of the most common causes of habitual knee pain is Arthritis. Due to an arthritic knee, the articular cartilage wears out, leading to the bones rubbing against each other and wearing out.

This is when your orthopaedic surgeon might recommend a Knee Replacement Surgery to help you get back to walking comfortably.

What is Knee Replacement Surgery?

A Knee Replacement Surgery is also called Knee Arthroplasty. During this surgery, your surgeon removes the damaged cartilage and the underpinning bone. He replaces them with essence implants that recreate the face of the joint. Still, the decision to replace your knee cap is taken by the surgeon depending upon the complexity of the problem.
