Home A Knee Replacement

Damage caused due to arthritis – both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis – is the most common reason behind knee joint replacement. The procedure involves replacing a damaged knee with an artificial joint. Replacement knees can fit the needs and specifications, depending on age, health, and activity level. The dedicated joint replacement surgeons perform arthroplasty in routine, complex, complicated, and revision cases.
Knee replacement surgery helps reduce pain and restores function in severely diseased knee joints. It is also known as knee arthroplasty and the procedure involves replacing the damaged portion with an artificial joint (prosthesis). The Orthopaedic surgeon finds out the range of motion, stability, and strength of the knee with the help of an X-ray to determine the extent of the damage. The age of the patient, activity level, weight, knee size and shape, and health of the patient are taken into account before choosing knee replacement prostheses and surgical techniques.
