What is knee replacement?
Knee replacement, also known as knee arthroplasty or a total knee replacement, is an operation to repair an arthritis-damaged knee. The kneecap and the caps on the ends of the bones that make up the knee joint are made of metal and plastic. If you have severe knee injuries or arthritis, this surgery might be an option for you.
The purpose of knee replacement surgery is to resurface the damaged areas of the knee joint and to relieve persistent knee pain that is unaffected by other forms of care.
An orthopedic surgeon evaluates your knee’s range of motion, stability, and strength to decide if a knee replacement is the best option for you. X-rays are used to assess the degree of damage.
Depending on your age, weight, level of activity, knee size and shape, and general health, your doctor may recommend one of several knee replacement prostheses and surgical approaches.
Our experts at Mediranco consider every single aspect to determine if a knee arthroplasty surgery is need for you.
