Knee joints are replaced with artificial implants only when all alternative methods of treatment are exhausted and pain restricts movements of any individual. It is said that “life is movement… and movement is life”, thus without mobility there is no life.
Total knee replacement is a very successful surgery performed at the right time. There are many varients, and choosing a particular model can be daunting. Our surgeons can help you choose good stable implants that give you longevity beyond others. Its just a matter of asking “all about” it.
In brief, the surgery involves minimal bone cuts near the joints and an artificial bearing surface fixed with or without bone cement so that movements are free, painless and joint stability is resorted.
The surgical tricks of ligament sparing and muscle sparing give a faster recovery. Just ask for the details.
