TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT

Knee replacement is a procedure in which the surgeon removes damaged or diseased parts of the patient's knee joint and replaces them with new artificial parts. The operation itself is called knee arthroplasty . The artificial joint itself is called a prosthesis. Most knee prostheses have four components or parts, and are made of a combination of metal and plastic, or metal and ceramic in some newer models.

Knee arthroplasty has two primary purposes: pain relief and improved functioning of the knee joint. Because of the importance of the knee to a person's ability to stand upright, improved joint functioning includes greater stability in the knee.
Disorders and conditions that may lead to the need for knee replacement surgery include:

Osteoarthritis (OA).
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Trauma. Damage to the knee from a fall, automobile accident, or workplace or athletic injury may trigger the process of cartilage breakdown inside the joint. Trauma is a common cause of damage to the knee joint.

For whom is this Surgery?

This can be answered by asking yourself the following questions.

• Do I have Daily Pain?
• Does my pain restrict my activities and enjoy life?
• Do I avoid going out due to pain?
• Do I avoid walking, exercising etc?
• Has my world become smaller because of pain?
If you answer yes for one or more of these questions it is better to consult your doctor and decide regarding having a joint replacement surgery.
