What is knee replacement surgery?
Knee replacement is a surgical procedure that involves the use of metal and plastic components to cover the damaged parts of the knee joint, including the kneecap. This surgery is typically recommended for individuals who have severe arthritis or a significant knee injury that cannot be treated through other means. The knee joint can be affected by various forms of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis, which causes the breakdown of joint cartilage and adjacent bone, rheumatoid arthritis, which leads to inflammation and excessive fluid, and traumatic arthritis caused by injury.
The primary goal of knee replacement surgery is to alleviate knee pain and disability that cannot be managed with other treatments by resurfacing the damaged parts of the knee joint.
