Does Knee Pain Interfere in Your Daily Life ?

Knee Replacement is the most common orthopedic operation. The damaged part is removed and replaced with artificial prostheses. The three sections of the knee are medial, lateral, and compartment. Damage to the cartilages that cover the joint surfaces is caused by many factors such as inflammatory arthritis, osteoarthritis, etc. When all the three parts are removed due to the damages, it is termed as a Total knee replacement surgery.

Knee replacement is done under general or epidural anesthesia. General anesthesia totally wipes off the memories of the patient during operation and they can recall nothing. The epidural anesthesia becomes numb from the waist to the ankle. The patients will be able to see or hear everything as it is a local anesthesia offering a numb sensation to the knee.
The type of anesthesia which is administered to the patient depends on the patient’s condition and the anesthetist’s decision. Incisions are made on the knee joint to access the internal part of the knee. The damaged cartilage and bones are removed which is followed by artificial implantation.
The knee prosthesis contains femoral, tibial, and patellar components. Variation depends on the manufacturer. Or a maximum of 10-15 years, the artificial joints can last with limited physical activity, especially to the knee.
Total Knee Replacement is done when the medication, physiotherapy, and knee pads do not have an effect at all. This surgery involves the replacement of all the three components and implanting prosthesis in order to reduce pain and improve the functioning of the joints.
As a preventing measure, blood thinning drugs and stockings are provided. After the surgery, physiotherapy helps the patient rehabilitate.
