Get Back to Your Daily Activities Without Any Pain

Knee Replacement is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability. Knee replacement surgery can be performed as a partial or a total knee replacement. In general, the surgery consists of replacing the diseased or damaged joint surfaces of the knee with metal and plastic components shaped to allow continued motion of the knee.

  • Severe knee pain is experienced that limits your everyday activities, such dressing, bathing, getting out of bed or a chair, or climbing stairs.
  • Knee stiffness
  • Moderate or severe knee pain while you are resting, day or night
  • Long-lasting knee inflammation and swelling that doesn’t get better with rest or medications

The most serious complication is infection of the joint, which occurs in <1% of patients. Risk factors for infection are related to both patient and surgical factors.

The knee at times may not recover its normal range of motion (0–135 degrees usually) after total knee replacement. Much of this is dependent on pre-operative function. Most patients can move up to 0–110 degrees, but stiffness of the joint can also occur. In some situations, manipulation of the knee under anesthetic is used to reduce post-operative stiffness. Nowadays there are also many implants from manufacturers that are designed to be "high-flexible" knees, offering more range of motion to your knees.

You will able to resume normal leisure activities within six weeks after surgery. However, it may take up to three months for pain and swelling to settle down.

  2. The main reason to have knee replacement surgery is to ease pain and disability caused by arthritis or other joint problems, while preserving movement. Less commonly, it is used to correct some kinds of knee deformity.
    Partial Knee Repalcement:
    Partial Knee Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure which is being used to relieve arthritis from one of the knee compartments in which the damaged parts of the knee are replaced.
    Total Knee Repalcement:
    Replacing the painful and degerative joint with an artificial joint gives the joint a new surface, which moves smoothly without causing pain. The goal is to help people return to many of their activities with less pain and with greater freedom of movement.
