Pain in the knee caused by injury or arthritis can severely affect an individual's ability to lead a full and active life. Artificial (total) knee replacement may be recommended in order to replace the diseased (arthritic) parts of the joint with artificial components (usually the surfaces of the ends of the bones). This type of surgery has since become increasingly common in treating the condition of older individuals.
Why do you need Total Knee Replacement?
The key reason for arthritic joint replacements with artificial ones is to stop the bones from rubbing against each other other and causing pain. The replacement of painful arthritic joints with artificial joints can give bones new surfaces to move more smoothly without causing pain. The main objective is to help patients return to their normal activities with less pain and greater freedom of movement.
