What is knee replacement surgery?
Knee replacement is also called total knee replacement or knee arthroplasty. Total knee replacement is basically a major surgery where the damaged components of the knee joint can be replaced with prosthetics or artificial implants. The knee surgery is considered for someone who has suffered a severe knee injury or has severe arthritis.
The damaged portion of the knee is resurfaced and replaced with implants with the use of specialized instruments. The benefit of an artificial knee when implanted offers quite a normal function of the new joint. The implant is functional for more than 15 years and is suitable for all age groups and indications.

Types of knee replacement surgery
Total knee replacement: Also known as knee replacement, a total knee replacement basically involves where the entire joint has to be replaced. The surgery helps in providing complete relief from pain and helps in the smooth functioning of the knee.
Partial Knee replacement: In the partial knee replacement surgery, there is only a small part of the cartilage that gets replaced with a metal or plastic prosthesis. In this particular surgery, the natural bones are preserved apart from the part that is damaged. This is usually minimally invasive surgery with a smaller incision and also has less blood loss and less pain too.
conditions that require knee replacement?
There are various types of arthritis that affect the knee joints. Osteoarthritis is a common disease, a degenerative joint disease that affects the middle-aged and older adults. This causes the breakdown of the adjacent bone in the knees. Rheumatoid arthritis that causes inflammation of the synovial membranes can lead to stiffness and pain. Arthritis due to injuries or traumatic arthritis can also cause damage to the cartilage of the knee.
If one has suffered a serious injury and that has affected the knee joint there may be a possibility that the ligaments and tendons are damaged. This can often lead to the cartilage getting damaged over time and cause a lot of pain and stiffness. If the pain and stiffness is not controlled with the treatments, then there is a need for the knee to be replaced.
The main aim of the knee replacement surgery is to resurface the damaged parts of the knee and to relieve knee pain that could not be controlled by any other way of treatment.
