Arthritic knees can be restored through knee replacement surgery (also known as knee arthroplasty or total knee joint replacement surgery). Regarding kneecaps, metal or plastic parts are used to protect their edges. Anyone with severe arthritis or a serious knee injury may benefit from this procedure. The knee joint can be affected by a variety of forms of arthritis.
We use three types of knee joint replacement surgery: Computer-Assisted Knee Joint Replacement
Computer-assisted total knee joint replacement surgery is a process that uses sophisticated computer imaging to guarantee the maximum level of accuracy during the treatment. With the help of an actual time infrared-based tracking system, we can get almost perfect alignment and soft tissue balance, which are the two most dangerous mechanisms of a successful replacement.
Primary Knee Joint Replacement
A MEDICAL INTERVENTION, then, is a primary knee joint replacement procedure. Inserts made of metal, high-density polyethylene or ceramic are used to replace a knee joint that has been damaged or diseased. This is the primary process when a patient has their first joint replacement. The femur (the long thigh bone) ends at the tibia (the large lower leg bone), making your knee a pivot joint (tibia). A smooth ligament in a strong knee covers the femur and tibia. The soft ligament makes twisting your knee easier, allowing the two bones to glide over each other. With the help of the muscles and tendons surrounding the knee joint, you can walk without pain.
