Also known as knee arthroplasty, total knee replacement is a surgical procedure used to repair a damaged knee. Orthopedic surgeons use metal and plastic prosthetics to cap the end of the bones that make up the knee joint, along with the kneecap.

Total knee replacement surgery is often recommended if non-surgical therapies like medication, physiotherapy, and using walking supports are no longer effective. The technique is a safe and effective intervention to relieve pain, correct leg deformity, and help the patient resume his/her regular activities.  Total knee replacement surgery is typically considered for someone who has severe end stage arthritis / stage 4 arthritis, or a severe knee injury.

Reasons for Total Knee Replacement

  • It is a treatment for pain and disability in the knee. Osteoarthritis is the most prevalent condition that results in the need for knee replacement.
  • To rehabilitate people with the degenerative joint disease who are unable to do normal activities that may involve bending at the knee.
  • To stabilize the knee that may have swollen or “gave away” due to its instability or injury.

The Procedure

Total knee replacement, which is performed under general anesthesia, varies depending on the patient’s condition and the surgeon’s approach. However, the procedure requires a stay in a hospital.

During the procedure, an incision will be made in the knee area, and the damaged knee joint surfaces will be removed. The prosthesis, which is made of either metal or plastic, will be used to resurface the knee joint. The orthopedic surgeon will then close the incision with stitches. He/she may place a drain in the incision site to remove the fluid. Finally, a sterile bandage will be applied.

Total Knee Replacement Recovery Time

The extent to which the patient will adhere to the doctor’s recommendations at home in the initial weeks after surgery has a significant impact on the outcome of the procedure. The patient will be issued with instructions that will aid in the healing process which will mainly focus on wound care, diet, and physical activities.

FAQ's

A total knee replacement surgery is a procedure we carry out when the patient has got advanced osteoarthritis and the articular cartilage of the knee completely worn out, and has a lot of excess osteophytes or excess bone developing. We use an artificial implant to replace and resurface the worn out parts of the knee.

Although a frequently conducted procedure with very low likelihood of complications, TKR is still considered a major surgery, and with any major surgery certain complications even if minimal are a possibility. These include: Fracture, wearing out of the prosthesis, Persistent pain, Potential bleeding, Infection, blood clots in the legs or lungs
