Total Knee Replacement
What is a Total Knee Replacement?
A Total Knee Replacement (also called Total Knee Arthoplasty) is a surgical procedure designed to replace the severely diseased knee joint with an artificial knee joint.
It involves removing parts of your femur (thigh bone), tibia (shin bone) and patella ( kneecap) and replacing them with a combination of surgical-grade metal alloys and highly wear resistant plastic.
It's designed to help with pain and restore the bending movement of the knee.
