Knee replacement becomes a necessity for those who have a stiff and painful knee and are unable to do even the day-to-day work with ease. It’s a surgical procedure to resurface a knee that has been damaged by arthritis mainly the Articular Surface knows as Cartilage.

This surgery is for those suffering from severe arthritis or a severe knee injury, or for those over 50 years of age. Knee replacement is the last option for patients when they have tried all other treatments and nothing has worked so far for them.

In the surgery, the pain and disability is mitigated by the replacement of the weight-carrying surfaces of the knee joint. In general, metal and plastic components are fitted in the place of the damaged joint surfaces of the knee to regain the motion of the organ.
