Knee Replacement Surgery
Knee replacement surgery is a very common procedure with a rapidly aging population of patients with knee arthritis.
The movement of the knee joint is in fact a very complicated sequence of movements of hinge, slide and rotation and it has in the past proven difficult to find a good mechanical means to replace this
In general, the reasons to undergo a knee replacement operation are: pain and loss of function which significantly interferes with the enjoyment of life, and failure of non-operative methods such as medication and different forms of therapy.
While choosing an experienced orthopaedic surgeon goes a long way in getting the best results from a knee replacement, there are always some associated medical risks of surgery that have to be considered.
Thankfully medical technology has made significant progress in recent years with multiple new solutions available to avoid most cases of knee surgery.
