Knee Replacement Surgery
In a rapidly aging population, the number of patients with knee arthritis is steadily increasing, which explains why knee replacement surgery is a very common procedure nowadays. The movement of the knee joint is a complicated sequence of movements involving the hinge, slide and rotation. In the past, it had been quite difficult to find a good mechanical means of replacing this.
Quite generally, the reasons to undergo a knee replacement surgery are as follows:
- Pain and loss of function in the knee that significantly interferes with functional living
- Failure of non-operative methods such as medication and different forms of therapy
Surgery if often recommended as a last resort, when non-invasive treatments like therapy or medication do not seem to work for the patient. You can get in touch with a doctor through our clinic in Singapore if you require knee replacement surgery or to learn more about the cost involved.
