What Is Knee Replacement Surgery?

 

Knee replacement  surgery is also called Knee Arthroplasty. It is a type of surgery done to resurface a knee which has been damaged due to  severe arthritis  or severe injury. Metal and plastic parts are used to cap the end of the bones that forms the knee joint along with the knee cap.

 

 

Aim of knee replacement surgery is to:-

  • Reduce the pain
  • Aid in minimizing the discomfort due to painful knees

In recent times, Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement Surgery has replaced the classical surgery thus reducing the hospital stay and other complications. It is a safe surgery with not relatively high complications if performed in the right way..
