ALL ABOUT KNEE REPLACEMENT SURGERY
Knee replacement surgery (also called knee arthroplasty) relieves pain caused by osteoarthritis.
When having this disease, you may have difficulty sleeping at night because of severe knee pain. Also, you could have trouble doing small tasks, such as walking, kneeling, or going up and down the stairs. In these cases, knee arthroplasty can help restore lost mobility, correct knee distortion, and improve your quality of life.
And even though knee replacement surgery is considered a major procedure, its success rate is very high. Usually, most patients do not need help to walk after the rehabilitation period.
WHAT IS KNEE REPLACEMENT SURGERY?
Knee replacement surgery involves replacing a normal knee joint with an artificial joint.
The knee joint can be replaced entirely or partially according to your particular case, each with its benefits and disadvantages.
