Knee Replacement

Knee replacement is a surgery where damaged knee is replaced with a plastic or metal implant. The main cause of knee damage is arthritis of prolonged duration.

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. An incision of about 10 inches is made on the knee and the damaged part is replaced with an implant after preparing the adjacent bone to receive it.

Pain medicines are prescribed after the surgery. Physical therapy and certain precautions are advised. Therapy is very important as the chances of incorrect implant fusion to the bones exist.

Certain activities are to be avoided during the recovery period, which is about two months, after which patients can resume normal activities including running and jumping.
