An Introduction To Knee Replacement Surgery

If the knee is severely damaged by an injury or a disease, daily activities look like a bother. You also experience pain and other uncomfortable symptoms in this case.

Preparing joints – This part of surgery includes removing damaged cartilage and the tip of the bone from the tibia and fibula along with healthy bone margins.

Placement of implants – Metal implants are then used by attaching them to the bone surface of the joint. This can be achieved by attaching a metal implant in place or using a 'press-fit' implant.

The doctor/surgeon will tell you about the possible risks and complications that may be seen in rare cases after knee surgery. Although every precaution is taken to ensure that the patient does not face the risks associated with major surgical procedures (such as infection, blood clots, bleeding, etc.) after knee surgery.
