The replacement of knee that is also known as arthroplasty, could be called with greater precision “put new surface to the knee “. Is a surgical procedure that can help relieve pain and return the function in the articulation of a severely damaged knee .
The goal of a knee replacement is to repair the parts of the knee joint that have been damaged and relieve the pain that other treatments can’t.
The metal and plastic parts are used to cover the end of the bones that makes the knee joint along with the kneecap. The procedure consist in cutting the damaged bone and cartilage of your femur, shin and kneecap and replacing it with an artificial joint (prosthesis) made of metal alloys, high quality plastics and polymers.
