What is Knee Replacement?
Knee replacement Surgery is a very effective surgical method that reduces your extremely unbearable knee pain and discomfort dramatically. This procedure is especially used for treating patients suffering from osteoarthritis. In this surgical method, your damaged knee joints will be removed and accurately replaced with mechanical implants for the ultimate results.
Doctors usually only recommend knee replacement after other, less invasive treatments have failed. First-line treatment options include:
- weight loss
- physical therapy
- assistive devices, such as a cane or a knee brace

Aging and Knee replacement
Knee surgery is a typical treatment for people over the age of 55. Younger people who have their knees replaced may outlive their artificial knees and may need a revision.
Specific Goals of Joint Knee Replacement
The goal of knee replacement is to relieve pain, improve quality of life, and maintain or improve knee function.
Why Would I Need Knee Surgery?
Osteoarthritis is the main reason why people go for knee replacement surgery. The age-related condition is very common and occurs when cartilage “the cushion between the knee and the bone joints” breaks down.
Other reasons include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis is when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the lining of the knee.
- People with bowed legs or “knock-knees” often get surgery to restore the position of the knee.
- A broken bone or torn ligaments around the knee sometimes will result in arthritis that causes great pain and limits your movement.
- Doctors will recommend surgery if blood stops flowing to the bones (a condition called either osteonecrosis or avascular necrosis).
Joint Knee Replacement Surgery Types
Total knee replacement
This is the most common form. Your surgeon replaces the surfaces of the thigh bone and shin bone that connects to the knee.
Partial knee replacement
If arthritis affects only one side of your knee, this surgery may be a possibility. However, it’s only right for you if you have strong knee ligaments. Partial knee replacement can be performed through a smaller cut than is needed for total knee replacement.
This replaces only the under-surface of the kneecap, but some surgeons advise against this procedure, because total knee replacement surgery has a higher rate of success.
Complex (or revision) knee replacement
This procedure may be needed if you have very severe arthritis or if you’ve already had two or three knee replacement surgeries.
