Knee Joint Replacement Surgery
Knee replacement surgery includes replacing of some or all the parts of a knee joint with artificial implants, to repair the injured surfaces of the knees. This helps in appeasing the pain that is being caused by the damaged surfaces.
In total knee replacement, all the injured or damaged components of the knee joint are replaced with artificial components. This surgical procedure is generally performed on those people who undergo severe arthritic problems. This is an extremely effective surgical procedure. However, it is not the only surgical treatment that is available to treat knee osteoarthritis. One can also go for partial knee replacement.
Partial knee replacement is a viable alternative for those who search for a more conservative option to total knee replacement. In this, just one or two compartments of the knee are replaced. This is usually done when osteoarthritis does not exist in all the three compartments.
Under this procedure, the patient has to experience smaller incisions & undergoes less bleeding than the total knee replacement surgery. Also, the recovery in this surgery is quicker and the bone loss is quite less as compared to the total knee joint replacement surgery.
