Total Knee Replacement surgery should be called as Knee-Resurfacing or Knee-Capping surgery, as the whole joint is not replaced in it, only the edges of the bones are being provided with the metal caps or shields so that they can take the load-off the bones!
Causes of Knee Replacement Surgery/ Arthroplasty
Pain while Walking
Deformity (Abnormal acquired positioning of the joints)
Instability (Joint feels like ‘Giving-way’)
Pain While climbing stairs
Excessive degradation of the bones & the whole Joint
Inability to perform daily actions
Severe Knee Fractures/Injury
Any Condition causing Knee Disability, knee-swelling and stiffness of the joint
How the Procedure is performed?
The Procedure requires a lot of technique and attention.
The Incision is made on the skin and the bone is exposed, the patella (Kneecap) is then rotated and flipped to the other side to ensure a good and proper view of the joint.
The damaged surface of the thigh bone named as femur is sliced off for the proper fixation of the metal cap/lid on it.
The damaged cartilages are also removed to ensure proper functioning.
Then the upper end of the leg bone named as tibia is shaved off as well and the cap is fixed on it and then we move the joint to see that it is working and the knee can move and function properly.
The kneecap (Patella) is also provided with the Patellar button (Polyethylene Lid) if required and a plastic spacer/tray is applied between the upper and the lower bone, that is femur and tibia respectively.
After being sure, that the metal shields are in proper harmony with each other, we fix them with the help of the bone cement and the knee is again tested for proper mobility after which the flaps are closed and stitches or staples are applied.
You will be able to stand on the next day and then walk soon after the surgery.
