Total knee replacement
The knee is a hinge joint. It is a very important joint as it allows a great deal of movement but is also weight-bearing. As a result of this, it is often prone to wearing away. This is a simplified reason as to why arthritis occurs.
Arthritis can be a very painful disorder which may slow down your mobility, walking or even stop you from sleeping.
A knee replacement is a surgical procedure, in which the injured or damaged surfaces of the knee are replaced with artificial parts which are secured to the bone.
