What is knee replacement surgery?

Knee replacement or knee arthroplasty is a surgical procedure where the surface of the bones are replaced. This is more aptly known as knee resurfacing surgery. This surgical procedure is done to help relieve pain and restore function in severely diseased knee joints. The procedure involves cutting away the damaged bone and cartilage and replacing the same with an artificial joint (prosthesis) which are either made of metal alloys or high-grade plastics and polymers.

Why is knee replacement surgery done?

The most common cause of chronic knee pain is severe pain caused by osteoarthritis. Knee replacement surgery is usually done when patients have problems in walking, climbing stairs and doing their daily tasks. Basically it impairs their daily movement, mobility and hampers quality of life.

Although there are many types of arthritis, most knee pain is caused by just three types:

  • osteoarthritis
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • post-traumatic arthritis

How does one prepare for recovery post knee replacement surgery?

Patients are taken to the recovery room for couple of hours post surgery. The duration of stay post surgery depends on individual medical condition. Most surgeons do encourage mobility especially of the foot and ankle so as to increase blood flow to your leg muscles which helps prevent swelling and blood clots.

Physical rehabilitation starts early where a physio therapist will guide the patient to perform specific exercises so as to begin the strengthening of leg muscles and restore knee movement. This allows walking and other normal daily activities soon after the surgery.
