Knee replacement surgery also known as knee arthroplasty — can help relieve pain and restore function in severely diseased knee joints. The most common reason for knee replacement surgery is to repair joint damage caused by osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. People who need knee replacement surgery usually have problems walking, climbing stairs, and getting in and out of chairs.
They may also experience moderate or severe knee pain at rest. Damaged bone and cartilage from the thighbone, shinbone and kneecap are replaced with an artificial joint made of metal alloys or high-grade plastics and polymers.
