What is Knee Replacement?
Arthritis leads to the weight bearing surfaces of the knee joint wearing away. They are no longer smooth and free running and this leads to stiffness and pain. Eventually the joint wears out to such an extent that the bone of the femur grinds on the bone of the tibia. A total knee replacement is de-signed to replace the worn joint surfaces on one side of the joint, thereby relieving pain and improving function.
