Osteoarthritis of the knee is not a disease. It’s an age-related normal phenomenon which occurs in every person at the different time period. At present, none of the modalities of treatment have a proven role in the reversal of age-related changes in osteoarthritis. At present in advance, stage knee replacement is the only sure and safe option to get rid of the pain.

If You’ve tried medicines, injections, and physical therapy and Nothing seems to work, it could be the time to consider knee replacement surgery.

Also known as arthroplasty, knee replacement surgery is one of the most common bone surgeries in India. It can help ease the pain caused by severe arthritis.

During surgery, an orthopedic surgeon carves away the damaged part of the knee and replaces it with an artificial joint made of metal or plastic. The artificial joint is then attached to the thigh bone, shin, and kneecap with a special material such as acrylic cement.

Rheumatoid arthritis is when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the lining of the knee which leads to arthritis of knee joint

When?

 

Osteoarthritis is the main reason why people go for knee replacement surgery. The age-related condition is very common and occurs when cartilage — the cushion between the knee and the bone joints — breaks down.
