What Is Knee Replacement Surgery?

Knee replacement surgery is an orthopaedic technique in which the surgeon replaces the patient's damaged knee joint with an artificial graft. The knee joint may require knee replacement surgeries due to various reasons, such as:

  • An injury
  • A severe blow to the knee
  • An underlying medical condition like osteoarthritis
  • Indulgent into rigorous physical activities

During the surgery, total knee replacement will take approximately 1 to 2 hours under anaesthesia. The surgeon makes an incision on the knee to expose the affected joint, which is then removed and replaced with a plastic, ceramic, or metallic graft. Highly specialized experts create the graft to suit the needs of the patient.
