Knee replacement, also known as knee arthroplasty is a surgery done on the knee to replace the knee joint surfaces that bear weight. This is a procedure done to cure serious knee pain or a disability. Knee replacement is commonly done on patients suffering from osteoarthritis and is also done on patients suffering from diseases such as psoriatic arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Patients can be subjected to either total or partial knee replacement surgery depending on their conditions. The damaged or diseased part of the knee is replaced with plastic and metal components shaped in a way that allows motion of the knee.
Knee arthritis is one of the main reasons other than accidents that cause your knee joints to deteriorate and become weak enough not to be able to bear your weight. Under these circumstances, knee replacement is the only option. The most obvious sign of knee arthritis is the pain in the knee.
