Whom Should we Recommended for a Knee Replacement Surgery?

The most common reason for considering a knee replacement surgery is severe osteoarthritis of the knees. Patients whose knee joints are damaged by trauma or other joint destructive diseases are also recommended for knee replacement.

What can cause pain on my knee?

As we all know that human age increases and the age of our bones get decreases. That is the major issue all the aged people are having knee pain issues. In today's generation, Knee pain is becoming the major issue. But it has been observed that knee problems and injuries are most often occur during sports activities, recreational activities or work-related task, and home projects.

4 Main Types of Knee Replacement Surgery
  1. Total knee replacement
    This is the most common form. Your surgeon replaces the surfaces of the thigh bone and shin bone that connects to the knee.

  2. Partial knee replacement.
    If arthritis affects only one side of your knee, this surgery may be a possibility. However, it’s only right for you if you have strong knee ligaments. Partial knee replacement can be performed through a smaller cut than is needed for total knee replacement.

  3. Kneecap replacement.
    This replaces only the under-surface of the kneecap, but some surgeons advise against this procedure, because total knee replacement surgery has a higher rate of success.

  4. Complex (or revision) knee replacement.
    This procedure may be needed if you have very severe arthritis or if you’ve already had two or three knee replacement surgeries.

Total Knee Replacement and Best Orthopaedic Surgeon Keys to Recovery

One of the areas we discussed was some of the keys to recovery after having undergone total knee replacement surgery.

Partial Knee Replacement VS Total Knee Replacement
  • Partial Knee Replacement A partial knee replacement is designed to treat a localized area of knee arthritis, preserving less worn ligaments and bone. Usually, the medical, or inner, joint between tibia and femur is resurfaced.
  • Total Knee Replacement In a total knee replacement, all surfaces of the joint are resurfaced (patellofemoral, medical and lateral tibiofemoral). This option has stood the test of time to offer long-term pain relief and functional improvements. The key to successful outcomes with partial knee replacement is patient selection. If strict inclusion criteria are used, partial knee replacement can offer near normal function with excellent durability. Discussion with your surgeon as to which option is best for you is important. Dr. Simon Coffey provides a range of orthopaedic care, treating patients with acute and chronic hip, knee, ankle and sports related injuries.
