What is a Knee Replacement Surgery?
As the name suggests, knee replacement is a surgical procedure that involves reconstruction and replacement of the degenerated knee joints with a prosthesis (metal and plastic parts) to relieve pain and disability.
Knee replacement surgery can be of three types,
- Partial knee replacement: In partial knee replacement, only one side of the knee joint is replaced.
- Total knee replacement: Total knee replacement involves the replacement of both the sides of the knee joint. It is the most common procedure among knee replacement surgeries.
- Bilateral knee replacement: Bilateral knee replacement is considered in rare cases in which both the knees are replaced at the same time.
Why have a knee replacement?
A knee replacement surgery is usually essential when the knee joint gets damaged to the extent that its range of motion is decreased which interrupts the person’s daily life and causes pain even at rest.

One should consider a knee replacement surgery if:
- The person has knee pain constantly
