HIP / KNEE REPLACEMENT SURGERIES
Hip / Knee Replacement Surgeries
During a total Knee Replacement surgery, the surgeon removes some bone and cartilage from the areas of your thigh bone and shin bone, where they meet at your knee joint. Your knee doctor then replaces the knee area of your thigh bone with a metal implant and the knee area of your shinbone with a plastic implant. Knee replacement also known as Arthroplasty.
