Total knee arthroplasty – also known as total knee replacement – is a method of treating knee pain.
A total knee arthroplasty is a surgical procedure in which parts of your ailing knee joint are replaced with artificial parts, also known as prostheses. The surgeon’s objective with total knee arthroplasty is to provide you with a new, durable, well-functioning joint.
Total knee replacement may increase your mobility and your decrease pain if you commonly suffer from knee injuries or if you have an injured or arthritic knee joint. More than 90 percent of patients who undergo knee replacement surgery report that they experience less pain and greater mobility in their knee after the procedure.
This type of surgery is one of the most successful and frequently performed procedures by orthopedic surgeons. As with many joint arthroplasties, this procedure has evolved into a successful outpatient surgery.
