What is Knee Replacement?

Knee replacement surgery is a special surface coating process of a damaged or worn knee joint consisting of alloy metals and plastic implants. The purpose of this surgery is for people with knee joint disorders. The knee replacement replaces the damaged part of the knee joint and aims to allow the patient to move their legs comfortably.

This surgery is applied to patients with joint wear. There are certain reasons for knee replacement surgery. These include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and trauma, i.e., severe injury to the knee, wear, or knee joint tumors. This surgery, which has been applied in the medical field for a long time, is also a procedure with an extremely high success rate in Turkey.

Knee Replacement Methods

Knee replacement surgery is divided into two. These are:

  • Total Knee Replacement: Total knee replacement is the name given to the process of replacing all parts of the knee joint. All surfaces of the knee joint are covered with plastic and metal prostheses.
  •  Partial Knee Replacement: Partial knee replacement replaces part of the damaged knee joint, not all of it. Only the damaged part is removed and replaced with a metal and plastic prosthesis.

For a fast recovery process, all medications given to the patient should be used, and if there is a physiotherapy process after the surgery, the patient should follow this process and listen to the doctor's instructions.

As a result of the tests to be performed during the examination, it is understood whether the person is suitable for this surgery. However, people who experience severe knee pain, and people who do not have any health problems may be suitable for this surgery.

Like every surgery, knee replacement surgery has risks. The important thing is whether the instructions are followed. The patient should be treated in a hygienic hospital environment. She/he should not smoke, take alcohol, medication, etc.
