Knee Implant

Knee implant surgery also called knee replacement surgery, is really quite common. In fact, last year it is estimated that some 700,000 Americans underwent this highly successful operation to relieve the pain of an arthritic knee joint, replacing it with a metal and plastic knee implant or prosthesis. In this procedure the worn articular cartilage is removed from the ends of the femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin bone) and replaced with a knee joint implant consisting of a metal cap and plate with a hard plastic bearing between them.

Since the original knee replacements were done in the early 1970s great improvements in the surgical technique, the knee implants, pain control and the recovery from total knee replacement rehabilitation have been made. You can read more about these improvements on our website.
