About the Treatment
Joint Replacement Surgery or Arthroplasty is the removal of damaged joints and their replacement by artificial joints, made of chromium, cobalt and titanium, along with high-density plastics.
The ends of the knee joint are lined with metal components, and a medical-grade plastic implant is used to create the new cushion. It is the patient's own muscles and ligaments that provide strength and stability to their new knee.
This type of surgery is required when a person has a high degree of alteration of the function and shape of the knee by a chronic and progressive joint disease (called Gonarthrosis) or by fractures, which are characterized by intense pain, stiffness and deformity of the joint, limitation of movement and instability.
Numerous advances in surgical techniques, instrument development, surgical robot and implants have made knee joint replacement highly successful procedures. After surgery, patients return to a much more active life since the prosthesis eliminates pain and improves mobility.
