Total Knee Replacement


(Depending on size)

  • One of the more common surgical procedures, diseased bone and articular surfaces (usually from either trauma and/or degenerative joint disease) are surgically removed.
  • Most knee prostheses are made of a strong metal with a durable plastic overlay to serve as a joint surface.
  • As with any bony prosthesis, these can be either cemented into place or have a roughened surface which allows bone to grow into the surface.
  • All three units (femoral, tibial and patellar) can be inserted together or individually, depending upon the specific needs of the patient.
