    Treatment description

    What is a knee replacement surgery?

    During this procedure the articular elements are replaced with metal and plastic implants. The end part of the femur and the closest part of the tibia are removed and the bone is replaced by metal parts in the femur and metal-plastic in the case of the tibia.

    In addition, the kneecap can be grinded. Surgery is performed to relieve pain, which is usually caused by wearing out and abrasion of cartilage of the knee. The treatment can also increase the range of motion in the joint.

    The two types of knee replacement surgery

    • Partial knee replacement – This procedure refers to the replacement knee of only the used part of the knee.
    • Total knee replacement – Total knee replacement involves replacing injured or damaged parts of the joint with artificial elements. Your new knee joint will consist of a metal element mounted to the distal end of the femur, metal and plastic spacers embedded in the tibia, and if necessary a plastic overlay on the kneecap.

    What does surgery look like?

    Surgery is performed with a straight cut with a length of 10-23cm on the front surface of the knee. The stitches or staples should be absorbed, but if not they should be removed 14 days after surgery.
