In total knee replacement surgery, the parts of the bones that rub together are resurfaced
with metal and plastic implants. Using special, precision instruments, your surgeon will
typically remove the damaged surfaces of all three bones. The replacement surfaces will
then be fixed into place.
The surface of the femur is replaced with a rounded metal component that comes very close
to matching the curve of your natural bone. The surface of the tibia is replaced with a smooth
plastic component. The flat metal component holds a smooth plastic piece made of ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyethylene plastic that serves as the cartilage. The undersurface of
the knee-cap may also be replaced with an implant made of the same polyethylene plastic.
If you have difficulty walking a few blocks and/or have to use a cane or walker, have difficulty
in performing everyday activities such as getting dressed, sleeping. Moderate or severe knee
pain while resting, either day or night, it may be time to consider knee replacement surgery.
