Total knee replacement, or knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to resurface a knee damaged by arthritis. During the procedure, the surgeon cuts away damaged bone and cartilage from the thighbone, shinbone and kneecap and replaces it with an artificial joint (prosthesis) made of metal alloys, high-grade plastics and polymers. The surgery can help relieve pain and restore function in severely diseased knee joints.
Physician order required.
