About Total Knee Replacement Surgery
When your knee is healthy, it can bend and flex easily. The cartilage between the bones absorbs stress and allows the bones to move freely over each other. Your knee, when unhealthy, can cause you pain and stiffness resulting in limitations to your daily activities. An unhealthy knee is due to inflammation, injury, or simply a long lifetime of use, leading to increased friction and stiffness. Often, the damaged cartilage may allow the knee and leg bones to rub against each other, causing significant pain and often times swelling of the knee joint.
Total knee replacement is the removal of damaged cartilage and bone replaced by a new implant. It can be highly effective in relieving pain, restoring function and letting you return to your daily activities The implant creates a new, properly functioning joint that prevents painful bone-on-bone contact.
The right combination of orthopedic surgeon, implant, and technique can help you get back to the life and activities you love. Click here to find out how OMNI products are designed to help.
