Total Knee Replacement is actually a misnomer. It should be called- Total Knee Re-surfacing. In this surgery, patients whole knee joint is not cut and replaced by a new joint but the worn out surface of native knee are refreshed and covered with artificial metal and plastic which serves a knee joint. The ligaments on the sides of the knee called as collaterals is retained as it is. Surfaces at the distal end of the thigh bone called femur and the upper end of shin bone is resurfaced and replaced by metal implant. Natural disc ( menisci) is replaced by a highly crosslinked Polyethene( medical grade).
The undersurface of the knee cap bone called patella is routinely replaced by a polyethlene button. Recovery is pretty quick. Patient can walk the next day in most cases. Knee bending and exercises can be started the next day and climbing up and down the stairs can be started as per patient comfort. Usually on 4th day the patient can be discharged. Physical exercise and few essential medications ( for a short time) is important for achieving good results.
