What Is Knee Replacement?

The word “replacement” gives the impression that your surgeon is removing the entire knee.

However, your surgeon will only resurface the damaged bone and cartilage of your joint. During surgery, the joint is exposed by an incision made down the center or off to the side of the knee.

Total Knee Replacement Procedure

A total knee replacement procedure removes the damaged portion of the femur (or thigh bone), the tibia (or shin bone), and the patella (or knee cap), replacing them with metal and/or plastic components that will replicate the knee’s natural movement and function.
