Title: PPT on Total knee Replacement Surgery

Total Knee Replacement Surgery
  • A total knee replacement is a surgical procedure
    whereby the diseased knee joint is replaced with
    artificial material.
  • The knee is a hinge joint which provides motion
    at the point where the thigh meets the lower leg.
    The thighbone abuts the large bone of the lower
    leg at the knee joint.
  • During a total knee replacement, the end of the
    femur bone is removed and replaced with a metal

  • The end of the lower leg bone is also removed and
    replaced with a channeled plastic piece with a
    metal stem.
  • Depending on the condition of the kneecap portion
    of the knee joint, a plastic button may also be
    added under the kneecap surface.
  • The artificial components of a total knee
    replacement are referred to as the prosthesis.

Benefits of Total knee Replacement Surgery
  • The replacement knee is designed only for usual
    day-to-day activity. You should be able to resume
    a more normal life. The pain in your knee,
    walking distance and mobility should have
    improved. You will not be able to participate in
    all sports or heavy activities. As well as
    improved walking you may be able to cycle and
  • It is normal after a knee replacement to
    permanently have a numb patch around the scar
    over the front of the knee.

  • The amount of bend in the knee varies principally
    depending on how much stiffness there was prior
    to operation. Most patients can bend their knee
    from straight to 110º.
  • Although possible, it is unlikely that you will
    be able to kneel on your knee replacement
    comfortably after the operation as this generally
    causes discomfort.
  • Most patients feel that the knee replacement does
    not move or feel like a normal knee.
    Additionally, they occasionally feel a clunk as
    the knee moves, particularly on stairs.

Recovery at home
  • Rearrange furniture so you can maneuver with a
    cane, walker, or crutches. You may temporarily
    change rooms to avoid using the stairs.
  • Get a good chairone that is firm with a
    higher-than-average seat and has a footstool for
    intermittent leg elevation.

  • Install a shower chair, gripping bar, and raised
    toilet seat in the bathroom.
  • Use assistive devices such as a long-handled
    shoehorn, a long-handled sponge, and a grabbing
    tool or reacher to avoid bending over too far.
