Knee Arthroplasty
A surgery is definitely painful. A surgery on the
knee is even more difficult. Going through the
entire process would really make you direful and
less energetic. But, understanding the
importance of surgery is as important as knowing
about the process behind the orthopedic surgery.
So, here you are at the right place to know
about the knee Arthroplasty in orthopedic surgery.

What is Orthopedic Surgery?
This is a surgery involved with the musco
skeletal system in the body. The ability to move
your muscles, bones and your body is presented to
you by this system. So, any trauma or damage to
any part of this system should be treated
immediately as it may lead to unimaginable
circumstances. For treating these traumas, the
surgery which is done is called as orthopedic
surgery. The majority of the problems faced are
sports injuries, tumors, infections, spine
diseases and few other congenital disorders. With
this being said, let us look at the most common
treatment procedures done by surgeons and experts
in this field to treat this.

Most Common Treatment Procedure Involved
  • There are many ways involved in this. However,
    the main three most common procedures involved in
    this treatment are
  • Meniscectomy this procedure removes the
    meniscus part of the join in the muscoskeletal
    system.
  • Another fact about this procedure is that it is
    specially done at the time of knee surgery or
    cases relating to knee injury.
  • Arthroscopy this was implemented to perform
    surgery of cartilage and the restoration of torn
    tissues.
  • Arthroplasty the system of osteotomy is
    followed in this type of surgery where the
    articular surface of the joint is aligned.
  • This is especially for the damage caused by the
    arthritis and done to give function to the join
    after damage.

Knee Arthroplasty in Orthopedic Surgery
This is also called knee joint replacement where
agonizing pain is experienced in the knee joints.
Such pain may be noticed at a point where you
would be doing activities involving high pressure
on the knee joints and parts. This may be due
to the severe effect of arthritis affecting your
muscular regions. Sometimes, this surgery is also
performed on the need of correcting various
deformity and mild valgus. It is also notable
that certain physical therapies may help in
reducing the pain and delay the need for having a
knee replacement surgery.

Knee Joint Replacement
  • Knee Joint Replacement is a surgical procedure
    where the damaged knee of the patient is replaced
    by the artificial one (prosthesis) made of
    plastic or metal components by the surgeon. When
    the patient has been suffering for long due to
    have severe knee pain and is unable to walk or
    jog. He is feeling stiffness in his knee and not
    able to even climb up the stairs.
  • He needs medical assistance instantly. The
    doctors preferable suggest some medication and
    necessary vaccinations to provide instant relief
    to the patient but when all the prescribed
    treatments are unable to help the patient in his
    knee pain. The only option remains with the
    doctor is to undergo knee replacement surgery for
    the patient. However, the age and health
    condition of the patient is examined before
    proceeding knee replacement surgery.

So, the process involved in knee Arthroplasty
would be
Excessive hair at the surgical area is removed
and the anesthesiologist makes keen observations
on your heart rates, blood pressure and oxygen
levels. It is obvious that you would be given
anesthesia before the operation and made to lie
down on the operating table. Antiseptic solution
is applied on the area where surgery is yet to be
done and the chief doctor makes the incision. As
the incision is made, the doctor removes the
damaged part and the knee joint is resurfaced
with prosthesis. This is mostly made of metal,
plastic and the common type of prosthesis, which
is recommended by most doctors and surgeons,
would be a cemented one.

Crucial Part
After this, the slit in the body would be closed
with stitches and required procedures like
placing safe drains for the fluids to fall and
dressing of wounds is done. The crucial part
after this would be the stay at hospital for a
few days where you kept under observation and
taken for regular walks until you are perfectly
set on walking and moving with the prosthesis.
Therefore, this is all about the total knee
replacement or knee Arthroplasty under the
orthopedic surgery.
