Myths and Facts on Total Knee Replacement (TKR)
Any invasive procedure to any part of the body is
a concern to every patient. Everybody has
apprehensions about many things about any kind of
surgery even if it is a very minor surgery.
People would rather take medicines than go for
surgery. But some conditions can only be
rectified by surgery. As far the knee goes, it
goes through a lot of wear and tear and is prone
to a lot of injuries both due to age-related
issues like in elderly people and excessive use
issues like with a sportsperson. These injuries,
whatever the reason, may need surgery and some
may heal on their own with rest and medication.
