Knee replacement surgery is a procedure that involves cutting away damaged bone and cartilage from the thighbone, shinbone, and knee cap and then replacing it with an artificial joint. The major reason for knee replacement surgery is to relieve pain caused by osteoarthritis. Knee replacements can easily last more than 15 years, it provide pain relief and improves mobility.

Steps for a Knee Replacement Procedure:

  • Prepare the Bone: The cartilage surfaces at the ends of the femur and tibia that are damaged are removed with a small amount of underlying bone.
  • Position the metal implants: The metal component replaces the removed cartilage and bone and recreates the surface of the joint.  
  • Resurface the patella: The patella's undersurface is cut and resurfaced with a plastic button. The resurfacing of the patella depends upon the case.
  • Insertion of Plastic Spacer: For creating a smooth gliding surface, a medical-grade plastic spacer is inserted between the metal components.

When Knee Replacement Surgery is Recommended?

There are many reasons why doctors recommend knee replacement surgery:

  • When you experience severe knee pain that limits your daily activities.
  • When you feel chronic knee inflammation and swelling.
  • When you feel severe knee pain while resting.
  • A bowed knee deformity

Surgeons and Hospitals




The spine gives your body stability and strength and that's why it is essential to keep your spine protected. Spine surgeries are usually performed to correct the spinal pathologies that cause pain. Generally, spinal pain is caused by the nerve compression within it. 

There are different types of spine surgeries:

  • Lumbar Laminectomy
  • Spinal Fusion Surgery
  • Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
  • Herniated Disc Surgery
  • Cervical Spine Surgery

When You Need Spine Surgery?

  • If you experience lower back pain or neck pain that is not resolving after some time.
  • When you feel pain or numbness are going down in one or both legs.
  • If you have degenerative spine problems such as stenosis, that causes pain.
  • If you have a spinal infection or tumor.
  • If you have a skipped disc that doesn't correct itself.

Physical therapy and home exercises can also treat spine problems without any surgery but if the problem still exists and patients don't get any relief, then surgery is the best decision.
