Knee Replacement Surgery
Knee Replacement Surgery
Our Knee is the largest and most complex joint that’s an amalgamation of three bones; the Femur(thighbone), the Tibia (Shinbone) and the Patella (Knee cap). The ends of these three bones are covered with articular cartilage, which is a smooth substance. This allows for smooth movement of the bone within the joint. A healthy Knee is extremely essential to perform the utmost of our routine activities.
In a healthy Knee, all of these bones work in harmony. Still, a complaint or an injury can disrupt this smooth functioning, thereby causing discomfort due to pain, weakness and reduced function. One of the most common causes of habitual knee pain is Arthritis. Due to an arthritic knee, the articular cartilage wears out, leading to the bones rubbing against each other and wearing out.
This is when your surgeon might recommend a Knee Replacement Surgery to help you get back to walking comfortably and this is where Prakriya Hospital has won the hearts of many patients as one the go-to hospital for Knee Surgery in Bangalore.
