What is the knee?
The knee is the largest joint in your body and one of the most complex. It is comprised of the lower leg bone (the tibia), the thigh bone (the femur) and the knee cap (the patella), as well as multiple tendons, muscles, ligaments and cartilage that connect at the knee.
It is responsible for supporting most of your body weight, making it susceptible to various types of damage and injury.
If you have a painful condition to the knee that does not respond well to conservative treatment, there are various surgical options available to you, depending on your knee injury.
Depending on the severity of arthritis of the knee, a partial or total knee replacement can be performed. If only a compartment of the knee is arthritic, the doctors will use implant pieces to only replace that compartment. If the entire joint is in need of replacement, doctors will use a metal and plastic knee replacement implant to restore the nature of the knee.
