Knee Replacement Surgery

Knee replacement Surgery (arthroplasty) involves replacing a damaged, worn or diseased knee with an artificial joint.

There are two main types:

Total Knee Replacement - where both sides of the knee joint are replaced.

Partial Knee Replacement - where only one side of your joint is replaced in a smaller operation, with a shorter hospital stay and recovery period. It is a routine operation that reduces knee pain most commonly caused by arthritis.
