The Knee is the strongest and largest joint in a human body. A knee with injuries, arthritis or wear and tear problems may cause severe pain and inability of motion. Total Knee Replacement and Muscle Sparing Surgery are suitable solutions for it.
Total Knee Replacement is a surgical procedure used to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint with artificial joints. During the procedure, the surgeon removes the damaged cartilage and replaces it with an implant called prosthesis. A plastic spacer is attached to the prosthesis to generate a cushioning effect much like the original cartilage in your knee.
Computer Assisted Knee Replacement is carried out with the help of computer technology for greater accuracy and precision. In this technology, special tracking devices are attached to the bones which generate 3D images of the knee joint on the computer screen. The image helps the surgeon make decisions about the orientation, position and size of the knee for modifications and adjustments.
