Track: Total knee replacement

Total knee replacement


Total knee replacement (TKR), also referred to as total knee arthroplasty (TKA), is a surgical intervention designed to replace damaged knee joints with artificial implants. During the procedure, surgeons eliminate damaged cartilage and bone from the knee joint and substitute them with metal and plastic components. TKR is typically recommended for severe arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other conditions resulting in chronic knee pain and stiffness. Rehabilitation involves undergoing physical therapy to regain knee function and strength. Most patients can return to their normal activities within weeks to months post-surgery. TKR is widely recognized as a highly successful procedure, offering substantial pain relief and enhancing the quality of life for individuals undergoing it.
