Total Knee Replacement

Helps relieve pain and restore function in a severely damaged knee joint.

What Is Total Knee Replacement?

8 out of 10 of us will experience knee pain as we age. Persistent knee pain can greatly impact our life, taking a toll on our quality of life. As healthy knee joints are essential to our everyday activities, including walking, running, standing & sitting, pain in the knee can limit our ability physically to remain active. Suffering from persistent knee pain can have detrimental effect on our overall physical and psychological wellbeing. If the knee joint is severely damaged by either arthritis or trauma, total knee replacement (TKR) surgery can be considered.

Common causes of knee pain include:

  • Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease that causes the breakdown of joint cartilage & adjacent bone in the knees. As a result, the bones will rub against each other and become rough. After some time, it will get so stiff even walking is near impossible.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease-causing chronic inflammation within the joint. This damages the joint and results in pain as well as stiffness over time.
  • Injury to the ligament surrounding the joint can cause instability to the knee and this can bring about premature degeneration of the joint causing post—traumatic arthritis.

Benefit of Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement (TKR) is one of the most common orthopaedic surgeries. It helps relieve pain and restore function in a severely damaged knee joint by replacing it with an artificial implant. Surgeon will assess your knee’s range of movement, stability, and strength before determining the suitable implant for your knee joint.

Having total knee replacement surgery provides numerous advantages as follows:
  • Relieve from your knee pain.
  • The surgery is proven to be effective & safe with high success rate.
  • Significant improvement on your mobility, allowing you to maintain a healthy active lifestyle.
  • A knee replacement will remain to be effective for about 10 and 20 years, and in many cases can last a lifetime.
