Total knee Replacement Surgery

Slide 2

What is total knee replacement Knee Replacement Surgery also known as Knee Arthroplasty is a process to replace the weight bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve the pain. Knee replacement surgery can be performed for other knee diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. Knee Replacement Surgery has been proven to help individuals return back to normal life and can do challenging activities like golf, bicycling, and swimming. Total knees are not designed for jogging, or sports like tennis and skiing (although there certainly are people with total knee replacements that participate in such sports).

Slide 3

When should anyone have Knee Replacement Surgery? A person would be considered a candidate for knee replacement surgery if there is: Daily pain The pain is severe enough to restrict work, recreation and ordinary activities of daily living Significant stiffness in the knee Significant instability (constant giving way) of the knee Significant deformity (knock-knees or bow-legs) that hinders normal function of the knee Damage from arthritic conditions, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or post-traumatic arthritis When should anyone have Knee Replacement Surgery?

Total Knee Replacement Surgery Total knee replacement surgery removes all weight bearing, damaged knee cartilage and bone and replaces it with a man made metal or plastic joint that tries to replicate the knee function. In total knee replacement surgery, a highly polished strong metal alloy replaces the femur portion of the knee joint a strong durable polymer tray replaces the tibia portion of the joint, and more plastic replaces the kneecap or patella. Total Knee Replacement Surgery usually takes 1.5 to 3 hours. The total knee replacement surgery can help to relieve the pain and restore the function in severely diseased knee joints.

Slide 6

Reasons that benefit from total knee replacement surgery commonly includes: Severe knee pain that limits your everyday activities, including walking, climbing stairs, and getting in and out of chairs. Anyone may find it hard to walk more than a few blocks without significant pain and may need to use a walker. Moderate or severe knee pain while resting, either day or night Chronic knee inflammation and swelling that does not improve with rest or medications Knee Disease: a bowing in or out of your knee Knee stiffness: inability to bend and straighten your knee Inability to tolerate or complications from pain medications Reasons that benefit from total knee replacement surgery commonly includes:

Slide 7

Partial Knee Replacement Partial knee replacement Surgery, or uni compartmental knee replacement Surgery, is the choice if only one part of the knee is severely damaged and requires replacement rather than the entire joint. An implant for either the femur portion, tibia portion or patella portion is surgically inserted through a smaller incision. If two or more sections of the knee are damaged, the partial knee replacement surgery may not be the best treatment choice. Hospital stays are generally shorter perhaps even overnight. Although not as common as total knee replacement surgery, the partial or unicompartmental knee replacement surgery is a viable alternative in limited situations. The designs of the Partial types of knee replacements have improved over the years. The Partial knee replacement surgery also has smaller, less invasive incisions. Partial Knee Replacement

Slide 8

Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement Newer minimally invasive knee replacement surgery uses specific surgical techniques that allow a 3 to 5 inch incision rather than the standard 8 to 12 inch incision. The smaller incision provides for recovery with potentially less scar tissue formation, less pain, and a faster healing period. Hospital stays are from one to three days. A recent advance in the performance of total knee replacement surgery is the use of minimally invasive surgical approaches. Minimally invasive knee replacement surgery technique is more challenging than standard total knee replacement. The incisions are approximately half the size of those used in a standard approach. The smaller incisions and new techniques to expose the joint may result in short-term advantages such as a quicker rehabilitation, less pain, and a shorter hospitalization, according to some reports.

Slide 9

Foot and ankle movement also is repeated after the surgery to increase blood flow in leg muscles to help prevent leg swelling and blood clots. Most patients begin exercising their knee the day after surgery. A physical therapist will teach you specific exercises to strengthen your leg and restore knee movement to allow walking and other normal daily activities soon after your surgery.

Slide 10

Revision Knee Replacement Surgery Revision knee replacement Surgery is for removing and replacing a prosthetic knee joint that is worn out. Revision knee replacement surgery can be repeated multiple times, but scar tissue formation from previous knee surgeries can make the procedure increasingly difficult with each replacement event.

Slide 11

Computer Assisted Surgery Knee replacement using computer assisted surgery, or CAS, is a computer-driven technology that uses computer guided imagery during surgery. The computer treats the alignment of the knee components during the surgical procedure and renders the alignment more accurate. The high level of accuracy may increase the longevity of the total knee replacement. Computer Assisted Surgery

Slide 12

Bilateral Knee Replacement For the patients who have both knees equally affected by cartilage damage and decreased mobility, bilateral knee replacement surgery is an option. Both knees undergo any of the above mentioned knee replacement type surgeries at the same time. How successful is the Knee Replacement Surgery? Knee replacement surgery is recognized as a miracle of modern surgery. Most orthopedic Surgeons consider replacement surgery to be the best method of handling arthritis in the knee. Knee replacements have literally put hundreds and thousands of humans back on their feet and allowed them to enjoy their golden years. Bilateral Knee Replacement

Slide 13

What are the benefits of Knee Replacement Surgery? Pain Relief When arthritic joint surfaces are re - surfaced just like in the case of a knee replacement implants made of a combination of metal and high density plastic are fixed onto the prepared surfaces. Since the original, arthritis - laden joint surfaces have been removed and replaced with metallic and plastic materials the original joint pain caused by the exposed bone, no longer exists. This gives the patient a considerable reduction or even elimination of pain. What are the benefits of Knee Replacement Surgery?

Slide 14

benefits of Knee Replacement Surgery Improved Mobility When the joint anatomy is rough and irregular secondary to advanced arthritis, the ability of the joint to move smoothly is limited. Frequently, overall range of motion can be severely limited due to joint surface irregularity as well as the presence of excessive fluid production. Total knee replacement can largely restore range of motion. benefits of Knee Replacement Surgery

Slide 15

benefits of Knee Replacement Surgery Improved quality of life When a person is no longer burdened by chronic, pain and joint motion has been vastly improved, the quality of life is improved as well. Most patients visiting a surgeon's office for consideration of a knee joint replacement have endured long standing pain and functional impairment. A successful joint replacement can return the patient to leading a normal life. benefits of Knee Replacement Surgery

Slide 20

What care is provided by Hospital after knee replacement surgery? Usually the first day after knee replacement surgery, you'll begin to work with a physical therapist who will teach you exercise to regain full leg and knee movement. During the hospital stay, the patient will attend physical therapy once or twice a day. An occupational therapist and nurse discharge planner will help you prepare for your return home. Your doctor may recommend a continuous passive motion (CPM) machine that bends and straightens your knee. You may be given special elastic stockings to reduce swelling. An anticoagulant medication also may be administered to help circulation and prevent blood clots.
