Knee Replacement

Knee replacement surgery, also known as knee arthroplasty, is performed to treat severe knee joint pain and restore knee function. The range of motion, stability and strength of the knees are evaluated when deciding whether you need knee replacement surgery. At the same time, the extent of the damage is determined by x-ray examinations.
