Knee Joint Replacement

February 26, 2014

An artificial prosthesis is surgically implanted to take over the function of the disease knee joint.  Indications of knee joint replacement surgery are severe pain with lost of function. Very effective surgery with reported 90% satisfaction rate lasting about 20 years.

Novel advances:

  1. Precision surgery using Computer Aided Techniques and Robotic Surgery
  2. Minimally invasive techniques
  3. Compartmentalized approach where only the disease surfaced will be replaced
