Between the thighbone’s end and the top of the calf bone is a layer of smooth cartilage in the knee joint. The knee may move freely thanks to the cushioning effects of this cartilage. This cartilage is deteriorating due to arthritis. It eventually becomes bone-dry. Bones rubbing against one another can result in pain, edoema, and stiffness. Common knee pain may spread to the thigh, calf, or back of the knee. Pain frequently gets worse following periods of inactivity. The inside of the knees typically deteriorates first, then the exterior and kneecap.
A total knee replacement is an operation in which the arthritic bone and damaged cartilage in the knee joint are removed. The knee has been replaced with a metal and plastic covering that mimic natural cartilage. This results in a painless, smoothly functioning joint. However, to allow the joint to function smoothly, the natural tendons and muscles are left in place. You can consult the Dr. Himanshu Gupta for total knee replacement surgeons in Greater Noida who are India’s top Orthopedic doctor who done thousands of successful surgeries.
