The knee is a complex joint that involves three bones: femur, tibia and patella that are united by ligaments to ensure the stabilization of the joint. Osteoarthritis (or osteoarthritis) can damage the knee, and medications are not always effective in treating this condition. Surgery can be the best solution: the knee prosthesis
The knee prosthesis is a surgical procedure that aims to replace, by a prosthesis, the knee or part of the knee damaged by osteoarthritis. This procedure is performed in people over 60 years of age who suffer from severe and prolonged pain. The prosthesis decision as well as the type to be used are taken by the surgeon at first, who estimates the seriousness of the situation and then by the patient. The knee prosthesis eliminates pain and ensures normal knee function.
The placement of prosthesis is a very important intervention that requires a lot of preparations:
Postoperative complications of knee prosthesis (in the medium and long term) can be in the form of persistent pain, fracture, infection, stiffness ... but the risk of death remains very rare.
The price of a knee prosthesis varies according to the age of the patient or also the clinic.
